It’s been a few weeks since I splashed Shin with paint. I feel really bad and I asked the teacher when he’s coming back, but the teacher tells me he can’t tell me that. There’s a new teacher named Ella and she knows Shin from college. She’s very nice and smart, and she likes to have us paint. I told her about the Gold Lady and the Man with the Four-Way Hips, and she always enjoys listening to my stories. I showed her some of my drawings and she told me I should definitely make more drawings and pictures.
I asked Ella if she thought Madonna was Wonder Woman and she smiled and said, “Madonna’s a wonder woman but she’s not Wonder Woman.” I asked her about Shin and she told me he’s in a night class with her and they get to read a lot of interesting stuff. I told her to ask him if she thinks about the Gold Lady and the Man with the Four-Way Hips. I know they miss him too.
