Lesson 10 Bob Visits the Village Market

鲍勃参观乡村市场

Bob goes to the Village Market, a supermarket in town. He asks Carol, the owner of the store, if she would like to sell Susan's Scrumptious Cookies. Carol agrees, but isn't able to tell Bob how much she'll pay him.

鲍勃去了镇上的一家名为“乡村市场”的超市。他问店老板卡罗尔是否想售卖“苏珊的可口饼干”。卡罗尔同意了,但无法告诉鲍勃会支付给鲍勃多少钱。

Bob: Thank you for making time for me today, Carol.

谢谢你今天腾出时间来见我,卡罗尔。

Carol: Don't mention it, Bob. What's up?

不用客气,鲍勃。出什么事儿了?

Bob: My wife baked these cookies from scratch. Please take one.

我妻子亲手烤了这些饼干。尝一块吧。

Carol: Mmmm, chewy. These are out of this world!

嗯,有嚼劲儿。好吃得不得了。

Bob: My wife's a great cook.

我妻子很擅长烹饪。

Carol: You can say that again. I don't want to make a pig of myself, but let me take a few more.

没错。我虽不想把自己吃成猪(吃太多),但再来两块吧。

Bob: Oink oink! Just kidding!

嚎嚎!我开玩笑的。

Carol: I'd like to sell these at the Village Market. My customers will go nuts over these!

我愿意在“乡村市场”售卖这些饼干。我的顾客会非常喜欢这些饼干的。

Bob: How much would you pay us for each cookie?

那每块饼干你要付我们多少钱呢?

Carol: I'm not sure. I need to roll up my sleeves and figure out the finances.

我也不确定。我需要着手弄清楚财务状况。

Bob: Can you give me a ballpark figure now?

你现在能给我一个大概的数字吗?

Carol: I don't want to jump the gun. Sit tight for now, and we'll talk things over this evening.

我可不想草率行事。暂时耐心点,我们今晚再讨论。
