Today I had a revelation whilst in the toilet.
Note I said “in” the toilet and not “on” the toilet. This is because today I was putting the finishing touches to the perfect squat toilet technique. You may remember that one of my earliest posts was on this subject http://philsjapanblog.blogspot.com/2006/07/9th-july.html
It occurred to me that my experiences with Japanese squat toilets and my experiences as a teacher were identical: the first time you do it’s degrading, you’re unsure of the correct procedure, and hesitate and you’ll make a mess.
And, the corollary to that is, as my squatty technique improves so does my teaching.
Incidentally, on that subject, had a great one today. Everything went according to plan with no mistakes.
Taught a good lesson as well
(bum-tish)Thanks ladies and gentlemen, you’ve been a great audience.
