Private Teacher/Student Meeting in an Isolated Location? Um..

I dunno what it is about gyms at my schools, but I think I once again caught something shady going down. A male gym teacher and a female student were supposedly talking during lunch in his gym office even though I usually see him meet with students in the teacher’s room.

I had wandered into the gym to take a quick nap but the student came out before I could lie down. Puzzled, I asked what she was doing there. Her response was that she was talking to the teacher. I thought it was odd but didn’t jump immediately to conclusions. It wasn’t until 30 seconds later, when the gym teacher came out and gave an “I’ve been caught” look that I started suspecting something.

So a female student and a male teacher were having a private meeting in a secluded location which deviates from the usual meeting spot and was also held at a time when most other students and teachers would be occupied. Hmmm…

This is speculation and completely unsubstantiated, but still, one can’t help but wonder.

Let me drink in peace!

I’m currently sipping on some whiskey I just bought from the neighborhood liquor store. I’m becoming a regular there and the owner let me know that she noticed.

I walked in, greeted the 60 year old woman who runs  the place, picked up my poison and proceeded to check out.

With a smile, she commented on how I had just bought a bottle last week. Finish it already? Hell yes, I finished it already! At the end of a full day of  smiling, following seemingly arbitrary rules that none of the Japanese teachers or principals can explain, avoiding konchos and resisting temptation from high school girls, few things hit the spot better than alcohol. Well, nothing allowed (legalize it!) in this country, at least.

I drink daily here. That’s more (more frequently but not more quantity) than I in did college. But because I’m a sensei I’m supposed to be an angel? Fuck that. As a foreigner teaching English, I have some complications that can only be simplified through a vice. So let me drink in peace.  Besides, there are much worse things I could be doing to CTFD.

That said, I still have it much better than the Japanese teachers. I don’t know how they fulfill their teacherly duties while maintaining the moral high ground set on them from the community. I wouldn’t be surprised if teachers comprised a large percentage of Japan’s growing suicide rate.

Anyway, I need another drink.

Holy Hell, I think the gym teachers at my school are having an affair!

While I can’t say this with 100% certainty, I’m pretty sure the gym teachers at my school are having an affair. I accidentally saw a glimpse of something while taking a siesta in the gym. I was trying to get a mid-day snooze in before being rudely awakened by the gym’s office door slamming. I peaked my head out from my makeshift bed/hiding spot to see what looked to be the male and female gym teachers kissing before walking out. Even if they weren’t swapping spit, they were still displaying an usually high amount of friendliness, much more than they usually do.

I wouldn’t have mentioned it if not for 2 things: 1, she’s hot (and I’m jealous) and 2, he’s married.

Adultery is on the rise in Japan and studies show that teachers tend to get it on with their fellow teachers. It was only a matter of time before the 2 trends converged and teachers started having affairs with each other. I need to figure out how to get in on this.

Anyway, the gym provides a perfect playground for promiscuous senseis. It’s located far from everything and the chances you’ll get caught are slim to none. Unless there is a class or reason to be in the gym, no one–except napping English Teachers–ever goes to the gym. And if someone were to show up, those 2 have reason to be there and could easily play it off.

This could turn out to be pretty interesting. I’m keeping an eye out for more evidence.
