As predicted, our “english” class is still struggling with finishing Citizen Kane on dvd. And Mrs. F never fails to impress the students. Well, technically, her failure excites us, but, whatever.
This is the scene where the newspaper reporter was in a library, and was talking to the “librarian”.
Mrs. F: (pausing the movie) Look at her, she‘s a librarian, she doesn’t even look like a woman! Her haircut and her voice, all the features are very unladylike.. I’m not even sure if she’s a woman to begin…
Me: (cutting her preach) Damn tranny!
The whole class went silent. Partly because they don’t understand what ‘tranny’ meant, others are actually dignified enough to not make jokes about some abnormal minority groups.
Mrs. F: (to everyone’s surprise) HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, good one!
She was the only one laughing. And it lasted for a whole minute. 60 fucking seconds of a true jewish laughter.
Our fellow classmate, Ray was asking a question.
Ray: (pointing at the old and the young Charles Kane) Are they the same actors?
Mrs. F: Why yes! Isn’t it incredible, make up can do a lot of wonderful things! It’s a wonder. Look at vogue magazine, and…
Me: (cutting, again) That ain’t make up. That’s photoshop.
Mrs. F: (annoyed) What?!
Me: Photoshop. You know. Using computers and all. (everyone started laughing)
Mrs. F: Gosh, I knew that, I’m not that old.
But you are Mrs. F, you smell like graveyards dirt.
Later, Mrs. F tried to explain what ‘foreground’ meant, even though nobody cared.
Mrs. F: (struggling) Foreground is, uh, gosh, it will be easier if I had a picture or a portrait…
Me: (showing her this picture i had inside my diary) I’ve got a picture. Look.
Mrs. F: (shrugs off) No, that’s not good enough.
Me: Excuse me?!
Mrs. F: (not showing any “sorry face”) I’m sorry, who is that anyway?
Me: (totally pissed off because she dissed my Tyra) My MOTHER!
Ah, I should’ve said YOUR mother, Mrs. F.
