#Slaving in the Godowsky House

I am worn out with endless work. Is it because of the exhaustion, but when she comes with more tasks for me to do, for some reason I can do nothing but utter “Thank you.”
When Mrs. Godowsky complained, “Don’t say ‘Thank you’ all the time to everything I say!” again I repeated “Thank you.” She then burst into laughter.

She also roars with laughter at my messy pronunciation of the word “shocked”, because I pronounce it like “shokuteddo”.
When once with my brain addled with work I washed together dishcloths and floorcloths, the way she acted, I thought she was surely going to go crazy。

“Immediately after getting married, I lived with my sisters-in-law. I did a lot of things for them every day. One day, however, I fired back and told them to do their work by themselves. When I see you, you are just like I used to be then. Because you are a good person, you think everyone around you is good like you. I will show you I am not like that!”

Once, Mrs. Godowsky shared with me one of her old memories,
“When we were at the family vacation house in Arizona, some stuff of my sister-in-law’s disappeared. My father-in-law forced me to open my suitcase so he could check my luggage. I will never forget that humiliation.”
In Japan, a brother’s wife is a person originally coming from the outside of a family. However, once married into the family, she is accepted as a family member. I was shocked when I heard her story. It is simply unimaginable to show such mistrust to a family member where I come from.


For all her talk, I think Mrs. Godowsky was worried I would realize how hard she was working me. I guess that is the reason why she would sometimes say, “Never tell me you have a mind to leave us!”

In the Godowsky couple’s bedroom there was a red leather jewelry box with a key attached to it. I wonder if I will I ever marry a rich guy and own a jewelry box with a key.
The following day, since I had no need for a jewelry box, I settled for buying just a key. I was quite a fool then.

With me as her audience, Rosemary sits in a kids’ chair and, pretending to play the guitar, she sings for me. These angelic children will very soon start living a life that revolves around money and pleasure, just like their parents. For these people, science and art exist just for the sake of appearance and vanity.

When the mother is not home, my burden – including the responsibility for the children – becomes heavy. Often, the couple goes out at night partying, staying out until morning.
When the parents are out, the children go wild, as if they are challenging the babysitter. They stare at me fixedly, waiting to see my reaction.

For Christmas, the whole Godowsky family always gathers together in Arizona.
“When we leave, you will probably go and sleep like the dead.”

Translated by Saiko
