HW Now the VOA special English program ‘Words and their Stories’. Today, I will tell about expressions using numbers. Let us start with the number ‘one’. Numbers can be tricky. On the one hand, they are simply numbers. On the other hand, they have meanings. I, for one, use these expressions a lot. Many people consider themselves NO.1, the most important person. They are always looking out for NO.1 and taking care of NO.1. It is as if they are the one and only person on earth. Some person, however, are not so self-centered. My brother is such a person. It is true, no joke. I am not trying to pull a fast one ([美俚]欺骗, 捣鬼) on you.

First, you have to understand that my brother is one in a million. He is such a nice person. All his friends like him. They consider him one of the boys. Recently, my brother had a bad day in the office. It was just one of those days. Nothing went right. So he stopped at a local bar, a drinking place, after leaving work. My brother planed to have a glass of beer with his friends, a quick one ([美俚]匆匆一口喝下去的酒) before he went home. But a quick one turned into one or two(一两个, 几个). And soon those became one too many ([美口]过量的酒). As my brother was leaving, he ordered a last drink, one for the road ([口]临走前的最后一杯酒(以示送行)). His friends became concerned. One by one, they asked him if he was able to drive home safely.

Now, my brother is a wise and calm person, he is at one with himself. He recognizes when he has had too much alcohol to drink. So he accepted an offer for a ride home from a female friend. At one time in the past, my brother had been in love with this woman. She is a great person, kind, thoughtful and intelligent, all good qualities rolled up into one. But sadly, their relationship did not work. He always used to say: One of these days I am going to marry this girl. But that never happened. For one thing, she did not love him as much as he loved her. It was just one of those things (命中注定的事). The situation was regrettable and my brother had to accept. But even now, he considers her the one that got away.

However, they are still friends and because my brother had been kind to her, she felt that one good turn deserver another (善有善报). He was good to her and she wanted to help him in return. So she drove him home. If my brother had driven home from bar that night, his number would have been up. Something bad would have happened. Thankfully, he made it home safely and he and the woman are back to square one (问题回到原态,并没有解决). They are back to where they started: been friends.

 

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do. Two can be as bad as one is the loneliest number since NO.1.

So he stopped at a local bar a drinking place after leaving work. My brother planed to have a glass of beer with his friends, a quick one, before he went to home. But a quick one turned into one or two. And soon those became one to many. As my brother was leaving he ordered a last drink one for the road. His friends became concerned. One by one they asked him if he was able to drive home safely. Now, my brother is a wise and calm person. He is at one with himself. He recognizes when he has had too much alcohol to drunk. So he expected an offer for a ride home from one female friend. At one time in the past my brother had been in love with this woman. She is a great person. Kind, thoughtful and intelligent all good qualities roll up into one. But sadly their relationship did not work. He always used to say, ’one of these days, I’m going to marry this girl.’ But that never happened. For one thing, she did not love him as much as he loved her. It was just one of those things. The situation was regrettable and my brother had to except it. But even now he can consider her the one that got away. However, they are still friends and because my brother had been kind to her. So she felt that one good turn deserves another. He was good to her and she wanted to help him in return. So she drove him home. If my brother had driven home from bar that night, his number would have been up. Something bad would have happened. Thankfully he made it home safely. And he and the woman are back to square one. They are back to where they started, being friends. This VOA special English program words and their stories was written by Jill Moss. I'm Faith Lapidus.

Now, the VOA special English program words and their stories.

 

Today, I will tell about expressions using numbers. Let us start with the number “one”. Numbers can be tricky, on the one hand, they are simply numbers, on the other hand, they have meanings. I for one use the expressions for lot.

 

Many people consider themselves “number one”. The most important person they are always looking out for number one and taking care of number one. It is if they are the one and only person on earth. Some people, however, are not so self-centered. My bother is such a person. It is true, no joke. I am not trying to pull fast one on you. First, you have to understand that my bother is one in a million, he is such a nice person, all his friends like him. They consider him one of the boys.

 

Recently, my bother had a bad day at the office. It was just one of those days nothing went right. So he stopped at a local bar, a drinking place after leaving work. My bother planed to have a glass of beer with his friends. A quick one before he went home. But a quick one turned into one or two. And soon those became one to many. As my bother was leaving, he ordered a last drink, one for the road. His friends became concerned. One by one, they asked him if he was able to drive home safely. Now, my bother was a wise and calm person. He is at one of himself. He recognizes when he has had too much alcohol to drink. So, he accepted an offer for a ride home from a female friend.

 

At one time in the past, my bother has been in love with this woman. She is a great person, kind, thoughtful and intelligent. All good qualities rolled up into one. But suddenly their relationship did not work. He always used to say “one of these days, I am going to marry this girl.” But that never happened. For one thing, she did not love him as much as he loved her. It was just one of those things. the situation was regrettable. And my bother had to accept it. But even now, he considers her the one that got away. However, they are still friends. And because my bother had been kind to her, she felt that one good turn deserves another. He was good to her and she wanted to help him in return. So she drove him home.

 

If my bother drove home from the bar last night, his number would have been up. Something bad would happen. Thankfully, he made it home safely and he and the woman are back to the square one. They are back to where they started being friends.

 

One is the loneliest number that you will never do. Two can be as bad as one is the loneliest number since number one.
