(5/24)I was absent.
I'm sorry I was suddenly absent this class last Wednesday.
That day, afternoon, my car,insight had a troubl. Its battery went flat. It was caused by forgeting to turn off the hazard lights. So I connected two batteries of insight and ekwagon, my wife's car, with booster cables, and tuened on the starter of insight. Then the engine started but at the same time, the hazardlights turned on and continued the alarm sound for the crimeprevention. I couldn't stop them.Unforyunately, Honda dealers were all closing down Wednesday. Iwas in a panic a little. Then, my wife's friend, just happen to be, adviced to call to FAF, Japanese Automobile Federation. Besides, the phone number of FAF, ♯8129, in my cell phone, didn't work.
What should I do ?
I was a panic again. Insted of me, that friend called Tiyahashi base of JAF. She knew that phone number, They said that just a moment. They told what time they could come there after. So I decided to be absent this class that day. Several minutes, after, the survice car of JAF arrived at my place. This time, when I started my car engine, I could turn off the hazard lights and no sound of alarm. How strange itis, I thought. JAF survice was free of charge, because I'm a member of it. I knew that first.But he said I had to continue idling for one or twohours to charge of battery.
In the middle of my car idling, Kaneko came my place and gave me her and your presents. Thank you for them and your apprehensions.
By the way, Yoshime, thankyou for your husband's Chinese tea. I'd like to say him that I've been pleased by his presents every time. I wanted to say that last week. This time, mine was KU-苦-something. KU means taste bitter. But it was not bitter. It tastes like buckwheat-tea, ソバ茶. It's very good and soft. We, my wife and I use to it every morning for breakfast. Sayto him " Thank you!"
