Mom and Kim find Sam at the monkey cage
Mom: There you are! We've been looking all over for you, Sam! You didn't go to the checkpoint!
Sam: Umm, I got lost and then this man started talking to me. [man smiles at the mother and then walks away quickly]
Mom: Are you alright? Did he do anything to you?
Sam: No, he just told me a freaky story about a polar bear that tried to eat someone. Maybe I should be more careful in the zoo.
Mom: That's right, Sam. [looks at watch] Oh, I guess we're in time for the feeding.

(续上期)

妈和阿金在猴子笼前面找到山姆
妈妈:原来你在这!山姆,我们到处在找你!你没有去我们约定的地点
山姆:嗯,我迷路了,然后这个男人就开始跟我说话。(男人向妈妈微笑,并迅速走开)
妈妈:你还好吗?他有对你做什么吗?
山姆:没有,他刚刚跟我说了一个北极熊想要吃人的怪故事。也许我在动物园应该更小心一点。
妈妈:没错,山姆。(看看表)喔,我想我们正好赶上喂猴子秀。


重点解说:

★ checkpoint (n.) 检查站。这里指的是妈妈为了怕三人走散,跟山姆和阿金约定的集合地点
★ freaky (a.) 奇特的,怪异的

由ly构成的副词 (2)

特殊情况:

good的副词形式是well。

kindly可作形容词也可作副词。除此以外,以ly结尾的形容词如friendly,likely,lonely等没有副词形式,为了弥补这一缺陷通常使用一个意义相似的副词或副词短语:

likely(形容词) probably(副词)

friendly(形容词) in a friendly way(副词短语)
