第十部 第一課: chocoholic , fix

 
  • 李華和 Larry 到商店裡去買東西.李華看到巧克力正在減價出售,所以買了一大堆.今天李華會學到兩個常用語: chocoholicfix.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Whoa, Li Hua. I didn't know you were such a chocoholic. How are you going to eat all of that?
  • 我看這巧克力多便宜啊!所以當然得多買一些囉!疑?你剛才說我是 chocoholic,那是什麼意思啊,是不是說我很愛吃巧克力?
  • A chocoholic is someone who likes chocolate so much that they are practically addicted to it.
  • 哦~, chocoholic 還真的是指特別愛吃巧克力的人啊,可是,我還沒有到上癮的地步啦. Larry,喝酒成癮的人在英文裡面就是 alcoholic.那 chocoholic 是不是跟 alcoholic 一樣嚴重呀?
  • Don't worry. Being a chocoholic isn't as serious as being an alcoholic. All you have to worry about is getting fat from eating so much candy.
  • 我啊確實是很愛吃巧克力,你要說我是 chocoholic 也沒關係.不過,我不會因為吃巧克力而發胖,因為我挺能控制自己,我一天啊只吃一、兩塊。
  • I suppose that's reasonable. My mom is a real chocoholic, too. It's easy to buy her a birthday present or a mother's day present - I just buy her a box of chocolates.
  • 原來,你媽媽也愛吃巧克力啊.這樣看來,好像大多數喜歡吃巧克力的人都是女的.你們男孩兒難道不喜歡巧克力嗎?
  • Personally, I love chocolate, but I know a lot of guys who don't like it very much. I don't know why chocolate seems to be more popular among girls.
  • 嗯,我也搞不清楚為什麼女孩子要比男孩子更喜歡巧克力.這樣吧!我們啊可以做個調查,看看每個人每天吃多少巧克力,說不定能找出答案哦!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey, Li Hua, have you had your daily chocolate fix yet?
  • Chocolate fix? Fix 是修理的意思,修理巧克力? Larry,你在說什麼啊?
  • To get a "fix" is to get a portion of something that you're addicted to and thereby relieve your craving. You're a chocoholic, so you need a chocolate fix once in a while.
  • 哦~, fix 在這裡不是修理的意思.你是指我每天都要吃巧克力,今天有沒有吃了巧克力,過了隱的意思啊.那 Larry,我知道你喜歡喝咖啡,我是不是能說每天早上你都需要 a caffeine fix?
  • That's exactly right. Once in a while, I need a chocolate fix, too. I don't know why, but sometimes I really crave chocolate.
  • 你有的時候也愛吃巧克力啊?這麼說你和我一樣,都是 chocoholic 囉?
  • I don't need to have chocolate every day, but I am guilty of needing an occasional chocolate fix.
  • 哎喲!原來你只是偶爾想吃巧克力啊.對了,回答你剛才的問題,我今天啊還沒有過我的 chocolate 隱呢!
  • Okay, then I have a suggestion. Let's go to Starbucks and get coffee and chocolate chip cookies.
  • 好主意耶!到星巴克咖啡館去喝咖啡,還吃帶巧克力的點心,這樣啊你和我都可以解饞了!
  • We'll be getting a sugar fix at the same time, too. It's a brilliant plan!
  • 等等,什麼又是 sugar fix?
  • Well, some people crave sweet things in general, so they need a sugar fix. In addition, sugar gives you an extra boost of energy.
  • 沒錯,有的人啊每天都得吃甜的東西,不吃啊就好像少了什麼似的.你說糖還有提神的作用啊?這我倒是不知道.既然如此,那好吧,快去咖啡館囉!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到兩個常用語,第一個是: chocoholic,是形容「一個人愛吃巧克力到了成癮的地步」;另一個常用語是: fix,在這裡是名詞,就是「吃自己特別愛吃的東西過過隱」。
