今週のフレーズ rookie mistake
Sean: So is your mother still mad at you for putting her on speaker phone the other day when we were over at your apartment?
Anne: She was for a few days. It was a rookie mistake that someone with my experience with cell phones shouldn't have made. Especially when we were handling heavy furniture parts and tools that could've easily given away that she was on speaker phone. What was I thinking?
Saori: Well, you were focused on getting your new bookshelf up as quickly as possible.
Sean: I don't think anything your mom was talking about was scandalous anyway.
Anne: Me neither. But the fact that my 19-year-old cousin Alex's girlfriend is now expecting is pretty scandalous to my mom. Alex's mom had a rough time with Alex getting into trouble when he was younger and dropping out of high school, so I think she's particularly worried about her, too.
Saori: I can understand why your mom might be worried.
Anne: I just have faith that Alex is going to be OK. He might not have been the type to do well in school, but he has street smarts.
Sean: Well, if he's got your stamp of approval, I bet he'll be fine.
