エンジョイシンプルイングリッシュ 6/7 ツケまつ毛/False Eyelashes
Excuse me, are you the theater reporter from the spotlight magazine?
My name is Matsushima.
I’m sorry to keep you waiting, Matsushima-san.
I’m Reika Sakurakouji from Shibuya Opera Company.
Oh, you’re Sakurakouji-san.
Thank you for letting me interview you today.
It’s my pleasure.
I’m always happy to talk about our Opera Company.
Umm, I don’t want to be impolite but you look very different when you are on the stage.
What is different?
Well, umm, you look normal now.
Everyone says that.
This stage is a dream world.
So we wear big colorful costumes and,,.
And wear lots of makeup.
Some people are watching from far away and we want them to understand our feelings.
Makeup helps with that.
Your eyes look so big on stage.
Are you sad they are not really big?
I didn’t mean,,.
Even my mother says that.
But I like your eyes right now, too.
They are beautiful.
I want girlfriends with eyes like yours.
Oh, thank you.
Can you forget I said that?
By the way, I wear two sets of false eyelashes when I’m on the stage.
I put them on top of each other.
If you wear two sets, it makes small eyes look much bigger.
The eyelashes make sounds each time I open and close my eyes.
They sound like bird wings.
Do you want to try them?
Yes, close your eyes and I’ll put them on for you.
This is so cool.
My sister and my mother are big fans of your opera company.
They will be excited to hear Sakurakoji-san put false eyelashes on my eyes.
Can I send them a picture?
Don’t move, Matsushima-san.
The glue will dry soon.
And now, you can move.
I’ll take you a picture now.
This feels different.
There are butterflies on my eyes.
I can’t believe you can sing and dance with these eyelashes.
I use them all the time so it’s not a problem for me now.
But I can’t hear the swish sound.
It was a joke.
Oh , I believed you.
Hello, can I take your order?
We forgot to choose our drinks.
Sakurakouji-san, what will you have?
I’ll have an orange juice.
OK, so we will have one orange juice and one coffee, please.
Oops, I forgot to take off the eyelashes!
