Minding Your “P”s

Even after all these years on island, sometimes things happen that are just too funny. I recently went to get new reading glasses. During the eye exam, I was asked to read a chart. The selected item looked like something that might be written in Japanese, but wasn’t clear. So I explained that I didn’t read Kanji very well. The local eye examiner replied in Japanese language, “This isn’t Japanese it’s an alphabet letter.” We both giggled, then she adjusted the lens and asked again. It still wasn’t completely clear, but I could faintly make out a “P”. Giggling I told her it still looked more like a Katakana ? to me. We both laughed some more and continued the exam.
