第九部 第一課: to be beat , to O.D. on something

 
  • 今天 Larry 和李華花了大半天時間在購物中心裡,採購聖誕禮物.今天李華會學到兩個常用語: to be beatto O.D. on something.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • The mall was so crowded! I'm totally beat from fighting the crowds all day long.
  • 就是啊!我啊從來沒有看過這麼多人一塊兒逛街.哎?Larry,你剛才說 I'm beat,是不是說我們擠在人群裡的時候,有人打你啊?
  • No, nobody hit me. The expression "I'm beat" means, "I'm exhausted."
  • 哦~,原來 I'm beat,不是打的意思,而是累壞啦.其實啊,我也好累喔.你想想我們在這兒花了 6 個小時哎,怎麼可能不累。
  • It would have taken only two hours at most if we didn't have to spend so much time waiting in line to pay for things. I bet the sales people are really beat by the end of the day.
  • 你說的沒錯,光是付錢啊,我們就花了很多時間排隊.我看啊,那些售貨員一天下來肯定累壞囉。
  • Well, I'm glad I don't work in a store. I'm so beat that I think I'm going to go to bed very early tonight. What about you?
  • 我也累死了,今晚啊可能也得早點睡了.嘿!Larry,如果說我逛街逛累了,我是不是能說 shopping beat me?
  • No, you can only say, "I'm beat from shopping."
  • 哦~,這麼說,下星期我要準備期末考試,我應該說: Next week, I'll be beat from studying for my final exams.
  • Please, don't mention exams. I'm beat just thinking about studying for them.
  • 哎,Larry,你也別這麼想嘛!準備的時候是很累;可是,考試如果考得好,不也是很高興的事嘛!
  • That's true. I hope my family members appreciate the effort I put into finding their Christmas presents.
  • 你花了那麼大的功夫買來的禮物,你家人啊一定會喜歡的.唉!我們倆都累了,還是回家吧.明天見囉!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 嘿, Larry,你好一點了嗎?還是你仍然覺得很累啊?
  • I'm afraid I'm not feeling much better. I caught a cold and then I O.D.ed on cold medicine. Now, I feel really tired and spacey.
  • 什麼,你感冒啦?你還說你 O.D. 了一些感冒藥.那是什麼意思啊?嚴不嚴重啊?
  • "To O.D. on something" is short for "to overdose on something."
  • 啊~,O.D. 就是服藥過量?那不是很危險嗎?你是不是該去醫院檢查一下啊?
  • No, don't worry. Usually, O.D.ing on medicine or drugs is very serious, but I probably took a little bit too much cold medicine, not enough to hurt me.
  • 哦~,那就好!你啊剛才真把我嚇了一跳呢.其實我也不太舒服,我啊看了好幾個小時的書哦,現在頭好疼呢!
  • Hey, please don't mention exams and studying. I don't even want to think about exams now that I have a cold!
  • 好啦!我不再提唸書和考試了嘛!Larry,也許你應該少吃些感冒藥,多多睡覺.這樣啊或許會感覺好一些。
  • I think O.D.ing on some more sleep is a good advice, it's probably the only way I'm going to get through exams with a cold.
  • 那好,如果你想多睡覺、多休息;我啊,可要多叫點比薩來吃,我快餓壞了!
  • I wouldn't mind having some pizza, too. Order enough for both of us.
  • Larry,如果你還能感覺肚子餓,那你肯定沒有病的太嚴重啦!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到兩個常用語,第一個是: to be beat,意思是「因為做某件事而累壞了」,就是 to be beat from something;第二個常用語是: to O.D. on something,意思是「對某個東西服用過量」。
