「今週のフレーズ」 shake things up

(Anne, Sean and Saori are talking)

Anne: Any plans for the weekend, Sean?

Sean: Not really. This whole summer I've basically been shuttling between work and home during the week, and spending the weekends on my couch. It's too hot to do anything.

Anne: Come on, you need to shake things up a bit.

Saori: You're getting "manneri."

Sean: Oh! I learned just recently that the Japanese word "manneri" comes from "mannerism," which I don't think is an accurate translation of the English word.

Saori: Hey, do you want to go to Mount Takao with us tomorrow?

Sean: You're asking me to go mountain climbing in the scorching sun? I'd turn red as a tomato. No thanks.

Anne: Hold on. We're taking the cable car up to the mountain's 500-meter point in the evening, where they have a beer garden.

Saori: And they have an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Sean: Whaaat?!

Anne: And the temperature cools down in the evening. As long as the weather cooperates, it'll be really nice out there.

Sean: Count me in. I'm shaking things up!
