And I can ask my question to you too: would you find it a terrible funny idea if your wife wears such a t-shirt when walking with you through the town, be it in Japan or in the US?

(I'm not talking about all the silly t-shirts we had when we were giggling 16. I thought this was about grown-ups here.)
In many ways we don't become grown-ups until we are in our 30's or 40's. When I was 21, I probably would have bought it for her. Now at at few weeks shy of 66, no, I wouldn't. But at 66 I wouldn't think to enlist in the Military during a time of war as I did when I was 20, thinking I could make a difference... We live...we learn... hopefully we grow.
