Bus shelter ads throughout Miami have lines like this one saying "Your Abuela Will Pee Herself." That's something about the Second City Loco, a newly formed all-Hispanic off-shoot company of Chicago’s world-famous Second City comedy troupe. The Second City Loco is making its debut at the Carnival Studio Theater this week with "El Show Mas Funny," a collection of comedic sketches created especially for Miami audiences—in Spanglish! In the tradition of the 70s sitcom "Que Pasa U.S.A." The dialogue will move back and forth between English and Spanish, creating bilingual comedy in a hybrid language that most Miamians can understand. But that is a sidetrack from my original intention to show you this Montessori school on Sunset Drive near SW 74th Avenue.

The Montessori method is an educational approach to children based on the research and experiences of Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori. It arose supposedly from the discovery of "the child's true normal nature" or self-directed learning activity. Truly, I am not sure what to make about this method, but it's here, and it tickled my curiosity.
