Bousai Zukin

Random Japanese knowledge, courtesy of Mrs Desu.

In Japanese primary schools, all children are asked to bring a "Bousai Zukin" (literally protective headcloth) to school. Used as a cushion for your seat in class, it doubles as a mantle to protect your head in case of fire or earthquake. You can bet that when baby desu comes along, he'll have an awesome fire-proof worsted for Monday through Thursday, and a 15oz Kurabou denim for Fridays.
