看美剧学英语:把某人逼疯了怎么说?

现实生活中,我们可能会遇到一些非常生气或者棘手的事情,这个时候nuts这个词很好用哦

今天 Michae l刚好在校园裡碰到李华。李华会在谈话中学到两个常用语:couch potato 和 nuts。

嗨,Michael, 你要上哪儿去呀?

I'm going to meet Jon at the subway. You've met Jon, haven't you?

嗯,是不是上一次在 party 上你给我介绍那个带眼镜的人呢?

Yes. I want to drag him out to do something. You know, he's such a couch potato.

噢?他是什麼? Couch potato? 什麼是 couch potato? 他爱吃土豆啊?

No, couch potato is an expression used to describe someone who sits in front of the TV all the time eating junk food, such as potato chips.

哦~,原来 couch potato 是指一个人老坐在电视机前吃零食。我知道了,couch 就是沙发, potato 呢是土豆, p-o-t-a-t-o, 可是 Michael 啊,couch 是怎麼拼的呢?

Couch is spelled: c-o-u-c-h.

哎~,这个常用语到挺有趣的。那~,couch potato 是不是只能够指人吶?

Yes, it is only used to describe people, those who are lazy and unmotivated.

哦~,只能够指人,指那些懒懒散散,没有动力的人。好,下回啊我就要叫我哥哥 couch potato。他老是看电视,一看啊就看到叁更半夜,吃东西啊撒在地毯上、沙发上,到处都是。

My father's like that too. My mother is always angry at him. But he doesn't care.

啊?你爸爸也是这样呀!我要是你妈啊,我也会生气的。

But sometimes, after a really hard week at school, I also just want to collapse and be a couch potato.

嗯~,一个星期在学校唸书,实在是很累喔,回家当一回 couch potato,我想还是可以的,只要啊不是每天都这样就行了。

Yes, Li Hua, I agree.

Li Hua, would you like to join us? Jon and I are going to play tennis.

啊?你们要打网球呀,那太好了,我正在学打网球吶。

That's wonderful. You know, some people think I'm nuts to have a friend like Jon.

啊?你说有的人认為你是什麼? Nuts?疑?Nuts 不是花生、杏仁那样的果仁吗?你跟 Jon 交朋友跟吃花生有什麼关係呀?

No, nuts here means someone who is crazy.

哦~,原来nuts在这裡是说一个人做的事很怪。大概就像我们中文说的:你疯啦!对不对?

That's right. Jon can be rude, and he also argues a lot. Sometimes he does drive me nuts.

哎~,他看起来不像会对别人无礼、爱跟人争论的人哪!哎,你刚才说 drives me nuts 是什麼意思啊?

Drives me nuts means he makes me crazy.

哦~,原来还可以说 drive me nuts,或者是 drive someone nuts。哎!Michael 啊,那天我上移民局去办手续,排队好长啊,我站了一小时,我真是火死了。我能不能说:They drove me nuts 呢?

Of course. You know, my mother used to make me clean my room every night when I was in high school and that drove me nuts.

啊?你唸中学的时候,你妈妈每天晚上要你打扫房间呀?那是有点受不了。哎,Michael,你认识我的朋友张红吗?

Oh, yes, she is nuts. She spent $200 on a dress, and it's ugly.

嘻嘻嘻,对!张红这个人啊是有点问题喔,花两百美元买件难看的衣服。哎,不过,Michael, You sometimes drive me nuts too.

Li Hua, I think you are learning these words too fast.

今天李华学了两个常用语,一个是: couch potato;另一个是: nuts.
