Eu estava estudando o seguinte diálogo, porém ou não consigo entender o significado de "I couldn't help it" nesse contexto,
Literalmente seria "Eu não poderia ajudá-la", mas essa tradução não se encaixa no diálogo.
Cindy: John, where are the cookies? Don't tell me you ate them all! Again!
John: Yes, I did. I couldn't help it. They were so good.
Cindy: I thought you didn't like cookies.
John: Well, I don't like cookies flavored with chocolate at all. But vanilla is different. I love them to death.
Cindy: Huh, I didn't know that.
John: Well, tell you what, vanilla cookies taste even better with a glass of cold milk.
Help me, please!
