My obachan (aunt) came to town today and I took her to several places. She wanted to buy a spring jacket and a skirt so we visited several shops including EAON Kochi. It was only her second time there and she seemed pretty excited in the shopping mall. (She said she would buy me something there so I got a small manometer. What’s wrong with buying a manometer? That’s what I wanted the most so I bought it. ;P) But she was definitely more excited when she grabbed my arm and dragged me into a Pachinko parlor. Yes, she loves pachinko, but I don’t. I didn’t let her stay there for more than 30 minutes because I couldn't stand the smoke and noise any longer than that.

Other than that pachinko break, we had a good time. We had sushi lunch and Chinese dinner, and she bought a nice jacket. I really respect those people who can go clothes shopping with someone else and manage to buy what they really want. That's something I can’t do. I always end up buying something I don’t like or not buying anything at all, feeling guilty about making the person wait while I try the clothes on.
