Recently, at my gym, there was a contest. Each time you went, you received a stamp on a card. After three stamps, you redeemed the card for a can of sport drink.
The first time I turned my filled card in, I received my sports drink and a note. It said:
There is a present when three points are collected.
Moreover, the BIG present is a hit in Secandchans.
What they (probably) meant was:
Here is your present!
We are also entering your name into a second chance drawing!
So, I am deciding to give you all a secandchans...
My last game, name those cities, was mildly popular. Mildly.
For those of you who made an attempt (that'd be Aunt Jenni and Anonymous), you were both right or close on 6 of the 7, with Aunt Jenni edging out the (anonymous) competitor 6 correct guesses to 5:
Rosanzerusu (Los Angeles)
Nyu yoku (New York)
Neither of you got Burajiru, or Brazil. (duh...)
Now, as I sift again through my Japanese lessons, I am finding more everyday, familiar words that seem plainly out-of-the ordinary when translated into Japanese. So, if you think you're keen and sharp, give the secandchans a go:
2. robii (informal place)
(and depending on the replies, there might be a thurdchans?)
