これって英語で何て言う?

偶数週は、東京在住の日米夫婦・健一とレイチェルが主人公。「これ英語で何て言うのかな?」を考えます

「ひどく腹ぺこだ」 could eat a horse

(Rachel and Kenichi have been shopping and walking around for several hours)

Rachel: Oh, I just realized my blood sugar level has dropped.

Kenichi: Well, it's almost 3 p.m. and you haven't eaten since breakfast.

Rachel: I need to eat something. I'm getting all jittery. I feel like I could eat a horse. But not literally. You know I don't like "basashi."

Kenichi: What do you want to eat?

Rachel:
I'm down for whatever. Just not horse meat. What about you?

Kenichi: I'm open to anything you want. You're the hungry one. You choose.

Rachel: Aren't you hungry, too?

Kenichi: A little bit. But I had "taiyaki" while I was waiting for you outside the shoe store. I asked if you wanted one, but you didn't.

Rachel: Well, can you just decide on a place for us to eat, please? I'm feeling really weak.

Kenichi: What do you feel like?

Rachel: I'm telling you, I'm fine with whatever. Kenichi, just decide. I want to sit somewhere warm and eat. That's all. I hate it when you're indecisive.

Kenichi: That's not fair. You're being indecisive, too. Why don't I get you a soda from the vending machine to raise your blood sugar, because you're obviously hangry. Then we can calmly discuss where to eat.
