Today I asked the Sonbeam if he had met the parents of his girlfriend Hiromi, whom he has been dating for about 18 months. No, he hadn’t, because they don’t want to meet him. Why not? Is it because you’re a gaijin, I asked? Nope, they just don’t want to meet or hear about any boyfriend. As far as they’re concerned, she’s too young to be dating. Startled, I asked just how old is she? 14?
Nope. She’s 25, and a grad student. And she’s still not allowed to have boyfriends.
Good luck with that one, son!
