Hi, Hiromi. What are you reading?
Oh, hi, Professor Fox. It’s a book by Brendan Peacock, the archaeologist. Do you know him?
Well, I know of him. He’s really famous.
Actually, he’s a friend of mine.
Really? How come?
We went to the same high school.
I’m jealous because he’s much more famous than I am.
Well, you’re an excellent English teacher, Professor Fox.
Thank you, Hiromi. I do my best.
Mariko, I hear that you like to go shopping.
Yes, I love shopping! Tomorrow is the first sale of the year. I can’t wait!
Let’s go shopping together. I’m interested in seeing a New Year’s sale in Japan.
It’ll be crowded. Lots of people want to buy “lucky bags.”
Yes, I’ve heard that you don’t know what’s inside them.
That’s why they’re so much fun,
Ah, you like mysteries.
Mr. Sato, I’m excited to be a part of your New year’s celebrations!
We’re happy to have you with us! Now, let’s drink a toast to the New Year!
Oh no! I’ve broken the glass. I’m so sorry.
Don’t worry about it. Accidents will happen.
I’m so embarrassed.
Forget about it. It was an old wine glass anyway. I’ll get you another one.
Let’s toast again. OK, Happy New year!
What’s this? A present for me?
Wine glasses? You shouldn’t have, Ally. I told you to forget about it.
I wanted to do something.
OK, thank you. Now let’s have something different for lunch.
No ozoni today?
Today we’re having “Seven Herbs Porridge.” People say you enjoy good health for a year if you eat it.
Oh, it’s delicious!
Yes, it’s one of my favorites.

What do you make of Cathy?
I’ve never met her in person. I just know of her.
I think Ken knows her well. Why don’t you talk to him?

I want to marry him. What do you think?
I’ve heard a rumor that he bought a car that was way beyond his budget.
Are you OK with that? You’ll have to pay back the loan with him.
