Lydia 가 Bob에게 “Hey Bob, Ever since you opened your coffee shop이봐 Bob, coffee shop을 열고서 "you have been very busy. 정말 바빠진 것 같네”라고 얘기하고 있습니다. Coffee shop은 음악을 들으면서 주로 Coffee나 음료를 마시고 간단한 식사를 할수있는 곳이죠. 친구들과 만나서 커피 마시며 얘기하기에 아주 좋습니다. 그러면서 “Is the business going well and making money? 장사는 잘 되니? 돈도 많이 벌어?”라고 묻고 있어요. Bob은 기분 좋게 “Yeah! I can’t believe it. 그래 정말 믿을 수 없을 정도야. It’s going really well. 정말 잘 되고 있어”라고 대답합니다. 또 Bob은 “In fact, my coffee shop has become a real cash cow for me. 사실, coffee shop이 황금알을 낳는 거위야” 라고 덧붙이더라고요.
