Now the Voa special English program words and their stories.

today's program is all about eyes. When they come to relationships, people's eyes can be a window into their hearts. This means their eyes can tell a lot about how they feel.

We will tell a story about a man and a woman who are teachers at the same school. The woman is interested in the man. She uses many methods to catch his eys or get him to notice her. Once he sets eyes on her or sees her, she might get him interested in her by acting playful. In other words, she might try to make eyes at him, or give him the eye.

Let us suppose that this man gets the heat between the eyes. In other words, the woman has a strong effect on him. He wants to spend time with her and get to know her better. He asks her out on a date. She's so happy that she may walk around for days with stars in her eyes. She's extremely happy because this man is the apple of her eyes--a very special person. She might tell him he is the only person she wants or I only have eyes for you.

On their date, the couple might eat a meal together at a restaurant. If the man is really hungry, his eyes might be bigger than his stomach. He might order more food than he can eat. When his food arrives at the table, his eyes might pop out. He might be very surprised by the amount of the food provided. He mihgt even not believe his eyes. In fact, all eyes would be watching him if he ate all the food. This might even cause eyebrows to rise. People might look at the man with disapproval.

During their dinner, the couple might discuss many things. They might discover they see eye to eye or agree on many things. They share the same beliefs and opinions. For example, they might agree every crime or injury should be punished. That is, they firmly believe in an idea eye for eye. They might also agree that it is wrong to pull the wool over a person's eyes. This means "try to trick a person by making him believe something that is false." but the man and the woman don't believe in the evil eye. That person can harm you by looking at you.

The next day, at their school, the woman asks the manto keep an eye on or watch the young students in her class while she's out of the classroom. This might be hard to do when the teacher is writing on the board at the front of the classroom. To do so, the teacher would need eyes at the back of his head. In other words, he would know what the children are doing even when he's not watching him.
