Kicking the bucket isn’t much fun.
note: Death rides a pail horse! … that’s kind of silly.
double note: I guess I’m beyond the pail now!
triple note: “kicking the bucket” phrase origin is here. If you are short of time, it says: The wooden frame that was used to hang animals up by their feet for slaughter was called a bucket. Not unnaturally they were likely to struggle or to spasm after death and hence ‘kick the bucket’.
quadruple note: I’m off to the Matsumoto Craft Fair again! I’ll be back Sunday night … my time.

In Japan people usually sit on little plastic stools when they shower: they look like buckets with a hole in the seat.
During my first 2 years in Japan, I refused to sit down to shower: it felt unnatural.
Since then I have slowly adapted to the bucket and have assumed the position.
Actually,it’s quite nice sitting down to shower.
I still don’t know what the hole in the seat is for though.
