At the game

We went to a baseball game with a flock of friends and Zousama looked at me so sweetly as we left that I picked him up and brought him along.

But when we reached the entrance gate the guards were a bit bemused.

"Um, is there a Japanese speaker?" said the man doing the bag check as he scanned our group for Nihonjin. We assured him that we'd be OK if he spoke Japanese.

"So, well...." he started.

"Oh, it's like a pillow," MJ said enthusiastically patting Sama's back. But the guard looked dubious and glanced over at the more seriously dressed superior off to the side who nodded in a "go ahead, continue" fashion.

"Well, um...well...." he stammered. His cohort chimed in with "You see, the seats are narrow..."

At which point, Tod came forward with Zousama's ticket. We had an extra. He placed the ticket on Sama's back. "This is his ticket. Is that OK?"

The guards attending to us giggled. So did all their friends who'd come over from other gates to watch this spectacle. Elephant with a ticket? Well, let him in!

Sama had a great time at the game, as did the rest of us.

Get, Foot, Set!

Did he get a hot dog too? Do they serve hot dogs? Probably not. What's the ball game fare there?

That's a great story. I would have loved to hear the conversation!

I'm taking a screenwriting class right now (the main focus is writing 'shorts') and it just struck me as how cute a short this would make! Zousama's people should call my people. ^_^

Excellent story!

I almost suceeded with that pillow ruse....

Thanks for the fun day guys (^^)

I was there and while ZouSama didn't have a hotdog, I spotted him chugging on a beer on a few occassions.. It was a good thing the beer girls were not carding yesterday!!

Had a great time Kristen.. thanks to you and Tod.. Hi to everybody.

Im sorry i missed it! I hope you guys all go again sometime! And i was astounded to see Jessica in the photos, i have met that girl in so many different places with so many different people! Hopefully see you all there next time!

Personally, I think Zousama was just there for the peanuts and to watch the beer girls. And possibly to add to the cheers. Who was he trumpeting for?
