I was having a convo with MIL and SIL the other night when I couldn't sleep, they advised me to count sheep and were amazed when I said we also do that in English too. (Incidentally, MIL thought Mary had a little lamb was a Japanese only song, heelllloooo it's Mary not Mariko!)
Then we got on to the topic of what our imaginary sheep look like. My sheep are very anime. Fluffy, white with big kind eyes and they make a little bleating noise as they jump over a cute little cartoon gate. There is always only one sheep jumping over at one time and I never see any of the other sheep.
MIL was similar to mine except not quite as cute and the sheep is being herded into a pen full of all the other sheep.
SIL's sheep was scary looking; with those big curly horn-like things on it's head and a big woolly coat. She only ever sees one sheep and it's just walking randomly, no gate.Ryota's sheep is also the big scary, horny (hehe you know what I mean) one but he explicitly specified that the sheep is smelly with lots of flies around it.
If I'd studied psychology for any longer than 6 months I'm sure I could read something into our personalities from our sheep images.
Anyone else have any different ones???
