Chapter V Funny Tale (13)
In my living room, the officer cap which I wore sometimes in my side job as a security guard is hung on the wall just above my desk casually. One of my girl friends who visited me saw it and asked me if I had been a sailor. It was quite impossible for me to say that I was a security guard, and denying I asked what she had thought of me in the other way around. She said,
"Yes, you are correct. Even if I appear like this, I was a colonel wearing white gloves, a dress in a stand-up collar and saber on my waist when I retired from the active duty"
The girls' eyes turned to sound tearful in fascination and
Watched me very impressively and with deep rapture.
