tom和vivian是香港一家跨国公司的雇员。vivian被升职,要调到美国奥兰多的办事处。她知道tom是从芝加哥调到香港来的,所以向tom征求意见。tom谈到利弊时说:

t: on a financial note, you'll probably be able to save a lot more of your salary and have more disposable income, as rents and living costs in that area are reasonable.

v: yes. from a financial standpoint relocating makes sense, but i just want to make sure i'm not shooting myself in the foot. happiness is important, right?

tom说,要说钱,奥兰多房租、生活费用很合理,reasonable, 所以vivian会有更多可支配的收入,disposable income.

vivian表示,如果光看钱,去奥兰多确实很合适,make sense, 但是她不愿意搬起石头砸自己的脚,i just want to make sure i'm not shooting myself in the foot. 因为开心还是很重要的。

t: oh, absolutely. but florida is a beautiful state with a nice climate. you'll be able to enjoy the beaches and take vacations in miami!

v: sounds good. it's just such a hard decision for me. i want to branch out and spread my wings, but there's so many "unknowns."

vivian说,她想扩大发展,展开双臂,branch out and spread my wings, 但是又有太多的未知数,unknowns.

t: yeah, i also had mixed emotions when they first offered me this job. but i have a favorite quote by the poet john berryman that helped me a lot.

v: which is?
