Be Missed

I'm constantly fighting the use of "Chinglish" by my students. This has many sources: poor grammar, direct translation from Chinese, or just plain old mistakes repeated again and again.

So I didn't quite know what to do when a former student greeted me in the elevator: "Hi, James. Miss you every day!"

The old teacher in me told me to correct her. But it was just so sweet. Who doesn't want to be missed? So I let it be.

Are you missed? Think of loved ones far away. Imagine that they're thinking of you right now. Maybe even call them up, and tell them how you feel. They might just say, "I miss you."

And you'll be happier.
