With Christmas looming on the horizon…
Alex: Hey Lain, what are we doing for the Christmas period?
Lain: We’re going to celebrate it at my friend’s house.
Alex: Your friend’s?
Lain: Yep. The Hashimotos. They’re a bit of an old-fashioned family consisting of a single father and three daughters who my parents have been acquainted with for years. One of them is around your age, so you should try to get along with her.
Alex: You’re asking me to get along with someone who doesn’t even share a gender with me, let alone a culture?
Lain: No, I’m telling you you should. Unless you want to take the second option of being dressed in an angel costume and tied up to the top of the Christmas tree.
