Mmmmmm
Okay. :-)

What prompted this comment was that when I was there, I was watching some show with the family I was staying with, and the father pointed to the subtitles and said something about the dialect. It was a comedian, so nauturely I assumed he was from Oosaka (hehe)...well, that's not entirely true, the dad told me he was from Oosaka. He said something about needing to translate......From what I remember, there was a set of characters then a second set of characters in parenthases and that what he was talking about....mmmm. He was probably making a joke that I didn't pick up on.

Sorry for the disinformation. :-)
