21. Invitation to Lunch 请吃午饭

A: Frances, do you know if the cafeteria around the corner's open today?
B: Yes. They were open this morning when I came to work. They must've finished remodeling. Why'd you want to know?
A: Well, I thought that maybe we could go there for lunch today. That is. If you haven't promised to go with someone else.
B: That'd be wonderful, Joe. But I hope you're in a better mood than you were this morning.
A: I'm sorry I was such a grouch. It must've been the weather. When it rains I get depressed.
B: Forget it. I'll see you at twelvethirty.

Notes
Remodel 重新装修(一般指商店的门面和内部装修)
Why'd you-why did you
In a better mood 情绪好一些

It must've been the weather 大概是天气的缘故

A:弗朗西斯,你知道街角上的自助餐厅今天开门营业吗?
B:是的,今天早上我来上班时看到它开着。他们大概已经装修好了。为什么你想知道?
A:嗯,我想我们今天可以去那儿吃午饭。就是说,如果你没答应别人去的话。
B:那太好了,乔。不过我希望你现在的情绪比早上要好一些。
A:很抱歉,我的脾气那么不好。大概是天气的缘故。每当下雨我就很沮丧。
B:忘掉这事吧。十二点半再见。

22. In the Cafeteria 在自助餐厅里

A: What'll you have,sir?
B: I don't know. What's good today?
A: Why not try the beef pot pie? That's the special today. Lots of people come in on Mondays just to get our beef pot pie. Or, how about the oyster stew?
B: No, I'm hungry. That wouldn't last me the afternoon. I guess I'll have a hot beef sandwich with plenty of gravy.
A: Do you want it on whole wheat, white french, or rye?
B: Make it whole wheat.
A: Anything to drink?
B: Yes, coffee, but I'll come back for it later.

A:你想用麸皮面包、法式面包还是黑面包做?
B:用麸皮面包。
A:喝点什么?
B:咖啡,不过我等一会儿再回来喝?
