Who Are You Gonna Vote For?

Pénteki történetünk arról szólt, mi lesz (is going to be = is gonna be) a választás napján (on election day). A mi listánkon persze olyan pártnevek szerepeltek, mint Cats, Dogs, Foxes, Spiders, Monkeys, Snakes, Horses, Sheep etc. A történetből megtudjuk, hogy Adrien (egy n-nel) hogyan indul családjával szavazni, és hogyan elegyednek szóba a piros lámpánál előbb a Knight Riderből ismert KITT-tel (akit Gábor jelenített meg), majd társaságunk másik Adriennjével (két nn-nel). A kérdés persze mindig az, hogy Kire fogsz szavazni? = Who are you going to vote for?

Az egész történetben a jövő idő leggyakoribb kifejezésmódját gyakoroljuk. I am going to do it = menőben vagyok megtenni = meg fogom tenni. I am going to be there = menőben vagyok ott lenni = ott leszek. Miért utalhat ez a jövőre? Mert ha menőben vagyok azaz úton vagyok valami felé, akkor az nyilván előttem van, a jövőben. Magyarul a jövőt "fogom" (amivel érdekes módon már meg is ragadtam), angolul viszont menőben vagyok (I am going) megtenni valamit (to do something) vagy lenni valahol (to be somewhere).

E kifejezés olyan gyakori, hogy a benne örökké egymás mellé kerülő going to szavak a gyors beszédben így hangzanak: gonna. Jó ha szokjuk, ezért történetünkben is többször hallható így. A felvétel az óra végén készült.

Election Day

On Sunday we are going to vote.

Adrien and her family are going to vote in Dunakeszi. They are going to have breakfast at 8 sharp but they are not going to talk politics at breakfast. They are going to drive to the library at 8:59.

They are going to get a red light. Laci always stops at the red light because he is a good driver.

The road is wide, so somebody else is going to stop next to them.

Who is it gonna be?

It’s gonna be KITT. KITT is gonna stop for the red light next to Laci and his family. Laci is not going to be very happy but Adrien is going to be very nice and she is going to ask a question. What is she going to ask?

Ah, no. KITT is going to ask a question. Ok. So KITT is going to ask what? What’s he gonna ask? “Who are you going to vote for?” What is Adrien going to say? She is going to say, “It’s a secret.” What is Laci going to say? “It’s a secret.” What is Vivien going to say? “It’s a secret.” So they are not going to tell him.

But I am going to tell you. The are going to vote for different parties. Adrien is gonna vote Ants. Laci is gonna vote Sheep, and Vivi is gonna vote Foxes. Vivi is going to vote for the first time in her life. She is nineteen. It’s [gonna be] a great day.

Who is KITT going to vote for?

Ah, KITT is going to vote for Monkeys.

And Laci is going to ask him why? Oh, Adrien is going to ask him why. But he is not going to have time to tell because the light is going to turn yellow.

At the next red light somebody else is going to stop next to them.

Who is it going to be? ADRIENN, it’s gonna be ADRIENN. It’s gonna be ADRIENN in a sports car. Somebody’s gonna be very happy. Who is it gonna be? Laci’s gonna be very happy. What is the question [gonna be]? Laci is going to ask, “Who are you gonna vote for?” “Horses.” ADRIENN is gonna say, “Horses!”

Laci is gonna tell ADRIENN everything. He is gonna tell her who he is gonna vote for, he is gonna tell her who his wife is gonna vote for, and he is gonna tell her who Vivi is gonna vote for. So ADRIENN is going to know everything.

The light is going to turn green, and they are gonna go to the library. And that is going to be the end. Or is it going to be a new beginning?

THE END
