21st June, 2010 - Well we should all remember the things that matter in life - and sometimes those things are the ones we take most for granted. Food is one of the simple pleasures in life that we rarely ever run out of. Still, do we ever really enjoy it fully? With gusto?
You do if you're 3 years old.
Whilst L-kun scores highly for enthusiasm (when eating), he most probably loses most if not all points for a complete lack of sophistication.
And whilst it's good to have some protection from spillage when sitting around the table (even Daddy could make use of that sometimes), sometimes you need a some protection outside as well. L-kun loves his Pooh-san umbrella. There's always something new when he comes back to Sapporo to live with obaachan and ojiichan. It's like Christmas at any time of the year.
At this time of sadness (with the 11, March, 2011 earthquake still firmly in our memories), it's good to not dwell too long on the bad things... but to remember better times and look forward to those times returning.
