My lunch break is between 2:30 and 4pm.

I always go home.

What do I do at home for 90 minutes?

I usually lie on my sofa and watch TV or take a nap.

Monday to Friday, on their way home from elementary school at 3pm, about 200 kids walk by my place.

I see them; they see me.

They must think I’m an invalid or shut in.
The foreigner who’s always lying on the sofa!

About a half dozen kids have started to wave to me as they pass.

And I wave back!

note: if you look closely, you can see “my experiment” on the left.

  1. I’d rather see the same picture with all those kids walking by. That’d be better!

  2. Or a close-up of that “experiment”….is that what I think it is? I’ve missed the “experiment” blog entry so I am clueless.

  3. This is something that you need to cultivate with the kids. Start leaving strange clues for the observant ones to find and figure out!

    Ohhhhh! Mysterious Gaijin!

  4. buskerman: I’ll see what I can do about the photo.

    w1kkp: “my experiment” is up in my frontpage header area.

    Turkish Prawn: maybe I’ll start leaving things in my outside bushes 🙂 Good idea!
