A talkative sort of day

Oh man. We worked on UQ Holder! today, and I gotta tell you, this month's chapter is exactly as bad as one of the more chatty chapters of Negima. I mean, as far as having a lot of words to translate. It was a pretty good read, though, so I can't complain too much, especially since the text did get less dense as it went on.

As soon as we finished it, we got a call from Hagger, so Athena started turning on the Switch, but he said he didn't want to play video games, he just wanted to chat. Aww, that was so sweet! So we asked what he wanted to talk about, and he said whatever you want, so we started asking about school, what did he learn, did he have math today, did he have history today, etc. The answer was mostly, "I don't know." And then, as abruptly as he called, he said goodbye. I hope we didn't overwhelm him with all our questions. He did call back later to play Splatoon, though, so at least we know we didn't scare him off entirely.

Today I'm thankful for finishing our monthly simulpub, determining that our other monthly simulpub probably won't hit until next week (although next week is Golden Week, so there's still a chance things will be different...), getting to chat with Hagger (we both got the feeling Hermie was present, too, but she didn't say much), getting to play Splatoon with both Hagger and Hermie, and getting to watch two more episodes of Miraculous today.
