じゃあ...s and Bottles

じゃあ...s and Bot...
An old house in my neighbourhood (近所) was demolished (潰れ) recently. My son and I looked around the site and we found some ceramic insulators (ガイシ) and some jars & bottles. The tall one on the left at the back is a milk bottle, the clear one on the right is Yakult, the clear, short one at the front on the left is for ink, and the small, dark blue one is for eye drops. I`m not sure about the others. Do you know?

Grammar:
- ON the left/right
- AT the front/back
- IN the middle/centre

You`re the One That He Wants
In class, we were studying the word 'one' as a pronoun (代名詞), so I brought three neckties, & had my student choose one for me to wear.

Me: Which one should I wear?
S: The red one.
Me: on...?
S: The red check (チェック) one on the left.
Me: Why not the others?
S: I like the green one with white dots too, but the red one is best.
Me: Okay, I`ll wear the red one.

And I did.

バナナの穴は...?
After 4 months, my banana plant is too big for my biggest pot, so I chose a well-drained place in my garden, dug a hole, & transferred it. Phew - it was draining work on a hot, humid day.

I hope it grows well.

Vocabulary:
drain = 流す, 干す, 抜く
draining = しんどい
brain drain = 頭脳流出

Medal-Worthy Mullets

Medal-Worthy Mullets
Have you seen these two Australian athletes? They both have a hairstyle called a 'mullet'. It`s embarrassing, but also funny. This hairstyle was kind of popular in the 80`s, but not now.

There is also a kind of fish called a mullet (ぼら) but that`s not the origin of the haircut`s name.

Grammar:
- a ___ called '____' = 「__」という__
e.g. - a shop called Muji = 「むじ」という店
- a beach called Suishohama = 「水晶浜」という浜

Black (Raspberry) Label Jam
This year I made colorful labels for my homemade black raspberry jam. I got my daughter to design & color the background, and I had my sons do the writing. I scanned the original label, then printed out multiple copies, in different sizes.

By the way, our school is having an Instagram English recipe contest. Teacher James will cook the winning recipe, so if you want to get him to cook your dish, please enter! I submitted my jam recipe. Details here:

Grammar:
- I got + 誰か + to + 動詞
- I had + 誰か + 動詞
= 私は誰かに動詞-てもらった / もらいました。
