For a young couple with busy careers and a new baby, it can be hard to find time for romance. Jessica Alba and Cash Warren are both successful Hollywood actors, and they recently had a baby girl. So they have to squeeze in special one-on-one time whenever they can.

Luckily, giving someone a kiss on the cheek or a little card that says I love you doesn’t take a lot of time. You can squeeze it in even if you have a busy schedule. When you squeeze something in it doesn’t have to take up a big part of your day. You just have to clear a little bit of time for it. It’s important for couples to squeeze in some time for each other if they want to keep their romance going.

But there are so many different things we have to squeeze in every day. Between work, family, friends, exercise, eating and errands, you may feel like you don’t have time to squeeze in anything else. Not even a little quality time with your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife—who could also be called your main squeeze.

What things do you try to squeeze in to your schedule? Do you find it hard to squeeze in everything you want to do each day?

範例

1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

“I hope I can squeeze in a Broadway show while I’m in New York.”

“The restaurant is going to be really packed tonight, but they’ll try to squeeze in a reservation for us.”

“Thanks for squeezing me in. I know you’re busy right now.”

Nowadays, it's hard to meet people with time enough to do simple and relaxing things. The every-day rush we're in don't let us enjoy things enough! And I'm not talking just about time to spend with soul mates, but also time for movies, plays or even to listen to a music and relax. Perhaps it's a 2000's necessary skill to know how to squeeze in time for these things…
