    face the music 面對現實

    A Day of Misfortune
    Dear Jenny:
    (前文請見上一期)
    …There was no possibility of taking a taxi because I’m on my beam ends until pay day next week. I seriously thought of calling the office to say I was sick, but I decided to go in and face the music…. 

    悲慘的一天
    親愛的珍妮:
    …搭計程車趕去上班是不可行的,因為距離我下周的發薪日只剩一週,我現在簡直是窮途末路、窮到被鬼抓。我曾審慎地思考,乾脆打電話跟主管說我今天身體不適,請病假;但是,我最後還是決定去上班,面對現實。…


     片語: face the music 面對現實
     定義:to accept responsibility for doing something and be prepared to accept the consequences, such as punishment or criticism.
     例句:
    1. Tom was caught playing truant by the principal and is now going to have to face the music.
    Tom 被校長抓到曠課,他現在必須面對現實、接受懲罰。
    2. The government is reponsible for the poor state for the economy and their MPs must face the music at the forth-coming general election.
    政府必須對現階段貧困的經濟狀況負責任,而他們的國會議員們則要面對即將到來的選舉。(MPs = Member of Parliament 國會議員)
