Sleeping with whisky

by Keisuke Takada
(Katsushika, Tokyo)

When it comes to Scotland, though it may be a stale story, it reminds me of whisky: St. Andrews and Adam Smith. This may be the same answer by a foreigner when saying Samurai or Sushi when talking about Japan. Scotland is not a big country, but it is certainly a large legacy for mankind. If Scotland did not exist in history, the department of economics may have not existed in my university, too.

The first time I drank whisky (I can't tell you exactly how old was I because teenagers drinking is banned in Japan) was some years ago. I played a game with my friends. We hid behind a curtain vodka, whisky, coke, and green tea, and one of us shuffled these bottles. And then the others took turns choosing a bottle by saying left or right.

We had to drink the cup we chose. This is repeated many times, and everyone fell asleep quickly. The whisky was Bowmore. At the next time I drink it, I want to savor it.

If I go to Scotland and Loch Ness, I want to ask Nessie if he or she would like to come to Ueno Zoo in Tokyo and say "How much salary do you want?"
