The Turd of the Day
This morning, I woke next to the always wonderful Ms. Sunshine and as we were having breakfast we were having the tv on to one of the many Japanese morning shows. As Ms. Sunshine was in the kitchen getting something a segment called "kyou no wanko" (today's dog) started and since I know that she's a big animal friend I gently called out in Japanese "kyou no wanko desu yo" ("today's dog is on now) to her to which I got back a surprised and pretty loud "what? What did you just say?". To which I replied in English "It's that puppy thing on?".
A relieved laugh from her "I thought you said "kyou no unko!"" Which would be translated to "today's turd". But hey, this is Japan so you can never be too sure, maybe it's the next big thing!
