"Good-time Charlie" nghĩa là gì?

Các bạn có biết đây là 3 nhân vật trong series phim truyền hình nào không? Photo courtesy Peter Pham.

'Good-time Charlie' nghĩa là người vui vẻ, sống động, đáng yêu - người thường xuyên và luôn tìm kiếm niềm vui hoặc thời gian vui vẻ (an affable, lively, and entertaining man who is often or always seeking pleasure or a good time).

Ví dụ
When he’s on the mound, he’s like Nolan Ryan and those guys. The only thing that can get Luis in trouble in the long run is he's a bit of a good-time Charlie.

I'd love to be able to tell you that, apart from those good-time-Charlie, bike-rental, City-boy cyclists, summer cyclists are a good bunch. But, sadly, I cannot.

He’s not a bad guy by any stretch; on the contrary, he’s an engaging and personable young man who is enjoyable to chat with and who is fun to be around. He’s been a good-time Charlie in a sport that harshly penalizes that type of personality. And so, as he gets a second crack at a career-defining bout, Chavez acts as if he understands all it entails to be a professional and to defeat Canelo Alvarez on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena.
