Stand by your man
"Many women want to learn how to remove earwax to please men. Akiko Inaba is even thinking of starting classes to teach women ear cleaning and massage as part of their bridal training."
I'm kind of speechless.
The tea ceremony lessons. The kimono wearing lessons. The flower arranging lessons. All of this I accept and can pretend to understand. But this... Just NO. Will toe picking lessons be next?
Actually, the whole 'bridal training' thing is, er, interesting.
I think my point, might be, that sometimes for brief periods I start imagining things in Japan and the UK to be similar. And then, WHACK, something comes thundering out to remind me of just how I'm deluding myself.
