QW 032512 “You’re ambiguous”

My Saturday morning routine was successfully completed. Last time I was 5 minutes late for class, but I’ve learned enough to be able to sit in front of my pc with a headset on and get ready for a Skype session with Eric 5 minutes before the lesson started. My speech during lessons is always recorded and reviewed by the speaker for self-feedback purposes, but the speech of tutors is not. Is there any way to record conversations on Skype? (There might be) If I can review what a tutor said, I can learn a lot form the way he or she talks.

I’m writing this QW piece listening to the recording of the Saturday lesson and trying to remember what Eric said during a lesson. Right now on the recording, I’m telling Eric that I searched his name on Facebook and found several names of his including the fake ones some hackers had created, just as he had said in the previous lesson. He told me he was surprised to know that I did try to find him on Facebook, saying that he couldn’t have interested his student to such an extent that he or she feels like contacting him on Facebook, and finally, a bit awkwardly, asked me if I wanted him to friend me.

I knew that he said so simply out of his "professionalism” as a tutor not to demotivate his student in taking Skype lessons. I wasn’t interested in expanding the circle of my Facebook friend unnecessarily anyway, so I explained to him that I did the search just out of curiosity and he didn’t have to bother to add me on his Facebook friend list, concluding my remark like “So I’ll stop being curious about you.” rather jokingly. Then he, a quite nice guy, replied to me that any of my curiosity toward him would always be welcome. Then I shot back like “You’re ambiguous this morning.” And he said “Oh yes.” with laugh. Nice chat.
