told myself not to do translations anymore but this is sooooooooooooooo insanely adorable and tumblr needs more chiyuu so… ;~;///
it’s a short snippet of from 今週の対談 talk being Mariko and Tomomi on 週刊AKB like 2 years ago? ._.
Tomo: I still use chiyuu when I talk to mama. Like when I’m going home, I’ll call and say chiyuu? And mama would say chiyuu.
Mariko: Your mother understands!? Really!?
Tomo: En. That means going home now.
Mariko: Chiyuu means going home!?
Tomo: About there. If say “Did you chiyuu?” that means “Did you eat?”
Tomo: And if the reply is chiyuu! It means yes, but if its chi~yu~u, it’s no.
Mariko: Intonation is difficult. I’ll never speak it.
At the start of the talking segment, they had this hilarious conversation:
Tomo: Tomo has a lot to ask…
Mariko: Such as?
Tomo: Casual clothes…
Tomo: And like, how to be taller? How to be slimmer?
Mariko: Taller? Eat noodles!
Tomo: Noodles?! Really?
Mariko: /serious face/ Really!
Tomo: Taller because you ate noodles?!
Mariko: When I was in high school, I had spaghetti, ramen, soba, so-men…and had noodles everyday.
Tomo: Noodles? So you got taller?
Mariko: All 3 meals were noodles. That’s when i had growth spurt. But you can’t just eat without doing some stretching sports.
Tomo: Like ballet?
Mariko: Yes yes yes! After having noodles and then doing such sports, I grew taller
Tomo: Really? NO~
Tomo: So I’ll have noodles before theater shows, then have it again after theater shows, and I can grow taller?
Mariko: I told Minami the same thing.
Mariko: If you want to be taller, you have noodles.
Mariko: But she didn’t do what I told her to.
Tomo: So maybe it’s real. So Tomo should start having noodles.
Mariko: If you trust me, you should try it.
…don’t do it Tomo :/
