VOA盛行美语 Unit 39: FLIP OUT / OFF MY BACK
M: Man, last night I just vegged out in front of the TV all night.
L: 你说什么? 你说你在电视机后面vegged out? 是不是说你在电视机后面吃生菜？
M: No, no, no It doesn"t have anything to do with vegetables! To veg out, V-E-G O-U-T, means to sit around and do nothing.
L: 噢，原来如此。"to veg out"意思是说鸿鹄之志，呆坐在那里。那你干吗不进来呢?
M: I was supposed to go out with some friends, but I was too tired after being at work all day. That"s why I ended up vegging out in front of the TV all day.
L: 啊，原来你是太累了，昨晚你除了呆坐在家里，什么也没干。那么veg out 和英语外面另外一个描述：老是坐在电视机前的人是个couch potato一不一样呢?
M: Yes, it is similar to being a couch potato. However, if you are vegging out, that does not necessarily mean you are watching TV or eating like a couch potato does.
L: 那样的话，要是我去了公园，呆坐在那儿，啥事也没干, 那还能不能说我在公园里vegging out呢?
M: No, if you veg out you usually do so at home. You may be reading, listening to music, watching TV or just sitting there. Basically, your are not thinking of anything very complicated.。
L: 所以说要是你veg out的话，通常都是赋闲在家呆坐的。假如你累了一天，或许不断辛劳地在做一件事，看来你多半会翘起二郎腿，什么事也不做，休闲休闲了。
M: Yes, that"s true. People often veg out after a long day of working or studying. Sometimes, they veg out when they should be working or studying, but then don"t feel like it.
L: 噢，这样的话，听起来如同是当一集体该做某件事，却投闲置散，拖到当前再去做，那就是veg out了。
M: Yeah, you can also say"vegged"for short, as in "I totally just vegged last night in front of the TV."
M: Usually, I do only have to work from Monday through Friday. But my supervisor has really been in my face about getting this project done. I needed to get it done by Monday, so I decided to come in over the weekend.
L: 我懂得，你是说你的领导不断在逼着你做完你的工作。可是你是怎样说的？ In my face? 那是什么意思啊？
M: To say that my supervisor was "in my face" means that he has been giving me a lot of pressure about finishing the project. Just imagine someone who is standing close to your face, demanding that you finish something.
L: 要是你说某人是in your face的话，听起来可不是什么坏事。像是他一直地在提示你该做什么事。看来你的领导是个很难处的人啊。
M: Actually, he is not that bad. I really like him as a person. He is just very demanding when it comes to finishing work on time. He has an "in your face" personality.
L:这样说来，你也能够说某人有"in your face"的共性呐。
M: Yes, that means they have a very aggressive, direct personality. Someone like that usually doesn"t care what other people think about their ideas.
M: You"re right, it"s not a very nice thing to say about someone. You probably shouldn"t tell someone directly that you think they have been in your face about something.
L: 谈到"in my face",大太阳正照在我脸上，可真把我晒得够呛，我们到里边儿去找个阴凉中央吧。
M: Okay, how about getting some ice cream? There"s an ice cream store right over there.
明天迈可和李华一块儿去买货色，李华学了两个新词儿："veg out"和"in my face"."veg out"是说什么事也不做，齐全轻松一下；"in my face"是一种平易近人的态度或许共性。
