Yuri: Whoa, whoa! Haruto. Where are you running to so fast?
Haruto: Sorry, Yuri. Can’t talk. I’m in a hurry to mail a package to my mom.
Yuri: What are you doing that for?
Haruto: It’s a package for her birthday. It’s in two days, and the post office’s cut off for shipments is in 15 minutes!
Yuri: Two days? Oooh. I hate to tell you this, but your shipment is probably not going to get there in time.
Haruto: Huh? But it has to. What if I send it by air?
Yuri: Again, I hate to tell you, but most carriers ship by plane anyways these days.
Haruto: What if I pay for extra postage and send it overnight?
Yuri: Hate to be the one to tell you, but I don’t think overnight service is an option for you. Is your label addressed correctly?
Haruto: I think so. I double-checked the zip code. And although I’m not sure it’s required, I even listed the contents of the box in case the post office needs to know. See?
Yuri: Yes, looks good. But, wait! It says” N-V”. What’s N-V?
Haruto: That’s the abbreviation for the state of Nevada.
Yuri: Nevada? Not Japan, huh?
Haruto: Yeah, I hate to tell you, but even Japanese women turning 70 years old want to have a crazy Las Vegas birthday party they’ll never forget.
Yuri: Haha! Ok… GO! You’ve got a package to mail.
