"Why don't you ever take me out to dinner?" Ginger screamed. "All my girlfriends go out to dinner with their boyfriends at least once a week. They go to nice restaurants and they have a good time. Then they call me up the next day and brag about what a nice time they had. They make me sick! And so do you, you cheapskate!"

This was not the first time she had had this conversation with Barney. He replied, "How many times have I told you that I don't trust restaurant food? All you have to do is watch these specials on TV news occasionally to see what's going on in the kitchen. When you see how the cooks don't wash after using the bathroom, how they sweat into your food while it's cooking, how they touch every bite of your food with their hands--and who knows what else you DON'T see--then you'd agree with me."

"You exaggerate," she yelled. "Not all restaurants are like that—only a few!" He told her that even a few was one too many for him.

"Well, one more week without going to a restaurant is going to be one too many for me, buster," she warned. "Lester takes Heidi out three times a week. She has the life." Okay, okay, Barney surrendered. He promised to take her out that Friday night to the best sushi place in town.

The next evening Ginger's best friend called. "Did you hear about Heidi? She almost died!" she wailed. Heidi was still in the hospital. She had been taken to the emergency room that morning because of the bad scallops she had eaten at the most exclusive restaurant in Pasadena the night before.

Ai đã gọi món sò?

"Tại sao anh chưa bao giờ dẫn em ra ngoài ăn tối?" Ginger hét lên. "Mọi bạn gái của em đi ra ngoài ăn tối với bạn trai của họ ít nhất một lần một tuần. Họ đi tới những nhà hàng đẹp và họ có khoảng thời gian tuyệt vời. Rồi ngày hôm sau họ gọi cho em và khoe về khoảng thời gian tuyệt vời mà họ đã có. Họ làm em phát ốm! Và anh cũng vậy, anh là đồ bần tiện!"

Đây không phải là lần đầu tiên cô có đoạn hội thoại này với Barney. Anh ta trả lời, "Anh đã nói với em bao nhiêu lần là anh không tin tưởng thức ăn ở nhà hàng? Mọi việc em phải làm là thỉnh thoảng coi những chương trình trên TV để coi chuyện gì đang diễn ra trong nhà bếp. Khi em thấy những đầu bếp không rửa tay sau khi đi vệ sinh, họ đổ mồ hôi vào thức ăn khi đang nấu, họ chạm vào mỗi miếng thức ăn của em bằng tay--và ai biết được còn chuyện gì nữa mà em không thấy--rồi em sẽ đồng ý với anh."

"Anh thổi phồng quá," cô hét lên. "Không phải tất cả mọi nhà hàng đều như vậy- chỉ một số ít thôi!" Anh ta nói cới rằng với anh một ít cũng đã là qua nhiều.

"Được rồi, một tuần nữa mà không đi ăn một bữa thịnh soạn thì cũng là qua nhiều với em đó," cô báo trước. "Lester dẫn Heidi ra ngoài ăn ba lần một tuần. Cô ấy đầy sức sống." Được rồi, được rồi, Barney chịu thua. Anh ta hứa sẽ dẫn cô đi ăn sushi vào tối thứ sáu đó tại cửa hàng tuyệt nhất thị trấn.

Chiều mai bạn thân nhất của Ginger gọi cho cô. "Bạn đã nghe tin gì về Heidi chưa? Cô ấy gần chết rồi!" cô ta khóc thét lên. Heidi vẫn đang ở trong bệnh viện. Cô ấy đã được chuyển tới phòng cấp cứu sáng hôm đó bởi vì món sò hư mà cô ấy ăn tại cửa hàng sang trọng nhất ở Pasadena tối qua.

"Tại sao anh không bao giờ dẫn em ra ngoài ăn tối? Ginger hét lên. "Mấy cô bạn của em ra ngoài ăn tối với bạn trai ít nhất một lần mỗi tuần. Bọn họ đến những nhà hàng dễ thương và có những khoảnh khắc tuyệt vời. Rồi ngày sau đó họ gọi điện thoại cho em, khoe khoang khoảng thời gian thi vị đã trãi qua. Họ làm em phát ốm!

Đây không phải lần đầu tiên cô có cuộc nói chuyện như thế này với Barney. Anh trả lời, "Đã bao nhiêu lần anh nói với em là anh không tin tưởng thức ăn ở nhà hàng?

"Anh phóng đại thêm thì có," cô đáp trả. "Không phải tất cả các nhà hàng đều như thế-chỉ một số ít thôi!" Anh bảo với cô rằng chỉ một ít thôi là đã quá nhiều đối với anh rồi.

"Được thôi, thêm một tuần nữa mà không đi nhà hàng là đã quá nhiều đối với em, một bữa tiệc linh đình đấy. Cô báo trước. "Lester dẫn Heidi ra ngoài ba lần mỗi tuần. Cô ấy thật biết sống." Được rồi, được rồi, Barney nhượng bộ. Anh hứa tối thứ sáu dẫn cô tới nơi có món su-si ngon nhất trong thành phố.

Chiều hôm sau cô bạn thân nhất của Ginger gọi điện đến. "Cậu đã nghe gì về Heidi chưa? Cô ấy sắp chết rồi!" Cô ta gào khóc. Cô ấy vẫn còn ở trong bệnh viện. Cô ấy được mang vào phòng cấp cứu sáng nay vì đã ăn những con sò điệp bị hư tại một nhà hàng đặc biệt ở Pasadena vào đêm hôm qua.

"Why don't you ever take me out to dinner?" Ginger screamed. "All my girlfriends go out to dinner with their boyfriends at least once a week. They go to nice restaurants and they have a good time. Then they call me up the next day and brag about what a nice time they had. They make me sick! And so do you, you cheapskate!"

“Tại sao chẳng bao giờ anh đưa em ra ngoài ăn tối vậy hả?” Ginger hét lên.” Những người bạn của em đều ra ngoài ăn tối với bạn trai vào cuối tuần ít nhất cũng được một lần. Tối họ đến nhà hàng và có thời gian bên nhau rất lãng mạn, Sau đó qua ngày hôm sau họ gọi cho em và khoe khoang kể về những thời gian bên nhau của họ. Họ làm em phát ốm !

This was not the first time she had had this conversation with Barney. He replied, "How many times have I told you that I don't trust restaurant food?

When you see how the cooks don't wash after using the bathroom, how they sweat into your food while it's cooking, how they touch every bite of your food with their hands--and who knows what else you DON'T see--then you'd agree with me."

Đây không phải là lần đầu tiên cô nói chuyện với Barney. Anh trả lời, bao nhiêu lần anh đã nói với em rằng anh không tin tưởng thức ăn ở nhà hàng? Tất cả những gì em cần làm là hãy xem tin tức trên truyền hình thỉnh thoảng điều gì xảy ra trong nhà bếp. Khi anh nhìn thấy các đầu bếp không rửa tay sau khi đi vệ sinh, mồ hôi họ nhiễu vào thức ăn trong lúc đang nấu nướng, họ dùng tay bóc thức ăn của khách và còn những gì khác nữa mà ta không nhìn thấy , rồi em sẽ đồng ý với anh.”

"You exaggerate," she yelled. "Not all restaurants are like that—only a few!" He told her that even a few was one too many for him.

“ Anh phóng đại cho cố vào “ cô hét, “ Đâu phải nhà hàng nào cũng vậy, chỉ có một số ít như thế thôi! Anh nói với em rằng thậm chí một số ít như thế cũng là quá nhiều đối với Anh.

"Well, one more week without going to a restaurant is going to be one too many for me, buster," she warned. "Lester takes Heidi out three times a week. She has the life." Okay, okay, Barney surrendered. He promised to take her out that Friday night to the best sushi place in town.

Được rồi, một tuần nữa mà không đi nhà hàng ăn một bữa ngon lành thì đó cũng là quá nhiều với em rồi hén”. Cô cảnh báo.” Lester dẫn Heidi ra ngoài ăn ba lần trong tuần. Cô ấy thật biết cách sống .” được rồi, được rồi Barney pó tay luôn. Anh hứa với em tối thứ sáu anh sẽ đưa em đi ăn sushi ngon nhất ở thị trấn.

The next evening Ginger's best friend called. "Did you hear about Heidi? She almost died!" she wailed. Heidi was still in the hospital. She had been taken to the emergency room that morning because of the bad scallops she had eaten at the most exclusive restaurant in Pasadena the night before.

Tối hôm sau bạn thân của Ginger gọi, Cậu có nghe tin gì về Heidi chưa? Cô ấy sắp chết rồi“ Cô hốt hoảng thét lên. Heidi vẩn còn trong bệnh viện. Cô đã được đưa vào phòng cấp cứu sáng nay bởi vì cô đã ăn nhầm con sò điệp ươn cô ăn ở nhà hàng sang trọng nhất tại Pasadena vào tối hôm qua đấy.

This was not the first time she had had this conversation with Barney. He replied, “How many times have I told you that I don’t trust restaurant food? All you have to do is watch these specials on TV news occasionally to see what’s going on in the kitchen. When you see how the cooks don’t wash after using the bathroom, how they sweat into your food while it’s cooking, how they touch every bite of your food with their hands--and who knows what else you DON’T see--then you ’d agree with me.”

“You exaggerate,” she yelled. “Not all restaurants are like that—only a few!” He told her that even a few was one too many for him.

“Well, one more week without going to a restaurant is going to be one too many for me, buster,” she warned. “Lester takes Heidi out three times a week. She has the life.” Okay, okay, Barney surrendered. He promised to take her out that Friday night to the best sushi place in town

The next evening Ginger’s best friend called. “Did you hear about Heidi? She almost died!” she wailed. Heidi was still in the hospital. She had been taken to the emergency room that morning because of the bad scallops she had eaten at the most exclusive restaurant in Pasadena the night before.
