This is one of the common flowers in Jaco- and it is what Angie brought for me last week during tutoring. She beamed as she handed me the flowers and as I reached for them one of the flowers fell off the stem. "Oh no!" I exclaimed, "my beautiful flowers!" She excitedly reached for the stem and said, "It doesn't matter, now I can show you THIS!" She pulled the stem apart until there was a little piece left that was a little pointy. She then stuck it on her nose and as she wildly waved her arms and danced, she shouted, "I'M PINOCCHIO, I'M PINOCCHIO!"
Remember, we tutor in a restaurant.
It was embarrassing, but hilarious. Until she took it off her nose, and stuck it on mine! She looked really silly with the little stem on her nose.... I'm sure I looked even more silly! She pointed her finger at me and laughed and laughed. I couldn't help but laugh at myself. Tutoring with Angie is always a joy!
