During the spring, I met two Japanese high school exchange students on a weekly basis so I could practice my conversational Japanese. They are great girls and were really helpful (though I can’t say my skills have improved much). One of them went back to Japan last week, and the other one, Kanako, is going home this weekend. I thought we should have a last hurrah, so I took Kanako to Target today (her request). We were there so long I am surprised the sun was still out when we exited (good thing today is summer solstice). I did get some more Twizzlers Twerpz and and a bag of M&Ms of a mixed variety! It has plain, peanut, and crispy ALL MIXED TOGETHER. I have mixed (no pun intended) feelings about this.
Anyway, blah blah. Here is a photo of some mastodon plushes that Kanako gave me! She said I am the only person she knows in this country who would be able to fully appreciate them. I am flattered. I believe they are from the Nagoya World’s Fair.
