If you’re wondering, no I didn’t write anything this sinister in the condensation collected on the bathroom mirror of my hotel bathroom after taking a shower.

As a kid I would always do this because I knew that it would show up later on when the next person would take a bath or shower. I didn’t do this for the longest time, but resumed this when Anna and I started traveling together and staying in hotels. Anything I write is in Japanese so in all likelihood the next guests wouldn’t be able to read it. All the same, I make sure to erase it all after my last shower before we check out of the hotel.
