Just call me Hide.
David : What should I call you?
Hideo : My name is Hideo, but you can just call me Hide.
David : Mari told me in San Francisco to call you Hideo.
Hideo : It's hard to pronounce Hideo, so why not call me Hide?
David : That's a nickname, right?
Hideo : Right! What should I call you, David?
David : Everyone calls me Dave.
Hideo : All right! I'll call you Dave then.
David : By the way, Hideo. Oh, no, I said it again! Do you mind me calling you Hideo?
Hideo : No, call me whatever you like.
David : Thanks, Hideo. Well, could you show me around Akihabara now?
Hideo : OK, Dave. My son Kenichi is waiting for us there.
