Well, what do you know? My deadline for this translation is not today, but in fact tomorrow or the day after. This means I have more time to spend in the unprofitable exercise of blog-writing!
The following is an email I got from Nazo, who is currently in London.
"Natural born lover", eh? What is that makes me deserved of that title?
Are you panicking unnecessarily again. Maybe if I come back out to Tokyo and we live together, we could have a calming effect on each another. You could help me with translations while I sooth your anxiety. Sound good?
Not got yourself a good man, yet??
I read the email and immediately fell into an lovely daydream in which Nazo and I lived together in the same tiny flat in Tokyo. The apartment would be a cheap place towards Saitama or Chiba, but still within the Tokyo metro area. A bit shabby, but fundamentally orderly because Nazo likes to keep things tidy. I would come home at night and we would have ginger tea together and watch bad movies. We would date other people but cuddle up to one another once in awhile.
Nazo even had a prophetic dream about our sharing a flat, which makes me think that we are destined to share a flat except that his dream was set in London. In the dream, I leave the apartment angrily, carrying an umbrella. Nazo follows me and asks me what's wrong. "I have a date," I say coldly.
And maybe that's why we should never share a flat after all - even though I'm up for it, and Nazo, for all intents and purposes, appears to be equally serious. It would be a delicate thing, sharing an apartment with Nazo.

Bueno, yo no te entiendo y tu no me entiendes, que lastima, tal vez hubiera sido interesante entendernos, pero yo no mastico mucho el inglés y de seguro tu no le haces al español.|
