Akemi walked back into the apartment and announced: “I threw the garbage down the garbage shooter.”
“Garbage chute,”I corrected her.
“Garbage shooter,”she corrected herself.
“No,”I said. “Garbage shoot. Not shooter.”
“Ah,”she said, realization dawning. “Garbage shoot because it shoots the garbage downstairs. I’M the garbage shooter.”
“No,”I said, my frustration mounting. “It’s garbage chute. C-H-U-T-E. Not garbage shoot. S-H-O-O-T.”
She paused to consider. Then: “How do you say when a soccer player kicks the ball at the net?”
“He shoots – ”
“So like I shoot the garbage downstairs – ”
“No, but – ”
“C-H-U-T…” But she was no longer listening, focused as she was on miming the various shots she was taking on some imaginary net.
Anyways, Akemi wanted me to display for you this (presently) one-of-a-kind Suji t-shirt she had custom-made as a test sample.
If anyone would like this unisex medium black tee with a 17 inch width, 26.25 inch length, and 12 inch sleeve center back in 100% cotton, just leave a note in the comment section and I’ll have Suji randomly pick someone by tomorrow’s blog entry.
