對話…… not out of the wood yet仍在樹林中(尚未走出困境)

1

Adam: We’ve had a really good week, you know.
Eve: Well it’s certainly better than when we started.
Adam: Do you think we’ll be able to have a holiday this year? Just for a few days?
Eve: Well, I’m not sure. We are beginning to do well, but I don’t think we can afford to close down at the moment, not even for a few days.
Adam: Oh.
Eve: Our company is still in debt you know. We ought to try and pay off the bank loan as soon as we can.
Adam: I suppose you’re right.
Eve: And there’s the money your father lent us. I know business is going well, but we’re not out of the wood yet.
Adam: That’s right, we’re still in the red.
亞當:妳知道嗎?我們這一周真的做得很不錯。
伊芙:嗯,那肯定比我們剛開始時更好。
亞當:妳覺得今年我們能度假嗎? 幾天也好?
伊芙:嗯,我不確定。我們剛開始做得上軌道,但我認為我們現在不能停下來,就算幾天也不行。
亞當:哦。
伊芙:你知道,我們的公司還負債。 我們應該盡快償還銀行貸款。
亞當:我想你是對的。
伊芙:還有你父親借給我們的錢。我知道生意進展順利,但我們還沒有走出困境。
亞當:沒錯。我們還是有赤字。
