December Challenge: Day 22

December Challenge, Day 22

Arthur Tashkesen, 1st grade teacher at Pearl Prep and coach at Kare Youth League

This is a friend that I’ve known since at least 7th grade. His vocabulary is ridiculously hilarious.

I wish I actively kept track of his Arthur-isms. We could probably have a short book by now.

One time, we were working in the concession stand at Kare, cooking burgers and stuff. He was yelling for someone’s order. The bag said, “Jenny,” but he was yelling “Jenna!” Remember the movie “Forrest Gump“? He was trying to imitate Forrest, but we interrupted him. “Art, it’s Jenny.”

There was a blank stare, followed by an eruption of laughter from everyone else except him.
