There it is. Even Mr. Fukushima's employees know he's racist. At least someone is on J's side at the Japanese office.
I'm not exactly sure what Mr. Fukushima meant by that comment but I know it ain't good. Remember, J almost didn't make it to Japan because "somebody" decided it was better to have Ryan. I think that somebody is Mr. Fukushima. I'm not sure why he's so turned off by a black man in Japan but we'll probably find out in the future!
Wake up, Americans! You don't want your boss to catch you sleeping on the job! Anyone that's been through jet-lag can appreciate this! I'm usually pretty good at staying awake when I'm sleepy but jet-lag is a mix of physical exhaustion from travel and the effects of a time change. Together they force people to fall asleep at the worst moments!
I really did enjoy watching my Junior High School students cooking. Usaully, everything went fine and they did a good job. Usually. There was a time when one cooking team had a little bit too much flame action happening under their pan. It was very exciting! Also, pretty scary! Do you have any cooking class stories from your school?
J has been stuck with Ryan the whole trip so I'm sure it's nice for him to get a little space at the hotel! Sometimes things can go well. Enjoy the privacy, J! You've earned it.
