So you want me to work on a Saturday?

So Mike called me last weekend and said "Do you fancy helping out at an English seminar for Mikuni High School kids? Some students are being sent to Wales on a school exchange, so we're giving them some extra tuition and playing some games and stuff on Saturday. Wanna come?"

"Saturday?" I said.

"You get paid 4,000 yen", he said.

"Fair enough", I said, "I'll be there". It was only when I put down the phone that I realised 4,000 yen was only twenty quid. About half of which would be spent on petrol and tolls driving there in the first place.

Still, a good time was had by all, despite the fact that I only got two hours sleep the night before after accidentally going to a karaoke bar until five in the morning. But at least I stayed awake, unlike some people... Matt?

Thanks to Mike for a great day and a blinding curry afterwards - good work fella.
