狸さん, SS-san, Txkun-san
As I mentioned on the missing post(line 9-10), I asked you to translation into your mother tongues. I picked up the tale from something like a joke site where shows some funny tales from the other sites. I thought that short story/tale was renounced copyright, because that site says they took the tale from such a "anonymous people"'s site.
I thought even renounced copyright tale, I enjoyed it enough, and I used it on this site, so I wanted to take your translations back as a return to the site where introduced the tale.
However... I lost URL of the site＾＾; hehe.
I tried to search again the site when Txkun had finished to post. then I noticed MANY sites shows this tale, some details are bit different, just as Rich-san mentioned it. I chose one site, ( I know that site is not site as I had read first, but who care?
) then contacted with site owner.( site looks nice.)
I received reply from site owner that says he/she wants to public your translations on the site, if possoble.
Now I'd like to ask you if you don't mind your translation is on the Japanese site.
Please let me know.
Since I've read his/her site, I think site owner can speaks English at least better than me. Also the owner has much interests about your translations.) He/she didn't know this tale is on Allan and Barbra Pease's Book either.
The Book "Why Men Lie And Women Cry "ISBN: 0752847279/Paperback
that 狸さん introduced us seems to be published on 2002-08-31 by Orion Pub co.( Not sure there was Hardcover)
The first edition of Japanese translated was published on 2003-01-31 as 『嘘つき男と泣き虫女』 by 主婦の友社:ISBN4072319236
I think this tale started to come up from 2003-3-14 on the Japanese web sites.(after that it became to have some variations, however basicaly same though.) I believed it was Japanese story, but now I'm not sure.
Anyway I really enjoy around "trial".
Thanks 狸san, your information brings a chance to know another nice site owner.
Thanks in advance.
