Don't Eat With Your Mouth Full

Where can we live but days?

I can't confirm this explanation for "medicine finger" is correct, but it's the only one I've ever seen.

ETA: At least the kitsune was "are" and not "sore"!

Thanks for that. It makes sense (in terms of language, not so much of hygiene).

It was "are" from where the speaker was sitting, but virtually "kore" for me!

Before reading that fascinating explanation for 'medicine finger', my first thought was to recall being taught many years ago, to focus my pre aikido stretches from 'ring finger' to the corresponding toe because that was the line of a key shiatsu meridian.
Relevant? Who knows...

Quite possibly! How interesting!

Please consider this conjunction of events a formal request for writing about kitsune?

I've a feeling the fox may demand a half share of the royalties. But let us see first whether the conjunction is yet concluded: perhaps my vulpine adventures are only just about to begin...

Your talk of learning Japanese is making me miss the time when I had the opportunity to take some classes at the Japan America Cultural Center in Chicago. Someday I'll get back to it.
