197. John

John, an actor, was the victim of my ignorance about natto when his character was force-fed soup. Soup I had bought at the conbini when I couldn’t read any Japanese. He really sputtered through that rehearsal. I’m still regretting that.


Was he allergic?

No, he wasn't allergic. Natto (fermented soybean) is one of those foods you either love or despise.
