Lately, I’ve had a very bad cold, so my nasal passages are all clogged.
My mother says to me, upon reading it in the paper: “On this date in 1868, the city of Eedo was renamed Tokyo.”
“Edo,” I corrected her.
“Oh, I didn’t realize you already knew that,” said my mother.
“No, Edo! Edohhhhh!”
“All right, all right, I get it, you know.”
