But! In other exciting news, you may have recently seen the middle school competition special of VS Arashi. It was pretty awesome for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to a middle school boy confessing his love for Aiba and a bunch of middle school fangirls freaking out and crying out of fannish delight. But the best part about it was the the winning team included two girls from my middle school! Yes, my students are the national Rolling Coin Tower champions. That's just how great my school is. Today at the new semester ceremony, the principal called them onstage after all the athletics teams who had won awards and showed the school their trophy and medals. He asked them to say a few words about Arashi, to which, after much embarrassment and giggles, one of them said "Arashi were really really cool!" and the other added, "They smelled good." I'm... not really sure about that one XD; But at any rate, it was really excellent to see my kids get to meet Arashi on national TV!
