비타민 C!

I haven't felt great all day.  I woke up with no energy and I felt pretty weak.  

It didn't help that I had Basic B27 to look forward to today.  That class makes all the teachers (even the native Korean ones) want to hide in the corner.  I saw Danny on Tuesday just after he'd had them and he looked like he wanted to cry.

Rahee had an open class today which means that the parents (mothers, Korean fathers are too busy with man things) come and sit in on the classes.  She was so stressed out that she had a nightmare that one of her students committed suicide in class.  Yes, Korean mothers are that bad.

One of the mothers brought Rahee a couple boxes of fruit flavored 비타민(Vitamin) C tabs.  There were probably 100 tabs in each box, so she gave a couple sheets to each of the teachers.  Because I was bored, hungry and not feeling well, I proceeded to eat 24 tabs.  I expected to have a rocking stomachache, but I didn't.  In fact, I felt quite a bit better.  Maybe I'm coming down with something and the 비타민 C was just what I needed, though I probably didn't need it in that dosage.

Vitamin C is a popular "boost" here.  They sell it in tabs, drinks, powders (for water), etc.  You name it, I bet vitamin C comes in that form here.

Good night!

  1. Hope your class was not the horror show you thought it was going to be.

    Oh, just so you know, you can get to much vitamin C.

    Hope you feel better
