Eek! What a Surprise

Well, I don't know if this should be in humor or not but it was funny to me.Well, when I took my first test I kinda didn't know it was a test. I thaught it was just a reveiw.So we went over a lot of techniques and class was just about over.Sensei told us to sit and breath with our eyes shut or something like that.And while we were doing that I was thinking about what Sensei was doing.All of a sudden I heard some crashing. It really started to scare me.Going through my head was someone coming up and attacking me .Then I heard someones footsteps come up to me and then go sit down.
When we were able to open our eyes my certificate was sitting in front of me.Then class ended and my heart was still racing.After that I was so happy!

Re: What a Surprise

that was classic!!! My first test was pre-arranged, but I didn't know I'd be getting two Ukes on my rondori, so I was a bit freaked out.

Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
