"LITTLE MISS WHALEBONE" -- Female Sumo Champ (!) of Old Japan

"Sumo (相撲 sumō?) is a competitive contact sport where a wrestler (rikishi) attempts to force another wrestler out of a circular ring (dohyō) or to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of the feet."
Sha: Rikishi? Perhaps. I was trying to force a tomoi girl to get out of my sight. But Rikishi sounds too Japanese. How about Rikisha?
"The sumo tradition is very ancient, and even today the sport includes many ritual elements, such as the use of salt purification, from the days when sumo was used in the Shinto religion."
Sha: Salt purification? Indeed. There were no sweet words used last week. The person used salt to rub on any surface she could find. She told me, "Don't you know that everyone hates you? You have been treating everyone like shit!" I believe, her salty words were PURE from her heart.
The winner of a sumo bout is either:
a) The first wrestler to force his opponent to step out of the ring.
Sha: I chased her out an she yelled at me.
b) The first wrestler to force his opponent to touch the ground with any part of his body other than the bottom of his feet.
Sha: Yup...her whole body was out of my sight. *sigh*
Sha has a new profession. A female sumo wrestler. Last week, she fought with a tomoi girl who screamed on top of her lungs to humiliate and downgrade her.
While looking down at her freckled face, I wonder how intelligent I could be - should I fight? Or should I just listen and be silent.
Sha chose to fight.
Because she is no b*tch. Tomoi girl was crossing the border when she called her that!
Stomp my feet...this sumo girl is back.
People said "see the leg la!"
Sha is saying - "see the fat la!"
Don't play with fat girl like me.
