英語リスニング - 本文

Adrienne: So, Trina, Monday is Valentine's day. Are you excited?

Trina: No!

Adrienne: That was a pretty direct answer. Why are you not excited? It's a holiday.

Trina: It's a holiday for people that have other people.

Adrienne: So, you're not happy because you don't have other people?

Trina: I have other people. I have my sister and my mom and my dad and my friends, but Valentine's day is more of a holiday for people that have a boyfriend or a girlfriend, or a wife, or a husband, or children as opposed to being a single person with nobody to share it with.

Adrienne: But could you share it with your sister, or your mother, or your father?

Trina: I could. I could, and we do. We send each other gifts. We, well this year, I won't be with anybody, but I get to celebrate it with my sister this weekend.

Adrienne: Well, that sounds fun.

Trina: It is.

Adrienne: So what kinds of things have you done on Valentines day in the past?

Trina: Ah, gone out to dinner, gone to a movie, had dinner at my parents house, had dinner at my grandparent's house.

Adrienne: That's interesting. Why your grandparent's house?

Trina: It was their wedding anniversary.

Adrienne: Wow! That's a great day to have a wedding anniversary.

Trina: It is and it was a lot of fun. I got to spend some of their last few years together having dinner with them.

Adrienne: That sounds lovely. So are you looking forward to maybe having a Valentine next year?

Trina: Maybe! We'll, see.
