Thumbs down Re: Did O-Sensei have a sense of humor?

I once read a story about a student accompanying O'sensei to Tokyo. When the student wasn't paying attention, O'sensei ducked away and blended into the crowd. The student had his teacher's ID and money, and was responsible for looking out for him! I'm sure that O'sensei was trying to teach his student a lesson about awareness, but I think he also was feeling a bit mischievous that day.
