A lifetime of poverty makes you good at being poor. Although Antonio Graceffo desperately needs a job, he almost storms out of his orientation, when the manager tells him: “We encourage the teachers to use pair work, but what will do if you have an odd number of students?”


“You’re joking, right?”


“No, I am serious. Sometimes you will have an odd number of students. What could you possibly do in that instance?”


“That is a difficult problem.” Answers Antonio, “one that I have never encountered in 26 semesters of working as a school teacher. If that happened, I would probably just commit ritualistic suicide.”

The manager tells Antonio, “Many of our teachers are intelligent. But some do not know how to operate a CD player. Please demonstrate that you can insert a CD in the CD player and press play.”


‘Insert this’ thinks Antonio.

He is the author of the books, “Warrior Odyssey’ and “The Monk from Brooklyn.” He is also the host of the web TV show, “Martial Arts Odyssey,” which traces his ongoing journey through Asia, learning martial arts in various countries.
