  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 110. The proverb today is once bitten

  • twice shy. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here.

  • This proverb is said to describe someone who doesn't want to do something a

  • second time because he or she had a very bad or very terrible experience the

  • first time they did it. So, so you can imagine how it alludes... you know, how it

  • alludes to it. You know, almost as though you got bit by some animal. You know,

  • you'd be careful not to touch that animal again. So once bitten twice shy.

  • So you're twice as careful. All right. Let's continue. Let's take a look at the

  • first example here. I once dated a bad boy. All right now, if you say a bad boy

  • this is probably a guy that gets in trouble a lot, especially in trouble with

  • the law. Maybe he does a lot of criminal sort of activity. That's what we mean.

  • So some sometimes we see this on TV that maybe some girls are attracted to bad

  • boys. That's what they mean. That's the way they refer to them. So she says I

  • once dated a bad boy, but he ended up getting arrested. And is still in jail. I

  • went through hell with that relationship. Basically she's saying like never

  • again. Once bitten and twice shy. So she would never date that type of guy again.

  • So once she... once he experienced it. Once she learned it, she would never do that

  • again. So once bitten and twice shy. All right.

  • Let's look at number two here. The first time she ever got on a horse, something

  • made the horse nervous and she was thrown off. Yeah you know, we see this in

  • the movies. They jump up and some throw the person off. And a lot of times you

  • get hurt. Sometimes to get seriously hurt. She never dared to get on a horse again.

  • Once bitten and twice shy. So this is exactly how it could be used. Anyway I

  • hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
