Tag Archives: invalid foreigners


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.
