Kawaiso Stories

かわいそう = kawaiso = pitiful

After the summer break, I gave my high school girls an assignment. Write out something fucked up that happened during your vacation! We then voted on the stories. The kid with the most crazy fucked up story won a prize! Here's some of the gems.


I once ate 17 bananas at Boy Scout camp. True story.


She was the winner in one class. Seriously, she lost here saved game on a Nintendo game and every 17 year old girl was crying with sympathy. Or was it empathy.


Barfing was a common theme. Did you barf that much when you were 17? Ummm... let me rephrase... did you bar from eating too much? Once when we were 17, I drank a bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 and "threw up all I had eaten".


Me too.


It was a diamond studded Lil John crunk cup.


A couple girls got shit on. I was happy that I got to teach her the word poop.




She was absent for the homework and came up with this on the spot. A for effort.


I almost started crying, but everyone else in class was saying shogunai... that's life. The girl whose save game got deleted got more reaction. Welcome to Japan.


1st time it has ever happened in Japan.


Could be worse...


She wrote in the 3rd person to keep her anonymity. Didn't work too well when she had to read her story to everyone in class.


I guess there are giant scarab beetles running around her place.


Insects were another popular theme.


I'm not sure how to melt a cake either. It was at a Cake Viking, which is all you can eat desserts, so don't feel too bad for her.


Not really the assignment, but I'm very happy for her.

Awesome, I love it. You have some teaching ahead of you, but their English doesn't seem too bad, good job so far. =)

The next big assignment is to write scary ghost stories. The most scary gets candy. I'm hoping for some gems.
