I remember going to pools such as these as a kid in Japan at the Korakuen amusement park, although I don’t remember it being this crowded. And I thought the rush hour commute was tough.
We’re getting a washlet for our new house, but now experts have verified a condition known as “washlet syndrome”, where one gets emotionally attached to the washlet and refuses to leave the toilet, or overuses the spray and develops a rash. It seems NY Yankees player Hideki Matsui takes a portable washlet with him on road games. When I move to the new house and I’m late for work, you know where I am.
