This last one lasted eight months.
That's not too bad for Japan.
I know I should be concerned about political uncertainty, the effect on the economy, my poor first grader having to relearn the prime minister's name (actually not sure she ever learnt that yet and considering she made up the words to the school song 'because I can't remember them and everyone sings so loud you can't hear anyway' I don't think she's too fussed.)
Anyway, I'm not worried about all that. What's got me worried is my street cred. with Grade 5-6 kids. Especially boys.
They have this thing going where every time I say sorry they say:
hige sori (shave your beard)
Santa no sori (santa's sled)
And I always come back:
Hatoyama- sori (Prime minister Hatoyama)
Only now I can't do that anymore. And I have only just stopped mucking up and saying Aso-sori, too.... sigh....
I know. If only everybody had these kinds of things to worry about, huh?
