Irreconcilable differences

Marrying someone from another country can be fraught with cultural friction and at no time is this more apparent than when it come to child rearing.

Today I did something with the kids that so profoundly disturbed Kyoko, she scowled at me in a state of utter apoplexy for a very long time. It was something so odd, so strange, she couldn't fathom what was going through my insane mind.

Ready for this? Do you want to know what my terrible sin was? I was feeding them peanut butter that I had spread on a small piece of chocolate!! Holy Toledo! I may as well have been socking them with electrodes attached to their ears. What a terrible father I am!

Then I realized... Japan still does not have one important element of human civilization.

Yum! I hope they were successfully indoctrinated into our evil American ways.
