Nicer Numbers


We have today a full moon or 十五夜, the one at 15th night on lunar November 15th, while 七五三=7-, 5- and 3-year-old celebration. Mei-Shun takes such a coincidence somehow mysterious — only odd numbers gather on a solar date of an even number. By the way, Shin kindly handed her a box of くろ玉=sweet black balls yesterday. And oh, where have 2 of them already gone?
