An irreverent look at life in Japan and the differences between the perception and the everyday reality of life as experienced by an American who has lived there for 20 years. What Japan is really like, how the Japanese really act, as well as a slightly outside perspective of events in the USA.

Nationalized Insurance Anecdotes, pt 2
I got a panicked phone call from my youngest son during class last night: "Dad, come home soon!" I headed home between classes, and found him broken out into hives, nipple to shoulder blade and shoulder to mid-chest and elbow. Some of those puppies were the size of my thumb; he looked quite uncomfortable.
Since I had another class, my daughters helped out and took him to the skin doctor down the street, then to the pharmacy and home.
Doctor's consult, steroid cream and oral allergy medicine. Total cost? $28
And no deductible.
