HI TO YOU TOO, TOILET-SAN

NOT
                           NOT

I arrived alone at our Kyoto apartment.  It was quiet, dark and empty.  There was no, hi honey coming from another room.  No warm welcome home after my lengthy journey across the wide Pacific. No flowers, no champagne.

NOT
                                   NOT

That was until I passed the bathroom door.  All of a sudden, my return was acknowledged by a perky and cheerful beep beep beep.  That’s toilet language, for it’s nice to see you again.  In fact, Toilet-san was so happy to see me, it lit up and tipped its hat, well, I mean opened its lid in invitation to join it and have a seat.

HI!  WELCOME BACK!!
HI! WELCOME BACK!!

When I accepted its invitation, it played one of its favorite musical recordings, much to my delight.

For the first time, I understood the importance of a responsive and cheerful appliance, always there for me, just waiting for me to return to my Kyoto home.happiness t p

    Dianne, that was super interesting! I like to find out the workings of that gadget and maybe we can market it here, in the USA for lonely widows like me!
