Yellow dogs and players

Yet more kindergarten classes this morning, and yet more singing hideously out of tune. now my singing is not great at the best of times, as any of my friends or family will testify, but the hacking cough I am currently plagued with has reduced my singing from barly tolerable to completely horrendous, and liable to deafen anyone within a ten block radius. I am really quite glad that I can't understand a word of Polish becuase I would bet anything that these children are laughing about how awful my singing is, either that or asking how much longer they have to put up with it for.
I had a completely uneventful afternoon of classes with 10-15 year olds, apart from a couple of comedy moments when one of my students, when asked whether he had any pets, told me he had a "yellow dog". Another student in a different class, when asked the same question, told me she had a baby brother. Finally, I was asking the younger ones what they wanted to be when they were older, to which one replied " I want to be a player"!
