Feifei
大家好,歡迎來到 BBC 英語教學的《道地英語》節目。我是馮菲菲。唉,Rob,你能不能注意點兒?Can we have your attention please, Rob?

Rob
Err, oh right then. Hello, I’m Rob.

Feifei
Rob, could you take your feet off the table please!

Rob
Oh, alright then, Feifei. Do I have to present this programme?

Feifei
Why, what’s wrong?

Rob
Well, I’ve done so much work already and according to my watch, I should be having a coffee break now.

Feifei
你瞎說!明明是因為昨晚出去玩兒了,很晚回家,所以你才這麼無精打采的!You know, there’s a phrase to describe your condition.

Rob
Oh yes. Overworked? Energetic?

Feifei
正好相反!形容你最恰當不過的表達就是“bone idle 懶極了”!這個表達就像我們漢語裡說的“一個人懶到骨頭裡了,懶到家了,懶到極點了”。

Rob
It’s a great phrase Feifei, but that doesn’t describe me – look, I’ve just moved my little finger.

Feifei
Ha, very funny! I think we had better hear some more examples while you move the rest of your body.

Examples
The doctor has told my brother to do more exercise, but he won’t do it, he’s bone idle.

You’re bone idle – you’ve been at home all day and you’re still in your pyjamas!

My boyfriend’s bone idle – he won’t even get off the sofa to answer the phone.

Feifei
表達 bone idle 很形象地用“骨頭都閒著”來描述一個人極其地懶惰。Hey Rob, I hear it’s Dan’s birthday today and he brought a cake in for us all to share.

Rob
Cake! I love cake – great, come on! Let’s go and get some before it all eaten.

Feifei
Now you are moving! But you’re not going anywhere until you’ve finished this programme.

Rob
Come on then, tell me what to say.

Feifei
Just read this script.

Rob
OK, let me see. Hold on, the script says you’re about to say ‘it’s not Dan’s birthday, it’s a joke.’

Feifei
Sorry Rob, it is a joke, but it did stop you from being bone idle!

Rob
Right, that’s it. I’m not going to do any more work for the rest of the day.

Feifei
No change there! Rob, I’ve got a new name for you.

Rob
Oh yeah, what’s that?

Feifei
Lazybones 懶骨頭! 

Rob
You’re cruel.

Feifei
I am a bit, aren’t I? Bye. 

Rob
Bye.
