Dialogue 1
Mark: Sorry I'm late. I missed the subway at the platform. It was just pulling away. So, I had to wait another five minutes for the next one. Then, when I got into this building, the elevator stopped at almost every floor on the way up here.
马克:不好意思我迟到了。站台上的地铁刚开走了,我错过了,所以还得再等五分钟才有下一班。然后,我进这栋楼时,电梯几乎每一层楼都停。
Jingjing: It's actually fortunate. I needed an extra few minutes to finish up some work. Actually, would you mind waiting another five minutes or so?
京晶:这其实是幸运的。我还需要几分钟来完成一些工作。你介意再等五分钟左右吗?
Mark: That's fine. It'll give me a chance to catch my breath.
马克:可以没关系。这也让我有机会喘口气。
Jingjing: Great. Say, what's that on your shoulder?
京晶:太好了,那个,你肩上的是什么?
Mark: What? Eww! A bird must have dropped that on me as I was walking. It's dried already. But I'll have to excuse myself for a few minutes and change shirts.
马克:什么?天哪!肯定是在我走路的时候有只鸟拉在我身上了。它都干了,不好意思我需要几分钟去换衬衫。
Jingjing: You have an extra shirt with you? That's fortunate too.
京晶:你还随身带着额外的衬衫?那也是够幸运的。
Mark: Yeah, I guess so. I'll be right back.
马克:嗯,我想是的吧。马上回来。
Jingjing: All ready to go now?
京晶:准备好走了吗?
Mark: Yeah. Did you finish your work?
马克:好了。你完成了工作了?
Jingjing: Just now. Let's go to lunch.
京晶:刚弄完。我们去吃午饭吧。
Mark: Great. I'm super hungry.
马克:太好了,我超级饿。
Jingjing: Me too. Have you watched any of the World Cup?
京晶:我也是。你看世界杯了吗?
Mark: Yeah, I went with a friend to an outdoor barbecue place to watch the Russia-Spain game. I bet on Spain and ended up having to pay for the food and beer because Spain lost on penalties. And then my friend's friend showed up and I had to buy another round of beers and more food.
马克:看啦,我和一位朋友一起去户外烧烤场看俄罗斯对西班牙的比赛了。我赌西班牙赢,结果不得不付了食品和啤酒的钱,因为西班牙在点球的时候输了。然后我的朋友的朋友来了,我还得再买一轮啤酒和更多吃的。
Jingjing: Haha. And the friendly bet you and I made last week isn't looking too good for you.
京晶:哈哈。你和我上周打的“友好赌”看上去对你也不太有利啊。
Mark: Oh, that too! Well, I don't mind that so much.
马克:哦,那个也是!算了,我也不那么介意了。
Jingjing: Well, it seems you're having a run of bad luck.
京晶:嗯,看来你正经历一连串的厄运啊。
Mark: Let's hope it'll turn around.
马克:让我们希望会有好转吧。

Jingjing: Mark, what's your philosophy about luck?
京晶:马克,你对运气这种事的理念是什么?
Mark: I usually have good luck.

Jingjing: Just not today, right?
京晶:只是不是今天,对吗?
Mark: I don't want to say too much about my own luck. That might jinx it.
