I go to an exercise club a few times a week.
There is a woman who is 82 years old. She looks very younger. I asked her how she lives.

1. Radio exercises for about 5 minutes every morning.
2. Drink smoothie made from banana, apple, Japanese mustard spinach (小松菜), and parsley.
3. Eat pork and cabbage every day.
4. Take a nap in the afternoon.
5. Take a bath.

I thought that making smoothie using a mixer is easier than making juce using a juicer because washing the juicer is bothering for me. Also, I don't have to throw away the strained remains. So, I have made the smoothie added milk since I heard from her.
This morning, I didn't have any bananas, so, I made the smoothie without a banana. It was not sweet.
When my son drank up it, he said that no more smoothie from tomorrow.

実践ビジネス英語02/2019問題文

The Writers' Workshop 2月号問題文 「移民」の解説

Actually, it was the second time for Antonio to come to America.
He said that he came there illegally several years ago, but he had to go back to El Salvador because he was rejected his asylum request. He could stay in America only a few weeks. He said, "During those days, I had never felt in danger to myself. I realized that how safe America was." Of course, this means compared to El Salvador. Gangsters are rampant there, so, it is said that its security level is the worst in the world. Do you submit a petition to the government and wait for the recovery of the security? Or, do you run away from the country? The answer is obvious.
"When I think about my growing son, I can't wait in my country any longer. I'll do anything for him." Antonio looked fondly at his son, who was sitting beside his father and sipping soup quietly without a word.
What will Antonio do?
He said, "I'll have my son go to school in Virginia. In order to do that, I'll look for a job and work there. Trump? He doesn't seem to like illegal immigrants, but it's no use worrying about it."
This is absolutely true, but isn't he anxious about it?
He said, "Anxious? I'd be much more anxious when I'm in El Salvador. Say, America! Hope than anxiety." Antonio's eyes were shining.

I had composed this arrangement of Dracaena Sanderiana (ミリオンバンブー), Tulip (チューリップ), and Delphinium (スプレーデルフィニウム).

Which do you like more, the first arrangement or the second one?



I hate to go to a dentist, but I went there recently.
I found the dentist on the Internet, and I went there for the first time.
It was a good dentist as the reputations. The dental hygienist treated carefully. She took some pictures of my teeth as well as X‐rays. I was surprised to be taken a photo of my face, too.
She put a facemask which has a mouth hole on my face. It was also for the first time for me. I didn't like it because I couldn't see anything while being treated. It made me more scary.

The dental hygienist found my two cavities. They will be treated next week and later.
On that day, I got cleaned all my teeth. Actually, I don't like the cleaning because it's painful. However, it was Okay after all. I used my secret coping method. I had pinched my arm secretly under the blanket while cleaning. As I had mentioned before, it is said that you feel the most pain, and at the same time, you don't feel the other pains. So, I had pinched my arm stronger than what I felt painful on my teeth by cleaning. It worked!

I've been very afraid of being drilled on my tooth next week.

four teeth were broken

My father went out by himself.
After a while, he came home with two women.
According to them, he stumbled while he was walking and fell down. He hit his face, and it got covered in blood. Then, these kind women took him to his home.
After my brother came home from work at night, he told me that my father's four front teeth were broken.

I was very shocked to hear this. My father had already lost many of his own teeth before. His remaining four teeth were valuable for him. Now, he can't eat food well. Some food is spilled from his mouth. Teeth are very important for elderly people to keep healthy.
My brother took him to the dentist today. I haven't heard about him. I'm worried that those his broken teeth would be pulled out, and artificial tooth would replace.

My father didn't have a cane at that time. I told him he must have a cane whenever he goes out. He forgets it soon.

I had composed this arrangement of Forsythia (レンギョウ), Rose (バラ), and Dracaena (ドラセナコンパクタ).



As I had mentioned before, my son is not good at math.
I've been afraid that he wouldn't pass the coming exam because of his poor math ability.

The day before when I was supporsed to meet a friend of mine, my son had asked me about a problem of math. However, I couldn't teach him it. Since she used to teach all subjects to some high school students before, I brought the paper of the math to ask her.
After teaching me, she told me her math story.

When she was a high school student, she was not good at math. One day, it took no less than four hours for her to solve only one problem. At that time, she was very pleased to solve it by herself. Since then, her math mark had improved from 3 out of 5 to 5.

My son doesn't like to think for a long time to solve a problem. I told him about her wonderful math story.
