Errrr..... I need to make a cup of coffee. Do you need one,
babe? (Annie is walking toward Wayne)
Yes, please. You look so lethargic, honey. When did you go
to bed last night?
Don't know actually, pretty late though. Or pretty early
this morning, I should say. So I really need a cup of wake-me-up.
I love the first sip of
morning coffee. It always boosts me
and gets me back onto the track straight away.
It's really like a fix.
Like a fix. What an expression. You remind me of some translation
assignments about drinking coffee, which I did a couple of
Sounds pretty like a daily life issue.
Yeah, they could be very useful for general folks if
they were put in plain language.
Ha, yeah, those big words are really un-friendly. Especially
words of medicine, like the one we saw on a pamphlet talking
about heart disease, athero... athero...
Yeah, yeah, atherosclerosis. Just learning how to say
this word can make me get heart attack.
Don't exaggerate. It's not that hard.
Anyway, it's better not to get that wicked illness.
(Wayne is handing the coffee
to Annie)....Ok, there you go; your cafe latte. So what
are those assignments talking about exactly?
Ta... Well, I remember
a paper said a new study has found that coffee can reduce
the risk of developing liver cirrhosis,
but the scientists are not sure if that is because of caffeine.
So, it means that alcohol junkies can just keep going on
getting liquored up for as long as they want.
Are you talking about yourself?
No, not me, of course! I can't afford those pretty liquors.
You know that.
Yeah, you bet. Don't forget you've got problems with your
heart, though it's just a minor one.
Most people know that drinking too much alcohol is gonna
cause cardiovascular problems.
But you know what. Too much coffee may cause the same problem
Yeah, that's what I read in one of my translation assignments.
Remember that, one time in a delicatessen,
after you gulped down two large
cups of coffee, you felt your chest
tight and noticed your
hands trembling for no reason.
I think, probably, that's because you didn't sleep well the
night before, and then consumed such
a large amount of coffee.
So the coffee could be the cause. I thought I was just
nervous of being with you because at that time, we just met
a week ago.
I don't know if the coffee was to blame. But that's a good
try to flatter me.
But you don't buy it, do you.
Well... you never know!
