昔々。。。
大学二年生の時、日本語の授業中に私達の先生は私と友人だけ「~くん」と呼んでいた。先生は中年女性だった。私は十九歳で、友人は二十三歳だった。他の同級生と「~さん」と呼んでいた。クラス大部分は女性でも沢山の男性だった。年上の男性と年下のいっても私と友人ばかり「~くん」と呼んでいた。
何故「~くん」と呼んだ?

A long time ago ...
In my second year of university, during my Japanese classes the teacher would call my friend and I by "~kun".
The teacher was a middle aged lady. I was 19 and my friend 23. Other students in our year were called "~san".
The class was mostly girls but there were plenty of boys too. No matter if they were younger or older only my friend and I were called "~kun".
Why were we called "~kun"?
