Jen: You sound horrible! You need go home and get some rest.

Jason: Oh, I wish but I have a big deadline I need to meet. So I’m going to just suck it up and deal with it.

Jen: Aw, that’s too bad.

Jason 이 기침을 하자 제가 “You sound horrible! You need go home and get some rest. 어휴, 너 목소리가 영 안 좋구나. 집에 가서 푹 쉬어야겠는데.”라고 했습니다. Jason이 “Oh, I wish but I have a big deadline I need to meet. 나도 그랬으면 좋겠는데 마감 시간에 맞춰줘야 할 일이 있어서 갈 수가 없어.
