My dreams have been answered
I’ve been waiting for this moment since I stepped into the country, all three times. No, it’s not the advent of Godzilla, nor does it have anything to do with a gigantic earthquake destroying all of the Nova offices across the country. It’s something of much greater importance… Nani des sho? I can hear you say, well actually I can’t hear you say that at all because a) you all live in countries far far away, and b) I’m listening to my ipod so even if you had a really big voice, I still wouldn’t hear you and c) you probably don’t know any more Japanese than the standard Konichiwa and Arigato Gosaimus, which you probably can’t pronounce properly anyway (I can’t really talk, the only other thing I know how to say is “I’m sorry, I don’t love you anymore so I’m going to change my phone number”). Drum roll please… The heavens have opened up and graced us with it’s juicier white fluffy nectar (because all nectar is fluffy), it snowed! The stuff that falls from the sky and tricks you to fall on your ass as you slide down the street, half on purpose and half by accident. It snowed!
The rest of Japan has been mocking Tokyo as blizzards hit the good part of the country, snowing in Nova offices left right and centre, but Tokyo with it’s dreaded warmnesses created by the excessive amount of concrete, has escaped the snow for the last few years. But it let it’s defences down and snow plummeted into every nock and cranny of this city (except for brothels, or any hot place for that matter) and Tokyo was transformed from a mass of dreary grey into a wonderful winter wonderland. There must have been at least 10cm in 24 hours, snowmen and snowballs galore! My students told me it’s been five years since snow fell and stayed on the ground, but another one of my students told me it was only three years, but then again another student told me that she decided to learn English to pursue her dreams to become a translator because, and I’m not joking here, I wish I was, because whilst her cat was on it’s death bed it told her to do it. That’s not a type, her CAT told her to do it. And on that note I’m going to go outside and play in it some more before it all disappears forever.
