[ワンポイント] Right on!

Happy Monday!




I hope you had a good weekend!  I had a great time, but I got a sunburn...  When Yoshi came over yesterday (Sunday) to record the podcast, I looked like a cooked lobster!  笑

The new episode will be out at 10:00am on Thursday...  But to start the week, let's take a look at another “One-point English” lesson(日本語の説明付き!), from Dave (デイブ).  If you want more, please check out his website!  He posts something new everyday.


 

"Right on!"

今日はかなりカジュアルな表現を話したいとおもいます。皆さんは「Right-on」と言うブランドを見たことありますか?ブランドと言うかただ店の名前かも知れませんが、モールやショッピングセンターでよく見ます。



"Right on"って意味わかりますか?賛成する時に言います。意味は「大賛成!」又は「いいね!」に近いです。別に失礼な表現ではないですけど、かなりカジュアルです。主に若者や格好を付けている人が使います。少しクールな表現です。私は普通に使いますけど。

例文:

A: Let's get some pizza for dinner.
B: Right on! (賛成!)

A: I got a promotion at work!
B: Right on! (いいね!)

A: I finally told my boss I want a raise and he agreed.
B: Right on. (よかったね。)

That's it!

[ワンポイント] If only Yoshi would stop talking about his bike...

 It's hump day!  (Wednesday is called "hump" day because it is in the middle of the week)




I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  We will release a brand new episode tomorrow at 10:00am.  I think it will be a good one!  But for now, let's take a look at another “One-point English” lesson(日本語の説明付き!), from Dave (デイブ).  If you want more, please check out his website!  He posts something new everyday.






皆さんは「If only...」って聞いたことありますか?「If only...」は「I wish...」より必死な言い方です。「I wish...」は可能性が低いことを望んでいる時に言いますよね。例えば「I wish it would stop raining.」:雨が止んだらいい。


「If only...」は使い方がおなじです。


「If only my dog would come home.」


→「ワンちゃんが帰ったらいいのに。」


「If only...」は想像している時に言うので過去形と一緒に使います。


例文:


A: If only I could find a new job...


B: Don' stress it. I'm sure you'll find something soon.



A: I really hate our boss.


B: Yeah, if only he'd retire...



A: If only I could meet him one more time...


B: You should just forget about him and move on.











That's it!

The Spiciest Chili Peppers in the World!

Hello!

TGIF!

(Thank God It's Friday)

In the last two episodes, I have talked about "Ghost Chilies"...  So I decided to make a blog post about "The Hottest Chili Spice Set on Earth!"



I LOVE spicy food...  Maybe too much! 笑

My friend is from San Francisco, and he bought me this chili set while he was visiting his hometown.

To be honest, I was afraid to try it!  I kept it in my refridgerator for months.  Then about one month ago, I finally tried the "Ghost Chilies".

The Ghost Chilies are the least spicy of the three.  Here you can see how spicy they are compared to other chilies.



It was super spicy!  You only need to use a little bit.  I have been eating the Ghost Chilies for about one month, but still I have only used about half.



The Ghost chilies have a really nice smoky flavor too.  I was surprised that the taste wasn't just pure spicy.

After the Ghost Chilies are finished I'll try the...

....SCORPION CHILIES!!!

Then if that doesn't kill me, I'll try the...

...REAPER CHILIES!!!!!!!



Surely I'll be dead or in a coma (昏睡状態) after that! 笑

 

If, IF! If you are a true 黒帯 Spice Master, and you have a chance, try the spiciest chili peppers!

But be careful!  ...And don't touch the chilis with your fingers.

 

Spicy Chilis!  Yeah!
