For Love of Tango Buchou and Sushitrain Slots

Hi everyone!

It's here again, your Monday Hello English blog, brought to you by Elisa sensei. I'm no longer going by the pen name Goo-sensei as it's rather overcast today, which I LOVE being from Seattle and all.

This weekend, I had a delicious sushi train dinner with my co-workers. At the restaurant we noticed that there was a slot on the table where you could insert all your sushi dishes. What a dangerous concept! What is to stop you from eating 15 or 20 plates of sushi? The only thing that stops me from eating 20 plates is that everyone at the table can see my growing mountain of 100 yen plates. Since I don't want to hear them whispering 'That girl is really eating 20 plates of sushi?' or see their judgmental stares. I usually stop at 10.

With this slot invention, I don't even know how many plates of sushi I consumed. But it was well over the recommended 10 plates, I'm sure. Ahh! What freedom!

Secondly, I went to see Hotaru no Hikari (spoiler: Bucho does a 3 minute tango dance, dressed in drag) at the Movix theater with Acco on Sunday and was delightfully surprised to be given my drinks and popcorn on a bright orange tray that fits right into the cup holder on the theater seat! How convenient and great! No more holding popcorn on your lap and spilling all over, now you have a portable tray! Sasuga Japan!

I have yet to find an satisfactory translation for 'sasuga' - literally means 'as I would expect from'...but it just doesn't sound natural. I'll keep you posted as I ponder this conundrum.

See you next week readers!
