2月22日号 これって英語で何て言う?

音声を聞いてみよう

 東京在住の日米夫婦・健一とレイチェルが主人公。「これ英語で何て言うのかな?」を考えます。

    眠りが浅い人 light sleeper   

    Kenichi: How was your trip with colleagues?

    Rachel: It was fun. We stayed at a really nice cottage with easy hiking trails nearby with great views. There was a wood-burning stove indoors where we roasted marshmallows. I taught everyone how to make s'mores.

    Kenichi: Sounds like you had a good time.

    Rachel: I did. But I stayed in a room with Miki-san, and she turned out to be the lightest sleeper on the planet.

    Kenichi: How light?

    Rachel: I think that my turning the pages of the book I was reading actually woke her up.

    Kenichi: You're exaggerating.

    Rachel: I'm not! You know I don't snore, right?

    Kenichi: Right.

    Rachel: I'm generally a quiet sleeper.

    Kenichi: Yes.

    Rachel: So the first night, Miki-san went to sleep earlier than me. I was only reading, but she kept waking up and asking me, "Nani?"

    Kenichi: Maybe she was dreaming.

    Rachel: I don't know. But the next day, she bought ear plugs.

    Kenichi: Did they work?

    Rachel: I guess not, because I apparently woke her up when I tiptoed to the bathroom. Even when I just rolled over in my bed, I felt like I was creating so much noise.
