Kathy and her friend opened ‘La Maison de Chocolat’ in a pretty trendy neighborhood. They became popular quickly. Their customers were typically women in their 30’s and 40’s who were looking to buy something special for their parties.
Trendy (adjective); very fashionable or up to date.
- Crocs were very trendy sandals a few years ago.

Customer (noun) a person who buys goods or services from a shop or business.

P.S. A customer is defined as ’someone who buys goods or services from a store or business.’ A client is also a type of customer. In business, the two terms are often used differently based on the types of relationships built. Customers are generally people who come to you mainly to buy products or services you supply. Clients buy your advice and solutions personalized to their particular needs.
Yesterday Dave and I headed to Yasukuni Shrine to see the cherry blossoms.
Across the street from Yasukuni Shrine, I’d always seen lines of people waiting to see the cherry blossoms at Chidorigafuchi, but I’d never actually walked through the area myself.
Well yesterday, after fourteen and a half years in Japan, I finally did it.
Here is a selfie!
I wanted to share a quick photo of my trip to Hawaii back in February.
Here is a photo of Don, Ryan, Dave, and I. It was really great getting to see Ryan after over a year.
Can anyone spot what’s funny about this photo?
Well, three out of the four people in it are wearing Hawaiin shirts! I guess I didn’t get the memo! Ha ha!
(“I didn’t get the memo” is slang for “No one told me.”)
