第十二部 第四課: wiped out , cutie-pie

 
  • 李華的教授剛添了個女兒.李華和 Larry 準備去拜訪這位教授,向他們表示祝賀.今天李華會學到兩個常用語: wiped outcutie-pie
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 嘿! Larry,我想去看看瓊斯教授和他太太.他們的女兒 Sarah 現在也應該有幾個星期大了!
  • Aren't you worried they are too wiped out to have company?
  • Wiped out?你說瓊斯教授他們怎麼樣了啊?
  • Too wiped out means they must be really tired. I am sure they haven't gotten much sleep with a new baby in the house.
  • 哦~, Wiped-out 就是很疲乏的意思.添了小寶寶他們倆啊可能都睡不好.不過我想,我們早一點去拜訪他們,坐一會兒就走,應該沒問題吧.我聽說啊 baby Sarah 真的很可愛哎!
  • OK, That sounds good, but we should call before we go. You know, I am amazed Professor Jones is still teaching classes considering how wiped out he must be.
  • 就是啊,雖然很累,瓊斯教授還來上課呢!真是令人佩服!我啊,只要想到去上課都好累,更何況我還沒有小寶寶呢。
  • You're right! Just going to work every day wipes me out. I can't imagine what it must be like to have to get up so many times in the middle of the night to feed the baby and change diapers.
  • 沒錯,半夜裡要起來好幾次餵奶,換尿布,真是難以想像.我可受不了。
  • Wait until you have your own baby, you wouldn't mind to be wiped out.
  • 我想是這樣吧,有了自己的孩子啊再累也不在乎.好吧,那我們就給瓊斯教授打個電話,看他們什麼時候方便讓我們過去,順便啊看看小寶寶。
  • And before we go we probably should stop somewhere and get a card and present for the baby. You aren't too wiped out to do a little shopping first, are you?
  • 說到逛街買禮物啊,我才不會覺得累呢!特別是買那些可愛的小寶寶衣服.我再累啊也願意去!
  • I should have known!
  • 好,那我現在就給瓊斯教授打電話!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Larry,你覺得 baby Sarah 是不是真的好可愛喔?
  • She was indeed. She was a real cutie-pie!
  • A cutie-WHAT?你怎麼說她是個派啊? Pie?那不是一種點心嗎?
  • Well, a "cutie-pie" isn't actually a pie like the dessert, but means someone who is very cute.
  • 原來如此,cutie-pie 不是指點心,而是指人長的很可愛.小寶寶 Sarah 眼睛大大的,再加上圓圓的臉蛋,真是可愛! She's certainly a cutie-pie!
  • And little Sarah certainly takes after her mother. Professor Jones's wife is a cutie-pie, too!
  • 哎, Larry,瓊斯教授的太太可是已婚婦女哦!就算你覺得她長的可愛,恐怕也沒機會了吧.我勸你啊,還是多注意身邊是不是還有其他可愛的女孩兒吧!
  • Do you have any one in mind?
  • 說起來,我還真有幾個長的很可愛的女朋友哎,或許可以給你介紹一個,讓你們出去吃個飯或看電影什麼的啊。
  • Well, you would be a real sweetie-pie if you would give one of them a call and say nice things about me.
  • 疑?等等,我以為你剛才教我的是 cutie-pie,怎麼現在你又說我是個 sweetie-pie?
  • Sweetie-pie just means you are a very nice person. "Cutie-pie" and "sweetie-pie" are both often used to describe young children.
  • 哦~,Sweetie-pie 和 cutie-pie 往往是形容小孩兒.那我是不是可以叫你 "oldy-pie"?因為啊你可不年輕囉。
  • Sorry, Li Hua, it's just "sweetie-pie" or "cutie-pie." That's it.
  • 我知道,跟你開玩笑而已,而且你也不老. Larry,你這麼熱心教我英語啊,你真是個 sweetie-pie。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語.一個是: wiped out,是「形容一個人很疲乏」.另一個常用語是: cutie-pie,是「形容一個人長的很可愛」. sweetie-pie 則是「指一個人心地善良、熱心助人」。
