Sometimes when I’m out and about and I’m tired at being stated at just for being foreign this odd thing happens. I begin to do things to deliberately make people uncomfortable. I will make jokes to complete strangers in half Japanese or eat fruit in public, this time it was on the train.
Maybe I am hoping I’ll be sent home for being too weird.
