故事梗概

Rachel 高中时的约会伙伴 Chip 突然打电话来要约 Monica,为此.Rachel 不太愿意。
要知道,Chip 正是 Rachel 当年参加毕业舞会时带去的男伴,他曾经是 the most popular guy in school。Rachel不同意 Monica 的约会,而 Monica 坚持要去,两人因而发生了一点小小的冲突。


Monica 说,我们上的根本就是两所学校。但是,这个 chip 现在混得根本不怎么样,现在的 Monica 和他约会,真是掉 Monica 的价……


Rachel: Okay, that doesn't help me, because we went to the same high school.


Monica: You went to one where you were popular, and you got to ride off Chip's motorcycle, and wear his letterman jacket. I went to one where I wore a band uniform they had to have specially made.


Rachel: (shocked) They had to have that specially made?!


Monica: It was a project for one of the Home Ec classes.


Rachel: (stunned) Oh my God, they told us that was for the mascot!


Monica: Back then, I thought that I would never, ever get the chance to go out with a Chip Matthews, and now he's-he's called me up and asked me out. And the fat girl inside of me really wants to go. I-I owe her this. I never let her eat.


讲解


letterman的意思是“a secondary or college student who has been awarded a letter for excellence in an activity,especially a varsity sport”,即“校内优秀运动员”,或“体育特长生”。


参加校际体育赛事(varsity sport)的运动员,一旦获奖都会得到 acloth“letter”,通常是学校的首字母或首字母缩写(school's initial or initials),获奖运动员可以将这个“布字母”和运动衫或是夹克弄到一起,以展示其受到奖励。letterman 这个词并不分性别(not gender-specific),现在非体育赛事也借用奖励 letter 这一传统,例如参加乐队和辩论赛的获奖选手也可能被奖励letter。


在美国,体育特长生尤其受宠,女生对体育好的男生十分崇拜,很多女生都希望自己的男友是个 letterman。Rachel 曾经是Prom Queen,对她而言,和 letterman 约会轻而易举;但是,对 Monica 这个曾经的大胖子来说,她就只能是幻想一下了,因为她的衣服都是特制的,大家要在 Home Ec.课即 Home Economics(家政学)为她来特别缝制。有趣的是,Rachel并不知道这一点,她以为是为球队缝制吉祥物(mascot)呢。


Home Ec.是home economics的简称,也称为family and consumer sciences,是一门集消费者学(consumer science)、营养学(nutrition)、烹饪(cooking)、养育(parenting)、纺织(textiles)等学问的学科(academic discipline)。
