Daughter of the mask...
Yes, go on... I invite you to get your laughs in on this one. I know I would if it were you. :) It's true, today I took another step in becoming Japanese and wore a surgical mask. No, I'm not sick, and it's not germs I am afraid of catching. My hayfever has been acting up and so I am trying limit my pollen intake by wearing this while I'm outside. Plus, I really couldn't go through a whole winter in Japan without experiencing "the mask." And while I was wearing out in the cold wind today, I realized another reason why Japanese people must wear these all the time-- it keeps your face toasty warm!
So there you go... the ongoing saga of the Japanification of Ann.
