I just asked my Korean friend. This is the break down:

Anything grown from the earth is considered bread.

Except things that have a certain shape e.g a lettuce leaf

Chilies are bread , he said "spicy bread".

This is absolutely mind boggling. Surely not?! I need further clarification haha

I showed my coworker this thread and she told me to tell zola that her Korean friend probably escaped from a mental institute recently. Her words, not mine. Well, some of them are mine: I paraphrased.

   She very earnestly went on to explain that the Korean use of the word "bread" extends only to bread-like food such as croissants, pastries, bagels, sandwiches etc. Cakes, pies, and cookies are excluded, as are any breakfast cereals and porridges. The claim that fruits and vegetables (such as tomatoes) are considered to be bread genuinely flabbergasted her. Flabbergasted.

Someone should tell that to one of my CoTs. Here's an exchange we had one morning:

CoT: Mr. Tim, have some bread.
M: *looks at it* Oh, I think that's cake.
CoT: In Korea we call this bread.
Me: It says "cake" right there on the package. In korean.
CoT: In Korea we call this bread.
Me: K.

Yeah, lmao, pretty sure this is going to be area/individual-specific.

I'd love to get a survey done to find out just how much of the population consider "this thing" or "that thing" bread.

I've been told the same thing about chilis being "spicy bread" btw.

Firstly, Zola is a godamn man. She? Come on.

Secondly, is your coworker coming at me and my good friend?
We are both kind of offended. Is your coworker even really Korean?. Doesn't even know spicy bread. Kind of shocking.

Anyway, I'm about to clockout for the day. Gonna have a afternoon snack. Some citrus bread (orange) and green bread (broccoli).

You should just start generalsing everything at school.

"The vegetables and grains we had for lunch were amazing."

"Can you pass me some stationery?"

"Wow, beverages are refreshing!"

I got my first ever complaint at the end of a chain that went child-parent-???-principal-supervisor-me today. Our new P and VP changed everything when they arrived (because, of course they did) and now I'm teaching English conversation club for either 2 or 3 hours every Tuesday and Thursday for about 6 weeks. They're during regular hours forcing me to skip or move my regular co-teaching classes despite the fact that I'm free every afternoon. I teach these classes alone which I suspect is a violation of my contract and/or law because they take place in the morning. Anyway, 3 hours (3x 40 mins) is too long for 3rd and 4th graders and I've mentioned this myself to my supervisor. This is also what the complaint was regarding. So I asked if the class would be shortened and was told, let's say it together now, "No, it's impossible". Why even tell me?

Movies it is. Until one of the high-performing students' mums complain, I guess.

I'm really frustrated that all of the sudden none of the alphabet links in the bomb games are working. Every time I download one of the bomb games the alphabet letters don't link out. The letters JUST disappear. I suspect it's this new Korean version of powerpoint....UGH! :evil:

I'm going to try this, except I'm going to call every fruit and vegetable "kimchi".

Apologies! Genders are so complicated.
Is it okay if I just refer to you as 'bread'?

One hundred percent. I had a story with a choose your own adventure path in it and it was making no sense today.

Okay kids, how do you impress the princess? A) Play her some music B) Fight a monster C) Give her flowers

Music! Music!

Okay, here we go. Music it is!

So I click the PPT (Sorry, 한쇼) link for music and the next slide is a picture of a massive dragon on a castle, surrounded by fire. "You have encountered the dragon, do you run or do you fight?"

THE FACK?

I know that Gyeonggi-do has deleted Microsoft Office, but it's still installed on my computers with the functions for PPT limited to viewing only. Even the standalone MS PPT Viewer app isn't perfect sometimes, but if you can find the original "stripped down" version of the program, it's ace.

If it looks like cake, spelled as cake then it's definitely bread.

I low-key feel like my students and co-teachers might be relieved if I did that.
