Reason for being a Chibi-chan.
Words of the day
- こそばゆい = ticklish. Perhaps like 痒い.
- うらぶれる = to become shabby
- こじれる = to get complicated. Like making into a knot, perhaps. Kanji form is 拗れる.
- ちょっかい = making a pass at someone / meddling
- ヤワ = shabby; weak. ヤワイ is also valid. A Kanji form is 柔 / 柔い.
- アフタ = aphtha; aphthous ulcer; aphthous stomatitis
- 滞る = to stagnate. Kanji for stagnant. Reading of 留まる + 凍る.
- 齧る = to nibble. Has Furigana.

- 目移り = being drawn to many things; distraction
- 不用心 = unsafe; careless
- 失明 = loss of eyesight
