featherhand Good Morning! Ohayo Gozaimas! what a great weekend! now its time to go back to work! 2mon
  •   featherhand @hikyoh o ha yo u !! is that the shortened form? or just the way to spell it!? sumimasen! o oshiete kudasai 2mon
  •   hikyoh Yes! You're right! If you have an iPhone, you can add a Japanese keyboard! 2mon
  •   hikyoh Also, I guess that's a way to spell it in romaji. If you were to type that out- it would come out as おはよう。 2mon
  •   featherhand @hikyoh domo arigato gozaimas! i added the japanese keyboard! i need to put in more time to understand it! mattaku wakarimasen! 2mon
  •   featherhand @hikyoh ps: could you also say ohayo-u in place of ohayo gozaimasu? if so, would it still be polite? 2mon
  •   hikyoh It actually looks like you do know what you're typing!! Gozaimasu** 2mon
  •   hikyoh Oops, so yes, you CAN say ohayou and not add the gozaimasu. It's kind of a more laid back way of saying it, kind of like saying "morning!" Instead of "good morning!" 2mon
  •   featherhand @hikyoh i see! go shinsetsu ni arigato! 2mon

featherhand Babydoll's first time in Denton. We walked arm in arm through the town square to meet our wedding photographer. The buskers played Operation Ivy for us and the sunset was Texas purple. She bought me a book of Japanese paintings. I took her out for pizza and wine. We drove home through the darkness, happy. 2mon
