とにかく数が..

日本語
とにかく数が多すぎて、全員を相手にすることができない。「靴を磨かせて」と言われても、スニーカーを履いていてはどうにもならない。いつの間にか、子供たちの数が増えてゆく。芥川龍之介の『蜘蛛の糸』を髣髴とさせる光景。夥しい数の子供たちに囲まれ、間隔が次第に麻痺していく。数日後、ついに「キリがない」と彼らを無視することにした。
英語
There are so many and of course I can't help them all. They asked me if they could clean my shoes, but I had sneakers on. Without even knowing, the number of children has increased. It was a view that closely resembled 'The spider's thread' written by Ryu Akutagawa. A great number of children were around me and I was gradually feeling more lost. After a few days, I decided to ignore them finally as it really was endless.
