Yakiimo

Yakiimo is one of the most annoying foods in Japan.
How can roasted sweet potatoes be annoying you  ask? It's not because I think they taste bad, or because they're hard to get. In fact this time of year they're super easy to get. There are people who drive around in trucks who cook and sell them, sort of like an ice cream truck.  Unfortunately, unlike an ice cream truck the way they get your attention isn't a nice catchy tune. It's a steam whistle. It doesn't stop and is super loud. The first few times a heard it I thought it was an air raid siren going off. At least those stop; the yakiimo whistles continues on until it's out of earshot. Heaven forbid they stop. I had to listen to one for half an hour today.
