7 days in a row

The customer who called and asked for me in particular had a playing card stuffed  toy strapped to her  phone
Last week I was of course in the magic bar on Friday and Saturday as usual. Then, there was a wedding celebration party that made our magic bar open on Sunday (normally, it is closed on Sundays) too, and since I had nothing planned I also went there and performed for them.

先週の金・土曜日に勿論マジックバーにいた。日曜日は基本的に店が開いていないが結婚式の二次会の団体の予約があったから、日曜日もやっていた。僕も特に予定がなかったから、僕もその団体にマジックを見せた。

On Monday, I was out eating with a magician friend, and our last stop was our magic bar, so I was there on Monday too. On Tuesday, one of my colleagues in the magic bar was home with a fever, and when suddenly lots of customers appeared, the remaining magician called me and asked if I could come and help out. Which I could and did.

月曜日にマジシャン友達と出かけていた。最後にうちのマジックバーにも寄ったから、金・土・日・月曜日に毎日行った。火曜日に同僚1人が熱出して、休んだ。急にお客さんが沢山入ったので、店長が1人で大変になって、僕に電話した。「暇じゃない?遊びに来ない?」って、笑。僕がまた手伝いに行った。

On Wednesday, some girl called the magic bar and asked if I was there, which since it was Wednesday I was not. But they said that if called, I would probably come. So she said she would go to the magic bar, and one of my colleagues told me to go too. I had no idea what girl this could be, but when she showed up I recognized her (I hand out business cards to lots of people and tell them to come to our magic bar if they want to see more magic, and like this girl some of them do come).

水曜日に店に「ヨーナスが今日いる?」って女の子からの電話が来たそうだ。僕が週末しか出ていないが電話したら多分来ると思うと返したそうだ。女の子が「じゃぁ、行く」って言ったから、僕も同僚に呼ばれた。誰なんだろ、全然分からなかったがお客さんが店に入った時にすぐ分かった。色々な人に店の名刺を配っている(マジックもっと観たかったら、ここでやっているよって感じ)からたまに来るんだ。

My boss told me that I should come to the magic bar on Thursday too, since then I would have been there every day for 7 consecutive days. So I did go yesterday too, and had a lot of fun with some very nice customers.

店長に、「木曜日も来たほうがいい」と言われた。そうしたら、一週間の毎日マジックバー出てたってことになるね。昨日も行って、面白いお客さんにマジックを見せたから、毎日出た!

Since I am going to be in the magic bar this weekend too, I guess I will have 9 consecutive days in the end, but one week is the big milestone I guess.

今日も明日も出る予定なので、結局9日連続出ていることになると思うが大きな数字は7だよね。
