JESSICA在北京学汉语,她的中国朋友要是遇到了不知道用美语怎么说的词,就会来请教她。今天是怡茹要问的:抢风头。

YR: Hey Jessica!! 你听说那个大新闻了么?

JESSICA: What? What happened?

YR: 就是上礼拜话剧社的演出啊! Anna完全不顾原来话剧的剧本,使劲抢戏,女主角的风头全被她抢去了! 听说她们俩在后台因此大吵了一架! 对了,这个“抢风头”用美语要怎么说啊?

JESSICA: Hmm...抢风头就是“steal someone's thunder". Steal is spelled s-t-e-a-l; and thunder, t-h-u-n-d-e-r, thunder. Basically, steal someone's thunder means to do something that takes attention away from what someone else has done.

YR: 没错! Anna 把本来属於女主角的戏份都抢去了,She totally stole her thunder! 现在学校里人人都在说这事儿。

JESSICA: Ha! I think Anna is getting her 15 minutes of fame here!

YR: 15 minutes of fame? 出名15分钟?.....这是什么意思?

JESSICA: 15 minutes of fame means that she's only famous for a very short period of time.

YR: 哦...我明白了,这也就是短暂出名的意思吧! 就像上回电视真人秀单身女郎里的女主角,那会儿人人都在谈论她,现在节目结束了,她也就销声匿迹了。

JESSICA: Yep! Reality shows definitely give a lot of people a chance to enjoy their 15 minutes of fame!

YR: 嗯,没错! 听说Anna原来都没被选进剧本,可后来她就一直巴结男主角Andy,这么才慢慢得到角色的!

JESSICA: Hmm. Sounds like she's riding on Andy's coattails! Coattail is spelled c-o-a-t-t-a-i-l, coattail. To ride on someone's coattails means to use someone else's success to get ahead.

YR: 哦,就是趋炎附势的意思喽! So, Anna would not get a role in the drama without riding on the leading man's coattails! 这么说对吗?

JESSICA: Exactly! Now tell me what you've learned today!

YR: 第一:抢风头是steal someone's thunder.

第二,短暂出名可以说15 minutes of fame ;

第三:趋颜附势叫ride on someone's coattails!

I think people should be ashamed to steal someone's thunder.and it't would be fifteen mins of fame for people who want to ride on others' coattails.

THere are someones who like to ride on boss's coattails at every company. Most of employees just would like to do their job best. If oneday, you steal boss's thunder, the day you leave the company is no longer. Boss pays an attention to 15 minutes of fames even.

There are many ways to succeed.but i don't know why so many people want to get the 15 minutes of fames or to succeed only by stealing other's blunder and riding on other's coattails.May be it's the shortest way to be a souccessful man,to get the money and the fame,but it's also the The shameless practice. So i hope that we can realize our dream by ourselves' effort and hardworking.to be ourselves.

Our manager is keen on stealing his employees' thunder so that he can show off in front of the top banana.Though we all feel a little glum , we think it's only 15 minutes of fame and sooner or later, our boss will figure out the manager is just riding on his coattails.

i have remembered the three phrases: 15 mins of fame, ride on someone's coattails, steal someone's thunder. i find it easy to remember some expressions by means of reading stories.
