一人前の通訳者目指して奮闘中のひよっこ通訳がのほほんと綴ります♪
Orwellian
10月12日放送 Jim Lehrerより

North Korea's orwellian TV newspeaker on Monday, more menacing today. "The Democratic People's Republic ready for dialogue and confrontation," she asserts: "but if the United States continues to pile on the pressure, it'll be considered a declaration of war."

北朝鮮の全体主義的なテレビニュースは、「朝鮮民主主義人民共和国は対話と対決、両方の用意がある」と述べた上で、「アメリカがこれ以上圧力を強めれば、宣戦布告とみなす」と語りました。

風邪が治りませぬ
先週半ばから風邪っぴき
喉が痛くなって熱っぽくなった。お腹まで痛くなるし。
先週は久しぶりに通訳の仕事があったというのに、
あいにくのこんな調子で辛かったぁ

市販の薬を飲んでも一向によくならず、
病院にいってもらった薬を飲んだらあら不思議。
喉の痛みがかなり引いて、元気も出てきた。
しかし今度はくしゃみ・鼻水がでてくるようになってしまった
鼻がつたぁ・・・・っとでてきてしまって、
もうこの数日間は鼻をかみまくってお鼻真っ赤っ赤
もう痛いのなんの。微妙に腫れてるし・・・。
薬は1週間もらったんで飲んでるけど、
鼻水の薬ないんだけどなぁ・・・・

『長引くよ』って先生いってたけど、ほんとだよ。くぅ。


WHY WE LOVE CHILDREN
NUDITY
I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!"

OPINIONS
On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, "The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents."

KETCHUP
A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle."

MORE NUDITY
A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, "What's the matter, haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"

POLICE # 1
While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, "Are you a cop?" Yes," I answered and continued writing the report. "My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right? "Yes, that's right," I told her. "Well, then, "she said as she extended her foot toward me, "would you please tie my shoe?"

POLICE # 2
It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring in at me "Is that a dog you got back there?" he asked. "It sure is," I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the van. Finally he said," What'd he do?"

ELDERLY
While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, "The tooth fairy will never believe this!"

DRESS-UP
A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning."

DEATH
While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought ! his father always said: "Glory be unto the Faaaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he gooooes."

SCHOOL
A little girl had just finished her first week of school." I'm just wasting my time," she said to her mother . "I can't read, I can't write and they won't let me talk!"

BIBLE
A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages "Mama, look what I found," the boy called out. "What have you got there, dear?" With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, "I think it's Adam's underwear!"
ああ、10月に・・・
今日から10月です
なんかすっかり秋めいてきました。
ちょっとまえに金木犀のいい匂いがとても心地よかったのですが、
それも終わってしまいました。

9月の上旬から、更新が途絶えてしまっていて、
気にはなっていたのですが、あれよあれよと10月に。
ネタはいくつか書き留めてはいたのですが、
ブログにアップするまでに至っておらず・・・。(+_+)

ものすごく忙しいわけではないので、
一体この数週間どうしていたのかと自分でも不思議ですが
何か他の事に心が向いてしまっていたのかなぁ。

ま、また改めて書きたいと思います
