"Waltz up to" nghĩa là gì?

'Waltz up to someone or something' = tiếp cận hoặc xuất hiện bên cạnh ai/cái gì một cách cố tình, tự tin hoặc trơ trẽn (giống như khi làm quen ai đấy).

Ví dụ
“I think it takes a very special, unique, just incredible human to play the role of a mascot (linh vật),” Smulka said. “Especially T.C Bear, if you’re going to look like a teddy bear and waltz up to kids you have to have that magic twinkle.”

Video shows a 33-year-old man waltz up to the altar (bàn thờ) of St. Anthony of Padua on Manhattan Avenue near Noble Street at around 9:30 am, before pouring the red juice on the holy table and a bible (kinh thánh), and spraying some of the liquid on Father Jossy Vattothu — staining the priest’s robes and leaving him in shock, according to the pastor (mục sư).

That's what makes the mobility items you find throughout Indivisible so much fun: they always have a dual purpose. Take the spear (cái giáo), for example: your first inclination (ý định) might be to waltz up to enemies and stick'em with the pointy end, which you can do, but it's more useful as a means to pole vault Ajna up to high ledges that she couldn't reach before.

"Get changed" nghĩa là gì?

"Get changed" = Thay đồ/thay quần áo.

Ví dụ
"You don't want to have to get changed 7 or 8 times a day". What are the challenges that the modern young plant growers (người trồng cây) face nowadays?

Shellie Milward still remembers having to get changed in the car park. Hardly the ideal preparation as cars whiz by while you're putting your boots on.

Whilst Kim is struggling to get into her suit, sister Kourtney is in no rush to help her sister get changed, but is in fact all ready to go with her matching brown coloured latex suit.

"Get behind in" nghĩa là gì?

"Get behind in (something)" = Chỉ theo bóng đằng sau/cứ tụt lại phía sau -> Không thể làm công việc/bài tập hiện tại; tiến trình và hành động chậm hơn người khác; không thể hài lòng với số tiền mình phải trả/trách nhiệm tài chính.

Ví dụ
“I can’t say enough, ‘If you get behind in rent or think you will, please come see us,’” said Berman. “It’s much easier to take care of it now than later, especially while the funds are still available.”

She says her son is feeling conflicted. "He's a teenagers so he's like yay, school is out. But also at the same time, these grades count, he doesn't want to get behind in anything, they're not really supposed to be socializing with friends, so it's just really a cause for concern."

At this point, you might wonder what advice behavioural scientists have actually given the UK government regarding Covid-19. As a behavioural scientist whose job is to produce evidence for policy in Ireland, I certainly do. There should be a clear articulation of a strategy that is best for all, encouraging behaviours that everyone can get behind in a national collective effort, and that people can badger their fellow citizens to stick to. Instead, there are foggy statements of rationale, for behaviours that are disputed by national experts, that some people are encouraging their fellow citizens to stick two fingers up to. My mother is in her seventies and lives in Oxford, where I grew up. Her response to current official advice is unprintable (quá xúc phạm, quá khiếm nhã không in được (vì quá tục tĩu)).

"Thank you to keep your opinions to yourself" nghĩa là gì?

"I'll thank you to keep your opinions to yourself" hoặc "thank you to mind your own business" = cảm ơn vì đã giữ ý kiến đó lại cho bản thân -> ý là đừng tọc mạch hay can thiệp vào chuyện của tôi, tôi cũng không quan tâm đâu.

Ví dụ
I know I'm not your choice of a wife for him, but I doubt anyone would be. I'll thank you to keep your opinions to yourself in future.

She didn't act as if she'd heard him or even knew be appreciated (đánh giá cao). But since that is not the case, I'll thank you to mind your own business. 

"Be that as it may, what you're doing is wrong. And I for one am not going to sit by and say nothing."
'Well, I'd thank you to keep your opinions to YOURSELF," roars (gầm lên) Dad.

"Oh, shut up, Quentin," the Lord Roland snapped (cáu kỉnh). “I'll thank you to keep your opinions to yourself. You haven't seen fit to commit (cam kết) any of your soldiers (lính) to this little undertaking (nhiệm vụ), a rather strange position given that the monstrosity (sự kỳ quái) borders your lands.

"Get back up" nghĩa là gì?

"Get (one's) back up" = Làm ai cáu lên/điên tiết.

Ví dụ
It’s not surprising to hear that Vicky doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. “I’ve always been a stubborn mule (người ương bướng). And I’m a typical Scorpio. If you get my back up, watch out. What I hate is to see people not telling the truth and hiding something.”

She faced backlash from users accusing her of not having said enough about him in her post. Speaking to The Sun she said, 'Very few things get my back up but those messages really annoyed me.' 'Don’t tell me what I need to post on my Instagram. What is this weird culture?' 'For me it would have been wildly inappropriate to post anything more.'

"The good news is that with advances in research and veterinary (thú y) medicine, catastrophic injury rates will decrease over time. "No one cares more for racehorses than those who care for them on a daily basis." Others on social media are of the same thought. "People who say ban it really get my back up, do we ban people from driving cars? Or ban surfing? Maybe we should ban walking to people die every day. Time to move on."

"Can't thank you enough" nghĩa là gì?

"I/we can't thank you enough" = Tôi không biết nói gì hơn để cảm ơn bạn -> biểu thị một sự biết ơn sâu sắc với thái độ chân thành. Thường dùng để cảm ơn ai đó làm một điều rất quan trọng và ý nghĩa đối với bạn.

Ví dụ
We can’t thank you enough for your kindness (lòng tốt), it really does show what a fantastic community (cộng đồng tuyệt vời) we have. 

You’ve given us a fantastic launch to our funding (tài trợ) drive, donating (quyên góp) over £1,500 – with many of those being monthly payments. We really can’t thank you enough.

“We can’t thank you enough for coming forward,” Isgett said. “Thank you for your generosity (sự rộng lượng) in coming forward. It is clear the character in this community is great.”

“They put together some FaceTimes for my mom and her two siblings," Scotch explained, "They were able to say their goodbyes. My dad recorded (ghi lại) it so we could see it as well... those nurses and health care providers (nhà cung cấp) are so overworked (làm việc quá sức) right now and struggling, but they were able to give my family at least a gift that we can’t thank them enough for."

"Won't thank you for" nghĩa là gì?

"(Someone) won't thank you for" = sẽ không cảm ơn bạn vì điều đó -> cảm thấy khó chịu vì điều người khác làm.

Ví dụ
You'll love him even more than you love me now. That's how it has to be, that's how I want it. I want you to promise me that you'll love and marry when you wish. Don't hold back for me. Because I won't thank you for it.

He won't thank you for thanks, and he won't thank you for making him feel obligated (ép buộc) to you for noticing. He won't thank you for anything, in fact, and the best thanks you can give him is to stay far (tránh xa) from him and say nothing.

During the teen years, you may need to serenade (hát dạ khúc) your yung adult with a heartsong accompanied by (kèm theo) a voice of silence. Unless immune (miễn nhiễm) to mortification (mất thể diện), your teenager won't thank you for showing up at the pizza parlor or school game to sing. He'll thank you if you don't!

"Get away with you" nghĩa là gì?

"Get away with (someone or something)" = Chạy trốn với ai/điều gì, trốn tránh hậu quả. "Get away with you!" để diễn đạt sự ngạc nhiên, không tin nổi và cả sự ngờ vực.

Ví dụ
All I wanna do
Is get away with you
You had me at hello, what's up
What we gonna do when we leave this club

My heart still aches over the ending of How to get away with Murder. Advertisement. I have an insane collection of Beyonce's performances.

Not many athletes have the talent and clout (quyền lực không chính thức) to go by one name and get away with it. Cam can. Cam Newton can. How good was he at his peak? What is the best word to describe his 2015 MVP season?
