[ 英語發燒句 ] Part-51


274. "不用捶胸頓足"

B. Stop kicking yourself. It's not the end of the world.


275. "別搞砸了"
A. I need to buy the plane tickets for our vacation soon.
B. Don't drop the ball on this one. It is high season, and the cheap tickets will sell out fast.


276. "他被當成耳邊風"
A. Did you tell your husband that it would be a risky bet to invest in that company?
B. I did, but it fell on deaf ears. The stocks we own are now almost worthless.


277. "別拿我出氣"
A. Mom yelled at me for not cleaning the kitchen. You used the kitchen too, but she said nothing to you.

278. "非常時期需要非常手段"

279. "大做文章"
A. Did you hear about the latest scandal that politician is involved in?
B. Of course! The press is having a field day with it.

Note. field day 表示 "重要活動的日子; 大好時機; 令人相當愉快的時間", have a field day 可用來指某人可以盡情, 肆意地做事, 而所做的事可能會傷害其他人.
