Michael 这个美国学生由于各方面的压力太大而情绪不太好。今天他想去找李华一
起出去放松放松。现在他正在敲李华的门。Michael 会教李华两个常用语:to play
hooky 和to snap。

L:Michael,你在这儿干什么?你不是有课吗?
M:Yes, I'm supposedbeclass right now. Butdidn't read the assignment for class
today, andjust didn't feel like going, sodecidedplay hooky.
L:你真够呛,没看今天上课的材料就不想去上课,还想在家玩什么游戏!什么
是hooky 呀?
M:No,play hooky meansskip class.
L:噢,原来to play hooky 是指逃学,旷课。我还以为是玩什么游戏呢!Michael,
你要进来坐会儿吗?
M:Actually,was goingthe student centerhang out and have lunch.was
wondering if you would likecome with me.
L:你要到学生中心那儿去看看,然后再吃午饭呀?我跟你一起去,我本来就要
去吃午饭。不过,我只有一个小时的时间,下午我得去工作。
M:It seems like you have been working a lot lately.have an idea! Why don't you call
inwork and tell them you're sick! You can also play hooky from work.
L:我最近工作是很忙。Michael,你的意思是让我打电话给工作的地方说我生病,
这样就可以不去上班?这也可以说是to play hooky?
M:Yes, you can play hooky from school or from work.
L:你可真能出馊主意!自己逃学还不算,还要我装病不去工作。不行,我工作
的地方星期一总是很忙的,而且上星期我真的生病,请了两天假。I don't want to
play hooky from work. 我说得对不对,Michael?
M:Yes, very good.guess you'd better gowork then. It's too badcan't spend more
time with you. Well, if you have only one hour for lunch, we'd better hurry.
L:别着急,一个小时来得及。等我拿件大衣。
L:Michael, 你很幸运,没有象我那么多的压力。我得自己赚钱付学费,还要养
活自己。你可以随便play hooky, 我可不行。
M:Hey,may play hooky oncea while, butusually study hard. Do you think I
don't feel any pressureget good grades? Ifdon't do well,won't get a good job
later on.
L:哟,哪儿来那么大的火气呀!我知道你不是经常逃学,你学习很努力,争取
得到好分数,将来找一份好工作。你不用发那么大的脾气嘛!
M:I'm sorry, Li Hua.didn't meansnap at you. It's just that right now I'm so
stressed. That's partthe reason whydidn't goclass today.
L:没关系,我知道你最近压力很大。你说 "I didn't meansnap at you", 那是什
么意思呀?是不是指你很生气地跟我说话?
M:Yeah,snap, s-n-a-p. To snap at someone meansyell at someone or talkthem
in an angry way.
L:to snap at someone 就是对某人大声嚷嚷,或者很生气地和某人说话。Michael,
你一般不对人那么讲话的。我想可能是你最近压力太大了。
M:Yeah, but that's no excuse for snapping at you.know you didn't meanmake me
angry.
L:我是没有让你生气的意思。没关系,每个人都有情绪不好的时候嘛!Michael,
我以前好象听到别人用过to snap at someone,可不太清楚它的意思。有一次,一
个小孩说他打破了什么东西。。。
M:His mother must have snapped at him when he broke something at home.
L:对,他是说他妈妈骂他因为他打破了一个花瓶。可是,Michael,这里的snap
是过去时,那该怎么拼呢?
M:Past tense for snaps-n-a-p-p-e-d.can say, "I snapped at you butapologized."
L:得了,不用道歉了。啊呀,不好了,时间到了,我得去上班了。See you later,
Michael!
M:Bye, Li Hua!

今天李华又从Michael 那儿学到两个常用语,to play hooky 就是逃学,或者装病不
去上班;to snap 就是对某人嚷嚷,很生气地对某人说话。这次<流行美语>播送完
了,下次节目再见。
