Anyway, the occasion was a Sayonara party for Brett (but you're coming back, right?), who got a super-cool grant from the government to study in Tokyo. Go Brett!! Everyone is really thrilled for you. Thanks for inviting us last night. It was the most fun I've ever had.
Don was made the king of cool for twenty minutes, by 5 Osaka college kids in the station who started calling things out to us on the way in. Then I came out of the restroom to see him running up the DOWN escalator while they rode up. They all exhibited a great camraderie as we rode home.
