Dad, can I ask you a funny question?
It depends on how funny it is. Anyway, go ahead, Roxy.
How did you meet Mom?
Goodness, that was so long ago. I met her at a flea market in Yoyogi Park.
Really? How did you start talking to her?
We were both looking at the same old pots, I think. Wait, they were paella pans!
Oh, so that’s when you started making paella?
Yes, I think so.
Deena, look up at the sky. Isn’t that a UFO? It’s not an airplane, that’s for sure.
Are you kidding?
Quick! Record it on your phone.
Good idea. I’ve never seen anything move like that before.
Wait a minute. I know what it is. I think it’s a drone.
I think you’re right. Someone’s trying to fool us.
It’s very easy to make something resembling a UFO these days with our technology.
Doug, I’m not sure what I should do now.
What do you mean?
I’m thinking perhaps I should stay in Japan.
But you’ve been accepted to Columbia. It’s an excellent opportunity.
I know, but I don’t want to leave you behind.
I can always visit you in the States.
But we’ll be apart for a long time.
You can’t give up your dream, Shiho. You don’t want to do something you’ll regret later.
What are you reading, Jessica?
It’s a book by Stephen Hawking.
Oh, Hawking. I met him once a long time ago. Interesting fellow.
You actually met Professor Hawking?
Yes, this was when I was in university. I was living in Brighton at the time. I went to London to do research, and he was giving a lecture.
That’s amazing! Hawking changed the way we look at the universe.
Yes, he certainly was a genius.

There’s a guy waiting to see you in the lobby.
The receptionist says he’s really funny and good-looking.

Hi. You look happy. What happened?
I met a cute girl at a cafe in Shibuya. We talked a lot about the novel she was reading.
I think we can become good friends.
