■ I Am Roasting
Characters; C - Chad; S - Suki
A learner and a GV during the lesson...
C: Hey Suki! How’s it going?
S: Not so good. It’s scorching hot, Chad. I am roasting!
C: Oh sorry to hear that. But, yeah, I have heard that the
temperature in Japan is soaring.
S: You bet it is!
C: Wow, you must feel like you are in an oven right now.
S: Chad, my head is so hot you can fry an egg on it!
C: Hahahaha! Oh man, that is such a funny way to describe
the weather. I have never heard that level of exaggeration
S: Oh, I wish I had been exaggerating. I can’t even remember
the last time the weather was like this.
C: Yeah. You may have to stay indoors then to avoid heat
S: I may need a portable air-conditioner!
S & C: (Laugh together)
C: I have a question to ask of you.
S: Go ahead.
C: If you had to choose one, would you rather have a burning
summer or a freezing winter for one year?
S: That is a tricky question. Those are two extreme situations
and I have never thought of that.
C: You gotta choose this time!
S: Hmmm, then I would say... a burning summer for one year.
C: Yeah? Why?
S: Well, I just really don’t miss winter at the moment.
Besides, I dislike wearing layers of winter clothes as
much as I dislike doing the laundry.
C: Hahahaha. Well I don’t know what winter is like but I do
dislike doing the laundry as well.
S: That means you must dislike winter!
