A typical conversation

4 Apr

(held in Japanese)

Japanese friend: Did you have school today?

Me: Yes. The students are on vacation right now, but I still go into work.

Japanese friend: Oh, that must be very boring.

Me: Yes, a little, but I am preparing for the new school year.

J friend: When do the new students arrive?

Me: I think we have the new student ceremony on Friday.

J friend: Don’t you have the school’s opening ceremony on Friday?

Me: Oh, that’s right.

J friend: Do the new students arrive on Monday?

Me: Yes, that’s right, it’s on Monday.

 

…. Sometimes I think that the entire country is just humoring my presence here.
