I met up with my American colleague yesterday. We attended mass at a Catholic church. He is not Catholic, but he is interested in Catholicism. I was glad he enjoyed the Catholic rite. After that, we went to an Irish bar, but I didn’t have ID, so we had to switch bars. We ended up at a Japanese karaoke bar. Even though the place was a bit noisy from all the singing, we were able to talk about a lot of things in both English and Japanese. It was the best night of my life in America. I really appreciate him.
