Staff Room Dialogues
A: What ball are we using for dodgeball?
B: I thought the volleyball would be fine.
A: Won't that hurt?
B: Yeah, but I think it's okay.
Then a few minutes after the dodgeball gets underway a different teacher comes running into the staffroom:
A: Tissue...I need a tissue!
B: Did someone get a nosebleed?
A: No, it's a chronic nosebleed.*
B: Oh, well that's good.
I mean I guess so. I guess it's good.
*(Note: The Japanese here is hard to translate...it really doesn't sound as dire as "chronic"...but the speaker was trying to imply that it wasn't caused by volleyball.)
