Idioms In Context

上下文中的习语

I go to college in Boston, but my parents now live in Florida. During the summer vacation, I went to visit them, I set out from downtown Boston by bus on Tuesday afternoon. Thursday night, I got off the bus in Florida. I had a lot of trouble falling asleep on the bus, so I was exhausted by the time I arrived at my parents' house. In retrospect, I probably should have just taken a plane to Florida.

我在波士顿上大学,但我父母现在住在佛罗里达。暑假期间,我去看望他们,我周二下午从波士顿市中心乘公共汽车出发。星期四晚上到达佛罗里达。我很难在车上睡着,所以当我到达父母家的时候,我已经筋疲力尽了。回想起来,我可能应该坐飞机去比较好。

After I was in Florida for a few days, I was well rested again. However, I soon got bored. My friends were all in Boston. I decided to get a job. I came across an advertisement for a job at a local restaurant. I filled out an application and got hired right away.

在佛罗里达待几天后,我又得到了充分的休息。然而,我很快就厌倦了。我的朋友都在波士顿。我决定找份工作。我无意中看到一则本地餐馆的招聘广告。我填了一份申请表,马上就被录用了。

On the first day of work, I got up early and got ready. I didn't have to dress up for work, but I did have to wear a uniform. The restaurant made everyone wear a formal white shirt and black shorts. The staff was composed of high school and college students.

第一天上班我起得很早,做好了准备。我不必穿得很正式去上班,但我必须穿制服。餐厅要求每个人都穿正式的白衬衫和黑色短裤。餐厅员工主要是高中生和大学生。

At first, there were no customers, but around noon, the restaurant not crowded. I waited on customers and helped clean off tables. On the whole, it was pretty easy work. It wasn't too busy but it wasn't too slow either.

一开始没有顾客,但到了中午左右餐馆就挤满了人。我招待顾客,帮忙擦桌子。总的来说,这份工作还是很容易的,既不算太忙也不算太闲。

As the lunch crowd started to leave, I stopped at a table where an old man and an old woman were sitting. As I was picking up their empty plates, the old man asked me, "Are you from the north?"

当午餐的人群开始离去时,我在一张桌子前停了下来,那里坐着一位老爷爷和一位老太太。当我正拿起他们的空盘子时,老人问我:“你是北方人吗?”

I said "Yes, sir. I'm from Boston. I guess You could tell right away I was from the north, because of the way I speak. "

我说。“是的,先生。我来自波士顿。我想,从我说话的方式,你一眼就能看出我是北方人吧。”

Oh no. the old woman said. "We have never seen legs as white as yours before."

“哦,不。“老太太说。“是因为我们从来没见过像你的腿这么白的人。”
