Wow, I've just feelslapped.
I usually have tea at 5 in a Japanese school, and today we were talking about exotic food. I remember they sometimes eat grasshopper pickles were my wife's parents came from, so I said something like:
"Did you know people in Nagano eat grasshopper pickles? It's so weird... I wonder what it tastes like"
Then a teacher calmly said "Oh, it's no biggie, it's a bit like crackers"
"Really? Where did you eat grasshoppers?" (I wondered if it was a Nagano thing)
"We all did after the war"
“All I have learned, I learned from basslines.”
