Who will join us for dinner tonight?
Bob and Candy. I also invited Mary, but she is out of town.
鲍勃和凯蒂 。我也邀请了玛丽，但是她不在城里 。
What a pity! I was hoping she would come.
If I were you, I’d just walk to work. It would take you about 20 minutes. Riding a bike is a good choice, too.
如果我是你，我会步行去上班 。大约需要20分钟 。骑自行车也是一个不错的选择 。
I agree. But this week my husband is away on business, so I have to drive my kids to school before I go to work. I’m pressed for time, you know.
我同意 。但是这周我丈夫出差了，所以我必须在上班前开车送孩子上学 。你知道的，我的时间紧迫 。
It’s 8:30, Dave, and you’re going to be late for the meeting.
Oh, my! I just have half an hour left. I can’t believe I slept for 10 hours!
Hi, Helen. Where are you off to?
To the library. I’ve got a history paper due next week, and need to do some reading.
去图书馆 。我下周要交一篇历史论文，需要阅读一些材料 。
Thank goodness! You are still here.
I need your signature for this document. It’s urgent.
您需要在这份文件上签名 。这份文件十分紧急 。
