The temperament of my mom and I are EXACTLY THE SAME.
For example, after washing our hands in the public bathroom, I never dry my hands. I never carry a cloth. I don’t want to waste paper, and I don’t want to bother to spend the time to use the drier, and plus it uses electricity. (time is the main reason). My mom offered to lend me her hand cloth. I said no. She asked why not. I said, “Because I don’t want to. My hands air dry quickly.”
But actually, there is really no good reason not to use her cloth. It’s fast, doesn’t waste anything, etc. But I Just didn’t want to. That stubbornness is the same as mom. lol Maybe she gets annoyed at something, and I offer to do something for her that will un-annoy her, but she says, “No, forget it.” But it’s SO EASY to just DO IT, but she won’t have any of it.
Today we went to Kappa Bashi first thing in the morning. We had lunch at a convenience store, and enjoyed looking at all the kitchen goods and fake food. 😀 After that, we went to Shinjuku and Mom bought me a new knee pad at Oshmans! It was expensive! Like 7,300 yen! For my birthday! Then we bought Mom a new camera! A nice, light-weight Nikon! 😀 Finally, we met a friend for dinner.
Came home, now bed time.
Maybe I’ll train tomorrow morning….
