Why I Can't Take My Mom to Some Places

A few years ago, my mom and I went to Hokkaido Island on a tour with my aunts and grandmother.

It was three generations of Chen women vacationing together for the first time and I loved it.

I also loved the lavender farms and hot springs that Hokkaido is known for.

Especially the hot springs.

Because it's every girl's dream to see her mom and aunts buck-naked.

Every single day.

It was a special feature I hadn't planned for.

My mom and her sisters were also in nirvana because of the fresh seafood they got to eat at almost every meal.

I was not quite so happy; seafood and I don't get along very well.

One day, we went to this attraction where there was a fish tank by the entrance.

The surroundings were pretty plain and non-descript.

My mom asked:

我們要吃飯了嗎?(Wǒmen yào chīfànle ma?) Are we going to eat now?

I think my mom had sushi dreams.

I replied, "We're not going to eat, but yeah we'll kinda see some sushi and sashimi around."

Because we were at the aquarium.
