「今週のフレーズ」 catch up with ~

(Anne, Saori and Sean are talking)

Anne: Have you guys gone to your physical?

Saori: I'll go this afternoon.

Anne: I was thinking of going this afternoon, too.

Sean: I went yesterday.

Anne: I don't mean to be nosy, but how did the blood draw go?

Sean: I almost passed out. I just can't deal with blood.

Anne: (Jokingly) You're a big, fat wimp, Sean.

Sean: You're not far off, actually. Not only am I a wimp, I am also at risk of metabolic syndrome.

Anne: Really? Do you have high blood pressure?

Sean: No, it's my waist circumference. It's bigger than whatever it's supposed to be.

Saori: You don't have a big waist.

Sean: Well, I'm 6-feet tall, so my length probably distracts from my width. You know the bread that's shaped like a hot dog bun but has a really sweet cream where a sausage should be?

Anne: Yeah.

Sean: I think my habit of eating that as a mid-morning snack and a late-night snack has caught up with me. What started out as a guilty pleasure I'd allow myself once in a while has become a daily routine.
