一、课文原文

lesson 141 sally’s first train ride

last week, my four-year-old daughter, sally, was invited to a children’s party. i decided to take her by train. sally was very excited because she had never traveled on a train before. she sat near the window and asked questions about everything she saw. suddenly, a middle-aged lady got on the train and sat opposite sally.

“hello, little girl,” she said. sally did not answer, but looked at her curiously.

the lady was dressed in a blue coat and a large, funny hat. after the train had left the station, the lady opened her handbag and took out her powder compact. she then began to make up her face.

“why are you doing that?” sally asked.

“to make myself beautiful,” the lady answered. she put away her compact and smiled kindly.

“but you are still ugly.” sally said. sally was amused, but i was very embarrassed!

【义】

embarrass是动词,主要表示“使尴尬;使窘迫”。如:

the teacher always embarrasses the students.那位老师总是使学生们局促不安。

我不喜欢在公开场合演说,太难为情了。

she was embarrassed when they asked her age.

他们问她的年龄时,她窘得很。

注意句中的opposite,常用作形容词,主要表示“相反的;对面的”。如:

black and white are opposite.

黑与白是截然相反的。
