Lesson 12 Bob's Big Cookie Order

鲍勃的饼干大订单

The family is gathered around the dinner table. Bob tells them about his deal with the Village Market. He asked his kids for help baking the cookies.

一家人围在餐桌旁。鲍勃对他们宣布了他与“乡村市场”的交易。他请孩子们帮忙烤饼干。

Bob: I know I've been down in the dumps since I got fired, but things are looking up now. The Village Market wants to sell our cookies.

我知道自从我被解雇后,我就一蹶不振,但现在情况证字啊好转。“乡村市场”想售卖我们的饼干。

Nicole: That's great news, Dad!

爸爸,这真是个好消息!

Bob: We're going to have to bake like crazy over the weekend. They want 2,000 cookies by Monday.

我们整个周末都要拼命的烤饼干了!他们要在周一前拿到2000块饼干。

Nicole: Two thousand cookies in three days? Don't you think you've bitten off more than you can chew?

三天内烤2000块饼干?你不觉得你太高估了自己吗?

Ted: Yeah, you're going to be running around a chicken with its head cut off!

是啊,要手脚并用忙得团团转了。

Susan: Fortunately, there are four of us here. You kids will have to pitch in too.

还好,我们家有四口人。你们这些孩子也得出一份力。

Nicole: Sorry, but I can't. I have to finish Ted's chemistry homework and then I've got to get going on my election speech.

对不起,但我参加不了。我还得帮泰德搞定化学作业,然后我还得开始准备我的竞选演讲。

Bob: What's that about doing Ted's chemistry homework?

泰德的化学作业是怎么一回事?

Ted: Never mind! Amber will help out with the cookies instead of Nicole.

没事!安布尔会代替妮可来帮忙烤饼干的。

Susan: For heaven's sake, Nicole! It's like pulling teeth getting you to do any work around here.

我的天,妮可!要让你帮点忙可真是难如登天啊。
