The next morning
Li: Sho. Sho! Wake up! We slept through our alarm.
Sho: Wha...what time is it?
Li: It's almost eleven o'clock. And I'm taking control of what we do today. Time to hit the shops!
Sho: OK. Do you know where you want to go?
Li: Our guide book says Champs Elysees has everything. Armani, Chanel, Versace, Cartier, you name it.
Sho: Sounds like the perfect place for you, but before we go there, I have one more recommendation.

(续上期)

隔天早上
小莉:小秀,小秀!起来!我们睡过头了。
小秀:现……现在几点?
小莉:快十一点了。而今天由我来决定行程。血拼的时间到了!
小秀:没问题。你知道你要去哪吗?
小莉:观光手册上写香榭里舍大道应有尽有。亚曼尼、香奈儿、凡赛斯跟卡地亚,你想 得到的都有。
小秀:听起来这地方很适合你,但在我们去那之前,我还有一个提议。


重点解说:

★ sleep through 不被……吵醒继续睡。slept through our alarm是指‘睡到超过闹钟响的时间',也就是‘睡过头啦!'
★ take control of 掌控
★ hit (v.) 到达
★ recommendation (n.) 推荐,介绍

  <播放语音>

So the planets kept on dancing to the math-music of the universe, and Lan's moon was admired by all, until one day an evil-minded ice-hearted comet viciously slammed into it, shattering it into a thousand thousand pieces. At that time, Yee was all the way on the other side of the sun and couldn't hear the wails and shouts that rocked Lan through and through. All the nearby planets, who were jealous anyway, made fun of Lan. Lan was so ashamed of what had happened to the moon, so generously given by Yee, that Lan began to dread their next meeting.

此后行星们继续跳着宇宙间有规则的舞蹈,Lan的月亮也一直被大家所羡慕。直到有一天,一颗冷酷恶毒的彗星狠狠地向Lan的月亮撞去,把它砸成了千千万万块碎片。此时Yee一直在太阳的另一面,无法听到Lan痛彻心肺的恸哭和呼喊,而附近所有的行星却因为妒忌而取笑Lan。月亮是Yee慷慨送给的,而今如此遭遇,Lan感到非常愧疚,并且开始害怕再见到Yee了。

must与may/might的比较 (2)

—I wonder why Tom hasn't answered my letter.
—He may/might be ill.
—我不知道汤姆为什么没给我回信。
—他可能生病了。(但也存在其他可能性:说不定他出门了,或者事情太忙无暇写信。)
但假设比尔从来没有人来访问他。如果急救车停在他门口,邻居们会说Bill must be ill(比尔一定得了病了)。这是对于急救车来到他家一事可能做出的唯一解释。
