第十部 第三課: juice , nuke

 
  • Larry 和李華正在電影院外面等朋友.電影都快開場了,可是朋友還沒到. Larry 決定用手機給這個朋友打電話.今天李華會學到兩個常用語: juicenuke.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Darn! My cell phone is out of juice. Can I use your cell phone to call Bob and Lisa and find out why they're late?
  • 你的手機怎麼啦? Out of juice, juice 是果汁哎.哦~,該不是你的電話掉到果汁裡啦?難怪不能用啦!
  • No, my cell phone is out of juice. "Juice" is slang for "power". I meant that the battery in my phone is out of power.
  • 哦~,原來 juice 在這裡是指電池裡的電啊!所以 out of juice 就是沒電的意思.既然你的手機沒電了,你可以用我的,我昨晚啊才充過電,so it has plenty of juice.
  • That's fortunate. At least one of us has a functioning phone.
  • 對了, Larry 你前些天不是說你的車有毛病嗎?現在怎麼樣啦?
  • Yes, my car wouldn't start because the battery was out of juice. I had to go to the mechanic and get a new battery.
  • 原來是車子裡的電池沒電啦!看來這 juice 還真少不了喔,否則什麼也幹不了了.昨天,我的激光唱機沒電.哦!,沒有 juice了,偏偏我又找不到電池,害得我啊什麼也聽不了。
  • Yeah, I hate it when that happens, too. The other day, I was in the middle of typing a report on my laptop, when the battery ran out of juice. I almost lost the whole report.
  • 哇~,你可得特別小心電腦的電池呢.如果電腦沒電了,你輸入的報告還有檔案都可能會泡湯.那可就嚴重了!
  • I know! I've had some awful experiences with that. Fortunately, now computer companies are making laptops with batteries that hold more juice.
  • 就是,現在的電腦啊用的都是容量比較大的電池,所以打到一半沒電的情形啊少多了. Larry,你啊還是快點給他們打電話吧!電影很快就要開始了。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 我真不敢相信 Lisa 和 Bob 居然說好了 (卻) 不來,太糟糕了!
  • Yeah, I agree. Do you still want to go out to dinner? Or do you want to nuke the pizza that's in my fridge and eat that?
  • Nuke a pizza? Nuke 是 nuclear 核能的簡稱哎.哎!Larry,你是準備怎麼吃那塊比薩啊?
  • Oh, to nuke something is slang for cooking it in the microwave.
  • 哦~,你啊真是嚇了我一跳呢!原來 to nuke 就是把東西放進微波爐裡加熱啊!所以你是說你想把冰箱裡的那塊 pizza 熱來當晚飯吃。
  • Well, it would save some money. I also have some frozen dinners we could nuke. It would be faster than going to a restaurant.
  • 嗯,吃冷凍食品啊是比去餐館吃飯比較快,又便宜,可是我覺得冷凍食品不好吃耶!吃東西啊還是要吃新鮮的好!
  • My cousin won't eat food that's been nuked at all. She thinks that using a microwave is unhealthy.
  • 真的嗎?你表妹說微波過的食物都不健康.那微波食物真的對身體有害啊?
  • I don't know and I don't want to know. Nuking food is so convenient and quick that I really don't want to give it up.
  • 我知道,微波食物啊既方便又快速.有的時候我實在太忙,沒時間做飯,我也是用微波爐來熱剩菜剩飯的。
  • I hardly ever have time to cook an entire meal. I'm also not a very good cook, so I would probably starve without a microwave.
  • 好多男生啊都不會做飯,也沒有興趣.我看啊沒有微波爐他們是要餓死的。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語,第一個是: juice,也就是「電源電力」的意思; 另一個常用語是: nuke,是「用微波爐加熱」的意思。
