Dinosaurs are animals that have been extinct for about 65 million years. Until now scientists didn’t know what colour they were. Recently some reddish-orange colour was discovered in the 125-million-year-old tail of a small Chinese dinosaur.
And that was Stick News for Friday the 29th of January. Kia ora.
Sarah Yeah, the final was yesterday so we went out and watched it. 昨日、決勝だったので見に行きました。
Mary How was it? どうでしたか？
Sarah It was really good. I really enjoyed it. Except for the last part. とても良かったし楽しめました。最後の部分を除いて。
Mary What happened? 何かあったんですか？
Sarah Well, the prize giving was supposed to start at 2. And so everyone was standing around on the concrete waiting for it to start and it was really hot. And then an hour later, someone came out and said it was going to start at 3:30. ２時に表彰式が始まる予定でしたので、それを見るため多くの人が猛暑の中をコンクリートの上で待っていました。１時間後の３時に関係者から３時半から始まるとのアナウンスがありました。
Mary Really? Why?! 本当に？なぜ？
Sarah I don’t know. They just said that the drug tests were still happening.
Mary So there was a problem with the tests? 誰かドーピング検査で引っかかったということですか？
Sarah Yeah, maybe, I guess so. So, yeah, we decided to keep waiting cause we thought, “Oh, we’ve already waited an hour, we might as well wait another half hour.” And then, we waited until 3:30 and the guy came back and said, “Oh, sorry, it’s going to start at 4:30.” そうかも知れません。で私たちはすでに１時間も待ったんだからあと３０分くらい待とう、と思い待つことにしました。３時半になるとさっきと同じ関係者から「申し訳ございませんが４時半から開始します」とアナウンスがありました。
Mary Did it ever start? で始まったんですか？
Sarah I don’t know. We gave up and went home … I was so exhausted. 分かりません。疲れ果てていたので私たちは諦めて帰りました。
