第十七部 第十二課: party foul , split

 
  • Larry 和李華在 Larry 的朋友 Sam 家開 party。李華今天要學兩個常用語,party foulsplit.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Gosh, I am SO sorry, Li Hua! I just spilled some of my drink on you. What a party foul!
  • 沒事的,Larry. 只不過是點兒汽水而已,一下就弄乾淨了。不過,什麼是party foul 啊?
  • A party foul is when you do something really embarrassing at a party - like spill your drink on someone.
  • 噢,foul 在體育比賽裡是犯規的意思,那 party foul 就是指開派對的時候出醜嘍。
  • Right, and nobody really likes to commit a party foul, but sometimes when you are having a lot of fun and there are a lot of people together in one place, it is easy to do something stupid.
  • 發生 party foul 的時候,其他人會怎樣呢?
  • Sometimes they stare or it gets very quiet - or other times some one might yell, "Party foul!" And everyone will laugh.
  • 那可真夠丟人的。不過,灑點兒飲料不算什麼,我見過更糟糕的party foul。
  • Really? What is the worse party foul you've seen?
  • 有一次我去參加朋友的婚禮。大家跳舞的時候,發生了我見過的超級party foul.
  • Don't keep me in suspense, Li Hua! Tell me about this party foul. What happened?
  • 有個客人踩在了新娘的婚紗上,把婚紗撕掉了一大塊。所有人都傻了,大廳裡鴉雀無聲。
  • Yikes! That really is a major party foul. What happened then?
  • 新郎和新娘處理得很好,他們知道那個客人一定很難堪,所以馬上開了個玩笑,幫他解圍。
  • I think the most embarrassing party foul I committed was the time I went to a party in a suit.
  • 穿西裝去參加派對有什麼不對嗎?
  • Well, I received an invitation to a very fancy New Year's Eve party once from my boss. I didn't read the invitation very closely though.
  • Uh-oh. 你犯了什麼不可饒恕的 party foul 嗎?
  • Well, when I showed up at the party and all the men were wearing tuxedos, I knew I had committed a party foul.
  • 別人都穿正式的燕尾服,只有你一個人穿西裝,肯定特尷尬吧?哎,時間不早了,咱們是不是該走了?
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • This has been a nice party, but you are right, Li Hua. We really should split.
  • We need to split. Split 不是把東西劈成兩半的意思嗎?
  • It is, but split S-P-L-I-T is also a slang term meaning to leave a place - and sometimes to leave a place quickly.
  • 噢,原來是馬上離開的意思。我前天晚上看了一個老的西部片,有個匪徒殺人後就說他要 split town, 逃出城。
  • That's a good example, Li Hua. That meant he had to get out of town quickly, before the police figured out he had committed the crime.
  • 好吧,Larry, 我準備好了,Let's split! 我們走吧。
  • That's a perfect use of "split", Li Hua! But before we split, we really should go find Sam and thank him for a fun evening.
  • 對啊,不跟主人打招呼就走,別人會覺得我們沒禮貌的。
  • You're right, Li Hua. Oh, there is Sam over there. I'm going to go over and tell him we are going to split.
  • 等等,Larry. 你看,還有這麼多人呢,我們不會走得太早了吧?
  • No, I don't think it is too early for us to split. We've been here a couple of hours already. Plus, Sam will understand. He knows I have to work tomorrow - and that you have to teach classes.
  • 那好,我在這兒等你。
  • There. I told Sam we were going to split, and that we had a great time.
  • Sam 沒有不高興吧?
  • Oh, no. Not at all. In fact, he said he was glad we came and hoped we would come again the next time he had a party.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語。一個是 party foul, 是在 part 上出醜的意思。另一個是 split, 是趕快走的意思。
