Rain & Wind

May 20, 2008

In the morning it was rainy and windy so hard today, so I escorted my daughter in her raincoat to school. After walked a while she asked me,


“Are you coming to school?”


I guessed she was embarrassed with me and I said,

“To the school zone, OK?”



When we approached there and came to see other pupils, she untied and pulled her hand from my hand.

The third grade of elementary school girl seems to sprout something complicated.

This is ‘ass’. It’s not a simple hieroglyph so I don’t explain, but it is pronounced like “kao” in Chinese, while “kao” in Japanese means ‘face’. You know Chinese Hanzi and Japanese Kanji have same roots, what a difference!

This is face. 🙂

This is “drug”.


The top part of it:  means ‘grass’,

and the bottom part:  means ‘fun’ or ‘comfort’.

It’s just because drugs called “Kanpo” in China or Japan have been made from grass or leaves,

not about ‘fun drug’.
