i read that post and it's not so bad after all. i did want to point out to my american readers, however, that when i asked yoshi to take hiro to the toilet to flush out his eyes, i didn't literally mean stick his head in a toilet. here in japan the toilet is often in a separate room from the bath. so, calling it a bathroom is a bit of a misnomer. i have become used to calling the bathroom, or restroom, a toilet. technically, there was a restroom at the temple, and i meant for yoshi to wash off hiro's face at a sink.
