Comments: Ants Rule at Start of New Year

I had the surprise of my life when, recently, my wife Tomoko and I went back to Japan. One of her goals was to gather and combine her assorted insurances, postal savings, various Sony plans and pensions.

After spending the better part of two days traveling between Tokyo, Sagamihara and Yokohama (I was assigned to carrying bags of cash!), we finally gathered at the local Kichijoji CitiBank.

I placed the bags of cash onto the counter and went to sit and talk with Mom who came with us(for Hanko reasons).

Tomoko suddenly looked in my direction, smiled and rolled her eyes (I had taught her the roll but she was not yet very good).

When she was finished, she came up to me and whipered in my ear the amount of money she had just deposited. It made my day! I bought dinner that night. Japanese women know how to save.
