I was going to do a shag talk ban for a while but I have to share this cause fuck it made me laugh.
Last night hub (and I) had had a couple of drinks when we headed up to bed.
GW: fancy a romp?
hub: wouldn't say no.
GW/hub: romp romp romp shag shag shag
GW: five minutes, that must be a record.
hub: (bit of heavy breathing - as in the after lots of exercise kind not down a phone kind) Most activity.
GW: Most activity what?
hub: Most activity in my capacity (this was obviously said in ENGLISH - I would hope I would get a better translation if he had said it in Japanese)
GW: Most activity in my capacity. giggle giggle snort snort. That's fantastic darling.
GW: The best you could?
GW: You did as much as you could?
GW: OK then. well anyway darling. Jolly good effort.
hub: won't be able to do that in ten years.
GW: nevermind, that's why they invented viagra.
hub: hmmmmmmm, do you reckon the drug store in the next town over sells it?
GW: No, I reckon the online pharmacy does.
I was so scared of not remembering that outstanding phrase that I actually emailed it to myself from the toilet at 11:30pm. What a rockstar.
Anyway, the kids had the kinder summer festival last night. Granny K stepped up to the plate and agreed to watch Ryu for us - and even attempt to put him to bed. A first. And she achieved it. Fantastic news.
The summer festival was from 6 to 8pm. It stopped raining at about half five. The festival started with a lot of Japanese faffing around followed by a quiz which took kids and their parents on a 500m walk around the outskirts of the kindy answering a series of questions at teacher checkpoints. The Shou and daddy team managed them all but the mummy and Marina team got to each checkpoint, waited in line, had a meltdown, looked for crabs, jumped around, screamed a bit and got fireman lifted (over the shoulder) back to the start line with NO stamps.
Following the quiz there were five games - ring toss, goldfish scooping, balloon scooping, bowling and pulling a number for a prize out of a box - what's kujibiki in English?
Daddy showed Shou how to scoop the balloon...
It was a good time for the kids although Marina really can't last out and about until 8pm. Little Miss Grouch.
Hub went off to his wedding today, but not before giving the genkan a complete scrubbing over and insisting I wash the curtains. Ryu and I then went off on a shopping mission for new BBQ grill things (ami) for Monday night. Was meant to hunt out a water blaster too but no luck there so got a bottle of save instead.
Picked Shou and Marina up, did the dinner bath and bed thing. Hub came in - not too pissed. In fact hardly pissed at all which was a bit of a waste considering he gave them 30,000. This wedding had a 'flat fee' (kaihi) of 20,000 that everybody attending HAD to pay to cover all the dinner and shit. They don't expect more and therefore guests don't get loaded with gifts to take home like traditionally used to happen. Hub, being a relative and all, put in an extra 10,000 yen into the pretty pink envelope I got for him - that said Happy Wedding in katakana. Happii Ueddinngu !
I was kind of hopping he would come home looking like he'd eaten and drunk 20,000 yen worth. Instead he came home looking like he'd been drinking slowly but non stop since 11am when he got on the bus and they handed out beer and onigiri. Hmmmmm, perhaps he did have 20,000 yen worth.
Anyhoo, the house is quiet and I need to watch new episode of Cold Case or CSI or whatever is on at 10pm.
