Don Quixote

If you buy a per-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-rsonal item at Don Quixote, it is lovingly wrapped in very discreet cloud-patterned paper. Then it goes into an opaque black bag. Duh. I guess ran into some apathetic cashiers in Shibuya on this particular day. Thanks, Donki. Let's have no shame. Surely my reputation was only mildly affected among salarymen-in-the-know as I wandered home.

Haha. I totally know what you're talking about... major fail on the sheer bag.

When I buy tampons at the drugstore, they make sure to hide them in a black bag. It shames me!!!

I'm glad you got it! You've been talking about it long enough, geez.

Vivian -- HAHA totally! What's shameful about tampons? It's not like they're sold in an adults-only section in the store, or behind the counter in a pharmacy. I guess some people are embarrassed to admit that they menstruate.

Selena -- Right? I only wanted it so bad because I was so loath to leave my house, so that was a tough one to figure out.

Hi, I read your blog and enjoy your writing style (you're blunt and sound fun). I heard about the earthquake and I hope you're okay!
