Open 24/1

Posted in Japan, Life at 10:05 am by Acorns

It happens. After one has been up for a full 24 hours. One begins to consider the truly deep and profound questions of living in Japan. Why do they only sell taco flavored Doritos? Why do three hambuurgaas + fries and a drink cost less than the hambuurgaa meal? How does Sanko make umbrella sales when they are selling an umbrella (the same umbrella) as Meets (they are in the same building) for 4 times as much? Why is there a balloon in my sink?


When such times arrive you must sit back and remember that none of it will matter in the morning. Mornings are for grumpily studying Katakana. Hmm. Hiragana rocks.

I do believe I shall get some sleep.

    The universe is full of mysteries. In the immortal words of Douglas Adams: “There is a theory which states that if anybody ever discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

    Perhaps the bacteria in the sink were throwing a party when you arrived and hastily attempted to clean it up. Being bacteria, they couldn’t quite hide the evidence of their little gathering and abandoned the balloon, hoping it wouldn’t be discovered and used against them as evidence.
