Rainy season blues
"Wow, the sun is out! Why?"
"Do you have a rainy season in your country?"
Hand in glove (the sun shines out of our parks)
"Why are so many people wearing white gloves (while jogging)? It's almost summer."
Sure as the wind blows
"Mom, the wind's cold. Why do we need wind?"
'Pretty rainy' vs. 'partly cloudy'
"I think I need glasses."
Stinky or squishy?
"Stinky! Cigarettes are stinky! Hey, what do you like better: cigarettes or these squishy toys?"
Losing one's lunch
"Do you remember what your mother used to put in your bento for lunch at elementary school?"
When your friend always has to have the final say
"I saw a bee!"
The dreaded single escalator
"American man: You've gotta love those elderly folk who push past you in a hurry while getting off the train so that they're first to the single escalator that's operating only to stand still once they're there, blocking everyone else behind them."
Following the herd
"Why are stations like Futako-Tamagawa so busy on weekends?"
Refusing to give up on a stereotype
"Are you a university student?"
School rules: Dress for success
"I saw a lot of men wearing black suits and ties in the neighborhood this morning and thought for a second someone really prominent must have passed away."
