すーちゃん~6

My reading notes for the 6th story of すーちゃん, p.39 to 45.

Suchan’s mother asks “彼氏はおらんの?” I guess that she is asking her daughter whether she has a boyfriend or not but I don’t understand the structure. Same for Suchan’s answer, she says that whether she has a boyfriend or not, it has nothing to do with her mother (her mother should not be sticking her nose into it).

  • だもん I found だもんで which means “because of that”
  • きっかけ chance, occasion
  • 早番・はやばん early shift
  • 遅番・おそばん late shift
  • 親密・しんみつ intimacy, friendship
  • ビミョー・微妙・びみょう delicate, difficult, complicated
  • 終わってゆくんだ・おわってゆくんだ is ゆく used instead of いく?
  • ネコババ pocketing, misappropriation, stealing.

I remember that Suchan evokes Bridget Jones when she starts her diary. Well, that’s how she should seduce manager Nakata! 😉


Expressions worth remembering

If I remember only one thing from this chapter, let it be ネコババ!
