Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! As you dream merrily of kittens and puppies in rainbows in your comfortable Japanese bed, suddenly you hear screaming in Japanese. Certainly the kittens aren’t that angry…or at least, they aren’t speaking in Japanese if they are! Rousing from slumber, you open one eye cautiously to make sure a ferocious Japanese animal isn’t about to pounce on you. It turns out that it’s your roommate, who is having a fit and yelling at you in Japanese. He exclaims in Japanese, “Do you know what time it is?” You respond in Japanese, “No, but I could use ten more minutes of sleep. Thanks.” Your roommate responds in Japanese, “Our flight leaves in an hour…we are going to be late!” You bound out of bed at once and in one fell swoop throw on your clothes and run your hands through your hair. Your roommate pleads in Japanese, “Please just tell me you already packed your suitcase.” You smile and say, “Of course not!”

Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! Your roommate tells you in Japanese, “I’m going to the grocery store. Is there anything you need?” You respond in Japanese, “No, I’m going on a hunger strike. I’m not eating, so I don’t need you to buy anything for me.” Your roommate inquires in Japanese, “Oh really? What’s the cause you’re supporting this time?” You explain in Japanese, “A few of my friends and I are trying to raise awareness of the plight of starving children.” Your roommate asks in Japanese, “And you’re doing this by starving yourself?” You respond in Japanese, “Yes…I’m donating the equivalent of the meals I’m not eating to these children.” Your roommate says in Japanese, “Wouldn’t it be more practical to just write a check for the meals and still eat yourself? I’m not sure how this really raises awareness.” You think about it for a second and reply in Japanese, “Well, it’s the principle of the thing. But I am really hungry and it’s been less than a day. You might have a point!”
