As I walked into the teacher's lounge this morning, Jon the American teacher asked me if I had heard the news about Jeremy Lin.
"Jeremy Lin? No. What's up with him?" I asked.
"He was traded, Albert." Jon told me this in a calm fashion.
"What? Where is he going?" I asked him anxiously.
"To Miami? Wow! So he is gonna be a teammate with James, huh?" It seemed that I accepted reality in the matter of minutes.
"Well, yeah Albert, but also there is another thing I wanna tell you." he spoke again.
"What is that?" I was wondering what he would like to tell me more about.
"Today is April 4th Fool's Day. Gottya Albert." he burst into laughter.
... Damn it! He really scared the heck out of me this time.
