My friend UPS was supposed to be arriving in Japan today. However, in all of our conversations about arrival date, I realized that we forgot to think about the international date line; his flight will actually be arriving tomorrow.
I met UPS when I joined Delta Upsilon Fraternity. His father is from India and his mother is from Vietnam, but they met and got married in Canada. UPS sounds and acts Canadian, but likes to describe himself (accurately) as a brown guy. The nickname UPS comes from the courier company’s tagline “what can brown do for you?”, which I believe UPS has used a few times a pick-up line.
He just recently graduated from University, and decided to take a 6 month tour of Asia, including his parents countries, but also Cambodia and Laos. I told him that if he was on my side of the planet that he should stop by Japan for a few days. He called his travel agent, made changes, and will be spending 4 days in Japan. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
I ended up using my day off to clean up the apartment and my room, and to be very lazy.
