English term or phrase:I want to keep them all straight.
Testo teatrale americano (per la messa in scena e non per la pubblicazione). Casa di riposo per anziani. Dialogo tra due ospiti maschi. Uno dei due ha un taccuino.
A: So, what’s your story? Retired?
B: Two years ago.
A: From what?
B: I was a dentist.
A: (He takes out a pen and writes in his pad.) Oh, a dentist. That’s a lucrative occupation.
B: What are you doing? You’re writing that down?
A: I’m meeting a lot of new people here. I want to keep them all straight.
La mia proposta:
A: (Tira fuori una penna e scrive sul taccuino) Oh, un dentista. Un lavoro redditizio.
B: Ma che fai? Lo stai scrivendo?
A: Sto conoscendo tante persone qui. Le voglio tenere tutte in ordine.
