[Anne and Andy are talking about their upcoming family trip.
See here for vocabulary. 単語についてはここを参照。]
Andy: Honey! That was the beauty parlor.
They say your beautician is available tomorrow morning.
Anne: Oh, good.
I do want to get my hair done
before we go get the passport pictures taken.
Did you take the appointment?
Andy: Yeah, but I like you just the way you are.
Anne: This isn't for you. It's for me.
Andy: Ten thirty.
Andy: I know it's for you, Babe.
I'm just reminding you that I like you just the way you are.
Anne: I know you.
You're just trying to save the beautician's fees.
Gotta keep them out of the welfare line, you know.
Andy: Hey, that's my line!
But it's a good thing we thought to check the passports.
Anne: I'm the one who thought to check them.
Andy: Well, I knew ours were expired.
Anne: But you had forgotten the children's, hadn't you.
Andy: (Sighing.) It's always my fault.
Anne: Now, Sweetie, I'm not blaming you, just saying.
Andy: Yeah, yeah.
Anyway, what else do we need to do to get ready for this trip?
Anne: Mary said she'd take the turtle while we're gone.
Andy: She has so many pets.
Shouldn't we ask somebody else?
Anne: She already has turtle food and a pond for her turtles.
And she feeds them every morning, so it won't be a change to her schedule.
And Max will enjoy having some friends around for a change.
Andy: Hmm. He might get lonely when he comes back.
Okay, so we'll need to take Max over to Mary's place the day before we leave.
Anne: I told her I'd take Max over on the 27th.
She said that would be fine.
Andy: Two days early?
Anne: She'll be off work that day.
Andy: That's sure nice of her.
What do the kids think of the itinerary?
Anne: Amy said, "Too much culture!"
Anne: And Alex said, "Too busy! Can't we just do the culture stuff on the 'net?"
Andy: Oh, dear. What do you think?
Anne: I think we should ask the kids where they want to go.
Andy: But they'll just want to play and eat.
Anne: And shop?
Andy: Not Alex.
Anne: Well, let's discuss it with them, and let them choose some of the destinations.
Andy: I guess that sounds like a good idea.
