Teacher’s Day…

…yesterday here in Taiwan. It goes back to being Confucius’ Day, as Confucius was and the model for all didactic excellence. (Well, so Confucius say.) Unfortunately, it seems Taiwan’s big cheeses[1] think there is no better way to honor teachers on “our day” than by enabling us to fulfill our calling — in a word, we stil had to work. I think Heavenly Order might be off on this one. Bougis say, “Happy Teachers’ Day OFF!”

[1] It hits me every now and then: very little cheese here in Taiwan, at least any worthy of the name.
