Too Good

Standard

Meow, mom gives me a tiny bowl of milk these days. It is one of my favorite treats, purr. She dilutes a teaspoon of it with an equal amount of water, makes creamy dip. “Bon appétit,” she says and serve it to me who attends her every meal at home. By the way, it is you who have a big appetite today, isn’t it? Two mountains of rice in a normal 茶碗 seems to mean a large size.

Meow, Respect-for-the-Aged Day of 2022 is the same to my birthday. Does it mean me of 19 years old on 19th by chance? At least mom never takes it so. She calls me the sweetest honey ever in the last year of teens, purr. And dad, great to find you in 上海 from yesterday, cleared 10-day quarantine at 青島. We promise to keep “good girls” until welcome you back home.

Golden Gear

Standard

Here is Mei-Shun’s new vacuum cleaner. Named “Ms. Harp” from her color and shape, she would be the best partner for above owner to clean carpets and wooden floor. Oh, how light you are in main body while normal tube and head. Please say hello to Ms. Piano. You two are among Tora-chan’s four kittens who live with a couple in Tsukuba — oops, Piano was a boy.

Droll Dripping

Standard

We have 白露=hakuro, the 3rd of autumnal 二十四節気 today. 白 means white and 露 drop, while the latter fell down on mom-in-law’s table this morning upset her so much. When she made a phone call to Mei-Shun, it was 5 : 00 that her daughter-in-law jumped up from a futon mat wondering something occurred to Shin. None of his numbers shown! A sigh of relief.

Light Flight

Standard

Meow, do you kind 479 followers believe UFO? Mom seems to do and dad as well. She takes it pretty normal, since we are too tiny in the universe to reject such an idea. However, they have never seen any in the sky — is this therefore the first time for him? When she received above image from Thailand, I thought he finally made it. “Ah, it is just a room lamp”, was his answer.

Bite at Night

Standard

Do you kind followers like to have sweets a bit before going to bed? Shin and Mei-Shun do, or are forced to when a gift from a client of the husband is due within that day. And it seems practical for him to eradicate rice, the most loved food from every meal. On the other hand, the wife was satisfied with numbers on a scale. She therefore might deserve it even if failed in dance with horseies.

Pêche Party

Standard

Meow, dad and mom are still in obon summer vacation from 13th to 16th, yet spend it as a normal weekend followed by weekdays. He went out this morning for business, while she washes, cleans and studies as usual. Only an irregular event was on Saturday to visit their favorite pâtisserie with me by Ms. Scarlet. It is quite regular for the shop to be closed today.

Meet Meow

Standard

Shin used to go on business trips abroad at least once a month before that novel coronavirus began roaring among us. When Mei-Shun found on a souvenir brochure lip-balm sticks full of kitty patterns and asked him to purchase some, he immediately handed her a tiny box. However, the wife could not use them so far — not only on package design but by a stick itself appears a lovely face.

Edible Egg

Standard

This August starts from Monday. Yes, Mei-Shun is ready to spend well the hottest month of the year. And happy birthday, mom. She went to cool 草津 from the middle of last month, plans to stay there until September. It is her custom since beloved dad departed 13 years before, so their two daughters have to congratulate her indirectly via phone or e-mail.

家守

Standard

Lunar July starts from today. So Ms. Piano, could you join Mei-Shun to sing scores honoring that gentle lady who stays behind dark sky tonight? By the way, “gecko” sounds like her light in our language. He/She might therefore mean the same appearing on a kitchen window from a few days before. Thanks a million for your protection — we hope our brightness indoors helps to serve you enough dinner.
