I went to a museum with some friends.
(友達何人かと美術館に行きました)
Just before we entered it, one of my friends said to me that my skirt was nice.
(美術館に入る直前、友達の一人が私のスカートを素敵だと言いました)

I said thank you.
(私はありがとうと言いました)

We enjoyed the exhibition, and then moved to a restaurant, where we were supposed to have lunch together.
(展示を見た後、一緒にお昼を食べることになっていたのでレストランに移動しました)

While walking there, the same person pointed to my necklace and said it looked so good on me.
(そこまで歩いている途中、同じ彼女が私のネックレスを指して、とても似合うと言いました)

It wasn’t anything special or expensive, but I said thank you again.
(それは全然、特別でも高価でもないものでしたが、私はまたお礼を言いました)

After lunch, she said that my bags were fancy and asked if they were a pair.
(ランチの後、彼女は私のバッグを素敵だと言って、その2つのバッグはセットなのかと聞きました)

This time, I was a little embarrassed.
(今度は、私はちょっと気まずく感じました)

It was true that I was holding two black bags, small one on my shoulder and a big one on my hand.
(確かに私は黒いバッグを2つ持っていました、小さいのを肩に掛けて、大きいのを手に持って)

However, both were old and not coordinated at all.
(でも、どちらも古かったし、組み合わせなんて全然考えてもいなかったのです)

The small one was even getting worn.
(小さい方なんて、擦り切れかけていました)

She is very friendly and talkative.
(彼女はとても気さくで話し好きの人です)

Compliments usually make people happy, but how about too much of them?
(褒め言葉というのは普通は人を喜ばせますが、やり過ぎはどうなんでしょう?)

I felt good with the first compliment and maybe the second one.
(最初に褒められた時は私も嬉しかったし、2回めもそうだったと思います)

However, the third one made me feel like all her compliments had been empty.
(でも、3回めに褒められた時には、今までのも全部ただのお世辞だったんだと思ってしまいました)
