1) Sleep until eleven.
2) Run out of toilet paper.
3) Stumble to the store to get some, startling a kid so he crashes his bike and skins his knee right in front of me. Ask “Are you okay?!” in English a couple times before you remember you’re in Japan. Give him tissues.
3a) His parents show up in the car. Parents, in Japanese: “Did you fall down again!?” His little brother, hanging out the window, in English: “Bye-bye!”
4) Come back and go back to bed another six hours.
5) It didn’t work.
I feel like I’ve been microwaved in a tin cup. As for some reason invariably happens when I get sick, I want to play Pokemon.
I guess I could have caught this from nearly any of the kids – there were a lot of runny noses this week.
(I for some reason don’t feel my Policy applies to this, I think because I think the Bye-bye kid is cute and the tin cup image is funny. It’s a flexible Policy?)
