今日美语MP3:智穷力竭 At One's Wit's End

2015-05-28    来源:Englishbaby.com    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

智穷力竭
At One's Wit's End

【intro 今日导读】

A witty person is a funny person. But one's wit is also a person's intelligence. You can be living by your wits (making money in a clever way), or you can be scared out of your wits (so frightened that you feel crazy). If you have your wits about you, you're ready to think quickly in a situation. Your wits are your ability to truly understand what's happening around you.

If you're at your wit's end, you're unable to think of any more ideas for how to solve a problem. Maybe your baby sister won't stop crying, no matter what you try. Perhaps you've talked with many doctors about an illness, but nobody knows what's wrong with you. You might feel at your wit's end if a boy you don't like calls and emails you every day. When you have tried and tried to fix a situation and you can't find a solution, you are likely to feel at your wit's end.

Jessica is at her wit's end with the office ghost, Oscar. Can she make him stop causing problems? Read more in today's English lesson about feeling frustrated.

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Jessica:  I am so nervous.

Brian:  Me, too. I love interviewing people, but it's different when I'm being interviewed.

Jessica:  What time is the TV crew supposed to be here?

Brian:  7:00.

Jessica:  Huh. That was weird.

Brian:  What do you think the news anchor is going to ask us?

Jessica:  I think they're going to ask us why we believe there's a ghost in the building. What has he done? Are we afraid of him? Did anyone die here? Stuff like that.

Brian:  Is Oscar trying to tell us something? Well, are you, Oscar?

Jessica:  OK! I am at my wits end with you, mister! Do you hear me?

Brian:  I think he's trying to communicate with you.

Jessica:  Do you understand me, Oscar? Good. Now you listen carefully! None of us has done anything to deserve this. You're being a big bully.

Brian:  Yeah! A big bully.

Jessica:  We left food for you. We left you blankets, a pillow, and a book. What else do you want? Are you proud of yourself?

Brian:  I think that means "no."

Jessica:  I sure hope so. Now find someplace else to haunt. Do I make myself clear? Good. Goodbye and good luck to you.

Brian:  Wow. I never want to put you at your wit's end.

Jessica:  No, you don't.
