Yesterday we finally had class after three snow days due to the third largest snow in my city’s history. My friends Chuck and Betsy in Upstate New York will think it is not that much, but 16 inches, 40cm, is a huge snow where I live.
Monday was the day it snowed, so no school. Tuesday everything was a snow packed mess, so no school. Wednesday the residential streets were still bad, so no school. Yesterday we finally had school.
I normally have 7 or 8 students in the classroom and 6 or 7 in Zoom. Yesterday I only had one brave soul in the classroom. What makes this interesting is that she is from Sudan. Yes, Sudan as in a country in Africa that never has cold weather.
We often have people donate things for the moms in my class. Someone had donated a small purse. My colleague who coordinates the program for the school keeps everything in her closet. She told me about the bag and suggested we draw a name of those in attendance to reward someone. I mean just because some designer guy named Vuitton doesn’t make sense to me it is worth that much. lol
My student from Sudan was the only there, so we decided to give the small purse to her. After class, my colleague let me know she had looked up the value of the small designer purse. It is worth about $1,000.00. I could not believe it. How can a small purse be worth that much.
I am glad my student from Sudan received it. I will tell her next week how much it is worth in case she wants to sell it.
