 L:嗨,Michael,你上哪儿去呀?

  M: I'm going to meet Jon at the subway. You've met Jon, haven't you?

  L:嗯,是不是上次在一次party上你给我介绍的那个带眼镜的人?

  M: Yes. I want to drag him out to do something. You know, he's such a couch potato.

  L:他是什么?Couch potato? 什么是couch potato? 他爱吃土豆?

  M: No, couch potato is an expression used to describe someone who sits in front of the TV all the time eating junk food, such as potato chips.

  L:噢,原来coach potato是指一个人老坐在电视机前吃零食。这个常用语挺有趣。那couch potato是不是只能指人呀?

  M: Yes, it is only used to describe people, those who are lazy and unmotivated.

  L:噢,只能指人,指那些懒懒散散,没有动力的人。好,下回我就叫我哥哥couch potato。他老是看电视,一看就看到三更半夜,吃的东西撒在地毯上,沙发上,到处都是。
