    the coast is clear 前面的危險已經解除;安全上壘

    Context:
    A Day of Misfortune
    Dear Jenny:
    (前文請見上一期)
    …When I got to the office, I waited until I thought the coast was clear and hurried past reception without being seen by any of the bosses. “Hurray! I said to myself, “ I’ve got away with it!” …. 

    悲慘的一天
    親愛的珍妮:
    ……當我總算抵達辦公室後,我在門口確認裡面情況是安全之後,就很快地走過櫃檯;我沒有被任何一位主管發現呢。「萬歲!」我成功上壘了。…

     片語: the coast is clear 前面的危險已經解除;安全上壘
     定義:used to indicate that it is safe to proceed or escape without the likelihood of being seen or getting caught because there is no one watching.
     例句:
    1. Kate was worried about what her parents would say about her arriving home late and so she waited for her brother to tell her that their parents had gone to bed and the coast was clear.
    Kate 擔心父母會因為自己晚歸而對她碎碎唸,於是她就在門口等她弟弟通風報信,直到她弟確認爸媽都去睡覺了,才安全無虞地走進家門。
