263 get into; grubby
LL: I think it is great that you have rented a garden plot, Li Hua, but I don't think I can really get into gardening.
LH: You don't think you can "get into" gardening, Larry? 相信我，一点都不难，你只要跟我一起去，进了花圃就行了。Then you will be in the garden.
LL: Well, I may be in the garden, but that doesn't mean I'll get into gardening. To "get into" something means to really like something or to enjoy doing something.
LH: 噢，原来你说的get into是喜欢的意思。那你说you don't think you can get into gardening。意思就是说你不u会喜欢上园艺了？
LL: Right. I am sorry, Li Hua, because I know how much you get into gardening.
LL: Okay, Li Hua. I'll try it. Maybe I'll learn why you have gotten into gardening.
LL: That sounds nice. Fresh grown vegetables are so much better than the ones in the grocery store.
LH: 那你呢，Larry? What do you get into?
LL: Oh, you know me, Li Hua. I love computers. You know I really get into video games. I could play video games all day long.
LL: Well, every body gets into different things. You get into gardening, and I get into video games.
LL: Yes, and while you can't understand how I can get into video games, Li Hua, I have never understood why you get into blues music. How can you listen to blues music? It just makes me sad.
LL: I wonder if there is something we can both get into.
LH: 我有个主意。We can both "get into" the car, 到花圃去。
LL: "Get into" the car. Very funny, Li Hua!
(Outdoor sounds, Larry and Li Hua are at the garden)
LL: I should have brought some garden gloves. My hands are getting all grubby from digging in the dirt.
LH: Grubby? 我猜grubby肯定是脏的意思。你的手还真是够脏的。
LL: Grubby does mean dirty. Li Hua, my hands are so grubby, I've got dirt under my fingernails. Yuck!
LL: Well, maybe you think so, Li Hua. I'm just glad I wore some grubby, old clothes. Look how grubby the knees of my pants are!
LL: Okay, then I'll stop complaining about being grubby. But, doesn't it bother you, Li Hua?
LH: 不会啊，我喜欢这样。Why don't you like getting grubby, Larry?
LL: I don't think it is that unusual that I don't like getting grubby, Li Hua. But I haven't always been this way.
LL: Oh, when I was a kid, I used to play outside all the time. I would come home grubby from head to toe!
LH: 从头到脚都是土? 那你妈妈肯定不高兴。
LL: No, after I came home from a day of playing outside, she would take me by my grubby little hand and take me straight to the bath tub.
LH: 好了，Larry. 今天就干到这吧，你看见那个工具房了吗？
LL: Grubby old tool shed? Oh, yes, I see it.
LL: Sure, not a problem, Li Hua!
LH: 谢谢你，Larry. I hope you didn't mind getting grubby too much.
今天李华学到了两个常用语。一个是get into, 是喜欢的意思。另一个是grubby, 是脏的意思。
