Sushi-Cho, the Lucky Cats and Us
One night after doing the aforephotographed damage at Sushi-Cho, (our friendly neighborhood sushi restaurant), my husband--who had the good graces to get "a little snookered" with me and my friends--decided he wanted to buy one of their Maneki Neko, a.k.a. lucky cats. You know, like the aforephotographed one?
They wouldn't sell it to him; the cats are not for sale. But my husband won't take no for an answer. He wants me to convince them, tell them I write a local blog, etc.
I probably don't know enough about the cultural background involved, but I can imagine it would be bad luck to give-in to a white--albeit sincere--guy experimenting with monopoly rent.
