Welcome to our second session.
Last week we worked with idiomatic expressions at work.
|Idioms and PEOPLE|
THE HUMAN JUNGLE...|
Folks, guys, buddies. There are all kinds of names for people in the English world. What are you like? A space cadet, a mamma's boy, a goofy?
I hate stereotypes but if you saw the guys at my apartment building... It's full of cartoon characters.
On the first floor live a "fat cat". and his "bimbo". They call each other "pumpkin" and "honey".
Then, there's a "hottie" on the second. He's a bit of a "klutz". Once he broke a mayonaise jar on the elevator and made it worse trying to clean it up.
The "lounge lizard" lives on the third. He tries to hit on any woman that passes by. So annoying!
The fourth is the digs of the odd couple: an exercise "junkie" and a "couch potato". He's also our official "party pooper", always complaining about the volume of music and stuff like that.
On the fifth is our "drag queen". For everybody, he is the "fall guy" when there's trouble in the building.
And finally to complete the cast, there's our janitor who's a bit of a "Neanderthal" but a great "Jack of all trades" when anything breaks down.
Me??? Well, I'm on the sixth floor. And of course I'm the "babe"! Hm, actually, I'm more of the computer "geek", but no "dog" at all! Let's make that clear.
