Haiku Poem – 昼休み

midday rumbling
10-12 but only 8
One hour sprint

(Scott version)
どのみせ も よさん オーバー おかね ない

しょうご なる ランチ の よさん はち ドル よ

(Michiko version)
いきぬき は はち ドル ランチ ひる やすみ

I have no set time for lunch. I can go anytime. Normally, I leave at 11:45 but it can be earlier or later. I have a one hour lunch break. BUT! It is a 15 minute walk to and from downtown. So I really have 30 minutes. There are many restaurants in downtown. However if I don’t have a plan, I end up wasting my time looking for a place. Most of the places are about the same price, $10-$12. However, my budget is about $8 a day including weekends. Usually I can stay within budget but sometimes I want to be fat and order a lot of food. My wallet is mad about that but my stomach is happy.
