Something Incredible

On May 2, someone rang my house doorbell.
To my surprise, it was a policeman. Yes, a real detective officer! According to him, there was a robbery case happened in my neighbour so he was waking around and getting information about the crime. Since it happened at midnight so I could not be any help.
5月2日に来訪者がありました。驚いたことに、本物の刑事でした!近所で泥棒があり聞き込み捜査中なのだそうです。しかし起きたのは真夜中で、何も役に立てませんでした。

This is the first time I've seen a real ID of the officer. It was like a movie.... I should say, movies copied it anyway.
So I told about it to my best friend by on-line chat. Then she mentioned another big news. It was about 11:45 in Tokyo time, she said a news flash of "Osama Bin Laden was killed." At that time we didn't have much details. Now it became such a big one and runs around the world.
Ah, what a incredible surprise day!
本物の警察手帳を見たのは初めてでした。何だか映画みたいな・・いや、映画がそれを真似ているわけで・・
そんな訳でこのニュースを(米国の)親友にチャットで話していたら、向こうからとんでもないニュースが飛び込んできました。東京時間の午前11時45分頃だったと思います。向こうのニュース速報でビンラディン容疑者の殺害を伝える第1報が入ったとのことでした。その時点で私達はまだ詳細を知りませんでしたが、後にこんな大きなニュースとなって世界中を駆けめぐるとは!
全く驚きの日でした!

Too bad! I should have stayed FB a bit longer. The weather here aren't good enough. Beside raining, yellow sand storm that was from China has been bothered us.I had my car wash though, it became yellow in following day!
Sorry to know about Chrissyham. Went to ER?! Oh, boy! What was wrong with? I'll ask you more at FB later. Tell her to take really good care and get well soon.
Enjoy your card game and hope you'll win over. Ja ney!
