第十四部 第四課: baloney , party animal

 
  • Larry 和李華的朋友 David 這個週末要舉行聚會。Larry 和李華在談論為什麼一個朋友不能參加。李華今天會學到兩個常用語:baloneyparty animal
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Larry,Laura 說她下個週末不能去參加 David 的聚會了,因為她要去看望她的阿姨。
  • That's baloney. She's just making up an excuse not to go to the party.
  • Laura 是在找藉口?我想不會吧!對了,Larry,你說 "That's baloney",這是什麼意思啊?這個 Baloney 不是我們做三明治的時候用的一種大香腸嗎?
  • Yes, literally, baloney is a lunchmeat; however, in this case, baloney means "nonsense."
  • 在這種情況下,baloney 就是指胡說、廢話。你的意思是 Laura 在胡說。嗨,Laura 不去就不去吧,她為什麼要騙人呢?
  • She doesn't want to go to the party either because her ex-boyfriend Jack will be there and doesn't want to be rude.
  • Larry,這婉言謝絕邀請也沒有什麼不禮貌啊。另外,Laura 上次對我說她和 Jack 雖然分手了,可是還是好朋友呢。我才不相信 Laura 是在找藉口。
  • Now, that's really baloney. The two of them don't even speak to each other anymore.
  • 他們倆現在見了面都不理睬,也不說話了啊?這跟 Laura 告訴我的完全相反耶,是誰告訴你的啊?That's baloney!
  • That's what Jack told me the last time I spoke with him. He seemed very disappointed that they weren't getting along. He sounded really sincere.
  • 他對和 Laura 分手感到很失望!That's baloney! 要是他感到惋惜啊,Laura 又說他們還是朋友,那為什麼他告訴你兩個人見了面像仇人那樣不理睬、不說話的?我才不相信 Jack 呢!
  • Come on, Jack is a good guy. He wouldn't tell me something that was baloney.
  • 可是 Laura 也不是壞人,她也不是說謊的人哪!。
  • Okay, okay. Forget what I said! It was all just a bunch of baloney, anyway!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Even if Laura isn't coming, I am glad Tom is coming to David's party. Tom is a real party animal!
  • Larry,你說什麼啊?Tom 是 party animal? Tom 是人耶,可不是什麼動物!
  • Yes, he is a human being, but he is a human being that loves to go to parties! People that love to party are party animals.
  • 原來 party animal 指的是特別喜歡參加聚會的人,也就是聚會狂。Tom 哪一次的聚會都不錯過,要這麼說啊,他的確是個 party animal。Larry,我看你也是一個喜歡參加聚會的人,你也是個 party animal!
  • Yeah, but I am not as much of a party animal as Tom.
  • 喔~,你倒挺謙虛的,覺得自己還比不上 Tom。你說說,你哪一點比 Tom 差呢?
  • Well, Tom goes out to parties nearly every weekend. I've got too much to do, and I really can't go out all the time.
  • 那倒是喔,Tom 確實每個週末都去參加聚會,你啊還沒到這個程度。Larry,David 平時很嚴肅,還很害羞,真沒想到他會舉辦這個聚會耶。他啊絕不是像你和 Tom 那樣的 party animal。
  • Well, you might be surprised! Sometimes at a party David relaxes and acts just like Tom - like a real party animal!
  • 我才不信呢!David 參加聚會時比平時更放鬆一點是可能的,但絕不會像 Tom 那樣耍活寶。我啊看見過 Tom 在聚會時的樣子, David 不可能是個 party animal。
  • Sure, he laughs, tells jokes and has a good time - and some times he gets crazy and does the funniest things.
  • 這可出乎我的意料。David 居然還會如此談笑風生,講笑話,還會做逗人笑的事啊。看來我對他還不是挺了解呢。
  • What about you, Li Hua? Are you a party animal?
  • Larry, 你別胡扯了!你看我像聚會狂嗎?
  • Let's just say if someone said to me "That Li Hua is a real party animal" - I'd say that was baloney!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語。一個是 baloney, 意思是騙人的鬼話、胡扯。李華學到的另一個常用語是 party animal, 指的是特別喜歡參加社交聚會的人
