You told me your name, but I forgot it.
It's Crystal.
I know, but I will forget it.
(music)
Justin, you go ahead.
Hi, I'm Justin.
Hi, Justin, nice to meet you!
My name is Miriam.
Hello.
Do you know how old I am?
Uh, 28?
Oh, 28, oh, I wish!
How old do you think I am?
Uh, 80?
Oh. (laughs)
From 28 to 80?
Sorry.
What do you do at home?
Well, I'm retired, but I used to be a lawyer.
About seven years ago,
I began to forget things.
I forget, like, everything.
You forget everything?
Oh, my.
I've got Alzheimer's, have you heard of Alzheimer's?
No.
Alzheimer's is a disease.
Is it contagious?
No.
Can you die from it?
Yes.
Oh.
Yes, what's happening in my brain
is that my brain cells are dying.
Do you know what genetics is?
It's like, it's your genes, you know,
and so, um, I forgot where I was going.
Genetics, I forgot what I was going to say.
Oh, what's that, it's that thing
that goes around eating things?
Oh, you mean Pac-Man?
Pac-Man, yes.
Well, there's a Pac-Man in my brain,
going around eating my brain.
Yeah!
And there's nothing right now that can stop it.
Maybe you could just create a ghost in your brain,
and then eat Pac-Man and go bye-bye,
and then the ghost goes away.
Sure, absolutely, why not?
Do you ever forget things?
When I put the remote down and go to get something,
when I come back in the room, I forgot where the remote was.
Have to search the entire room.
My dad is kinda like that, when my mom asks him
to do something, he doesn't do it.
Every single time, and he always says,
I forgot, I forgot, I forgot.
I forgot, I forgot, I forgot.
I forgot, I forgot, I forgot.
What else do you forget?
How old I am, sometimes I think I'm six.
I create a system.
I've got a Google calendar on my laptop,
and on my cell phone.
My calendar is basically substituting for my brain
because my brain isn't working.
Have you heard, you know what Alzheimer's is?
Yeah, you said that earlier.
Ah, yes.
It's okay.
It's okay.
You know, I'm 70 years old,
but I'm becoming... - Wait, you're old?
I'm, yeah, but I'm going to be becoming a baby
because I'm going to forget how to eat,
I'm going to forget how to do things.
A couple of days ago, I didn't know where I was.
It took like five minutes for me
to figure out where I was in my apartment.
What would you do if you got lost?
There's a trail right by our house.
- That trail could go anywhere, Justin. - No!
- No, not follow the trail. - If there was two!
- If he goes along to the trail,
- I don't go onto the trail.
- I would just... - Pass our neighbor's house.
Then a left... - Okay, okay.
- Okay, I'm confused.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa, I would just rest.
I am totally confused.
Okay, um, what was I saying?
You know what's happening with me right now?
It's called sundowning.
And sundowning is when somebody who's got Alzheimer's
has a difficult time remembering and following,
and so that's what's happening to me right now.
Does someone take care of you?
No, no.
I live alone.
But I've got a lot of friends who check up on me.
Yeah, me, too.
I have such, so so so many friends,
I can only remember a few of their names.
Oh, I can't remember names.
Sometimes I get sad.
But not often.
I don't know.
But I try not to get upset because getting upset
just makes it worse, and so...
I have hope that there's going to be a cure
to stop Alzheimer's.
Stop!
Oh.
Come here.
(clapping)

概要

続きを読む
老いは生きている限り避けては通れません。ただ、この動画のアルツハイマー病になってしまったおばあちゃんと無邪気な子供の会話を見ているだけでなぜか心がほっこりします。

1retire0:35
retire を動詞として使う時は「定年」、名詞は retirementです。定年や隠居、引退としても使えます。
Mike wants to retire early and move to the country to enjoy the peace and fresh air.
Mike は早く退職して新鮮な空気とのどかな田舎に引っ越したいと思っています。


2contagious0:57
contagious は形容詞で「伝染性の」という意味で、後ろには病気の名称 diseaseが続きます。また、抽象的な概念の「伝染性のある」の場合、 contagious が使えます。例えば「笑顔」が伝染するsmileや「エネルギー」が伝染する energyはたまた、「シェア」 sharingなどで使えます。それでは例文を見てみましょう。
Chicken pox is a contagious viral disease that produces itchy blisters.
水疱瘡は感染性の高い病気で、特徴としては皮膚に小水疱が生じます。

Distrust can be contagious. But, so can trust.
不信感は感染します。けれども、それは信頼も同じことです。


3substitute 2:35
substitute 名詞や形容詞、動詞としても使える「代わり」「取り替える」の意味があるこの単語ですが、動画では動詞として使っています。では例文を見てみましょう。
名詞:
We need a substitute for the sick teacher。
病気で休んだ先生の代わりを探さなければなりません。


形容詞:
Our teacher is sick, so we need a substitute teacher.
先生が風邪を引きました。代わりの先生が必要です。


動詞:
Our teacher is sick, so we need someone to substitute.
先生が風邪を引いたので、代行が必要です。


4figure out 3:10
figure out 「算定する」、「理解する」、「思いつく」など様々な意味があるこのフレーズ、日常会話ではよく聞きます。 もちろんunderstandthink  など他にも「考える」という意味の単語がありますが、figure out は「熟考して得た結果」なので、ニュアンスに少し違いはあります。
we are trying to figure out the most efficient way.
最も効率の良い方法を探し出しましょう。


5cure 4:44
cure 「治す」という意味のこの単語、動詞と名詞は一緒です。cure それ以外にも「対策」「解決方法」として使うこともできます。例えば: "It is the only possible cure for this problem."「これは問題解決するためのたった一つの方法だ。」。ちなみに、 cure-all がいわゆる万能薬です!
The cure of hunger is food; the cure of ignorance is study.
飢えを治すには食べ物、無知を治すには勉強。


いかがでしたか?
子どもたちの天真爛漫な返事には心がほっこりしますよね。
では、また次回お会いしましょう。
