On another planet 在另一個世界

如果形容一個人是在另一個世界,那就表示這個人對眼前的事情心不在焉,漠不關心。

例句

Jane's on another planet – she went to buy some apples and bought lemons instead!

John really doesn't listen in class; he seems to be on another planet.

請注意

如果說一個人 living on another planet 那麼意思就是說這個人一點都不現實。

例句

He thinks we'll be able to drive to Paris by tonight – he's really on another planet!

If she thinks we can afford a two-week holiday in Spain she's living on another planet!
