Better Cigarette Boxes(改良型タバコケース)

都筑区センター北 井上歯科クリニック 院長 井上です。

前回のお化け屋敷を題材に、英会話の先生にスキットを作ってもらいました。

A:How can Japan *deter people from smoking?
B:One way Japan can deter people from smoking is changing cigarette boxes.
A:How so?
B:I think printing images of decaying teeth on cigarette boxes would stop many people 
  from smoking!
A:Why?
B:Because, in Japan, there is an amusement attraction that talks about a women who had perfect teeth. She had a perfect life and had a family, but her baby never grew any teeth. Even at the age of 1, the baby still had no teeth. This enraged the mother-in-law. One day, the husband bought a doll for their baby and the mother would pull out her own teeth and put it into the dolls mouth, hoping that it would help  the child grow its own teeth. After that, the baby grew one tooth, but the tooth was black. This made the mother-in-law even madder. She blamed the mother, claiming it was her fault her grandchild didn't have any teeth.Then, one night, the mother went  crazy and killed her husband and mother-in-law.
A:Oh, that's a terrible story, but, I'm confused, how would that story stop people from smoking?
B:Smoking equals bad teeth and the story talks about a woman's fear about not having good teeth and how it drove her mad and eventually pushed her to kill her family. InJapan... it is a very scary story... so many Japanese people want to have good teeth.
A:So...?
B:So, if we show Japanese people that smoking causes you to have bad teeth... less people will smoke.
A:Oh, I get it! What a good idea!
