After Getting Home

Home at last. Tonight we have a lot of homework though.

Tom
Are you saying we don’t have time to watch our favorite show tonight? Jane, you know I really don’t like our teacher all that much. He gives far too much homework. He criticizes me in front ofŒeveryone all the time.

Jane
To tell the truth
Ž, I don’t really like him either. He’s kind of boring and not very active. He always looks unhappy too.

TomYes, and he also…

Jane
Do you think we should be talking about him like this behind his back?

Tom
Probably not. After all
he is our teacher. We should try to find something nice to say. If you can’t say something nice you shouldn’t say anything at all.

Jane
I absolutely agree. It’s getting dark. We should finish our homework now.

回家后

简:
终于到家了。不过今晚我们有一大堆作业要做。


你是说我们没时间看最喜欢的电视节目了吗?简,你知道我真的不那么喜欢我们老师。他布置的作业太多了。而且总是在大家面前批评我。

简:
说实话,我也不是很喜欢他。他有点儿乏味而且一点儿也不活跃,看起来总是一副不开心的样子。

对啊,而且他还…

简:你觉得我们应该在背后这样说他吗?


不应该,毕竟他是我们的老师。我们应该找点好的说。如果你不能说点好的,那就别说了。

简:
我完全赞成。天要黑了,我们还是先把功课做完吧。

好吧。我想先冲个澡。累死了

起居室drawing room一词的来源

通常我们回家后就会毫无顾忌地在起居室drawing room的沙发上躺下来因为在外面劳累了一天回到家里终于可以放松放松relax了。

看到这里大家不禁要问,“起居室不是写成living roomsitting room为什么还能写成drawing room

我们知道draw绘画的意思但是drawing room”(起居室却与艺术一点也不相干。drawing room是指接待客人的房间”,也就是客厅起居室”,其英文解释是a room, especially a large room in a large house, where people sit and relax, or entertain guests”,它是一种比较正式的说法。

关于drawing room的来源其背后有个小故事。drawing room这个词源自于withdrawing room。在英国过去有个习惯为了让女士们不受男士吞云吐雾的吸烟之害就要求她们在用餐后待在饭厅旁的另一个房间。也就是要求女士们从饭厅中“退出来”(withdraw),然后男士们就可以尽情地抽烟喝酒、高谈阔论,而不受干扰了。

至于女士们所停留的那个房间本来叫做withdrawing room”,后来就约定俗成地写成drawing room了。
