‘Teacher, is it true that the world is going to end this year?’ he asked. Indian and highly inquisitive. I guess 2012 is still a scary set of number for some people. Then I turned to him to offer him the best answer I could come up with – nobody knows when the world is going to end, we will do our very best to be really good people as long as we live. But someone else did a better a job before I could do mine. The boy next to him. He was wise. Way beyond his age.
‘Wei, megi aku pun expire 2013 kot. Lek ah.’
And laughter was everywhere.
Was I stunned?
Yeah. I really love my job.
Oh. They’re 13-year-old kids. Biologically protected by the honesty gene. And innocence.
Looks like the world will last another year thanks to megi.
Hehe. How are you guys doing?
