This morning I went into Maruwa supermarket to get my fix of Pudding Baby, Choco Baby, Hello Kitty edible figurines and other silly Japanese chocolates. Who did I run into but Mr. "Can you believe I'm 61?" himself. He was buying the paper and some snacks. He remembered my name, which surprised me. When we said goodbye, he said "All right," in that sing-songy voice that still freaks me out.
