Thanks a lot, Lucky or Happy moo moo!/ラッキー（？）それともハッピー（？）モーモー、ありがとう♪
We had rain today in Hakodate and it was cold. I've set a Kotatsu heater. I don't like to drive at night because view gets narrow and in addition, when it rains, it gets narrower. But I had to drive and left home.
When I was driving, I smelled odor of incense from somewhere. Then, I remembered a story that someone whose death is approaching smells incense... I was afraid that it was a bad omen of a traffic accident. I drove much carefully than usual in raining night. But still I felt the odor of incense...
After a short while, I felt something in my mouth. There was a grain.
At last, I realized that it was a grinded grain of whilt pepper I used at dinner. The odor came from my mouth!
As soon as I was really relieved, I saw a pink or red spotted car passing by. It was a Lucky or Happy taxi of Moo Moo Taxi Co. Pink spotted taxi is called Lucky and red one is Happy. I coudn't identfy which taxi was that in dark, but anyway, my anxiety was wiped away. Thanks, moo moo!
