第六部 第九課: to stick around , guilt trip

 
  • 今天 Michael 和李華去一個夜總會聽音樂,因為他們的朋友 Jack 要帶他的樂隊來演出.李華會學到 to stick aroundguilt trip
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • (Talking loudly over crowd) Michael! (coughs) 哎,這地方真讓人難受哎,聲音這麼大,還有那麼多人抽煙.呵!這些樂隊也真是夠嗆的!
  • I know Li Hua, the show isn't very good. But Jack's band is going to be playing soon. Let's stick around until their performance is over, OK?
  • 喔…,Jack 的樂隊什麼時候來啊?疑,你說什麼 "stick around"? 你的意思就是先不要走,是不是?
  • That's right. I said "let's stick around." That means to stay or remain in a place.
  • 哦, to stick around 就是要在一個地方再待一會兒.懂啦,你的意思啊就是要我們等 Jack 的樂隊來了,表演完了以後再走.哎,Michael, 那乘我們在等他的時候,你再給我舉幾個例子,好不好?
  • Hmmm... Well, you remember Angie Summers, right? She finished her Ph.D. last spring, but has decided to stick around and do some post-doctoral work before she starts looking for a job.
  • 喔,我當然記得 Angie Summers 啦.她啊今年春天拿到了博士學位,可是決定在開始找工作前先不離開學校,做一些博士後的工作.哎,所以,在這裡, to stick around 就是她繼續待下去,不離開學校.哦…, Michael,我們還要等 Jack 等多久嘛?
  • Ah…, I don't know. Let's just stick around for another half hour or so. If Jack doesn't show up, we can leave.
  • 好,那再等他半小時,否則啊我可真要受不了了!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 啊…,謝天謝地,總算完了,我要再在裡面呆下去,就要聾了。
  • Yeah, I'm sorry about that, Li Hua. But if we hadn't waited for Jack to perform, he would have given us a huge guilt trip about it on Monday.
  • 要是我們不等 Jack 的話,他會給我們什麼啊? A guilt trip? Guilt 不是感到有罪、感到內疚嗎?那 Trip 是旅行.哦!你是說 Jack 會覺得非常抱歉啊?
  • No, I meant he'd make us feel guilty.
  • 啊?他,讓我們感到內疚?
  • That's right. A "guilt trip" means guilty feelings one has about doing something wrong. To "give someone a guilt trip" means to try and make him feel guilty.
  • 等等等等,這我得弄清楚了.A guilt trip 就是一個人做錯了什麼事而覺得內疚,好像他犯了錯誤.To give someone a guilt trip 就是讓別人感到內疚.嘿,Jack 的樂隊水平那麼差,讓我們來聽這種音樂,他應該覺得內疚才對呀!
  • I agree! So when was the last time you had a guilt trip about something?
  • 嗯~,我最後一次覺得內疚是什麼時候啊?那就是我要跟我男朋友分手的時候啊,是我要跟他分手的,我到現在心裡還感到有點抱歉。
  • Huh, Don't let him put a guilt trip on you! So why did you break up with him anyway?
  • 因為啊,我和你老在一塊兒學習.他啊總是讓我覺得好像我做錯了什麼是的.He tried to put a guilt trip on me.
  • What? That's insane. I'm glad you broke up with him. Anyway, you'd better not try to make me feel guilty about him.
  • 對,他呀,是有毛病,所以我才和他分手的嘛.我告訴你可是沒有要讓你感到內疚的意思哦!
  • That's better!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了: to stick around,意思是「在一個地方待下去、先別走」.李華還學到了: a guilt trip,這是指「感到內疚」。
