Looking back on my older posts I discovered that I wrote more about the things that made life here quirky and different from life in North America. Those posts were fun to write and they offered the reader something more interesting than just another "diary Blog," which I'm afraid this place has become. I will continue to write about myself and my wife 'cause that is somewhat unavoidable, but I'd also like to get back to doing the silly and informative stuff that made me want to blog in the first place. Unfortunately, I am so darned busy, that I will only be able to manage to post once a week or so. Hope you enjoy....
We all go shopping. It's a necessity.
You go to the supermarket and pick up the stuff you need without too much thought about the items you are choosing. After living here for so long the mystery of finding what I want has disappeared and I stroll through the aisles unconcerned about the labels in Japanese, which once caused me many problems; I'll talk about those in the next post. What throws me for a loop is the English I encounter. I generally don't look for inane examples of strangely written phrases; there are plenty of sites around already devoted to unearthing the bizarre and wacky world of Japlish. Yesterday while Crispy and I were picking out groceries, products kept jumping out at us and making us laugh. Thought I'd share them with you.
