A lot of our Japanese friends from college got placed outside of Tokyo, so every couple months, they visit – thirsty for a little bit of urban life.
A lot of our American friends switch jobs, graduate from college, take a break from work, and somehow find a way to fulfil one of their lifelong goals – visiting Tokyo.
In any case, I with people coming in and out of the house, I’ve become a master at changing super-quickly. And if we’re not going on a date (and I don’t have work), there’s no reason to wear makeup.
A lot of my husband’s (Japanese) friends have expressed surprise by how quickly I get ready in the morning. Mostly because I just don’t care.
