Feifei
大家好,我是冯菲菲。欢迎收听 BBC 英语教学的《地道英语》节目。

Neil
…and I’m Neil. Hi, Feifei, what are you up to?

Feifei
Hi Neil. Oh, I’m just ironing a few clothes.

Neil
That’s a big pile of clothes. 

Feifei
I’m going on holiday! 我要去度假了,所以得在出发前把衣服熨得平平整整的才行。

Neil
You’re even ironing your shorts!

Feifei
Nothing like perfectly ironed shorts.

Neil
Nah, that’s long, Feifei!

Feifei
They’re shorts – not long! Neil 说熨衣服这件事很“长 long”,可是我在熨短裤啊。

Neil
Haha, very funny. You know what I mean. 

Feifei
没错,其实我知道这个单词的意思。这是“long”的英式俚语用法,我们常在非正式的场合听到它,人们常用 long 来形容一项任务“枯燥,毫无意义”。

Neil
Exactly. Ironing is long. It’s dull and takes forever.

Feifei
That’s because you do it all wrong. Here, let me show you, while we play these examples.

Examples
I can’t believe you’re cleaning the whole house. That’s long, bro. Come out and enjoy the sun.

A: Why don’t you stick with your diet?
B: Dieting is long. I just eat what I want and go to the gym instead. 

Neil
You know, Feifei, you’re right. Ironing isn’t so bad.

Feifei
Just you wait. You’ll be ironing your socks before you know it.

Neil
So, where are you off to on your holiday?

Feifei
我要用整整五个月的时间去环游世界。I’m travelling around the world for five months! 怎么样,听起来不错吧?

Neil
Wow, five months! That’s long.

Feifei
Aha – but do you mean long as in boring?

Neil
Of course not. Five months is a long holiday. Have a great trip!

Feifei
You can do all my ironing when I get back.

Neil
So long, Feifei. Bye! 

Feifei
Bye.
