    Are you seriously telling me your students don’t get Friends references?? How old are they?? They are still sending reruns here for like the 10th time. It just does not get old! “How you doin’?” Go Joey :)”We were on a break!” (It’s on right now actually!!)
    Stop laughing at my name! I could change it to something easier to say, but I don’t really see what that would be. ;p
    Tigers are beautiful animals. Great analogy! Hey, wanna see my tiger?? haha 😉
    What YouTube video? You have a channel?

    Yup–that’s what I’m saying. We’re getting older, and they’re getting younger. If I’ve got an 18 year old student, then she was born in 1991. Friends started airing in 1993 I believe–which put them at the ripe age of 2.

    The students get younger each and every year…

    Oh, thanks! Do they not send reruns in the US? I’ll be 24 this year, I don’t consider myself old. But everyone here knows “friends” by heart.

    The tiger handler is Cindy…and Yes–she is 100% hard core! (I guess you have to be, given her job!)

    Yeah–Ella started crying pretty soon thereafter. 🙂

    One of the tigers tore my pants–which I thought was totally awesome! I still wear them with pride. “What happened to your pants? Tiger tore them!”

    Hahaha! Totally Indiana Jones of you 🙂
    Poor Ella, worried about her daddy.

    Ok, finally listened to this, twice in a row, very cool. Thankfully, I have already been doing this for a while before “meeting” you and other peeps on twitter, but what a delight and how refreshing to hear this analogy, so broken down in a very common sense way.
    I totally wish I had been hearing this stuff for the first two years after stepping out of the covert closet. But I guess I needed to decide for myself that fluency is not what I have been chasing – is been freedom all along.
    Thanks for sharing the tiger – I finally get it.

    Pam (yes, posting and listening on May 27, 2009)

    Thanks, Pam. I honestly didn’t think this (silly?) analogy would have taken off as it has. I any event, your fluency vs. freedom reply is *spot*on* !
