Diarmuid: Hello and welcome to Authentic Real English from BBC Learning English. I’m Diarmuid.

Feifei: 大家好,我是冯菲菲。 Why are you looking so happy Diarmuid?

Diarmuid: Well, earlier today, I was outside on my telephone, when a lady asked me for a lighter.

Feifei: 打火机。

Diarmuid: Yes, I think she might have been trying to smirt with me.

Feifei: 她想和你干什么 smirt?

Diarmuid: Yes, smirt, S.M.I.R.T, smirt. Now smirt is a slang word to describe flirting with another person when you are smoking.

Feifei: It sounds like smoking and flirting have been joined together to make the word smirting.

Diarmuid: Exactly, that is how the word smirting is created.

Feifei: 原来是这个意思,今天早上问 Diarmuid 借火的这个女孩子其实对 Diarmuid 有好感,所以以借火为由和他搭讪。

A man and woman smoking

There are healthier ways to meet new people

Diarmuid: Yes, but I didn’t have a lighter, because I don’t smoke, so that was the end of the conversation.

Feifei: Was she pretty?

Diarmuid: She was very pretty.

Feifei: Oh well. She’ll probably be there tomorrow if you want to talk to her again. 现在在英国几乎所有的公共场所,像办公室,饭馆儿,都是禁烟的,所以想抽烟的朋友们只能去户外抽烟。 What do people usually say when they are smirting?

Diarmuid: It depends. Here is an example of some people smirting:

Example

A: Hi, could I borrow your lighter?

B: Sure.

A: Thanks. Are you new here?

B: Yeah, I just started in the IT department.

A: Oh great, I work in the office right next to you.

B: I guess we’ll be seeing a lot of each other.

Feifei: All this talk of smirting is making me feel a little lonely. 不知道我什么时候才能遇到梦中的白马王子呀!

Diarmuid: You do know that smoking is bad for you and that there are healthier ways to meet a nice guy than to smirt.

Feifei: I know.

Diarmuid: Ok, well that’s all for today.
