Shifu Art: Here. You need to practice pushing open this door. Me: What? Shifu Art: *shoves studio door open* Practice. Me: (coherently) The door? Shifu Art: *points at door* Push. Me: Uh. Okay. *shoves door open* Shifu Art: No, *pushes hapless pupil aside* like this– *shoves door open again* Me: So more dramatically. Shifu Art: *sighs* No, not dramatically– Me: –because that’s what you did. *gestures broadly with arms*
Shifu Art: Just push open the door. Me: *shoves door open* Shifu Art: *is excited* Yes! Just like that! Again! Me: I literally just– *sighs. shoves door open* Shifu Art: Good. Keep practicing. Me: Pushing this door open. Shifu Art: Practice. Me: Door. Shifu Art: *walks away*
