Ha ha, this is my first time seeing the honorific "O" in front of soba noodles.
My grandma spoke very formal Japanese.

That's really cool that this is your authentic experience learned from a genuine Japanese person. I thought it must be the case since I've never seen it written that way anywhere else, and you have a grandmother from Japan.

Japanese is the only language I've come across that changes depending on the gender of the person speaking it.
My Lord and my God.

I understand that Korean is like that also, only more so. Everything is hierarchical. You even have to know the age of the person you are speaking with in order to know whether they are older or younger than you in order to know what grammar to use.

Students that learn Japanese in school in America sound like women when they go to Japan because they have been taught a very formal, polite style of Japanese. They have to look to manga or anime if they want to learn how men in Japan really speak. e.g. calling themselves "watakshi" instead of "boku" or "ore."

Supper,

Edamame pasta w/ EVOO. Cauliflower, broccoli, and brussels sprouts (all steamed and sprinkled with chia seeds, garlic powder and evoo).
1/2 cup kimchi.

Actually, I eat the same meal 4-5 days a week.

Well, it's nutrient dense and eating that sort of stuff got me off a bunch of meds.

Today I cooked 1/4 lb of grass fed beef. Broke it up and threw it in a bowl of more brussels sprouts and broccoli.
