Hatervision: pasta sauce from scratch!

Say What!?

In Japan they tend to shorten names of places and things. One day I was finishing a meeting and one of ladies there asked "who's hungry? ". It was lunchtime so, I raised my hand. She looked at me with a straight face and said "Do you want to go 'fu-king' with me?". Shocked? Yes, I was. After I regained my composure, I said "I'm sorry, but I'm married". She turned beet red, started shaking her head and waving her hand then said "no, no, no 'fu-king' means First Kitchen, a fast food restaurant!" After we both recovered from the embarrassment, we went to lunch and had a long conversation about effectively mixing English and Japanese.
