we are happy in the school today, teacher.

i asked jose corona why he always says, "we're happy in the school today, teacher." he says it in a lazy, high kind of voice. not high pitched. high like he's been smoking mota. so i asked him. "yes, we are happy today," he said. "no! why do you say that?" he smiled and said, "i've never said that before." "yes, you have, corona." "no, i never said." maybe he was stoned.

i'm sluggish today. bored even. the weather has been pretty cold the last couple of days, and i haven't really had energy to do anything other than sit on the couch, watch tv and eat. when i nap, i awake with a bad taste in my mouth. at least it encourages me to brush my teeth at random intervals during the day.
