Donny 在北京学汉语,他的中国朋友要是遇到了不知道用美语怎么说的词,就会来请教他。今天是Jimmy要问的:啤酒肚。

Donny: Jimmy,
天真热! Let's go drink some cold beer! 

Jimmy:
啊?冰啤酒啊,我女朋友不让。

Donny: Why?

Jimmy:
她说我有啤酒肚。But look at my belly, is it really that bad?

Donny:
......I have to say she has a point. You've got a beer belly for sure. 

Jimmy: Beer belly
beer 啤酒,加上 belly, 肚子,beer belly 啤酒肚。这个词真好记。

Donny: Yeah. It's easy to remember.

Jimmy:
那不说 beer belly, 还有其它说法吗?

Donny: Let's see....you can call it a "keg." k-e-g, keg. A keg is a barrel to store beer.

Jimmy: keg
是啤酒桶?你是说我这肚子活生生就是一啤酒桶?

Donny: Don't worry. You can go from keg to six-pack abs if you exercise and eat healthy. 

Jimmy: six-pack abs?
我知道 a-b-s, abs 指腹肌, six-pack 不是半打啤酒么?

Donny: Six-pack abs are the muscles at your midsection.
一边三块,一共六块。

Jimmy:
哦,我明白了,six-pack abs 就是六块腹肌。天啊!从啤酒肚变成六块肌,得做多少仰卧起坐啊!

Donny: I know it's hard, but a lot of people say sit-ups really help them lose their beer bellies. You want your girl to

 

 be happy, right? 

Jimmy: 好,为女朋友高兴,我这就回家做 sit-ups,仰卧起坐!

Donny: Enjoy your workout! But first tell me what you've learned today.

Jimmy:
第一啤酒肚 beer belly, 或者 keg;第二,六块腹肌,叫 six-pack abs;第三,仰卧起坐叫 sit-ups-i-t, sit; u-p, up. sit-up!
