Good result against Harrison.

about Brooklyn Decker's tweet.

Glad he gets to see the dinosaurs, Hilde.

Have a good school year, Tom. The kids here don't start until Sept. 3. The Monday (Sept. 2) is Labour Day and we always start the day after Labour Day.

Nice and relaxed first round in the US Open.

Well, as soon as we agreed to visit the dino expo together, each time he saw me, he would say "dinos" with a grin, followed by "promised".

So, I couldn't not take him to the dinos. I'm glad that I checked out when the expo stops or I would be dealing with one disappointed boy on Friday.

The next thing the boy does when he sees me is fistpump. This is his Rafa sign and it means that he asks me how Rafa is doing. He's been saying that this summer is trophy biting time for Rafa. He hasn't been wrong so far. Let's hope it lasts this summer.

Sept. 2?
Ah, labour day is on May 1 here.

School starts on Monday here. Both my godchildren will be going to the big school (high school is the term, right?). My godson's mission is to get a girlfriend.
My goddaughter has hit puberty big time and she's in a "can't be bothered to wash or change clothes" phase. Not exactly the life of the party, these days.



Tom, does the school your work for have a strict policy on social media and how to interact with students?

Nadal serving better than Karlovic and having more stamina than a marathonian is never in doubt. He will cruise to the title...

We'll be in Mallorca for the super saturday and the finals... Will have to stay in the hotel room for 3 days I think

Oh shush, it's only R1.


You're travelling to Mallorca? Great!
Should we warn the Nadals, though?

Right, I'll send an email to Carlos Costa with a description of you and Eva.

Has Eva been Federised yet? Will you be travelling to Nadal territory with matching Swiss outfits and RF caps?

As the commentators said Nadal is the man to beat.

It's absolutely fine with me. And I'm sorry I've been mean to you.

So, what else you wanna know. I have not seen any signs of the girls having a crush on me, I probably wouldn't notice anyway But it would probably be good if they get one, so they will behave nicely
OK OK point taken.
Ahh, soon the girls will start making advances on you, young people are more aggrsssive these days ya know.
I asked how do you feel at school in general, and if there are any mean colleagues already or is everyone nice to you?
I don't know how much practice you have but at first it probably takes time to prepare the lessons and specifically measure the time for every part of the lesson beforehand (my experience).

You know when I was teaching for a few years kids came to me with all kind of problems as I was young of course and seemed approachable I guess. One thing I noticed already back then (and it was in the 90ies) that kids didn't have an adult to whom simply to talk to about things, who would guide & help them a bit. The parents were busy or whatever (in this new wild west capitalism here) and the other teachers were mostly older and not so nice, actually I wittnessed then being mean to the kids without any reason, living out their own frustrations I guess, horrible.
And if you ask why I left - the pay. Still below average here.
For me it's still the biggest miracle & joy to see the kids grow up & develop.
