不明白为什么用黄瓜来形容cool guy......问了三次,Cucumber?Are you sure!?!..........为什么Cucumber就Cool了.....

1. 来个最诡异的:

He's cool as a cucumber!

Cucumber 可以用来形容A Pretty Cool Guy!穿的cool,说话cool,遇事沉着冷静临危不乱.....于是他就是cool as a CUCUMBER!!!(也可以说一个人退烧了,体温不高)


2. 来个最最常见的吧.....大家应该都听别人用过这个词!

BANANA(S)

用法一:banana (单数)

He's top banana around here. (Leader的意思,管事儿的那个)

用法二:bananas(复数)

She went bananas when I told her the news.

(go bananas 有crazy 的意思, 这个听见的频率最高啦)


3. 另一个形容“抓狂”的词,同样也很常见

Jack went nuts (复数)because his car got a flat tire. (go nuts:疯了疯了)


4. 这个全世界都知道的~

Don't be so angry. You know it's just sour grapes.

(这个不用解释啦,伊索寓言里那个《狐狸与葡萄》的故事——酸葡萄心理: Jealous!)


5.这个太形象了~嘿嘿嘿

He's not smart at all. He's a real pea brain. (呵呵呵自己想象吧,一个人的脑子只有豌豆大..........是有多笨~)


6.这个....好优雅的骂人~

She was so rude to us. I'm telling you, she's a real peach!

(Peach 其实就是Bitch比较婉转的说法啦~ 就像把Shit说成shoot 一样,没有罪恶感....)

当然bitch也好peach也好,都是形容比自己漂亮的女人哈哈

所以桃子是种性感的水果~

还记得《变脸》里面凯奇的台词么:“You know, I can eat a peach for hours...”

还有《我心狂野》里:“Take a bite of Peach!”

自己想(he)象(xie)吧.........................


7.这个应该不用解释了吧~

He doesn't do anything all day. He's a real couch potato!


8.这个很可爱!

She's the apple of her father's eye. /She's the apple of my eye.

eye用单数哦——apple是来形容“是某人的最爱”“某人最珍惜、最珍贵的那个人” 只形容女生。。。。应该...基友...也是...可以吧~


9. 经典谚语了

Life isn't always a bowl of cherries. 生活不会总是一帆风顺的!

(a bowl of cherries,开心的事)


10.这个也挺形象的~

I don't know beans about fixing a car. (这个句子的意思是“对某某事情一无所知”,豆子很小嘛...... 当然这个句子最常用的句型应该是这样的:I don't know SHIT about fixing a car. 哈哈哈)


11.泡菜吃起来真是五味俱全啊~

What a predicament(bad situation)! I've never been in such a pickle!

(pickle 泡菜 可以用来形容 遇到麻烦,身处困境,被各种酸甜苦辣包围着~)


12.来个文艺的结尾吧....

This car's a real lemon. (lemon 棘手的事情)

喜欢这句话:When life gives you lemons,then,make lemonade!

有时候会发现身边只剩下了酸柠檬...可以艰难的啃着勉强咽下;可以假装视而不见,任其腐朽。

也可以做一杯柠檬汁。用尽力气去挤,找遍方法去捏。哪怕指甲嵌入手心,哪怕十指麻木无力....唯有这样才能成就一杯美味
