Michael 和李华今天早上都有课,现在正往课堂走。李华今天会学到两个常用语:

L: Michael, 别往我头上扔雪块,行吗?你怎么象个小孩呀!
M: Li Hua, I'm just goofing off.
L: 你就是讨厌。我不懂什么是goofing off.
M: Actually Li Hua,goof off does mean that I'm acting stupid and not being serious.
Goofa verb.
L: 噢,to goof off 就是干无聊的事,那你确实很无聊,老向我扔雪 块。
M: To goof offa great term. Young people usea lot. Itoften useddescribe
how young people are behaving.
L: 年轻人经常用to goof off 来形容别人的行为?我记得念中学时班 上有个学生
老是打断老师的话,喜欢开玩笑,你可以说这个学生 是goofing off 吗?
M: Yeah, that's right. Children or young people often goof off. Do you remember when
we were at the movies and those high school students threw candy at the screen, you
could say they were goofing off.
L: 对,没错,小孩和年轻人经常会做一些无聊的事开玩笑。我才不会忘掉我们那
次去看电影的事呢。那几个中学生往银幕上扔糖果,真是太无聊了,他们还以为
好玩呢。
M: To tell you the truth, whenwentthe libraryhigh school with my roommates
we would usually waste time and ended up goofing off.
L: 你是说,你念中学时跟同学去图书馆念书,结果在那儿互相扔纸球?
M: Yeah, that's right.
L: 怪不得你一开始考不上大学呢! 行,教室到了,下课等我一起去图书馆,可
千万不要goof off。
L: 这课真是枯燥无味。我最讨厌晚上上课,每次上完课,我都感到很累。
M: That's right. Even though it's not that late, I'm readyhit the sack!
L: 你说什么?你要去捅一个口袋?Sack 不是麻袋吗?我以为你很累了,而你现
在要去运动?
M: No, no. It's a colloquial saying.mean I'm goingbed. Sack, here means bed, and
hit means going to.
L: 噢,原来to hit the sack 是指去睡觉,sack 在这里是指床,hit 是去 床上睡觉的
意思。那我要坐下,能不能说hit the chair?
M: No, not really. This phrase --hit the sack -- has a pretty limited meaning.
L: 哟,to hit the sack 只能指去睡觉,别的地方还不能用!那要是我 午想睡个午
睡,能不能说:I wanthit the sack?
M: No, it's usually usedtalk about goingbed at night, after a long day at work or
school.
L: 午睡也不能用,只能指一天工作和学习后晚上去睡觉。那现在我 已经上了一
天的学,再加上晚上上了这堂枯燥无味的课,我可 以说:It's time for mehit the
sack。对不对?
M: That's correct, Li Hua. But don't forget that we have a test tomorrow.
L: 我当然不会忘掉明天的考试。
M: Ok, now go hit the sack, but after tomorrow's test we will havestudy seriously
for next week's test, no more goofing off.
L: 明天考试后你想好好学习,为下星期的考试作准备。没问题,我 帮你准备,
我们俩都会考得很好。
M: Yeah, I'm goinghit the sack. Bye, Li Hua!
