July 7th is called "Tanabata" in Japanese. As legend goes, once a year, on this day, a female star Vega and a male star Altair have a date. They are so happy and they try to make everyone's dream come true.
People write their wish on a strip of paper and tied it to a bamboo tree. In my class today, I had my students write their wishes and put it on the bulletin board. I had to make several explanation.
- I wish for the success of my diet!
- I wish for a lot of ice cream!
Students said to me immediately, "You've just said you'd go on a diet!!" Yeah, I too easily forget that I should be on a diet! And I am eating a bunch of chocolate chip cookies. Those stars won't hear my wish.
What's your wish?
WISH TO WIN ANDERSON'S HEART
Oh, this is our ultimate goal. And possibility is close to zero. I often say that I would marry my beau unless I win Anderson's heart. And I know I will say that I won't devorce him unless I win Anderson's heart.
That wish is something that cannot be realized. So how about this?
I WISH FOR ANDERSON
I, we, rather, need to see you, Anderson. There are millions of people craving for you.
Didn't you say "No Anderson?"
