Good morning. This is Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi.
Every Friday I respond to the messages received on this show.
First up is one from Arisa-san.
"Ohno-san, good morning. Yesterday I ate ramen at my family’s. 2860 yen. With your favour please!"
I’ll be awaiting your receipt! (laughs)
Next, from Anko-san.
"Good morning, Satoshi-kun. When I can’t sleep, listening to people’s voices gives me the peace of mind so that I can sleep. But as you’d expect, there aren’t any people talking in the middle of the night so I often listen to the secret talks included in Arashi CDS. I can fall asleep immediately with those, so I love them but I’ve listened to them so much that I’m getting tired of them. Ohno-kun, when you can’t sleep, do you get up and do something? If you have any good tips, please share them."
Of course you’d get tired of them! (laughs) If you listen to them endlessly, you’d end up memorising them.
I rarely have times where I can’t sleep. It only happens once or twice a year, really. At those times, um, I’d be in bed, right? I’d be facing up. And then, I’d imagine that I was gradually sinking into the middle my bed. Then as I gradually sink into it, I’d gradually be on the underside of it. Then I’d go beyond the bottom of my house. Into the earth. Gradually… what’s that? It’d be like sinking in the middle of Japan. By doing that, I’d fall asleep. By imagining that sort of thing, I’d be able to sleep. Mm.
But I rarely have times when I can’t sleep. I’d definitely be able to fall asleep. Well, it’s kinda… Anko-san. Try that out sometime when you can’t sleep.
Right, next from Sora-san.
"Oh-chan, morning! I’m currently in dental hygienist school. Since I’m always studying teeth, I have a habit of gazing at teeth whenever I see actors or talents on TV. I’ve also taken a long hard look at Oh-chan’s teeth. I look at teeth more than faces. What do you think about girls who look at teeth?"
Well, that’s an occupational hazard, huh? Your eyes just naturally get drawn to it. Mm. But well, it’s fine, isn’t it? But well, on the other hand, wouldn’t people not like Sora-san looking? If your companion, for example, a friend… well, it could be a guy that you have a crush on as well. If you were having a meal with your crush and then you just kept looking at his teeth, what would he think?
That’s probably the thing. Hmm. But it’s probably embarrassing having people looking at your mouth. If you looked at their mouth instead of their eyes while talking, they’d probably wonder if you were following the conversation or not.
[BGM ‘Imaging Crazy’]
It’d be disconcerting if you looked down (while talking to someone). Well, I guess they might understand. But it’s best to keep your staring to the TV, right?
So really, if this happens with actual friends where you just stared at their teeth, your companion would probably be like, "Eh, do I have something in my teeth?" So I think you’d better keep a good balance of looking at that area.
Right, next. From Fujita-san.
"Ohno-kun, good morning. This is out of the blue, but I’m getting married on 1st November. Today is the last day I’ll be spending under my surname ‘Fujita’. Though in the past I’d dream of changing my surname as I got married, today I’m feeling a surge of sadness. Ohno-kun, this sadness should be blown away. So finally, to commemorate, could you address me as ‘Fujita-san’? With your favour please."
Fujita-san! Fujita-san! (laughs)
Let me change that a little. Fujita-san!
I went into 3 patterns there.
Next, one from first-year middle schooler Shiyu-san of Yokohama.
"Good morning, Sammy."
(laughs) (That came up out of the blue, ‘Sammy’.)
"It’s out of the blue, but I have a request to make of Sammy. It’s almost time for the midterm exams but for a student like me with my mind so filled with Arashi that I can’t concentrate, I’d like the message below from Sammy."
Ohh. This is what Sammy should say, right?
Now how did Sammy go again? Well, I guess it was a little effeminate. Well, let’s just go with the flow.
Geez, what on earth are you doing? You guys, hurry up and study already! Study! If you get good marks, I’ll give you a special service. So look, do your bestest!
And so with that, the weekly Friday messages have been answered. I’ll be awaiting your mail. The address is email@example.com. I’ll be waiting for you to send me lots of messages.
See you next week; this was Sammy!
He turned into a granny…(laughs)
