Soba Phantom

| November 27, 2011 | 0 Comments

In Iwate Prefecture, Japan, a famous regional food is wanko soba, soba being buckweat noodles, and wanko soba being a specialty style of eating: challengers attempt to eat 100 small bowls of soba in one sitting. Anyone who tries the challenge is offered bowl after bowl from a waitress standing close by, relentlessly pushing bowls onto the diner, regardless of whether he is trying to tell her he has had enough.


This is the wanko soba phantom. She appears only for a brief second in dark corners or dim corridors. She appears to people who feel like they have been pushed to their limits, physically, emotionally or mentally, and are about to snap. She says nothing, but for the individuals unlucky enough to see her and about to be pushed into complete breakdown her message is clear:

“just one more”

Day22 - Zoa Appleton - Waitress by George Ward

Zoa is a waitress at the local dinner, Checkers, where she works with her husband Sam (Day 23).  Since it is a small establishment, she has to clean the place as well as wait on tables.  It’s a thankless job but it must be done.
