Ine Ika



One of the students had caught fresh squid (ika) in the morning, so he offered a bunch of them to the teachers during lunch. Yoshida-san, the wife of the cutest Japanese couple ever- is sthe home economics teacher at Ine Bunko, so she and another teacher were cutting and cleaning them out. I've never seen sashimi prepared outside of a sushi restaurant. It was wild to see this happening at school- in a home-ec classroom! The ink was spilling out all over in the sink while they were pulling at the various pieces of the squid. At one point, Yoshida-san told me to touch one of the slimy tentacles, and it's suckers totally sucked onto my finger. I screamed like a girl and everyone laughed (inside they were all shaking their heads and thinking- "City girl...")
