P Yang Chen, I don't think we should go jogging today.
Y Why not?
P Valentine's Day is coming up.
YC: Oh my gosh, 情人节要到了。 OK, 那不跑步你准备作什么?
P: Well, I'm going to show my girlfriend my feminine and delicate side. I'm going to do a ballet dance for her.
Y : 可是你穿着小短裙子, that's just too much for me.
P: Well, I think it's cool. And besides, I don't care if I look different, so long as I'm not out of step when I dance.
YC: Out of step? You mean 跟不上节奏 ? 我倒是觉得你没有out of step, you're out of your mind.
P: That's just your opinion. My girlfriend finds my ballet dancing romantic. You know, Yang Chen, you can also use "out of step" in your daily life too. For example, last year my girlfriend and I were really out of step when we were meeting for our date. She went to the restaurant, but I thought we were meeting at the movies.
Y: 你们没有协调好行动。我不知道你女朋友怎么想，反正我啊， Seeing you do ballet，破坏了我所有的浪漫情绪。
P: Well, Yang Chen, at least you don't dance to other peoples' tunes.
P: Right. For example I could say that my parents always wanted me to be a doctor, but I refused to dance to their tune.
Y: Come on, Patrick, 你没做医生不是因为你不想dance to your parents' tune。
Y: You are not smart enough.
P: Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Y: You are welcome. Happy valentine's Day!
