Happy Father’s Day, everyone! My husband is a truly wonderful dad. He is the yin to my yang. He works hard, but is also loving and really sweet.
I was flummoxed as to what to get him. He is really hard to shop for. Finally, I settled on some sort of alchol.
This is at our 7-11. Our local 7-11 is getting renovated so last week they had an “Everything must go!” sale. 50% off! Wowza! The picture shows little sake juice boxes, with straws and everything. Aren’t they darling? However, I ended up getting the most expensive bottle of wine (50% off!) for my husband as an early Dad’s Day gift.
Now let’s move our local department store.
This is wine at our local department store. I got it for Jiji. The wine is from Fukushima, an area to the west. I like getting the wine at the department store, because they will mail the wine to Jiji, who lives in another prefecture. I have to pay shipping costs, and I have to pay for the box, but I find this so convenient.
Also from Fukushima, I got this sake for my husband. Like his father, he likes a nice glass of wine or sake in the evening occasionally.
One question is frequently get from Japanese people is “Does your husband drink?” Well, yeah. He’s a grown man! I’m always kind of suspicious of this odd question. Like the person will then tell the next person, “That gaijin’s husband is a total alcoholic!” I would never dream of asking this odd question to people.
