Idioms in Context

上下文中的习语

One Sunday morning, a puppy showed up in our yard. It stuck around all day, so in the evening I tried to get it to come inside the house. All in all it seemed like a healthy puppy. It was just a little dirty. The puppy was not wearing a collar so we had no idea who it belonged to. It stayed with us for a few days. I even named it "Brando" after my favorite movie star. But my wife criticized me for being selfish. She said, "That puppy belongs to someone and they probably want it back. You have to try and find the owner." Eventually, my conscience got the better of me, and I changed my mind about keeping the puppy. I made a sign describing the puppy and planned to put it up around the neighborhood. My wife looked over the sign.

一个星期天的早晨,一只小狗出现在我们的院子里。它一整天都粘在那里,所以晚上我试着把它弄进屋里。总之,它看起来像一只健康的小狗,只是有点脏。这只小狗没有戴项圈,所以我们不知道它的主人是谁。它和我们呆了几天。我甚至用我最喜欢的电影明星的名字给它命名为“白兰度”。但是我的妻子批评我自私。她说:“那只小狗是某个人的,他们可能想要回它。你必须设法找到失主。”最终,我的良知战胜了我,我改变了养狗的主意。我做了一个描述小狗的标志,打算把它放在附近。我妻子看了看牌子。

Someone who is not the owner may want the puppy. I suggest you cross out the description. Then you'll know the real owners because they will be able to describe the dog.

“不是主人也可能想要这只小狗。我建议你把描述划掉。然后你就会知道狗的真正主人是谁,因为他们能够描述狗的样子。”

I changed the sign to read, "Found: One puppy." Then I put our phone number at the bottom of the sign. That evening, we got a call. A young woman was on the phone. She said, "I'm calling in regard to the puppy you found." She described the puppy exactly, so we knew it was hers.

我把牌子改成“找到一只小狗”。然后我把我们的电话号码写在牌子的底部。那天晚上,我们接到一个电话。一位年轻的女士正在接电话。她说:“我打电话是为了你找到的小狗。”她把小狗描述得很清楚,所以我们知道那是她的。

The young woman came to our house in less than an hour. When she saw the puppy. she smiled and burst out, "Oh, Lucy! It's so good to see you again!"

不到一个小时,那个年轻女人就来到了我们家。当她看到小狗的时候。她笑了笑,突然说道:“噢,露茜!再次见到你真是太好了!”
