  • 母が5ヶ月半入院し、空けていた母の家に私が到着した時、郵便受けは溢れ落ちる封筒たちを辛うじて閉じた扉で抱えていた。 チラシをまず捨てても、大きな紙袋に一杯の封筒たちと数枚のハガキを翌日母と整理した。封筒の中には一通、弁護士協会より延滞金の請求に付いて法的処置云々したものもあった。母によると、NTTの勧誘の方に、「背中や膝をさすられて気持ち悪悪いから」使いもしないインターネットの契約をしたという。 母は [続きを読む]

  • ちょっと濃いなった大阪の食事
  • Had omlet doria for breakfast at 2nd morning in Osaka. Doria is something you don't see often, except at Japanese own restaur

  • Smoking cigarettes yet? たばこの日
  • I did smoke cigarettes about 10 years.I quit many times and went back smoking till I finally began hating smell of cigarette. My
    ex husband, who then was boyfriend at a college, told me it was gross to kiss me after my smoking, yet he couldn't tell me be

  • 食欲回復 Lucky in Chiang Mai
  • プーケットの熱風が私の食欲を蒸発させてしまい、一日に一食だけ無理やり食べる日があったりで減量し熱中症の心配をしていた。 プーケット最後の夜には、フェースブックにプーケットでの写真を挙げてしまおうと頑張っている間にメッセッージ攻勢に突入し、寝る間も無くチェックアウトして旅立つ時間が来て、あたふたとデポジットを返金してもらって出発した。 早めに着いた空港で持ち込んだパンやら果物を朝食に。前日、リゾートに [続きを読む]
  • 壊れたサングラスと私
  • 夜半にスクーターライドから帰宅して、次の朝、サングラスのレンズが片方失われていることに気づいた。 確か暗くなり始めた頃に、スクーターを停めサングラスを外して首元に引っ掛け、そのまま暗くなった道を駆け抜けて帰宅したのだけど、どのようにレンズが外れてどこで落としたのかはわからない。襟元に掛けておいて、どうしてレンズが外れたりするんだろう。 サングラス兼用のメガネを他にも持ってきてるけど、顔面を大きくカ [続きを読む]

  • なんぞヌードル食べよう 大晦日

  • こないだの身体検査の日
  • 昨日の夕陽はあっという間に沈んだ。 コンビニの入り口にあるscale は米や豆の買い出し・計量にも使われている様子の体重計。使用料金はたったの 1バーツ。バッグを肩から外して、サンダルを脱いで、計量したよ。身長160cmの私なら、健康的な体重は50.4 から64.4kgとご親切に表示がある。47.8kgでは痩せすぎだって事。 私の全身の筋肉は、好きなロッククライミングとヨガを頻繁にしなくなったことで、急速に消滅しつつある。 私の [続きを読む]
