It's not that I don't want a sample from the candy shop. It's just that I don't fancy the flavors on sale and the tasty looking ones are all sold out. So what's a girl to do? Wait for someone to come back for a refund, that's what.
"Nah Dee, you're just being picky."
Take a look for yourself then. Here's a menu sample:
- Salary man flavor- this is the name given to the stereotypical Japanese office worker. They seem to be stuck in a time dimension of the 1980's (pre-bubble) - big eyeglasses, high waisted and round hair. But, outside of their appearance, they drink too much, stay out too late, and without a chivalrous bone in their bodies.
- Pretty boy flavor - you haven't seen a pretty boy until you've seen a Japanese pretty boy. Sure, they are a delight to look at but I'm instantly turned off by the waxed eyebrows, flipped hairdo and handbag... ahhem I mean manbag. They walk a fine line between metrosexual and homosexual and I don't like it.
- Shibuya boy flavor - Shibuya is the name of a shopping area here but there's no other way to classify them. They march to the beat of a different drum. With wildly teased hair, extremely brown tans (some accomplished using makeup foundation ), and kind of grunge fashion style, they are just a little too hip for my ship.
So you see, I clearly don't have many options. I opened up the M&M bag of Japan and someone picked out all the yummy red ones! Bum!
