You know, by chance, I decided to drop by in surprise 홍길동 at his 번데기 restaurant last night. He asked me “hey, John! It’s getting late. Would you help me to close off the store for the night? We have to close the windows and close the doors and clean up and brush off the chairs brush off the counter and make everything nice and clean.” We did that. We decided to sit around and talk for a while. So he was very nice and good. Actually he decided to send off his girlfriend 민희 to go get us a couple drinks. We set around talking almost all night. It was a good experience.
