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

Rob
… and me, Rob. Err… thanks for joining me in the kitchen today, Feifei, for the unveiling of my new cake.

Feifei
It’s just a cake, Rob, but if it’s good, I’m happy to try a slice.

Rob
Well, let me get it out of the oven now… Right, there you go. OK. Ta da!

Feifei
Umm… 蛋糕的样子还不错,不过味道怎么样呢?Let’s try it. It’s a bit stodgy, heavy… even lumpy.

Rob
Right. You don’t actually like it, do you? I followed the recipe exactly, although perhaps I forgot to do something to the flour. Oh, I seem to have a memory like a…

Feifei
A sieve.

Rob
That’s it! I didn’t sieve the flour. Ah, that explains the lumps.

Feifei
我的意思是你太健忘——“have a memory like a sieve”。这个表达把人的记性比喻成过滤网,放进去的东西都会漏出来,也就是说一个人容易忘事,记忆力差。Your memory is bad, Rob. You can’t forget things when you’re cooking.

Rob
Well, I’m not the only one. Listen to these examples.

Examples
I’ve been making my own lunch to take to work, but I’ve got a memory like a sieve and I keep leaving it at home!

My husband’s got a memory like a sieve – he keeps going out and leaving the iron switched on.

I’ve got a memory like a sieve – I left the house without my keys this morning and now I’m locked out!

Feifei
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。这集节目中教给大家表达 “have a memory like a sieve” 的意思和用法。我们可以用 “have a memory like a sieve” 来指一个人的记忆力差,十分健忘。Just like flour falling through the sieve that Rob should have used when baking a cake! So are you going to try again, Rob?

Rob
No, I think my baking days are over, but luckily I bought one from the shop just in case.

Feifei
That’s OK. A shop-bought cake will do – so get it out and I’ll put the kettle on.

Rob
Great… err… Oh, now, where did I put it? I know it’s around here somewhere?

Feifei
Memory like a sieve again, Rob?

Rob
Looks like it. I’ve got a lot on my mind, Feifei.

Feifei
Don’t worry. I’ve found it! It’s here in the fridge with the milk.

Rob
Honestly, I’d forget my own name sometimes!

Feifei
Bye, Rob.

Rob
Oh, yes. That’s it!
