My ‘asoko’ (down there) is active, too.  Will this be cut out? ‘Makabe Togi’ came here from nothing. If I can do it, then you guys can do it, too. Anything to ask me? Nothing? Nothing? Im going to a ‘kyabakura’ (hostess bar, where ladies serve you drinks and entertain you) after this. Hey, you, girl (to a female staff member). You are looking at me like I am so boring. Don’t ignore me. You are cute. Give me your phone number. Is that a yes? Yes?”
