Today I heard she cried..
Sunday. 11.19.06 11:05 pm
I took my best friend to the airport this morning. She was going to Japan for her fathers "homecoming". It has been one year since is death. In the Japanese culture they celebrate the one year and I think every year after their death. It is a rememberance thing but I think the first year is the most important.
She called from the airport because the travel agent booked her flight for the wrong MONTH. She was stuck at the airport with plans for her fathers special event and no way to get to Japan. She was in tears. My friend NEVER cires. I have not seen her cry but she told me that she was in tears and did not know what to do.
The flight attendant was able to help her by selling her a buddy pass for $800.

Aww. :( I hope she feels better now. That's nice that they do that. It's like Memorial Day for us, except theirs is for their own family, not the entire nation. » Kirei
