Only once every 4 years we can post on February 29. And it is today that Mei-Shun first found 子, 辰 and 申 symbols represent leap years. It seems somehow lucky to have one more day in these particular years.
It seems most women like to see mirrors, yet not for Mei-Shun right now. Shin noticed yesterday morning that she had reddish eyes, especially in the left. Her home ophthalmologist Dr. S diagnosed it as subconjunctival hemorrhage, which would take approx. 2 weeks to heal. Such a horrible look prevents her from going out. Just stay at home, play with Ms. Piano, it might say.
Mei-Shun had her stomach examined via gastroscopy, conducted by Dr. Y in Tokyo. She experienced nasal one two years ago, felt much easier than oral one, so chose the former this time as well. And she had no problem — better than before. With a sigh of relief, she dropped in on 新井薬師 before seeing her mother living nearby.
Please take the most profound gratefulness of Mei-Shun, Professor S. This bottle accommodates a perfume from the Sultanate of Oman, called “tarha” meaning a bride’s veil in Arabic. Three respectful professors of the University of Tsukuba kindly held a birthday party for Mei-Shun last Saturday; January 13th on the lunar calendar. The same restaurant they met last year served two glasses of beer instead of wine.
Today means Cat’s Day, yet let Mei-Shun talk about a horse girl. Actually, she made a break falling from Dreamer’s back last Wednesday. Fortunately, excellent work of an airbag vest prevented any trouble. She only felt a slight stiffness at the back of her neck for a few hours after that accident. Sorry, honey, it must have frightened you so much.
The answer was “Yes”. Thank you so much, Dr. A. She gave Mei-Shun a phone call around 14 : 00, maybe immediately after she met all outpatients. Such attitude is to be really admired — patients always feel like walking on a narrow bridge. Actually, that is not only for patients: normal, healthy people are on the same place as well. The latter just do not recognize it.
Mei-Shun visited a beauty salon in Shinagawa. She enjoyed many plum trees in blossom along Joban Line. And on the way to the saloon, bright pink color jumped into her eyes — it is 河津桜=kawazu-sakura, a cherry breed which blooms in early spring. After the haircut, she met with Shin at a hotel which accommodates one of their favorite Japanese cuisine restaurant.
Oh, Mikan-chan, you still have the stone. She seemed to use her restroom in the morning, yet mom saw nothing left. When she tried for the second time, mom rushed to there to take a sample and — found a reddish drop. Our home veterinarian Dr. O always recommends an operation. We have no choice?
春眠暁を覚えず, they say. Mei-Shun wonders if people from any country share such sleepiness in a warm, sunny weather. At least it does not seem matter which species you belong to.
