Interview: Johnnie Morton


Attending Japanese school

I think I attended for 3 years. And then my parents finally broke down. It was hard going at first because, you know I’m a little kid going to Japanese school waking up like at 7 o’clock on Saturdays and most kids have their pajamas on with the big bowl of cereal watching cartoons and it was pretty tough. I’d always try to fake like I was sick at first and then my parents would say if I was too sick to go to school I was too sick to play outside so I’d suck it up and go to school and came back home and play.
