I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it before, but my mother teaches a good number of piano students ranging in age from about six to about twelve. As Christmas approaches, some students feel obliged to share in the gift of giving. That is, my mother’s students sometimes give her gifts this time of year.
This year, she’s really raking it in. These are just a few of the things she has been gifted: a scarf, a purse, some cookies, a bottle of Korean wine, a cutting board with dried fruits and nuts, a baking set, and a box of chocolates.
I really need to get a job in this teaching business!
