Oｈ ! My God Story
Everyone makes a mistake in life.
I had a friend Mr. M..
He has studied abroad in America for a year.
So he had a confidence in his English.
Something happened after he went back to Japan.
One day, he introduced a woman to all the staff in his company.
She was a friend of Mr. M
and was going to join the
company as a new employee.
Her name was Ms. K and she was born and lived in America.
"Everybody, now I would like to introduce my friend K."
"She was born in America and is a negative American."
He wanted to say a native American. (a laughter)
I made a similar mistake.
It was ten years ago.
I met a pop group at a party.
They hit #1 chart in billboard magazine and were very famous at the time.
I forgot the name of the group.
But I remember one thing.
There was a black woman in the group.
She was a wife of a famous guitarist Carlos .Aromar.
Carlos is a rare guitarist from Africa.
He played the guitar on Paul McCartney's album.
Anyway, I happened to read their palms.
The male lead vocal had a sign of a very bold man in his palms.
The first thing I said was,
"You are a very bold man."
Then he cried.
Oh, No! Bald
Bald and bold have a similar pronunciation.
In my case, my pronunciation sounded bald.
Around that time, he was grieving for losing hair everyday.
Oｈ ! My God.
