no sweat お安いご用
(Rachel is on the phone)
Rachel: No sweat. I'd love to. Yeah, text me later with details. OK. We'll talk again soon.
Kenichi: Who was that?
Rachel: It was my former co-worker, Makiko. Remember the "returnee?"
Kenichi: Right, the "kikokushijo."
Kenichi: Doesn't she live really close to us?
Rachel: Uh-huh. We're always talking about getting together, but we just haven't gotten around to it. But now we'll definitely see each other. She apparently fell down the stairs today and twisted her ankle, and needs someone to walk her dog. She asked if we could do that for her for a couple of weeks while she heals.
Kenichi: Wasn't she married?
Rachel: She got divorced earlier this year.
Kenichi: That's too bad.
Rachel: She was really apologetic about asking us to be her dog walker, so I let her know I was more than happy to take on the task and that you would be willing to cooperate, too.
Rachel: I think it's a rescue dog, and a mix of some kind. I ran into her once when she was walking it. It's really friendly.
Kenichi: I feel sorry for Makiko, but I'm kind of excited about this.
