Todayโ€™s Japanese folk tale is also about snakes! Snaketober :snake:
This one is a pretty amusing little story, even more so with the narratorโ€™s old man impression :laughing:
Thereโ€™s a link on this one on how to make your own origami snake: snake 1 / snake 2

If your name is ใŸใฎใใ‚…ใ† you may get confused for ใŸใฌใ and then have to pretend that you are in fact a tanuki to trick a snake :raccoon:

~ New Words ~
่‰ฒใฃใฝใ„ (ใ„ใ‚ใฃใฝใ„) - Erotic, amorous
ใƒคใƒ‹ (่„‚) - On WK, but the sole meaning (for the kanji) on here is just fatโ€ฆ Jisho states itโ€™s fat; grease; lard, this makes the words itโ€™s used in make so much more sense. On this story itโ€™s used to mean tobacco tar โ€œใ‚ฟใƒใ‚ณใฎใƒคใƒ‹โ€
็—บใ‚Œใ‚‹ (ใ—ใณใ‚Œใ‚‹) - to become numb, also new kanji! Which means numb/paralysed.
