Go Super to Listen Go Super!

You’re in a store, and you see a child with a red, wet face. He’s getting louder and louder, and his cries are turning into screams. He wants something, either a toy or candy, and his father says no. He starts to throw things, then runs in circles, and then lies down on the ground. His father looks tired. The boy is getting carried away.

When someone gets carried away, he behaves in a way that is too much. It’s normal for a little boy to be sad or even cry when he can’t have something he wants, but to scream, throw things and lie down is to get carried away. Teenagers can get carried away when they like each other and spend all their time talking and dreaming about going on dates. Adults get carried away all the time, too, like spending too much money, eating too much food, or feeling too strongly about something that isn’t very serious.

Everyone gets carried away sometimes. What’s important is being able to know when you’re doing it!

Find out who’s getting carried away in today’s English lesson about Jeff and Rafael’s new friendship.

Jeff:  That was the best kung fu film festival ever.

Rafael:  Totally! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many kung fu movies in one day. I mean, how many did we watch? Five?

Jeff:  Six, dude. Six. That’s killer.

Rafael:  Crazy! Which one was your favorite?

Jeff:  Starting off, what about that chef that was also a kung fu master? It was insane!

Rafael:  Totally, man. I loved that scene where he was chopping food and fighting at the same time.

Jeff:  So tight. OK, what about the one where that kid, some little kid, was just ripping people up, man?

Rafael:  Wasn’t that kid five years old? Do kids learn kung fu that young?

Jeff:  Sure. Why not?

Rafael:  I don’t know. When I watched that one, I just felt like the director was getting a little carried away.

Jeff:  That one with the woman, where she’s fighting those people on the rooftops...

Rafael:  Totally. I was just awed by her incredible skill. I mean, she was a pro.

Jeff:  Yeah. I’d be terrified to fight her, man.

Rafael:  Totally. All right, all right, all right. So, if you had to make a kung fu movie, what would it be?

Jeff:  Well, it would star me, of course. I’d have a super, super hot girlfriend. I’d beat all the bad guys, and, I don’t know, I’d save the world in the process. Why not?

Rafael:  Now who’s getting carried away?

Rafael and Jeff had an amazing time at the kung fu film festival. They saw six different kung fu movies, and each one was more crazy than the last. In one film, the kung fu master was a five year old child. In another, the master was fighting and cooking food at the same time. The guys loved the event and are obviously going to see more kung fu movies together in the future.

Rafael asks Jeff what kind of kung fu movie he’d make if he could, and his answer is no big surprise. Jeff’s movie girlfriend would be beautiful, and Jeff would save the world. Would Rafael make the same kind of movie? He teases Jeff about getting carried away, but it’s likely that Rafael would make a big, fun movie, too.

Do you ever get carried away? What makes you act that way?

I sometimes get carried away with unfair situations in my job.  I can’t believe people could be so insincere.

It’s evident to get carried away regarding something once in a while. As me, recently, I can’t prevent of thinking about my mistakes and wrong decisions when i’m in the bed at midnight and it drives me crazy. Likewise, focusing on partial plants and incomplete agendas are in the same. Burning some stand out chances are somehow bitter.

I get carried with something I’m doing by myself. It can be origami, growing flowers, painting sewing, knitting, cooking. Something that you shows the result of your work. I feel like my brain is working, it’s all dynamic of creation and voila, you have the result! If it’s not good, I’ll do it and it’s a different story.

few things get me carried away.I always stay calm down,however I don’t think colling down is a perfect good trait.I think humans are emotional animals,we need to let out our feelings.we should take advantage of feelings instead of sealing it.That’s why I like talktive and live girl.too bad I don’t find one…I get carried away,uhhhhhhh

I usually get a little carried away when I’m buying things on the internet, and I always end up getting a bunch of stuff that I don’t need (which makes me feel awful afterwards)... That sucks!
