Like a plum!

An inversion of a previous yojijukugo:


Literally: outside – soft/weak/gentle – inside – sturdy/strong

Alternately: Gentle but firm. An iron fist in a velvet glove. Speaking softly but carrying a big stick. Appearing soft or weak, but actually strong.

(Sorry, folks; no media this time)

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
