    bury one’s head in the sand 鴕鳥心態、逃避問題

    Context:

    Bills, Bills, Bills

    Lucy looked through the letters which the postman had just delivered and said to Mike, “Nothing but bills again. What are we going to do? We can’t possibly pay them all this month.”

    “We’ll discuss them tonight,” said Mike. “I’m late for work.” Where bills were concerned Mike was apt to bury his head in the sand.

    永無止盡的帳單

    Lucy一邊翻著郵差寄來的一對信件,一邊對Mike說,全部都是帳單,我們該怎麼辦? 我們這個月絕對不可能付完全部的帳單。

    「我們今晚再討論好嗎?」Mike說。我上班要遲到了。每次提到帳單的話題,Mike總是偏向逃避現實。
