I'll have to call you back.
Hello, Ty here.
This week’s prompt
You’re on a crowded bus or train and you get a phone call. (Because you know it’s rude to talk on the phone while riding crowded public transport,) you quickly tell them where you are and that you’ll call them back.

Also I goofed on where I put my いろんな[all sorts of~]. In mine, it feels like it’s saying it would happen in a bunch of different TV shows, but I wanted to say that there were a bunch of different games.
