A wet weekend 无聊的时光

64006a47a40a1ad01dd42a.jpg

内容简介

菲菲和 Rob 正在录音间里就两人的周末过得怎样聊天。虽然上周末连一滴雨也没下,但 Rob 却说他度过了一个“wet weekend 湿漉漉的周末”,这是什么意思呢?听节目,学习一个用来形容人或经历“很无聊”的英语说法。

(关于台词的备注: 请注意这不是广播节目的逐字稿件。本文稿可能没有体现录制、编辑过程中对节目做出的改变。)

Feifei
大家好,欢迎收听 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。我是冯菲菲。

Rob
Hello, it's Rob here. Good weekend, Feifei?

Feifei
Amazing! 周末天气特别好,所以我去了海边。And you were going camping, weren't you?

Rob
I was but it turned out to be a bit of a wet weekend.

Feifei
“A wet weekend 一个潮湿的周末”?你是说一整周末都在下雨,所以去野营受影响了?That's unlucky – the sun was out all weekend here.

Rob
Well, the weather was fine – but I just didn't go. The car broke down again so I stayed at home, doing DIY all weekend – boring!

Feifei
So a wet weekend doesn't have to involve rain?

Rob
Nope. A wet weekend means a boring and disappointing time.

Feifei
我明白了。表达 a wet weekend 其实与“天气”和“weekend 周末”都没什么关系,人们用它来描述“一个无聊的经历或令人讨厌、无聊的人”。And it doesn't always have to be at the weekend, either.

Rob
Correct. The phrase just means the situation is boring just like a wet weekend is. Or as you said, you can also use the expression to describe boring people. Here are some examples.

Examples
That was a wet weekend. My friends were coming to stay but cancelled at the last minute.

My cousin's a bit of a wet weekend. He's got no personality and nothing to say.

I had to do my accounts yesterday. It was like a wet weekend in a paint factory!

Feifei
所以,“a wet weekend 雨天的周末”这个表达在英语里的实际含义就是“无聊的时光”或“讨厌、无聊的人”。Well, I'm glad to say that you're not a wet weekend, Rob. I like your sense of adventure, so when are you going camping again?

Rob
Next weekend.

Feifei
Oh, really? Have you seen the weather forecast?

Rob
No.

Feifei
Rain all weekend. Oh, what's wrong? 你现在的表情看起来可是 a wet weekend!

Rob
A face like a wet weekend? You mean I look unhappy? Well I'm not, if it rains, I'm coming round to yours for dinner!

Feifei
Oh, no. Bye.

Rob
Bye.
