*** Script ***
New Year's Vacation and Alcohol

M: Hey, Ali! What are you doing tonight? It's New Year's vacation!

W: Yeah! Hi Takuya. I'm not sure yet. What's up?

M: I'm going to karaoke with some friends tonight. You're allowed to bring in your own food-- and alcohol!

W: Wow, sounds like fun! OK. Let's go!

(at karaoke)

M: Hey, check this out. I brought Strong Zero for everyone!

W: Strong Zero? What's that?

M: It's a kind of chuhai—a highball made with shouchu and carbonated water. It's a great way to get really drunk for really cheap!

W: Hmm, it says only 9% alcohol, though… I don't think I believe that. Especially because American alcohol is so much stronger than Japanese.

M: (handing over Strong Zero) That's what YOU think! Here! Try a couple of these, and it'll change your mind soon enough!

W: Ha! Whatever you say, Takuya.

(A few hours later)

W: What on earth? I only had 3 of those Strong Zeros. How did I get so drunk? Ah! I think I'm going… to throw up!

M: I told you so! I think it has to do with all of the sugar and carbonation. Sugar and carbonation can make alcohol hit your system faster.

W: It HAS to be more than that… Oh no, I think I'm gonna… puke!

M: Quick! Get to the bathroom! We don't want to get kicked out of this karaoke place!
