Stuck in a rut 一成不变
作者：佚名 文章来源：本站原创 点击数： 更新时间：2012-4-8
Larry和李华星期六晚上待在家里，觉得有些无聊，他们会用到两个常用语：stuck in a rut和someone's cup of tea.
LH: Larry, 好无聊啊! 你说干点什么好啊？
Larry: (Distracted) Huh? Uh, yea... that's nice, Lihua.
LH: 什么好好好? Larry! 你又在打电脑游戏啦？哎呀，不要玩儿了！(pulls the plug)
Larry: Hey! I was about to clear that level!
Larry: (Sigh) You're right, Lihua. We haven't really done anything new recently. I guess we've been stuck in a rut.
LH: In a rut？什么意思？
Larry: Being stuck in a rut means to be stuck in a boring routine.
LH: To be stuck in a rut就是生活一成不变。那么，这个rut是什么意思呢？
Larry: A rut is what happens when a wheel rolls over the same place over and over again. Eventually, the wheel will dig a line, or a rut, in the ground.
LH: 我明白了，rut是车轮不断压过同一个地方后留下的印迹。我想，这就比喻一成不变的常规吧。Larry, 我们最近的确有些stuck in a rut，感觉有点平淡无味，你说这是怎么回事呢？
Larry: I'm not sure, Lihua, but we have been together for over a year now. It's relatively normal for couples to find themselves stuck in a rut after being together for a while.
LH: 啊？你觉得是因为咱们在一起时间不算短了，所以生活就变得平平淡淡了？我觉得根本不是这样，We're stuck in a rot because of that stupid computer game! 都怪你天天打线上游戏，不陪我！
Larry: I'll admit I like to play my games, but you remember what happened last weekend, right?
Larry: I wanted to take you out for a nice dinner, but you said you were too tired. We ended up staying home and watching TV all night!
LH: 还说请我吃顿好的？Larry, 你每次请我吃饭都是汉堡和薯条，连吃饭内容都一成不变，难怪我们会stuck in a rut！
Larry: Hmm... we need to find some new things to do that we both like. Otherwise, we might be stuck in this rut forever!
Larry: Aw, you know tennis isn't my cup of tea, Lihua. And besides, it's been so hot out lately...
LH: Your cup of tea? 打网球还要喝茶？你不怕热吗？
Larry: I would drink water, of course! I said "playing tennis is not my cup of tea"...in other words, I don't really enjoy tennis.
LH: 哦，你说playing tennis is not your cup of tea, 意思就是说你不喜欢打网球。那你的cup of tea到底是什么呀？
Larry: I like swimming! How about we start going to the pool? It's always refreshing to take a dip in the pool on a hot day!
LH: 去游泳？可是，游泳不是我的cup of tea。我怕晒黑！Oh, I know! Why don't you take me to the ballet? 我们去看芭蕾舞表演吧！
Larry: The ballet? Uh, that's not my cup of tea, either. I never understood what's going on! It just looks like a bunch of people jumping around on stage, if you ask me.
Larry: Being romantic was never my cup of tea, Lihua. Remember when I sent you flowers for your birthday?
Larry: Heheh. See? No wonder we're in a rut. I'm horrible at being romantic, and we can never agree on anything new to do. Tell you what - let me think about it some more while I finish this last boss in my video game...
LH: 不行！你别想溜！Get us out of this rut, Larry！要不你就别想玩儿电脑了！
Larry: You want us to do something together, right? Our group could use another warrior...
LH: 你想让我和你一起打线上游戏？我可不会！You know video games are not my cup of tea!
Larry: (Sigh). Well, I guess I'll go make myself a real cup of tea and go stare out the window for fun...
今天李华从Larry那儿学到两个常用语，一个是to be stuck in a rut, 表示枯燥，一成不变。另一个是someone's cup of tea, 意思是某人有兴趣干的事。实践证明经常访问无忧英语教育网 www.51education.net ,能迅速提高你的英语学习能力!积沙成塔,不断提高! 本站所提供的所有信息仅供学校课堂教学及英语学习者学习研究之用，其著作权归原作者及媒体所有。
