难伺候难打理 High Maintenance

【intro 今日导读】

The best part about buying something new is that you don’t have to worry about spending too much time taking care of it. If it’s a brand new car or computer, you know that you won’t need to do any maintenance on it for a while. But what if you don’t have enough money to buy a new car, and all you can afford is something that might need a lot of attention just to keep it going?

Cars aren’t the only things that might need a lot of maintenance. People can spend a lot of time, energy, and money to take care of their pets, relationships, and even how they look. If you’ve made a big investment in something, it might pay off to maintain it well.

Jessica just got a new haircut and realizes that this new style will be more high maintenance than before. Find out more in today’s English lesson about keeping up a new routine.

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Jessica:  Gary.

Gary:  Yes.

Jessica:  I just got a new haircut.

Gary:  You did. It looks really nice!

Jessica:  Well, thank you. It’s actually turning out to be really high maintenance.

Gary:  No, really?

Jessica:  Yeah. It was an investment to get the haircut. I don’t get my hair cut very often.

Gary:  But, so it was worth it?

Jessica:  It was worth it. I thought it looked good, especially at first. But I can’t get into the routine of making it look so perfect. My hair’s been a little more fussy since I got this haircut.

Gary:  How is your hair reacting to it?

Jessica:  Well, it’s shorter in different places. So my it’s a little new to me.

Gary:  OK.

Jessica:  I’m sure if I make the investment on the right products, maybe then it’ll look better.

Gary:  It also sounds like you have to develop a new routine with this different style.

Jessica:  Exactly. I’ll try to adjust.
