I was supposed to have lunch with my English fellows today, but now I'm alone at home feeling sorry for ending up 1) being absent
One of the members of our English club has found a full-time job, and she mentioned that the job would make her busy, juggling both work and motherhood. I'd missed the English club for whole a month due to some field trips of my son's school, so I really looked forward to meeting my friends and chatting over lunch with them.
Well, then, inspite of all my expectation, how come
the chance to see my friends?
What inpeded me was nasty centipedes
I moved into my place this spring with my family. The
complex apartment buildings apartment complex
which we live in were supposedly built over 30 years ago. I had no grievance until I met them: centipedes. While living here, I've come across three of them in my bed room and living room, and the one that
poped up in my bed room was so big that I took it as a moving thick pipe!
Instead of having delicious lunch and bubbly conversation, I'm waiting for a call from a company to eliminate harmful and 2) eerie
1) missing out ... Sounds more natural. とのことでした。miss out = 参加できない
なぜ eerie でなく creepy がいいのか。
いつも添削してくれるキャサリンが、こんな風に説明してくれました。 * eerie is usually used for things that are supernatural (ghosts etc).
