Feifei
大家好!歡迎收聽 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。我是馮菲菲。

Roy
…and me, Roy.

Feifei
我們可能聽起來與以往有些不同,這是因為在新冠肺炎疫情爆發期間,我們無法在平時的錄音間錄製節目。

Roy! 你早上在聊天群裡發的照片,我看到了!唉,我不知道你有一輛豪華跑車,還有一棟帶大游泳池的豪宅。Roy, you need to stop flexing!

Roy
What do you mean 『flexing’? I’m not exercising my muscles at all, right now!

Feifei
Not flexing your muscles, Roy. 我的意思是你在炫耀!「Flexing」 這個詞在現代英語中被用來描述某人大肆招搖、顯擺,也就是我們常說的 「愛炫耀的」。

Roy
I’m not showing off. I just want everyone to be aware of my amazing lifestyle! I’m thinking about getting some dolphins to go in my pool.

Feifei
Roy,現在你可不光是在炫耀,你這是開始瞎編了!你壓根就沒有一輛跑車,也沒有一個泳池,更沒有一套豪宅。Not only do I think you’re flexing, but you’re totally exaggerating just to impress people!

Roy
Are you impressed?

Feifei
No, not at all. Anyway, let’s listen to these examples.

Examples
He’s always flexing on social media, – showing these glamorous pictures of his holidays!

People who flex are so annoying! It’s just showing off.

She can’t stop flexing about her new house, but it’s actually not that nice.

Feifei
這裡是BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。我們在這期節目中教給大家單詞 「flexing」 在現代英語中的意思和用法。如果一個人在炫耀一些奇怪或俗氣的東西的時候,其他人可能會用這句話來作出評論:「Weird flex, but OK.」

Roy
Well, I’m sorry if you think I was showing off. I just want people to think I’m cool! That’s all.

Feifei
You don’t need to flex for people to like you! Everyone already does think you’re cool! It’s because you’re an amazing person like me. But, talking about amazing things: have you seen my new phone?

Roy
Weird flex, but OK.

Feifei
What? I didn’t flex! Plus, why is it weird?

Roy
Well, it’s not a cool phone. I’ve never even heard of the brand, and the colours look like someone vomited rainbows.

Feifei
Well, I like it. Wait, what are those car keys on your desk? Do you really have a sports car?

Roy
Of course, I do – and a mansion and a pool! The only reason I shared that photo was because I wanted to invite people to my house party!

Feifei
Really? Can I come to your party?

Roy
Sure, as long as you don’t flex about that horrible phone.

Feifei
OK, I won’t talk about my amazing phone. Bye, Roy.

Roy
Bye!
