Today's faux pas check: In order to buy the food for lunch, Namiko-san and I went to the grocery store right next to our apartment building. We couldn't find protein bars like I wanted or any Mexican food for the tacos I'm going to make for the family tomorrow. More on that shortly. :D But we were waiting in line and I saw a pretty box with a sparkly butterfly on it, and it said, "Glamorous Butterfly" with no other description. I said, "What is this?" and before Namiko could explain, I picked it up. She started laughing. I flipped the box over and saw a diagram of a condom and I was like ohhhhhh I see now. :D I tried to read some of the katakana but then I put it back down. :)
(Tangent, but speaking of animals: last night I saw a cute mouse in Shibuya and a bat in the iris garden eating mosquitoes. :D)
Next comes a sushi photo parade!! These pictures are actually a little hard for me to look at because I'm so, so, so full right now that I don't want to see any more food. :) I ate almost all of these, but sometimes I took pictures of the sushi my family was eating and of the sushi on the conveyor belt.
It rained a little today but it is still so hot. Time for another cold shower, a little more homework, and then sleeeeeep. I am going to Ueno tomorrow with Rika, a Japanese student who contacted me through the Kanda University Language Buddies system. :D I hope she's nice! (I'm sure she is.)
