I just got the following email from Amy, the little sister in the brother-sister team that I teach on Sundays, with regard to the several pounds of American and Korean ribs that I had given her family earlier today in my guise as Saint Meatolas:

Amy's mention of "the menus" refers to our July 28th jjong-party: I've asked the kids to think about what they'd like to eat on that day, since we're going to have both lunch and dinner. Now that Amy has sampled my cooking, she's saying she doesn't care what I serve, since she knows that whatever I choose to make will taste good.
The Korean text, above, is actually mostly English. It says:
Teacher! (tears-of-joy emoticon) Thank you; this is truly the best gift everrrr!
Thank you very much—thank you! (tears)
It was really, really delicious—the most, the MOST delicious!
You should set up a restaurant!!! (hee hee hee)
Have a good day, and thanks always! ("Ohhh!" emoticon)
My job is done.
