Lesson 17 Carol Tells Bob the Good News

卡罗尔告诉鲍勃好消息

Carol phones Bob to tell him the cookies are selling very well and that she needs another 1000 by the morning. Bob isn't sure he can make the cookies so quickly, but Carol insists.

卡罗尔打电话告诉鲍勃饼干卖得很好,明天早上她还需要1000块饼干。鲍勃不确定他是否能迅速做出这批饼干,但卡罗尔坚持要。

Carol: Bob, your wife's cookies are selling like hotcakes!

鲍勃,你妻子的饼干非常抢手。

Bob: How many did you sell, Carol?

你卖了多少了,卡罗尔。

Carol: We've sold out. I need more right away! Bring me another 1000 by tomorrow at 9 a.m.

我们卖完了。我马上就要订更多。明天早上九点,再给我送1000块饼干来。

Carol: Don't blow it, Bob! Susan's Scrumptious Cookies could really take off.
