An autobiographical series written brightly about Sumiko Nishioka’s family and nursing care, which was well received at FRaU, has finally been made into a book.
Mother, 80 years old, with dementia.
Older sister, 47 years old, Down syndrome.
Father, 81 years old, drunk.
By the way, I’m a former SM one-hit wonder female comedian. 45 years old. Single, late.
Everyone is junk.
When I was appearing in variety shows as a queen character
“Where are you?” “It’s me!” “Nishioka~ Sumiko!” With her long hair fluttering, she became popular for her comedy chats dressed as an SM queen, and she also appeared on variety shows. Sumiko Nishioka is an entertainer. At the age of 48, Nishioka-san, who has cut her hair short and has a short haircut, says with love that “everyone is dumb”, telling the story of her family and nursing care.
A transformed home.
A mother I don’t know
I never dreamed of returning to my parents’ house to live there. Cup noodles and canned food with disposable chopsticks still stuck in them, brown side dishes stuck in plastic containers,
half-cement-colored mandarin oranges, charcoal-like banana peels, and other leftovers and debris are overflowing on the low table. . It’s a small garbage mansion.
In any situation, no matter the disease, no one is a “clunk”. But, with love, I call my family “Ponkotsu”.
