The Conversation Got More Animated

| Friendly | January 27, 2015

(My friend’s hosting a couple of Japanese exchange students, who don’t speak a lot of English. She tells me that one of them likes an anime show I like.)

Friend: “Hey, [My Name], this is [Student #1] and [Student #2].”

(Then someone who my friend knows, but I don’t, comes up and my friend starts chatting with her. I and the two Japanese students stand around awkwardly for a few minutes, because we can’t speak each other’s languages.)

Me: *quoting the first line of the hero of the show we like* “PAAASSSSTTTAAAAAA!”

Student #1: *starts bouncing up and down excitedly* [Show Name]? [Show name]? YATTA!” *’all right!’ in Japanese*

(We then spent the rest of the time quoting the show, me in very poor Japanese!)
