A Happy Birthday?
Situation: A husband enters the room with a bouquet of flowers in his hands.
M: Reiko, happy birthday! (Holds out a bouquet)
W: (accepts the flowers without enthusiasm): Oh… OK… But I’m allergic to flowers! How could you forget?
M: Oops. Sorry!... Hmm… What shall we do on this special day? Last year I took you to the karaoke restaurant. Remember? It was awesome!
W: Oh yes, how could I forget about that time. It was “awesome” for you to invite your mum too! And yes, it’s “awesome” to be taught how to sing on your own birthday when everyone is looking at you! Thanks to you and your mother!
M: Honey, I thought you liked it!
W: You know, on MY mum’s birthdays, my dad always makes a special dinner because it’s a special day. You promised to make this day special for me too!
M: Oh, don’t worry, honey, here comes the main part: I’ve already called your dad! Today you will go to Tokyo! Your dad is already cooking a special meal for you! Here’s a ticket. Pack up! Your train is in one hour!
W: Are you nuts? You’re sending me to Tokyo, to my parents on my birthday, aren’t you?
M: Yes, that’s what I guess you want. You haven’t visited your parents for ages, right? So, what’s wrong?
W: Because my parents live in Kyoto, not in Tokyo! You messed everything up again!
