Larry说好开车来接李华去艺术馆,可是李华等了他好久也不见他来。李华今天会学到两个常用语 spaced和in a jiffy。

(Phone rings)

LH: Hello?

LL: Hi, Li Hua, This is Larry. I am so sorry I am late. I completely spaced that we were going to the museum today.

LH: You spaced going to the museum? 我们要去艺术馆不是航空馆,跟space没有关系!

LL: By "spaced" I meant I completely forgot. Again, I'm really sorry.

LH: 你怎么全忘了呢?我们不是一直说要去看画展吗?

LL: I know, Li Hua. I can't explain how I spaced it. I got busy doing little things at home like laundry and cleaning the kitchen.

LH: 什么?你在忙着洗衣服和打扫厨房?平时不见你干活,怎么今天这么勤快呢?不过别着急, Larry谁都有忘记的时候,包括我在内。

LL: I can't believe it, Li Hua. You are so well organized. I can't imagine you spacing anything.

LH: 我今年就忘了给我母亲寄生日贺卡。 I completely spaced it!

LL: You spaced sending your own mother a birthday card?!

LH: 是啊,真不好意思。 那几天我忙着改学生的作业,把寄卡的事忘得一干二净。Completely spaced it!

LL: Well, that makes me feel a little better about spacing today's trip to the museum.

LH: Larry, 你忘了没关系,现在还来的及。我们还有时间去看展览。

LL: Really? I thought I had the pamphlet for the museum with its closing time, but I seem to have spaced where I put it。

LH: 博物馆的小册子也不知道放在哪里了?你今天怎么了?得了,我上网去查吧! 让我看看...有了,网站上说他们6点关门。

LL: OK, if I don't space anything else, we should have plenty of time to see the exhibit and maybe get some dinner afterwards.

LH: Larry, 千万别忘了把门票带上。Don't space bringing the tickets for the exhibit. 没有票我们就惨了。

LL: Don't worry Li Hua, I won't space the tickets. I've got them right in my pocket. I'll be over soon. Bye! (hangs up)

******

LL: See, I told you I'd be over in a jiffy!

LH: In a jiffy? 你是说很快就到了,是吗?

LL: Exactly, Li Hua. In a jiffy means a very short amount of time.

LH: 对了,你平时要花一刻钟才能到我这里,今天怎么十分钟不到就到了呢? You did make it here in a jiffy.

LL: I tried very hard to get over here in a jiffy, because I felt so bad about spacing our trip to the museum today.

LH: 别再想忘了去参观的事了。我们得马上出发, 不然就没有时间看画展了。 We better get there in a jiffy.

LL: Oh, it won't take long to get there, Li Hua. The museum isn't far. I promise we will be there in a jiffy. Are you ready to go?

LH: 我去拿一下大衣和钱包, 马上就准备好。

LL: While you are getting your coat and purse, I'll check the directions to the museum on the Internet. (computer clicking sounds)

LH: Okay, 我去拿大衣。你在网上查查去博物馆的路线。

LL: The web page isn't coming up. Usually web pages come up in a jiffy.

LH: 是啊,平时网页一点就开,今天真奇怪。 Larry,我们没有时间了, 还是赶快上车吧。

LL: Li Hua, I didn't have lunch because I rushed to get over here. Do you mind if I fix myself a sandwich real quick? I can make one in a jiffy.

LH: Oh, Larry, 实在抱歉,我不知道你还没有吃午饭。你赶快去作sandwich吧,我在这里等你。不过要快噢。Please do it in a jiffy!

LL: I will, and I promise I will also eat it in a jiffy, too!

今天李华学到了两个常用语。一个是spaced, 意思是忘了。还有一个是in a jiffy意思是马上、立刻。
