When I was a wee lass, I went to Japan to study. One of the first thing I bought was a bandana that said 一番 (ichiban – “number one”). I was an all-or-nothing type of person back then; to become worthy of wearing the bandana, I’d have to become the best foreign student in my course.
Spoiler alert: I didn’t.
