JOMO 錯失的快樂

你有沒有想過去關掉手機,不參加社交活動,一個人靜靜?你是不是有時就想一個人呆在家裡,讀書、看電視、發呆,而不願去參加聚會活動?在這期節目中,菲菲和 Roy 將介紹一個描述這種感覺的短語。

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.

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期間,我們無法在平時的錄音間錄製節目。

在這期節目中,我們要給大家介紹的這個短語通常被用於鼓勵人們享受私人時間,不花大量時間奔跑於社交場合。Roy, I haven’t seen you posting much on social media today.

Roy
No, I decided not to spend my time on social media because I wanted to play some video games!

Feifei
Ah, JOMO!

Roy
What on earth is JOMO?

Feifei
JOMO 是 FOMO 的反義詞,也就是 「the joy of missing out」,錯失的快樂。You are enjoying playing video games while not posting on social media.

Roy
I didn’t know you wanted to see my posts?

Feifei
Roy, no one wants to see all those pictures of you and your dog! Let’s hear these examples.

Examples
Climbing a mountain and not checking my emails was pure JOMO.

I didn’t go to the restaurant last night with everyone from work. I had more fun staying at home watching a film. That’s JOMO.

I’m going to spend a week not checking social media. I’m going to do other things like listen to music. JOMO!

這裡是 BBC英語教學的 「地道英語」 節目。我們正在討論 「JOMO」 的意思和用法。「JOMO」 是 「joy of missing out」 的縮寫,這個短語可以用來描述某人樂得自在的生活狀態。這類人通常拒絕參加無意義的社交活動,也不願忙於在社交平台上留言、點贊、關注他人的生活。

Roy
So, what are your JOMOs, Feifei? What things do you like to do instead of going out?

Feifei
Well, listening to music, watching videos of the opera while eating a lettuce. You know, normal things.

Roy
You eat a lettuce while watching opera? That’s very specific. I’m not sure that’s everyone’s idea of a good time.

Feifei
Eating lettuce keeps me healthy and I love singing opera. It’s better than playing video games.

Roy
Umm… I don’t agree – but I suppose everyone has different JOMOs. Oh, if you like singing opera, will you sing some for us?

Feifei
One day, Roy, but not today!

Roy
OK, I’m looking forward to it!

Feifei
Bye.

Roy
Bye.
