Now, the VOA Special English program WORDS AND THEIR STORIES.
Last week, I told about the number one.
Today, I will tell about expressions using other numbers.
Some problems are difficult to solve.
But there are a lot of number expressions that can help.
For example, if we put two and two together,
we might come up with the right answer.
We know that two heads are better than one.
It is always better to work with another person to solve a problem.
Sometimes there are no two ways about it.
Some problems have only one solution.
You cannot be of two minds over this.
But with any luck, we could solve the problem in two shakes of a lamb's tail.
We could have our answers quickly and easily.
Sometimes we can kill two birds with one stone.
That is, we can complete two goals with only one effort or action.
But we must remember that two wrongs don't make a right.
If someone does something bad to you, you should not do the same to him.
If you are going out with your girlfriend, or boyfriend,
you do not want another friend to go along on your date.
You can just say to your friend: two's company, three's a crowd.
When I was a young child in school, I had to learn the three R's.
These important skills are reading, writing and arithmetic.
These three words do not all start with the letter "R."
But they have the sound of "R."
My teachers used to give three cheers when I did well in math.
They gave praise and approval for a job well done.
Some of my friends were confused and did not understand their schoolwork.
They were at sixes and sevens.
In fact, they did not care if they finished high school.
They saw little difference between the two choices.
Six of one, half a dozen the other ? that was their position.
But they were really happy when they completed their studies
and graduated from high school.
They were in seventh heaven.
They were on cloud nine.
Nine times out of ten, students who do well in school find good jobs.
Some work in an office doing the same things every day at nine-to-five jobs.
You do not have to dress to the nines,
or wear your best clothes, for this kind of work.
Last year, one of my friends applied for a better job at her office.
I did not think she would get it.
I thought she had a hundred to one shot at the job.
Other people at her office thought her chances were a million to one.
One reason was that she had been caught catching forty winks at the office.
She slept at her desk for short periods during the day.
But her supervisor appointed her to the new job at the eleventh hour
-- at the very last minute.
I guess her lucky number came up.



[参考译文]
[00:10.97]这里是美国之音慢速英语词汇掌故节目
[00:17.87]上周我们谈到了关于数字1的短语
[00:21.71]今天,我们将说说其他数字的短语
[00:28.08]一些问题难以解决
[00:31.97]但是很多数字相关短语可以有所帮助
[00:36.94]例如,如果我们根据事实推理
[00:41.83]我们就能得出正确答案
[00:44.72]我们知道,人多智广
[00:49.34]通常情况下,解决问题时与他人合作比自己单干更好
[00:55.16]有时候别无选择
[01:00.15]一些问题只有一个解决办法
[01:03.98]你就不能犹豫不决
[01:07.32]但幸运的话,我们能迅速(two shakes of a lamb's tail)解决问题
[01:15.32]找到最好的答案
[01:19.16]有时,我们能一箭双雕
[01:25.43]也就是说,我们通过一次努力或者行动就能完成两个目标
[01:32.40]但是我们要牢记负负不得正
[01:38.53]如果有人冒犯了你,你不应该以牙还牙
[01:44.82]如果你想和男(或女)朋友出去约会
[01:50.74]不想另一个朋友参加
[01:56.32]你可以对这个朋友说:“俩人结伴,三人添乱(two's company, three's a crowd)。”
[02:02.24]当我还在上学的时候,我必须学习三个“R”
[02:09.91]这三个重要技能就是阅读,写作和算术
[02:17.67]三个词并不都以字母R开头
[02:22.11]但是他们的发音都有R
[02:26.03]当我数学表现不错的时候,我的老师通常会为我欢呼三声
[02:31.92]这是人们对一项做的好的工作给予的表扬和肯定
[02:37.08]我有一些朋友被弄得晕头转向,不清楚自己的功课
[02:44.24]他们简直就是乱七八糟
[02:47.18]实际上,他们不在乎是否读完高中
[02:52.27]他们认为两者
[02:57.24]是半斤八两,没有区别 -- 这就是他们的立场
[03:03.42]但是,当他们完成学业
[03:08.59]高中毕业时非常高兴
[03:11.14]简直欣喜若狂
[03:14.22]简直欣喜若狂
[03:17.41]在学校表现好的学生十有八九(Nine times out of ten)找到了不错的工作
[03:25.10]每天朝九晚五(nine-to-five)的在办公室做着同样的工作
[03:33.90]做这些工作
[03:37.75]你不必衣着光鲜
[03:42.22]去年,我一个朋友申请了她办公室一个更好的工作
[03:49.55]我认为她肯定得不到这个工作
[03:52.43]这种可能性微乎其微
[03:57.26]她办公室的其他人也觉得几乎不可能
[04:03.12]中一个原因是她在办公室打盹
[04:10.25]被抓现行
[04:14.89]但是她的主管在最后时刻
[04:21.71]把这项新工作指派给了她
[04:24.16]我猜她是中彩了
