■Memories of midnight snack.

 When I was a junior high school student, my mother often made me the midnight snack. The suppertime of my home at that time was PM from 5:30. Therefore, the stomach gradually became empty around in passing 9 PM. When the hunger strengthened, I felt tiredness. When studying slowly and having begun to think stopping because it had become tired, my mother had carried the midnight snack according to the timing of exquisiteness. There were a lot "soba" and noodle. When my stomach was satisfied, sleepiness gradually took me. However, I was not able to stop study since she made the midnight snack. I had not been said by her, "Study". However, she never showed me the relaxing appearance while I was studying. She silently assisted in me. I feel great of mother natural now, and am full of the gratitude.
( Note: Because digestion takes time, "soba" is not suitable for a midnight snack. )
