I open it up. My heart wants to jump out of my chest. It is a pack of… 24… brightly coloured… felt tip pencils…in a beautiful box… They are absolutely out of this world. I never knew there could be a few shades of green!!! 😵 I always thought there is only one green color!
The Boss says it is a gift from... Japan.
I immediately realize that thousands of kids in my town would die from envy if they see me in that very moment. And I am smitten. I have never seen anything so spectacular in my entire life! There are millions of mundane pencils of the same brand, from the same factory in Soviet Union. And none of them come with felt tips.
Does it feel like winning the lottery without even buying a ticket? Yes it does! 😉
My black and white memory fades here... all I remember is the sight of that brightly coloured miracle in my hands… and it is “from Japan”!... 😍
Stay tuned! In my next posts I will share other interesting “Japanese” moments of my life with you. And of course, my big trip to the country of the Rising Sun.
