저는 Mike에게 “So do you know who will be attending the conference next week? 다음 주 회의에 누가 참여하는지 알아? I need the final roster by tomorrow. 내일까지 최종 명단이 필요해”라고 말하자, Mike은 “Well, we’re still waiting for Rachel to get back to us. 글쎄, 레이첼이 다시 돌아오기만 기다리고 있어. She doesn’t know what she plans to do yet. 레이첼은 아직 무엇을 해야 할지 모르거든.”이라고 말하고 있네요. 그러자 저는 “But I thought you all had made a decision together last week. 지난주에 같이 결정하지 않았어?”라고 물었고, Mike은 “No, not really. Things were kind of up in the air when we last talked. 아니야 그렇지 않아. 회의는 했지만, 그때 확실히 정한 것은 없었어 I’ll call her today to confirm and I’ll email you. 오늘 레이첼한테 전화해서 뭘 할지 확인하고 너한테 다시 전자메일 보내줄게.”라고 답하고 있어요. 그러자 제가 “Awesome! I appreciate it! 고마워!”라고 했죠.

Up in the air 는 아직 정해지지 않은, 불확실한 이라는 뜻인데요, 어떤 일이 마치 공중에 떠 있는 것처럼 불확실한 상태라는 걸 나타내는 것입니다. 예를 한번 들어볼까요? 파티를 앞두고 친구에게 초대장을 보냈는데 아직 정확한 답변을 주지 않으면 친구에게 ‘Your response to our party is up in the air’이라고 말할 수 있습니다. Let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.
