Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

And there was DRAMA this morning!!!

Well, funnily enough, not as much as you’d think.

So… David forgot we have a houseguest.  He walked in on Ai in the shower.  It was completely unintentional, he just… forgot.  He can be a bit spacey.

But Ai’s Japanese.  They think about these things differently.  To hear her tell it, he walked in, stopped, and just stood there frozen, his eyes bugged out.  She was giggling when she told me this!  She just said “Ummm…  David?  Can you close the door please?” (did I tell you we have a clear shower curtain in that bathroom?  haha!!)

He snapped out of it, eeped out a “sorry”, and ran out, slamming the door after himself.  He came down, his face beet red.  She came down a few minutes later, seeming completely unconcerned.  He eeped and ran out of the room.

I asked her what happened, and she told me matter-of-factly.  Japanese think of these things differently.  She’d have preferred he didn’t, of course – but to her, it’s just a body.  She said that she used to take baths with her parents as a girl, and sometimes does even now, it’s not a big deal.  But David…  haha.  Poor kid.  I told Sabby what happened, and she sighed.

“I’ll take care of it,” she said, and went upstairs.

That may be the first time David saw… certain parts.  He never walked in on me, but he’s been a bit more spacey than usual lately.  Maybe it’s the hormones.  And I lock the door, haha.  The good news – for him – is that while Ai is pretty, she’s not as… gifted… as I am.  So at least his nose didn’t bleed.  Hahahaha!!!!!!!

Well, that drama aside, it was a pretty good day.  We took Ai down to see the San Antonio riverwalk.  She thought it was really pretty.  That Texas Bushman guy was there and scared her.  Haha!  I saw him – he’d gotten me earlier – so I just watched as she squealed.  Hahah!  She got a selfie with him, though, of course.  She was having a good time walking through and seeing the sights and doing some light shopping.  We got some lunch and some ice cream, and, yeah, that girl can really put it away.  Haha!!!

She was kind of amazed at how aggressive the drivers were on I-35 though.  Yeah, they’re a bit awful.  Tokyo drivers are pretty polite – usually.  On the way back we took her to the Buc-ees at New Braunfels – the largest convenience store in the world.  She was…  confused.  I mean, she thought it was impressive and all, but she asked “why would you even want this?”  I… had no good answer.  I told her “Americans just do things because we can sometimes.”  She just nodded and got something with a cartoon beaver on it.

So anyway, we got home, and she wanted to rest for a while.  I don’t blame her.  It’s been an eventful few days.  So while she was napping, I did some stuff on the computer and chatted with Jack for a while.  We need to go on a date soon!!!

For dinner, we took Ai to that track sushi place!  She actually teared up a little.  Said it reminded her of home.  Awww.  Then we took her to the Japanese bookstore next door, and had her chat in Japanese with the cashiers.  That was hilarious – she was far better than them.  Hahah!!!

Okay!  Got lots to do tomorrow, so sleep time!!!

Love you all!!! ❤
