I'm attending a friend's wedding this month, but I'm not worried about it.

The next person can't whistle.

Yes, I can whistle.
But I can't whistle with fingers...well, I mean, to produce sharp whistle-like sound using two fingers on the lip...



The next person knows what I want to say and kindly tells me what do you call it in English.

I understand what you mean. I'd probably just say "whistle with your/two fingers" or maybe "whistle through your/two fingers". I can't do it either, but I can do a mean 歯笛.

The next person can hear the typhoon blowing outside their windows.

Not trouble exactly, but my darn connection is so slow. I'm really going to have to upgrade to 光ファイバー one of these days.

The next person likes their hotdogs with mustard and relish.

I do like to read, but I have little opportunity to do so because I'm busy being a full-time mother.


The next person used to enjoy playing with Thomas the Tank Engine toys as a child.

Nope, I'm not sure Thomas was around when I was a kid. I did like model trains though, and I once went to a model train show with my Dad.

The next person went to the onsen this past weekend.

Not an onsen but thermal pools in New Zealand.

I'd never heard of Thomas The Tank Engine when I was a child even though the books were probably around. I don't believe the toys became available until the TV series took off.

The next person lives in the same city as me.
