365 Prompt: November 20 2017



That’s all they ever said.

That’s all the little Japanese school kids ever yelled out to us as we rode past them on our bicycles.

It was weird because I didn’t yell out, “Konnichi wa!” every single time I saw them or other Japanese people.

That would have been weird.

But when I mentioned this to other Japanese people they didn’t seem to think it was strange.

“Do you talk to random Japanese people and yell out when you see them?” I asked.

“Of course not!” they replied.

I rest my case.
