14: New Year's (Momo & Carson)

W: Wow! We’re here, Carson. My first American New Year’s party… This is so different from New Year’s in Japan!

M: Really? How?

W: Well, back in Japan, everyone goes home to their families. Here in America, it seems to be about partying, drinking, and being with friends.

M: Ha ha, yeah! That’s ‘cause we have Christmas to spend with families!

W: It’s so strange that Japan and America have a lot of the same holidays… But they’re really not the same at all.

M: Yeah… Hey, I bet you’ve never done New Year’s with a keg before!

W: A… a keg?

M: (sighs) Momo, I explained this to you before, and you’ve seen one! A keg is a barrel-- and in college, it’s a barrel of beer! Let’s go grab a drink.

W: Hmm, that punch looks pretty good, too… Oh my gosh! Is that girl OK? She’s throwing up!

M: Ew, gross! She couldn’t even wait until midnight to drink herself sick?
