"Wear the trousers" nghĩa là gì?

"Wear the trousers" = mặc quần -> nghĩa là người (thường là phụ nữ) trụ cột trong mối quan hệ, đưa ra quyết định cho cả đôi bên.

Ví dụ
She wears the trousers. Celia has spoken out about how she believes she is in charge (nắm quyền) in their marriage. Speaking on Good Morning Britain in May 2018, she responded to the question of whether she wore the trousers, saying: “Uhh yes, I think so!

Another guessed that Vogue wears the trousers in the relationship, to which Vogue replied: ‘To be honest we’re pretty equal (bình đẳng). I kind of run the house and do the organising but it doesn’t mean I wear the trousers…’

In a statement on Facebook, the zoo said: "Fabi was a beautiful, confident (tự tin) big cat who was always more than happy to take the back seat with his relaxed nature, and let mate Shakira ‘wear the trousers’ in the relationship. 

The mum-of-five also shared with fans a hint (gợi ý) as to who seems to wear the trousers in the relationship by captioning the photos: "Date night with the Boss @carljwoods".

"Sign on the dotted line" = ký vào dòng chấm -> nghĩa là ký xác nhận.

Ví dụ
This gave RVD no choice but to join the company he had been fighting against and sign on the dotted line in the Summer of 2001.

Taillon reiterated (lặp lại) that he feels physically strong and that no innings limit has been discussed. The Yankees, however, probably would sign on the dotted line if they could be guaranteed that Taillon would give them 120-plus.

When done correctly, co-signing can be a great tool for helping someone who may have trouble qualifying for a mortgage (thế chấp) on their own. However, before you sign on the dotted line, be sure you understand how this generous act could impact your own finances in the future. 

Tuivasa-Sheck on Thursday said he had played a part in getting Walsh to sign on the dotted line with the Warriors. "I had a coffee with him and he seems like a real down-to-earth person and that is a good value straight away," Tuivasa-Sheck said of the 18-year-old Queensland junior representative.

"Banana repulic" nghĩa là gì?

"Banana repulic" = cộng hòa chuối -> nghĩa là các quốc gia có nền chính trị bất ổn, kinh tế phụ thuộc nặng nề vào xuất khẩu các nguồn sản phẩm hữu hạn.

Ví dụ
Believe me, it might have appeared so, but this was not purely a story for fun (we have too much respect for the constraints (đè nén) on people’s time to simply toy with such events). We set out to remind readers how things work in a banana republic, and in this case a banana republic with the biggest economy in the Middle East and 83mn souls to provide for.

This is spicy (cay đắng) stuff coming from the country’s former first minister. If he is to be believed, Scotland under the SNP is not so much a mature democracy as a cold weather version of a banana republic.

The Founders, and Henry Clay, would be appalled (dọa) by McConnell’s recent and weird speech threatening he will turn the Senate into a banana republic “scorched (hình kim) earth” unless he gets his way.

I had so many, but I mean, I also remember even in my last, you know, semester (học kỳ) at Yale, we would go literally from - I would take the train in to 30 Rock. There was a Banana Republic at the base of 30 Rock.

"A lost ball in the weeds" nghĩa là gì?

"A lost ball in the weeds" = quả bóng lạc trong cỏ dại -> nghĩa là hoàn toàn lạc lối, bối rối, mơ hồ, không biết phải làm gì.

Ví dụ
Do you want to be a sports man who goes to the field to play, or you want to sell tickets at the entrance (cửa vào) and put the money in your pocket? Do not be a lost ball in the weeds.

Following their qualification to the final rounds of the world cup, Drogba decided he was not going to mosey (la cà) along or be a lost ball in the weeds as he decided to use his position of influence to heal the broken nation. He picked up a microphone on live television, went down on his knees and pleaded.

Fazal brought whoops of delight to a country which was still finding its feet after Partition. At a time when it was easy to expect Pakistan to be a lost ball in the weeds, the pacer had enough quality in his repertoire  (tiết mục) to puncture (châm thủng) the aura of their highly regarded opponents.

If we go numerical, does she know how many NRM subscribers are against this proposed Bill, let alone the rest of Ugandans? Anite’s remark is just a banbury story of a cock and a bull. She is simply a lost ball in the weeds.

Đồ ăn sao lâu thế không biết?

an tâm, giờ đồ chơi tình dục có thể rung báo shipper sắp đến rồi nhé... :D

More than a year into lockdowns (phong tỏa) and stay-at-home orders (ngồi nhà đặt đồ ăn qua mạng) because of the pandemic (đại dịch), people have been accustomed (quen với) to ordering food online from their favorite restaurants. And you know what else is in demand right now? The use of teledildonics, or those smart devices that allow long-distance partners to still be intimate, albeit remotely.

A company called CamSoda is using the power of internet-connected toys (đồ chơi tình dục có kết nối internet), like the trusty vibrator (dương vật giả), through “Grubuzz” that alerts its user the status of one’s order by sending vibrations (rung) to the toy.

With the different stages of one’s order, the vibrations’ frequency (tần số) will gradually increase. For example, when the restaurant receives the order, the toy’s vibration will start slowly. The vibration will progressively increase as the driver picks up the food and leaves the restaurant with the order until the driver gets to one’s door.

tắc nghẽn tại kênh đào Suez khiến chuyến hàng 20 công-te-nơ... đồ chơi tình dục ko thể tới được hà lan... :D

According to Dutch news outlet RTVNoord, a shipment of 20 containers filled with...*ahem...’dildos (dương vật giả), vibrators (kích thích âm vật) and male masturbators’ (thủ dâm) is stuck on one of the many ships that is being held up by the situation in Egypt which doesn’t look like it will be resolved anytime soon.

The products are made by the Dutch company EDC Retail, who sell their items across the Netherlands and Belgium. They’ve called they hold up ‘annoying’ as they had been aiming to restock their supplies after selling ‘a lot’ during Valentine’s Day and Christmas.

Evertine Magerman, the CEO of the firm is quoted as saying: “There is now an extra lot on the way to restore stocks. But that is not possible now...
