Time is Not Fixed

I have to teach a one-on-one conversation class with an eleven year old boy with no book or any other material whatsoever. That was one of the longest 60 minute periods of my life AND it was the first time we met, so there were plenty of starter type questions to work with. I sincerely hope I don't have to teach him for the entire year, because I will lose my mind.

He is a lovely, lovely boy, but not especially fluent. I have completely exhausted all my sports chatter and dissected Kung Fu Panda with him. He likes bears and swimming. He has a scary older sister. He does not like pasta.

What the hell are we going to talk about next week?
