A teacher told us one of his stories: When he went to KFC to buy some chicken in America (I forgot which province he went to.), he asked the clerk some peppers. But the clerk didn’t understand what he wanted because he misworded. The clerk gave him the “paper”, but not the “pepper”. Then, the clerk called the manager for help. The manager was smart and he realized that he wanted some peppers. Before the teacher left, the manager asked him where he was from, and taught him that he could speak the word “pepper”->“popper”, in order to distinguish “paper” and ”pepper”. After he told us this story, someone told it to my grammar teacher. But he has never heard this way to do so before. Therefore, he asked his foreign friends, and neither have they. It’s strange!! Maybe the manager fooled the teacher or it is the local wording. But the teacher said he has used this way for years, and no one says it is wrong! Please tell me if you guys know who is right. Thank you. :) For non-English speaker, it is difficult to pronounce in the right way though the vowel in “paper” pronounces longer than “pepper”.

If there is no love in your life, what will it be like?
"To love somebody deeply gives you strength.
Being loved by somebody gives you courage.
The soul cannot live without love."

I want to be an English teacher, but I think it's difficult to do.
Because being a teacher is really hard.
I teach my classmates English. But their positions are not good.
It makes me feel dispiriting.
