I forgot to add, after yesterday’s back to back, I drove home with the silliest of grins on my face. Oh whoppee, did I feel like I was walking [or driving] on cloud 9.
We got Jakob in class today. He’s a Californian guy who’s joining us for a year and boy oh boy do we get our weekly dose of American humour / pop culture.
– “You! Gumby! Do you know who Mr.Gumby is? Well go look him up tonight”
– “It’s okay, I’m just the crazy American yogi who laughs at his own jokes”
– [while we are lying down in savasana before pavanamuktasana] “And that concludes our warm up…”
– [while in spine twisting] “And after this, we are going to do 20 jumping jacks and 50 push ups” 😯
It was freaking hilarious when today during padahastasana, during the usual dialogue of “Push your knee back, LOCK YOUR KNEE, you have no knee …” he suddenly burst out in Malay [albeit heavily accented] : KUNCIKAN LUTUT AWAK. [literally, lock (as in key and lock LOCK) your knee!]
It was a good thing I was in padahastasana with my face smushed against my shins, because I was giggling throughout the posture. It wasn’t that I was mocking his accent, but rather, it was so HEART WARMING and DELIGHTFUL and KEEEWWWWT [cute being dragggeeed] that he attempted to speak our national language!
Mel and I caught each other’s eye in the mirror and a giggle escaped from me. “Yeah, I know a little Malay” and we just smiled. It was oh so cute! He did it again during head-to-knee, lost my concentration and fell out. Sigh, I should really work on this.
Ok, off to bed.
