Day XXXI: ้ฃŸใ‚ใšๅฅณๆˆฟ :lips:

Read a story on hukumusume, in the ใใ‚‡ใ†ใฎๆ–ฐไฝœๆ˜”่ฉฑ category (I went on a bit of a dive into this site and got a little lost). I think Iโ€™ve heard of this one before, or at least heard of a woman with a mouth in the back of her head part.

I think Iโ€™d be a tad worried about someone just turning up at my door asking for marriage because they can work well and that they do not eat rice.
But heโ€™s just like โ€œwhoa you donโ€™t eat rice. YES!โ€ :laughing:

Little does he know that his new wife eats literal mountains of onigiriโ€ฆ [ไฝ•ใ˜ใ‚ƒ๏ผŸ]

้ฌผๅฉ† (ใŠใซใฐใฐ) ahh so thatโ€™s where Iโ€™ve heard this before, I vaguely know about the onibaba.

~ New Words ~
ใ‘ใก (or ใ‚ฑใƒ) - Stingy, the story even has a linked description for this one.
ใ‚ใ‚‹ๆ™‚ - the ใ‚ใ‚‹ again! Looks like you can use ๆ™‚ to mean โ€œat one pointโ€ โ€œat one timeโ€.
ๅฎถใฎ็ฑณไฟต (ใ“ใ‚ใ ใ‚ใ‚‰) - Rice bale of the house, doubt this word gets much use nowadays.
ๅกฉใ‚’ไธ€ๅ‡ (ใ—ใŠใ‚’ใ„ใฃใ—ใ‚‡ใ†) - Box of salt, not exactly โ€˜newโ€™ but helpful context, the story states that one ๅ‡ is 1.8 litres (wait this is sounding familiar, havenโ€™t I already written this before?).
ใ–ใฃใใ‚Š (Hey, thatโ€™s me! almost) - has a few meanings, but in this context itโ€™s โ€œwide openโ€.
ใƒ–ใƒซใƒ–ใƒซ - to quiver / tremble (eg. in fear).
ใชใพใ‚“ใ ใถ - Buddhist term/prayer : โ€œI sincerely believe in Amitabha, Lord/Buddha have mercy on meโ€
่–่’ฒ (ใ—ใ‚‡ใ†ใถ) - Japanese Iris, which also has a link.
