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

「ちゃら」 wash

(At a restaurant)

Rachel: That dinner was delicious. Especially the chocolate cake we shared for dessert. Ummm.

Kenichi: I hate to bother you, but I think it's about that time.

Rachel: Are the waiters giving us dirty looks?

Kenichi: No, but it's already 11 p.m.

Rachel: "Janken," then?

Kenichi: Yes.

Kenichi & Rachel: "Janken pon."

Rachel: Nooo! You've won two dinner dates in a row now.

Kenichi: But I lost three times in a row before that. Since we started this janken game in January for who pays for our dinner dates, I think you've been winning overall.

Rachel: Wait, let me look at my notes. I have all our dinner checks written down and tallied.

Kenichi: Rachel, I think you should pay the bill for tonight, first.

Rachel: Oh, yeah. "Okaikei onegaishimasu!" (Looking at the notes on her phone) Actually, it's pretty much been a wash so far.

Kenichi: What does that mean?

Rachel: We've paid almost equal amounts of money for our dinner dates since January.

Kenichi: (Shrugging) I guess my janken skills have improved since my elementary school days.

Rachel: Or we just happen to be eating at cheaper places when you lose.
