第十五部 第二課: to down , to chug

  • Larry 和李華在學校的食堂裡吃晚飯。李華今天會學到兩個常用語;to downto chug
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • You know, Li Hua, I think I can down this entire hamburger in a single bite. I am that hungry.
  • 聽你的意思,我猜你是說你可以一口就把這個漢堡包吃下去, 對不對?
  • You're right, my friend! The hamburger will go down to my stomach.
  • 你看我沒猜錯吧! Down就是吃的意思。Larry,你說一口就能吃下去這有點誇張吧。 人又不是蛇, 要噎住了怎麼辦呢?
  • Well, maybe I was exaggerating a little, but down means to eat something all at once and really fast.
  • 我明白了,down不僅是吃,而且是狼吞虎嚥。我記得在電視上看過 吃熱狗比賽,有個人在12分鐘內吃了50個熱狗,He downed 50 hot dogs in 12 minutes! Larry,你能吃這麼多嗎?
  • No, I can't. I'm pretty hungry right now, but I think I would get sick after downing so many hot dogs in so little time.
  • 一下子吃這麼多熱狗,你當然受不了。不過, 人都有狼吞虎嚥的時候。像我,回國探親的時,有時候一頓飯能吃好幾十個餃子呢。
  • But steamed dumplings are so small, I bet you can down fifty of those and still feel okay.
  • 五十個餃子,那可不少啊。 我只要吃上二十個就已經很飽了。
  • Well, one of my favorite things to eat is chocolate chip cookies. When I was a kid my Mom would bake them, and I would down a whole plate of cookies just like that.
  • 帶巧克力的餅乾我也愛吃。大多數美國婦女都會烤這種餅乾。可是,你媽怎麼會讓你把烤出來的一盤全吃了呢?你們美國人可真能吃。
  • But I know you like ice cream, Li Hua. I've seen you down an ice cream cone in just a few seconds.
  • 你說對了,我的確喜歡冰淇淋。 其實我現在就想吃。 I'd like to down an ice cream cone right now.
  • Well, you go get your ice cream cone - and I am going to finish downing this burger.
  • 好吧,Larry,我去拿冰淇淋, 你把這漢堡吃完,我一會兒就回來。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • Hey, Li Hua, after downing that burger, now I really need to chug a big glass of soda.
  • Chug,那是什麼意思啊?
  • You know how you down a hamburger by eating it very quickly? You chug a soda by drinking it really fast and all at once.
  • 我剛才就猜是這個意思, chug就是很快地一下子喝光。Chug聽起來好像是個像聲字。
  • Well, listen to me chug this soda and tell me what you hear.
  • (Sound of drinking)
  • 聽到了, 你喝起來有咕嘟咕嘟的聲音。
  • Yeah, chug comes from the sound you make when you drink something quickly and all at one time.
  • 只有在喝冷飲的時候才能夠咕嘟咕嘟地快喝。你要喝茶可就不行了。一杯熱茶,最好慢慢品嚐。 再說, 喝快了也會燙嗓子呀。
  • I guess you can't really chug a cup of hot tea, but what about a bottle of cool water?
  • 冷的水當然可以了。只要不是熱的,其他飲料都可以一飲而盡嘛。
  • For me, there is nothing better than chugging a glass of milk right after eating a plate of my mom's chocolate chip cookies.
  • 瞧把你給讒得!吃完巧克力餅乾,你要再喝一大杯牛奶,聽起來是真過癮。
  • Oh, I love to chug milk! Sometimes I chug milk right out of the bottle in the fridge.
  • 你從冰箱裡拿出裝奶的瓶子就喝?連杯子都不用呀?
  • That's right. But don't tell my mom. She wouldn't be very happy to know I was chugging milk from the bottle in the fridge.
  • 你真夠嗆!還讓我不要告訴你媽媽。誰看見了都不會高興的。你這麼喝,那別人要喝怎麼辦吶!Larry, 快把你的飲料喝了吧。 我得去上課了。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語。一個是 down,意思是狼吞虎嚥。還有一個是 chug,意思是大口大口地喝,一飲而盡
