Satsumaimo Man

Today after work the Sweet Potato Man came by. I was talking with two little friends when I heard the song coming over the loudspeaker. I said, "Nani?" (What is it?) and they tried to explain, but they just get so excited and speak so quickly, I could only pick up bits and pieces. (It's a bummer when you know enough of a language to ask questions, but not enough to understand the answers.) The kids and I ran to the truck, and I asked how much three potatoes would be. (Again, I know how to say that, but I couldn't understand the answer.) I bought each of us a steamy potato and it turned out to be $10. Quite a bargain to see these little smiles.
