Fried Chicken and Sushi 183 Turning Japanese

Happy New Year!  I hope you all are excited about the new year and all it will offer.  Today's comic really happens when you're in Japan and are accustomed to talking to people that do not speak English well.  You begin to speak slowly and very simply so that everyone can understand you.  I remember forgetting certain words because I didn't use them anymore.  Have any of you had this experience?  I'm looking forward to another year of comics and I hope you're are too!
