오늘 토익관련 얘기를 하던 중에 영어 표현에 대한 얘기가 나왔었는데
정말 뒷통수를 맞은 듯한 느낌을 받은 표현이었다.

- 극장에서
'주리기 공원 어른 2장 8시 20분'

저의 대답은요
'쥐라식 팍. 투 어덜트. 에이트 트웨니 플리즈'

정말 교과서에 나올만한 직역이다.

이것을 사용하는 말로 바꾸면
'투 티켓츠 포 쥐라식 팍, 에이트웨니'
듣는 순간 '이거다'라는 느낌이

- 자리가 비었나요?

저의 대답은요
'디스 싯 이즈 어밸러블'

역시 교과서에 나오는 표현이다.

이것을 사용하는 말로 바꾸면
'is the taken?'
완점 가슴을 때리는 표현이 아닐 수 없다.

문법적으로는 맞을 지 몰라도 사람냄새가 난다고나 할까?

요새 개콘에서 어려운 영어를 한국어로 바꾸는 표현도 그렇지만
정말 언어는 사람이 쓰는거니까
한 대목을 인용하면
'옆에서 여자친구가 자꾸 귀찮게 할 때'
- please leave me along. I'm trying to work
이것을 우리말로 고치면

-->(짜증섞인 말투로) 쫌~~~

토요일에 신입사원 오리엔테이션 때문에 양재에서 마을 버스를 탔다.
타고 나서 얼마안있어서 외국인으로 보이는 사람이 앞자리에 앉은 아줌마에게
영어로 역에가려면 어떻게 하냐고 물었다.

내가 듣고있다가
원래 하고 싶은말은
이번 정류장에 내려서 위로 올라가면 된다
(You may get off this stop to go to a station)
go back(?) kkkk

근데 내가 뭐라고 했냐하면
You can take off this stop

anyway they could understand what I mean
but I was shamed.

Sheep are the good samaritans of the Chinese zodiac. They are gentle mannered and on the shy side. Being very sincere they are easily taken by a sob story. Sheep people are compassionate, understanding of others' faults, and quick to forgive.

Sheep like to set their own hours and will not tolerate too much discipline. They are also very offended if they are criticized. They cannot work well under pressure and must be allowed to do things at their own speed. Sheep need somebody to discipline them, thought in order to utilize their talents. They usually find someone to look after and care for them.

Good furtune smiles upon the sheep. They benefit from wills and inheritances. Even in the roughest of times, the Sheep always acquire the basic needs. Sheep get their own way without force or voilence. They have that passive endurance that drives you mad. Eventually they wear you down with their pleas. You just can't break them!

Sheep never come right out and discuss what's bothering them. You pry it out of them bit by bit. When alls else fails, yell at them, and bang things around. They should be impressed and might unfold all their secret woes; then, you can clear the air. The Sheep are family people. They never forget anyone's birthday, and you had better not forget theirs! Sheep worry, too. They wants others to cheer them up and tell them everything will be okey.

Sheep overspend and should avoid dealing with money. They find it hard to be practical and would lovea life of luxury and easy. Ugly things will depress Sheep. They hate to displease anyone especially their loved ones. They will edge around an issue rather than take a firm stand. Difficulties are a delicate issue with Sheep. They are too sensitive and often overreact. Reassure them often.

Romance is a part of the Sheep's being. Moonlight and roses, soft music and candlelight will get them every time. They tend to view the world through rose-colored glasses. Sheep do not usually have to work hard. Good things just happen naturally. They need bright, airy surroundings and excel in creative field. Appreciation of their talents make Sheep glow, and with encouragement, they can go far in life.

My first experience of real winter weather was when I went to Northern Canada. I was used to the kind of snow that falls back home, which quickly turns to brown _(1)_  with all the people walking in it. In fact, most of the time I was growing up, it didn't really snow at all - it was mostly _(2)_  . Otherwise, our winters meant a little bit of white _(3)_  in my garden and occasionally having to drive very carefully on icy roads early in the morning. I had never experienced the _(4)_  and _(5)_  that can paralyze a whole city in less than an hour and close roads completely. However, when the earth finally _(6)_  thaws and all the snow _(7)_  away in spring, everything comes to life again and looks more beautiful than ever.

1. slush
2. sleet
3. frost
4. blizzards
5. snowdrifts
6. thaws
7. melts
