I thought I was supposed to walk home today. After asking M. and N. how their opera trip went(The music classes got to see an opera today! I saw the same opera last year in beginning strings class), I headed off to walk home. Usually my grandma comes to escort me, but she was nowhere in sight. I just figured she'd gotten lost because she was trying to find a shortcut walking home. Turns out today I had a dentist appointment, and my mom had to chase after me in the car once she realized I had forgotten to wait for her.
Anyhow, I really don't like the dentist's place, because it takes so much time, and it smells strange in there. Also, the receptionist lady (who I heard was the dentist's wife?) never smiles, so she kind of scares me. The good thing is that one of the dentist's assistants gave me some toothpaste, a toothbrush, and a sugar-free lollipop. She actually remembers my name, and was talking about how much taller I grew each year. She also mentioned that my last name is rare. (People say I don't look much like a Chinese and my last name is a Korean last name?!) Oh well. My last name is only two letters, anyhow.
In science, after we did an experiment with marshmallows, washable markers, and dirty toothpicks (we got to eat marshmallows - clean ones - afterward), Mr. Brown put on a video before returning to his laptop. He spends all his time looking at it, at least all of his spare time. I wasn't sure whether I was supposed to watch the video. It seemed like the images were a bit bad-quality since I could see blotches on it (which happens when you have a pixely image). I read a book some of the time. I hope Mr. Brown didn't notice. At least we didn't have one of those video worksheets. I really hate those.
