When I was a kid, I used to think that pork chops and karate chops were the same thing.当我是小孩子的时候,我曾经认为“猪排骨”和“空手劈”是一样的。I thought they were both pork chops.我以为它们都是猪排的意思。And because my grandmother thought it was cute,而我的奶奶觉得我这样很可爱,and because they were my favorite, she let me keep doing it.而因为我喜欢这些,所以她并没有纠正我。Not really a big deal. One day, before I realized fat kids are not designed to climb trees,这也不是什么大事。有一天我去爬树,我才知道胖子是不适合爬树的,I fell out of a tree and bruised the right side of my body.我从树上摔了下来,身体的右侧擦伤了。I didnt want to tell my grandmother about it我不想告诉我的奶奶,我怕惹麻烦,because I was scared Id get in trouble for playing somewhere I shouldnt have been.因为本来去我那个地方玩就被认为是不应该的。A few days later, the gym teacher noticed the bruise, and I got sent to the principals office.几天之后,体育老师发现了我身上的伤痕,我被带到了校长办公室,From there, I was sent to another small room然后又从那里被转到一个小房间,with a really nice lady who asked me all kinds of questions about my life at home.一个很和蔼的女士问了我很多家里的事情。I saw no reason to lie. As far as I was concerned, life was pretty good.我实话实说。当时我感觉这一切都还蛮好的。I told her, whenever Im sad, my grandmother gives me karate chops.我告诉她,每当我不开心的时候,我的奶奶就会给我“空手劈”。This led to a full-scale investigation, and I was removed from the house for three days,这引发了一次全面的(反虐待儿童)调查。我被从家里转移出来,被托管了三天,until they finally decided to ask how I got the bruises.直到他们问起我身上的淤青是怎么来的。News of this silly little story quickly sp through the school,这个愚蠢的故事很快就在学校传开了,and I earned my first nickname: Porkchop. To this day, I hate pork chops.我有了第一个外号:“猪排”。时至今日,我都讨厌听到“猪排”这个词。Im not the only kid who grew up this way,很多小孩的成长环境都跟我相似,surrounded by people who used to say that rhyme about sticks and stones,周围都是一些成天舞刀弄欺负别人的人,as if broken bones hurt more than the names we got called, and we got called them all.仿佛肉体的伤痛比侮辱的外号带给我们的痛苦更多,而我们同时感受到了这些痛苦。201611/480389美国习惯用语-第68讲:to kick up one's heelsto kick off 大家大概都看到过一匹年轻的俊马在宽阔的草原上兴高烈地奔跑的情景吧!这是一幅很美丽的图象,马的前腿往前伸展,后腿很有节奏地往上踢。美国有一个俗语就是建筑在这一形像之上的。这个俗语就是:to kick up one's heels。To kick up one's heels,从字面上来解释就是:把后脚往上踢。但是,实际上to kick up one's heels是用来形容人们到外面去寻欢作乐,就像马在草原上奔跑一样。比如说,有两个人在办公室里说话,其中之一说: 例句-1: "How about coming out with us Wednesday night? We're all going to take Bill Glover out to dinner. Then later we'll drop into a few night spots. It's Bill's last chance to kick up his heels, you know--he's getting married the next morning." 这人说:“星期三晚上跟我们一起出去玩,怎么样?我们大家一起请比尔格洛弗出去吃晚饭。然后,我们再到几个像夜总会那样的地方去玩。这是比尔到外面去寻欢作乐的最后一次机会了,你知道,他第二天上午就要结婚了。” To kick up one's heels并不一定是年轻人的事,上了年纪的人有时也想到外面去轻松轻松。下面的例子就很能说明问题: 例句-2: "My mother and dad are over sixty, but they still like to go out once in a while to have dinner and do a little dancing and kick up their heels. Of course, they go home a lot earlier than they used to." 这个人说:“我的爸爸和妈妈已经六十多了,但是他们有时还是喜欢到外面去吃晚饭、跳跳舞,高兴高兴。当然罗,他们现在回家的时间要比以前早多了。” 下面我们还要给大家介绍一个和kick这个字有关的美国俗语。这个俗语是:to kick off。To kick off的意思是一项活动,或一个计划的开始。To kick off原来是用在足球比赛的。每次比赛开始都是由一个球队把球踢到对方球队去。可是现在这个俗语几乎可以用在任何方面,意思是:开始。美国人经常用to kick off来表示竞选活动的开始。有时,你可以从电台上听到这样的报道: 例句-3: "Last night Michael Smith kicked off his campaign for the U.S. Senate with a speech here promising lower taxes and a bigger budget for schools and more help to the farmers." 这则消息说:“昨晚,迈克尔斯密斯在这儿发表讲话,作为他竞选美国参议员竞选活动的开始。他在讲话中向选民们保降低税收,增加学校经费,并给予农民更多的帮助。” 下面这个例子是学生在准备他的暑期活动。他说: 例句-4: "Now that my exams are all finished, I'm going to kick off the summer vacation by going down to Ocean City for a week to get some sun, some surf and a chance to look at the girls." 这个学生说:“现在考试已经全部结束,我要先到欧欣城去玩一个星期,去晒晒太阳,在海上玩冲浪,还可以看看那里的姑娘们。这就作为我暑假的开始。” 我们现在来复习一下今天讲的两个美国人经常用的俗语。第一个是:to kick up one's heels。To kick up one's heels是指到外面去寻欢作乐,高兴高兴。我们今天讲的第二个俗语是:to kick off。To kick off是指开始一项活动,或一个计划。 /200601/3023037 free time activities Words Paint dance sing draw cook shop write Phrases Chat online Surf the net Play football/soccer/baseball/basketball Go swimming/golfing Do tai qi Pool Computer games Tennis Ice skating Bowling Taekwondo Badminton Ping pong Hockey Running Hiking Exercise Guiter An instrument Mah jiang Horseback riding Skiing Housework Beginner A : hi, my name is Sylvia.

Sadly, that wasnt meant, that wasnt to be. 我做这个决定并非心血来潮,我原本打算在一次成功的世界杯后再宣布这个决定。但令人伤心的是,这未能如愿。This decision has been, has been the most difficult of my career to date. 到目前为止,这是我职业生涯里最难做出的一个决定。But after discussing it with my family and the closest to me, I feel that the time is right. 但在和我的家人和密友商量过后,我觉得现在是时候这么做了。201608/461171
