    不,我不這麼認為。

  • how to put the "awe" back in "awesome."

    而我今晚希望教你

  • Recently, I was dining at an outdoor cafe,

    該如何重拾 “厲害” 中,“厲” 的含意 (Awesome)。

  • and the server came up to our table,

    最近我去了間露天餐廳,

  • and asked us if we had dined there before,

    有位服務生來到了 我們用餐的桌子,

  • and I said, "Yes, yes, we have."

    問我們是否來過。

  • And she said, "Awesome."

    我回答,“是,是,我們曾經來過”

  • And I thought, "Really?

    他回答我,“厲害”。

  • Awesome or just merely good

    我心想 “真的嗎?

  • that we decided to visit your restaurant again?"

    厲害?還是只是很好

  • The other day, one of my coworkers asked me

    我們決定再次光顧你的餐廳?”

    我能不能把那個資料存為PDF檔。

    它的定義已經成為了

  • Now, with that in mind,

    恐懼夾雜著愛慕或敬畏的感覺,

    一種宏偉事物所產生出來的感覺。

  • How about that parking space? Was that awesome?

    現在,想想看,

  • Or that game the other day? Was that awesome?

  • The answer is no, no and no.

    那個停車位呢?它厲害嗎?

  • that parking space can be nearby,

    答案是不是,不是,和不是。

  • and that game can be a blowout,

    一份三明治可以很美味,

  • but not everything can be awesome.

    停車位能是很靠近,

  • (Laughter)

    球賽可以是很激烈,

  • So when you use the word "awesome"

    但不是所有的事都很厲害。

  • to describe the most mundane of things,

    (笑聲)

  • you're taking away the very power of the word.

    所以當你使用“厲害”

  • This author says, "Snowy days

    去描述生活中的瑣事

  • or finding money in your pants is awesome."

    你便是在帶走這詞的力量。

  • (Laughter)

    這位作家說 “下雪天

  • Um, no, it is not,

    或是在你的褲袋裡找到錢是厲害。”

    你也就甚麼都不珍惜。
