This week there was a national holiday on Friday giving the company workers a rare 3-day weekend as the company decided that making us come in on Saturday (as per the usual rules) would be abnormally cruel. Though having a holiday also means that the dorm’s cafeteria is not in operation so I had to hit the town, which consists of roughly 3 restaurants, 2 supermarkets, and a somewhat sketchy karaoke place, in order to find some food.
So at noon I went outside, donned my azure helmet and rode out on my trusty bike ‘John’. However, instead of taking the straight shot to the supermarket I decided to take a detour in order to scope out a bit more of the surrounding area. This expedition led me to the residential areas of the town which were filled with houses in varying levels of decay. Two hours, and a couple of pictures, later I finally arrived at the supermarket. And upon entering I ran into Butterfly. He was there to pick up some food for himself as well as bring some snacks and drinks for a 見舞い (visiting a sick person).
Me: 見舞い？ Who’s sick?
Me: F-san? The girl from China?
Me: That looks and acts exactly like your first love?
Me: 頑張れ! (I wish you thorough success in whatever endeavor you decide to partake in during the visit)
