Oh, Takao, good timing. We’re going to that new oyster bar. Please join us.
Oysters? They’re my favorite. I’d love to join you.
Great. The oysters are shipped from Hiroshima every day.
Really? Hiroshima’s my hometown.
Then you must be quite picky about oysters.
Oh, I just got an email from my boss. I’ll be right back. So, please wait a few minutes, OK?
Sure, no problem. Happy hour doesn’t start until six.
Hi, Annabelle. Eleanor and I are going to go to the Desperate Rats’ farewell concert next week. Would you like to join us?
What? Didn’t they have a farewell concert in 2018?
Oh, yeah, they did. But they got back together again.
How many farewell concerts have they had?
I think just two.
Well, I like the lead guitarist, but their music is overrated.
So, do you want to go?
Let me think about it.
Hi, Cheryl. What’s new?
Hi, Ben. Well, I have big news. I’m moving next week.
Really? That is big news. So, you finally found a place you like, huh?
Yes. This new apartment is absolutely perfect!
I’m very happy for you. By the way, will you need some help?
That’s very kind of you, Ben, but I’m leaving everything to a professional moving company.
Good idea. That will save you a lot of hassle.
Sorry, I had to take a phone call. My old friends from college are planning to hold rakugo event soon.
It’s a form of comedy performed in front of an audience.
Oh, is it like standup comedy?
Actually, it’s more like “sit-down” comedy. The comedian sit on cushions as they perform.
Sounds interesting. Can I come?
Of course! It might be hard to understand the humor, though.

I left my parasol in my car. I’ll be right back.
Could you watch my bag, please?

Hi, good morning.
Hi. By the way, I’m going on a business trip to Nagoya next week. I’m going to buy some delicious miso for my wife, who is a vegetarian.
You’re from there, right? Can you recommend any good miso shops?
