At the second house


Now this house feels much better.


I think I see your point now. When we walked in the door we could see the living room. It just felt more open.

Anna: Yep. Look at the wall colors. Yellow is 1)uplifting, and it’s an2)auspicious color in Chinese culture. And that green is3)soothing. It represents growth and peace.
Rick: I never thought about why I liked these colors before, but it makes sense.
Anna: A red door would be best for good 4)fortune, but it might look silly in this neighborhood.
Rick: Ha-ha. My décor can make me wealthy?
Anna: That’s the idea. You can also put a fish tank, which represents prosperity, near your work desk.
安娜: 現在這間房子感覺好多了。
瑞克: 我想我明白你所說的了。我們一走進門裡,就可以看到客廳,感覺比較開闊。
安娜: 對。看看這牆的顏色。黃色神清氣爽,而且在中國文化裡是種吉利的顏色。那個綠色可以令人舒緩放鬆,代表成長與和平。
瑞克: 好我從來沒想過為何我喜歡這些顏色,但很有道理。
安娜: 紅色大門有助好財運,但在這個社區裡可能會看起來有點蠢。
瑞克: 哈哈。我的房屋裝潢能讓我有錢?
安娜: 就是這個意思。你也可以在工作桌附近放個魚缸,代表興旺。

當你聽到有人說話頭頭是道,讓你大表贊同時,就可以說It makes sense.(有道理,說得通),口語中常把it省略,直接說Makes sense.。若想表示「那沒道理啦」、「一點也說不通」時,則可以說It makes no sense.或It doesn’t make any sense.

A: We shouldn’t launch the new marketing campaign until the old one is finished.
