Little Brother's koinobori hasn't been out of its box in years. We don't have a proper pole anymore to hang it. Besides, Baba insists it is for very young boys. Little Brother is now 16!
I hung it anyway. Near the laundry. Talk about nontraditional!
It couldn't be seen from the road.
But someone noticed.
She waited for me to leave,
but, in the end, she didn't bother it. This dog always keeps her in line.
