Ore Wa Gundam!

One morning two months ago, my sister asked me if I knew about the life-size Gundam statue's retirement, which was due yesterday (March 5, 2017). No, I didn't, and the news hit me like a ghost had just walked through me. I managed to put together a four-day (obviously impulsive) trip to Tokyo.

Suddenly, the woman beside me pulls an avocado from her purse. I can think of many dirty jokes to entertain myself if it was a banana...but not an avocado. I can't take my eyes off her, watching as she cuts open the fruit with a plastic knife and begins to eat the succulent flesh.
