I lean over to itch a mosquito bite on my leg, exposing my red pepper socks. The group of girls sitting near me ooo and ahhh, saying they are cute. One boy across the room blurts out pyonte, pervert, for the girls on the other side of the room to hear. Strange. I know what that means. Even stranger, I know why he said this. The Korean word for pepper is gochu, the same word used to say penis. So I'm wearing penis socks and he thought it would be hilarious to make a joke, one that he assumed I wouldn't understand, and so I threw him out of my class. I need to learn more bad words.
