Yesterday on the way home from the mall I had this conversation with Emi:
Emi: Mom, is there really such a thing as nagareboshi (shooting star)?
Emi: When do they come, like Easter or Christmas?
Me: I'm not really sure, I think it's more like during a season like Spring or whatever. (I know, that's a dumb description)
(2 minute silence)
Emi: Mom, you know what I would wish for if I saw nagareboshi?
Emi: A skateboard.
(five minute silence)
Emi: You know what if I would wish for if I saw another nagareboshi?
Emi: No school!
