- Describe a moment in your life when you laughed so hard that you cried, had a drink come out your nose or peed your pants.
- If you could start your life over from birth, what is the one thing you would change about yourself?
- What is the one thing you can’t live without?
Laida: I had a friend who was very, very funny. He could make anyone laugh about anything. He got along with everybody. One time, we were driving somewhere, to the beach I think, and he was telling me jokes and I was laughing so hard that we had to pull over on the highway so I could use the bathroom! The car only had two doors and my friend was a big guy. It took so much for me to climb over him and out the door so I could get outside. I felt so much better after I relieved myself. He was so funny. I miss my friend.
Keiko: If I could start my life over, I would learn how to dance when I was a child. Dance in Japan is traditionally very slow and not like it is here in the United States. I love dancing now, but I’m probably not the best dancer and I think it’s because I never learned how.
Yumiko: If I could start my life over, I would learn how to snowboard as a child. I think it’s easier to pick up hobbies like these in your childhood. I just went snowboarding last week and twisted my leg. Snowboarding is very fun but difficult to learn.
Haruna: If I could start my life over, I would have liked English when I was in junior high school. When in junior high, I hated English and didn’t try very hard. But now, I like English so I enjoy coming to class.
Has anyone ever told you a story that seemed like it’s gone on forever? What did you do or say to get him or her to “wrap it up?”
