At my elementary school, it was a tradition for the 4th grade class to write and perform their own original play. The year that it was my turn, the teachers chose “water” to be the topic. Water. Right?! So we had to write these poems about water and then a composer came in and helped us turn our… When I was in fourth grade, we had a little show where we all dressed like a state of the...

“Many [in Japan] are taking tsubuyaku, the Japanese verb of choice for tweeting, rather literally. The word means mutter or murmer, and that is just what many seem to be doing, often to tens of thousands of followers.” I would feel much more comfortable using “murmer” instead of “tweet”.
By far the most surreal event of the morning is hearing a local metropolitan newsradio lead with the story that Corey Haim has passed away. Complete with the “breaking news!” intro. Hopefully it goes without saying that the surreality comes from leading with the story and not the story itself.
