First Grade

Guess who I'm making friends with at school. Guess. The Japanese moms. There are four Japanese kids in Mermaid's class, not counting M. She's the only one with a randoseru. It's causing jealous fits amongst the Nihonjin kids. Mermaid was also glad that Izumi-chan has an obento, too. Seeing as lunch costs $3.00 a day, I'm not sure why everyone isn't making an obento.

Also, Danny will be happy to know that my car is a hit with the primary age children. I got lots of "oooh, pretty car!" when I went to pick Mermaid up the first day. Some people appreciate turquoise.


  1. Good laugh, this one. Makes me remember how I did everything to avoid turning right in our tuna boat suburban because the windshield wipers would go on everytime. Still expect them to go on now when I make that right hand turn...I think you look good in turquoise :)

  2. I'm jealous. I tried finding a good colored car, but ended up with boring silver. No wasabi for me. I looked at a great orange car, and was loving the thought of having a mikan car, but we couldn't get the price we needed on it. Sigh. Now I'm stuck with a ginkakuji car.
