The presence of a toddler turns this group of multilingual, taciturn teachers into shiny-eyed grannies, incapable of forming real words in either Korean or English. Childbirth among close family members is one of the only acceptable reasons for absenteeism. Baby photos must be wielded with care lest an entire half-hour be lost to rapturous cooing.

As I looked around the room, my eyes fell on the root of the weird vibes: a used condom. I needed a few moments to think. I stepped out to get water from the kitchen, and by the time I returned, the condom was gone.
