I have a ton of TJP work to do with the new server (we are right in the middle of moving theJapanesePage.com to the new server and CMS), but I had to post this.
This morning, I took my parents-in-law to the airport. This morning means 2 AM. We got there around 3:45AM and waited for the Airline’s booth to open for boarding passes.
I suggested using the provided tags for writing addresses on each checked baggage. Thinking that was a good idea, my mother-in-law began writing her address in Japanese. I said, “You may want to write JAPAN in romaji just in case.” So at the bottom of the address she wrote in capital letters:
J A P A ン
(the last ‘letter’ was a katakana ン)
At 3:50 this morning, this was simply hilarious.
