Today’s phrase: Dasu no yo!
Dasu is the verb “to put out, take out,” so this phrase literally means “take it out!” I heard this phrase, not with taking out the trash, as you might expect (that would be gomi o sutenasai, or “throw the trash away”), but with encouraging me to cough out my phlegm. I was a sickly kid, so I heard that phrase a lot during the cold season. Even now, as I’m recovering from my sickness, I find I still hear my parents’ voices saying dasu no yo! every time I cough.
