Chickens

鸡肉

Chickens are so important to many of us because they are a major part of our diet. Every country has so many chicken dishes, and eggs are one of the most common foods around. Chickens are also cute. Well, chickens aren't, but chicks are - cute, fluffy chicks that make everyone go 'aaahh'. It's strange though that the word 'chicken' is used in so many English idioms. When I was at high school, you couldn't 'chicken out' - to not do something because of being scared. Things are different today - I'm no spring chicken (that means I'm no longer young) so no one calls me a chicken any more. I work now - as a teacher. I get chicken feed (low wages) but I like my job. I plan to retire before I'm 50, but I'm not going to count my chickens before they're hatched. This means I won't quit working until I have enough money.

鸡肉对我们很多人来说都很重要,因为它们是我们饮食的主要组成部分。每个国家都有很多鸡肉菜肴,鸡蛋是最常见的食物之一。鸡也很可爱。嗯,鸡肉不可爱,但小鸡是可爱的,毛茸茸的小鸡把所有人都萌翻。但奇怪的是,“鸡”这个词使用于许多英语习语中。我上高中的时候不能‘chicken out’——指不能因为害怕而退缩。今天的情况不同了——我不再是spring chicken了(指我不再年轻了),所以没有人再叫我胆小鬼(chicken)了。我工作了——我是一名老师。我的工资很低( chicken feed),但我喜欢我的工作。我计划在50岁前退休,但我不会过早乐观(count my chickens before they're hatched)。这意味着在存够钱之前我是不会停止工作的。
