Larry想和李华，还有她那些中国朋友多在一起玩儿，了解更多的中国文化。他们会用到两个说法：once in a blue moon和pull one's leg.
Larry: Hey, Lihua, there you are. I haven't seen you all day. What have you been up to?
LH: 我刚才跟几个中国同学出去喝珍珠奶茶啦，就是bubble tea！
Larry: Bubble tea, huh? What is that?
Larry: Haha, is it that surprising? Actually, sometimes I wish I could tag along with you guys. You know, so I could learn more about the Chinese culture.
Larry: Aw.... come on, Lihua. Even I'll admit that it's fun to try new things once in a blue moon.
Larry: In a blue moon. "Once in a blue moon" means once in a long while or on a rare occasion.
LH: 我明白了，"once in a blue moon"就是不经常，很久发生一次，对吗？
Larry: Yes. I don't think I'd enjoy being confronted with new things all the time, but every once in a blue moon it can be fun.
LH: 你是说，你不喜欢成天被新事物包围，但是好久来那么一下子，偶尔接触点新鲜的东西，还是不错的。这样吧Larry，下次我们再去喝bubble tea的时候，我一定叫上你。
Larry: Sounds great! How often do you go get bubble tea anyway?
LH: 其实我们也很少去。We only go once in a blue moon.
Larry: Hmm, well, if you only get bubble tea once in a blue moon, what are you always doing with your Chinese friends? I never know what you guys are up to.
LH: 其实我们主要也就是吃吃喝喝啦。这个周末我们要去吃粤式点心。Have you ever heard of点心, dim sum?
Larry: Dim sum...hmm. Sounds exotic. What's that?
LH: 就是很多好吃的广东小吃！有锅贴，萝卜糕，耗油芥蓝... 有时候，once in a blue moon, 我们还会点凤爪 - chicken feet!
Larry: Chicken feet??? Yuck! Who would eat that? Lihua, are you pulling my leg?
LH: 什么？Pulling your leg? 拉你的腿？
Larry: No, I mean are you playing a joke on me?
LH: 哦，"pull your leg"就是开玩笑唬你的意思。可我没有瞎说啊，凤爪，也就是鸡脚，可是非常好吃哦！
Larry: Oh my goodness! Well, if they're so delicious, how come you say you only eat them once in a blue moon?
Larry: OK, now I know you're pulling my leg!
Larry: Come on, there's got to be something Chinese I can do with you guys.
LH: Hmm, 我想一想啊，我知道了！你喜欢唱K么？KTV?
Larry: KTV? You mean karaoke? I don't know, Lihua. I don't really like singing...
LH: Are you pulling my leg, Larry? 上次我明明听见你带着耳机在唱Lady Gaga的歌！
Larry: That's different! I'm too shy to sing in front of other people...I don't even know your friends that well.
Larry: Me? Sing well? Ha. Now I know you're pulling my leg.
LH: I'm not pulling your leg! 我说真的！你怎么老觉得我在糊弄你？
Larry: OK, OK, no need to get upset. You're right. I do like to sing once in a blue moon, but I don't know if I could do it in front of other people...
LH: Larry, 不是你要了解中国文化嘛？还这么多事儿。
Larry: I've got an idea. Let me start with that bubble tea stuff. I've had tea before. How weird can it be? I know you guys only go get bubble tea once in a blue moon, but I can wait. Why do they call it bubble tea anyway?
Larry: Really? And what are the black bubbles made of?
LH: 哈！Larry, this time I was pulling your leg. 这回我是逗你的啦！
Larry: Oh! Come on, Lihua...
今天李华从Larry那儿学到两个常用语。一个是once in a blue moon, 表示非常少见，很久才发生一次。另一个是pull one's leg,是糊弄、欺骗某人的意思。
