No, no, mo, he face!

No! I haven’t gone crazy, even thought the title of the post may make it seem that way. You know when it’s cooler outside, sometimes you get the foggy windows, right. It’s always great fun to take your index finger and draw an impromptu picture on the window. I still can’t resist doing it sometimes. I saw a student draw a face on the foggy window, and I remember seeing it before…during Halloween. I don’t remember where I saw it, but i remember that there was a jack=o-lantern with the same kind of face. I like to call this face the “No, no, mo, he face” or “ののもへface.” Why do I call it that? Well that’s exactly what it is, it’s a face made from four Japanese hiragana characters two “no” characters, a “mo” character, and an “he character:

It kind of reminds me of what I used to do in school with the word “boy” in order to make a face.

Just a short post for today.
