So, in English when we say
所以在英文中当我们说
something is a”stone’s throw away” from us
某个东西离我们“a stone’s throw away ”
it means that it is very, very close.
它的意思那事物离我们非常 非常近
I think, because, if you were to throw a stone,
我想 原因是 如果你扔一个石头
if you were to actually pick
如果你真的捡起一个石头
up a stone and throw it,
然后扔了它
you can’t actually throw a stone very far. So,
你其实并不能扔的很远
we use the phrase that
所以我们用这个短语
something is a”stone’s throw away”
某物“a stone’s throw away ”
to talk about things that are very close. So,
来形容那物离我们非常近
a good example would be if someone said to me,
一个好的例子是如果有人对我说
“I need to go buy something at a hardware store,
“我需要去五金店买一些东西”
“is there one close to your house?”
“你房子附近有吗?”
I could say,”oh there’s one just a stone’s throw away,”
我会说:“噢 有一个离我房子一个石头的距离”
which would mean that there is a hardware store really,
也就是说这有个五金店离我房子
really close to my house. So,
非常 非常近
it’s very much a figure of speech,
所以 这只是一个修辞手法
we don’t actually mean that the thing we are talking about
我们实际上并不是说
is exactly the distance that I can throw a stone,
那个距离就是我们可以丢一个石头的距离
but it does mean that something is very, very close to us. So,
而是说那个东西离我们非常近
there are a lot of things that are
有很多东西
just a stone’s throw away from where I live.
其实只是离我们有一个丢石头的距离
We have another phrase that we use,
此外我们还有另外一个短语
” a hop, skip, and a jump.”
“a hop skip and a jump”
I’m not gonna demonstrate,
我不会真的跳给你看来证明的
but a hop is when you just jump
但是hop的意思是当你跳跃时
with both feet forward,
要保证俩只脚落地
and a skip is when you, just kinda jump forward on one foot.
然后skip的意思是当你跳跃时一只脚向前
And then obviously, a jump, is when you jump forward
那么显然 一个jump 是两只脚
with both feet as well.
同时向前跳
But we will say that things
但是我们会说那个东西离我们
are just a”hop, skip, and a jump” away. So,
只有一个“跳跃”的距离
where I’m standing right now, I’m actually at work,
就像现在我站的地方是我工作的地方
if I needed to go buy a pizza
如果我想要买一份披萨
at a pizza place
在披萨店
there is one that’s just a hop, skip,
那么它就只离我有
and a jump away,
一跳的距离
which means that it’s very, very close. Anyways,
也就是说它离我非常非常近
