Annette and I are planning to go to Japan for a holiday next year –
I’ve never been before and greatly want to go, and Annette LOVED her
time there, so she’s totally into it.
Anyway, I mentioned this to a friend who had lived in Japan for a
couple of years on one of those teach-the-Japanese-english schemes. The
following conversation resulted:
Mike: Yeah? How long will you be there for, yo?
JSR: I’m thinking we’ll be over there for 10 days or 2 weeks or so.
Mike: Kickass you will totally love it dude lots of gadgets totally techno
JSR: Quite. Also, there are little japanese schoolgirls. You know. In those uniforms. DAMN YOU, PIRO!
Mike: dude they will probably be terrifeid of you. all those clichees
about giant clumsy westerners and tiny tiny japanese are only slightly
exaggerated and shit. you will basically be treated like a giant shaved
talking bear, wandering the streets.
JSR: But _politely_ treated that way, I am sure! I do kind of resemble
a giant fat clumsy bear anyway – I actually plan to attack and destroy
Tokyo with my mighty paws and nuclear breath. REEEEEAAHHHRRRRR!
Mike: i dont know if that will score you points with schoolgirls
JSR: JSR is a friend to all children!
I must admit, I am really looking foward to this trip.
