Long Time, No See

The Japanese LOVE this phrase. I hear it everyday! If I haven't seen someone in over a week they are guaranteed to use this phrase. This is an odd little phrase that we all know so well, but can't remember the last time we actually used it. I start laughing every time somebody uses it now. It is like a running joke I have with myself. The people around me just cock their heads and look strangley at me. Then they just shake their heads and say something I can't understand - probably something about how foreigners are all wacko.

Gosh, that is one American phrase that I find really annoying but it does say a lot in 4 very simple words. Mum

Speaking of long time no see, I'm sorry I've been such a total flake! If you're still interested, we should get together for a drink and some chitchat in the upcoming week.
