Many thanks to Kristen for taking the time and caring enough to send a communal Valentine card to Hirakata school. The first we knew about it was Ch. waving it around and saying "who is this from?"

Mock not the afflicted- I pointed out the part on the card where it says "from Kristen."

SHE: So, maybe it is from England.

I point out the part next to "from Kristen" where it says "in London."

SHE: ah, so.

ME: which university did you study at again?

She makes a series of monkey noises before producing the English word for a female goat. I interpret this as meaning that she needs to hear the question again as usual.

ME: Which university did you go to?

SHE: Kansai Gaidai aha ahahaha but I cannot speak English.

ME: Or read, apparently.


I hereby dedicate this post to Kristen for her kindness. By the way, you were wrong about the new instructors: they are not "lovely people." They are, in fact, a collection of brainsick knuckle-dragging cretins.

I also dedicate this post to all students of Kansai Gaidai (past, present and future) who can read.

Awww, shucks. Thanks, Dan. I'm sorry it took so long to get there. I sent it on 8 Feb. I'll have to allow at least two weeks for any future correspondence to Japan. Is this the "Ch" I know? Give her my best.
Provided that your best regards may be expressed via the medium of horrifying violence, I'll be more than happy to oblige.
