Tanner! So I checked my Japanese copy of Norwegian Wood and where the English one says "chicken teriyaki" the Japanese one says "mushroom soup"!
So the plot has thickened!!! They say that still waters run deep, and while that may be so, they run nowhere near as deep as the Great Chicken Teriyaki Conspiracy of 2010 orchestrated by Vicki and her Grandma. I knew her Grandma was too good to be true. Mark my words, behind every sweet Japanese Grandma lies a sinister plot involving Chicken Teriyaki and Mushroom Soup!!!
As I sink my teeth deeper into this most chewy of conspiracies, I’m quickly becoming convinced that Vicki’s Grandma put her evil plan into motion via a top secret call to Hans Gruber from this sinister phone booth in Kochi.
