Holic Rumor Mill (164)

Announcement (2008.09.06): So, I was calmly translating Holic this morning, and decided to check on what I should do to apply for the JLPT, and find out that the deadline in Brazil is today. So, I'm off again falling even more behind with my translations.

Announcement (2008.09.05): Guess what... another job interview today. So Holic will most likely be late. And hello, scanning community, do I need to whine all the time about the lateness of Holic scans? It does get old, you know.

Repeat with me: the worst language in the world is the language of Human Resources personnel. ¬¬

Chapter 164

That trespassing Mokona, what's that!? With Chef Watanuki's trusty recipe, he'll grant that wish for sure!!

Watanuki: Well,
that person is perfectly capable.
She doesn't wash the rice with detergent or have any awkward points.
She can also use a kitchen knife properly, and her quantity measurings are always right on the mark.
I think she'd be just fine even if I didn't teach her.

He has cooked potato rolls at hand. Himawari asks whether it isn't difficult. Watanuki's explanation is simple and easy to understand. A chime resounds from the school building. She has day duty today so she's off first. This time when she is invited by Watanuki to go to the cake shop with him, she covers her eyes for a moment.

Himawari: ... Sure.
I look forward to it.
Watanuki: Me too.

Even right in the middle of the exchange Doumeki didn't give the chopsticks a break. The chopsticks stop. He feels unrest from the cooked rolls. It's something that the client cooked under Watanuki's guidance. There's no way it could taste bad, but...

"I want to learn to cook" should have been just a peaceful wish... The unrest sensed by Doumeki, what kind of enigma could be in this flavor!?

From what Watanuki said, looks like the client really -is- able to do stuff in the kitchen. She probably knows exactly what happens (even if we don't) when she tries to cook, so why didn't she just say it up front?
