Go outing 郊游
Go outing with your friends and put your work or troubles aside for a while. This way you can vent the pressure that has collected inside your body.
Ann: It"s ten more miles to the destination.
Ben: Oh, dear! But it looks ten thousand more. My legs don"t seem to be mine now.
Mike: Come on, Ben! Can you see the blue sky and green mountains? And the fresh air! What is to be afraid of if you can enjoy what you can"t get at work?
Ben: Mike, I decide to forget about my work and face up to this challenging trip.
Ann: That"s right, Ben. I"m glad you are man enough. The scenery is so beautiful, and it"s really worth our effort.
Ben: I think so.
Mike: Everything here is new and refreshing and seems to be mixed into one. You can hardly tell who"s who and which is which.
Ann: That"s why I love outing. It makes you feel so close to the nature. Besides, you"ll easily get energetic again.
Ben: Quite right.
1 Mike, I decide to forget about my work and face up to this challenging trip.
face up to = recognize and deal with honestly and bravely 诚实而又勇敢地承认和解决，对付
You must face up to the fact that no one is young forever.
2 ...and it"s really worth our effort.
worth = of value equal to 值，等于......的价值
Four days" car hire costs $80, which is well worth it for the places you"re able to drive to.
Lynn: Ok. Here we are.
Allen: This is really a nice spot for picnics. I"m starving. Let"s eat right away.
Lynn: First things first. You get the food out of the basket, and I"ll build a fire over there.
Allen: Good. Here is the tablecloth. I"ll spread it out on the grass.
Lynn: What food did you bring?
Allen: These are hamburgers and hot dogs, and those are drinks, and chocolate cake. The peanut butter and sauce are in another PE bag.
Lynn: Some premoist towelette too. Boy, you"re really thoughtful.
Allen: What shall we broil first?
Lynn: Hamburgers. Don"t burn it.
Allen: I"ll try not to...it"s ready now. Have one.
Lynn: Thank you. My god, it tastes good. You"re quite a cook.
Allen: Why, thank you. Let"s have a coke, and then go fishing somewhere by the river.
Lynn: That"s a marvelous idea.
1 I"m starving. Let"s eat right away.
right away = now 立刻
Let"s get the car started right away.
2 First things first. 最重要的事情先办。
Don"t worry, your car can be repaired, but first things first, are you sure that you"re not hurt?
3 Boy, you"re really thoughtful.
Boy, that was good!
Look here, boy, this simply won"t do.
May I suggest a camping in the suburb?
Shall we have time for an outing?
We can make a weekend picnic there.
We"d better rent a camper.
Shall we sing and dance round the campfire?
I bet you"ve never seen such beautiful views before.
Boy, you"re really thoughtful.
It"s not bad to go camping during this season.
