The Ha Department

Tonight at the Whole Foods sushi counter, I collected my sushi as a bearded man approached.

“Excuse me,” said the bearded man to the Asian man behind the counter. “Do. You. Have. Temp. Ura?”

“I can make some,” said the Asian man. “Can you wait a few minutes?”

“Si,” said the bearded man.

That made me laugh. Because he said “si” as if that were “yes” in Japanese. Isn’t that funny?

Sincerely,

The Ha Department
