Jill and Kate Chat about Chocolate

Kate: Unfortunately, the other thing that I have always known is a really great bargain after Christmas is all those Christmas chocolates and candies. That's the terrible thing. I went to the supermarket today to get bananas. What did I end up with? Bananas and a box of chocolates! Oops! But it was such a deal, I thought, "Oh," you know, "if we need just one chocolate or we need to give a box of chocolates to someone, it's a perfect hostess gift." So we'll just see how long that lasts unopened.

Jill: Or if you want to bring those boxes of chocolates or that box of chocolates to work, you can always do that, and I'm sure we can take care of it for you. We won't have a problem helping you eat all those chocolates.

Kate: Well, that's it. There are certainly some people in this office who would have no problem at all dealing with that. Didn't you do that? You threw some chocolates into the public arena, basically to keep them out of your own hands.

Jill: I did.

Kate: Well, that is one way to deal with it. I'll take them home and hide them, I think. It's not a big box of chocolates, but you know. Super cheap. What can you do? It leapt into my bag, how can you say no? Plus I walked all the way to the supermarket, so there has to be some compensation.

Jill: See, you walked off any of the calories that you're going to take in from that box of chocolates. Well, not really, but-yeah, and going back to me leaving my chocolates in the public domain, I noticed that they did only last for about two minutes there, so it seems that we have quite a few chocolate lovers in this office. I know I happen to be one of the biggest ones, but there definitely would be no shortage of helpers, if you wanted to bring them here.

Kate: In this office, an open box of chocolates in a public space, it's something like throwing a bleeding cow into-or a steak-into a pool of piranhas. It's the same sort of feeding frenzy. I've never been down to the Vancouver Aquarium at shark-feeding time. I'm afraid it would give me nightmares, but I imagine the same sort of thing. You know, the frenzy starts slowly, but increases very quickly until there's nothing left.


Jill and Kate Chat about Chocolate Джилл и Кейт болтают о шоколаде

Kate: Unfortunately, the other thing that I have always known is a really great bargain after Christmas is all those Christmas chocolates and candies. Кейт: К сожалению, еще одна вещь, о которой я всегда знала, — это очень выгодная сделка после Рождества — все эти рождественские шоколадки и конфеты. That’s the terrible thing. Это ужасно. I went to the supermarket today to get bananas. Сегодня я пошел в супермаркет, чтобы купить бананы. What did I end up with? 結局何になったの? Bananas and a box of chocolates! Oops! But it was such a deal, I thought, "Oh," you know, "if we need just one chocolate or we need to give a box of chocolates to someone, it’s a perfect hostess gift." 「ああ」と思ったのですが、「たった1つのチョコレートが必要な場合、または誰かにチョコレートの箱を渡す必要がある場合、それは完璧なホステスギフトです。」 So we’ll just see how long that lasts unopened. そのため、それが未開封でどれだけ続くかを確認します。

Jill: Or if you want to bring those boxes of chocolates or that box of chocolates to work, you can always do that, and I’m sure we can take care of it for you. We won’t have a problem helping you eat all those chocolates.

Kate: Well, that’s it. There are certainly some people in this office who would have no problem at all dealing with that. Didn’t you do that? You threw some chocolates into the public arena, basically to keep them out of your own hands. 基本的に自分の手に渡らないようにするために、チョコレートを公共の場に投げました。

Jill: I did.

Kate: Well, that is one way to deal with it. I’ll take them home and hide them, I think. It’s not a big box of chocolates, but you know. Super cheap. What can you do? It leapt into my bag, how can you say no? Plus I walked all the way to the supermarket, so there has to be some compensation.

Jill: See, you walked off any of the calories that you’re going to take in from that box of chocolates. Well, not really, but-yeah, and going back to me leaving my chocolates in the public domain, I noticed that they did only last for about two minutes there, so it seems that we have quite a few chocolate lovers in this office. ええと、そうではありませんが、ええ、私のチョコレートをパブリックドメインのままにしておくと、チョコレートが2分ほどしか続かないことに気づきました。そのため、このオフィスにはかなりの数のチョコレート愛好家がいるようです。 Ну, не зовсім, але-так, і повертаючись до того, як я залишив свої шоколадні цукерки у відкритому доступі, я помітив, що вони там тривали лише близько двох хвилин, тож, здається, у нас є чимало любителів шоколаду в цьому офісі. I know I happen to be one of the biggest ones, but there definitely would be no shortage of helpers, if you wanted to bring them here. Я знаю, що я один із найбільших, але помічників точно не бракувало б, якби ви хотіли привести їх сюди.

Kate: In this office, an open box of chocolates in a public space, it’s something like throwing a bleeding cow into-or a steak-into a pool of piranhas. Kate: In diesem Büro, einer offenen Pralinenschachtel in einem öffentlichen Raum, ist es so, als würde man eine blutende Kuh in – oder ein Steak – in einen Pool voller Piranhas werfen. ケイト:このオフィスでは、公共の場にあるチョコレートのオープンボックスで、出血している牛をピラニアのプールに投げ込むようなものです。 Кейт: У цьому офісі, відкрита коробка цукерок у громадському місці, це щось на кшталт того, як кинути корову, що стікає кров’ю, або стейк у басейн з піраньями. It’s the same sort of feeding frenzy. I’ve never been down to the Vancouver Aquarium at shark-feeding time. Я ніколи не був у Ванкуверському акваріумі під час годування акул. I’m afraid it would give me nightmares, but I imagine the same sort of thing. You know, the frenzy starts slowly, but increases very quickly until there’s nothing left. ご存知のように、狂乱はゆっくりと始まりますが、何も残らなくなるまで非常に急速に増加します。
