Inadvertent Duplicity

On getting up early and stumbling out to breakfast, we were confronted by Nate demanding random words for a game he was planning for the days lesson, the only requirement being that they had many letters, it wasn't expected that the students would understand the meaning. Words such as internationalisation (the brand-spanking new JET recruit, fresh from the brain washing of Tokyo Orientation), de-establishmentarianism (UWA boy - Arts/Philosophy degree) were being bandied about. I, however, opened my mouth without thinking, as per usual, and the first two words to leave my treacherous mouth were 'procrastination' and 'indecisive'. Raised eyebrows and sarcastic mutterings of incredible appropriateness, all before 8 am and coffee. Brutal.
