I do a lot of driving in my job. You would think that driving several hours each way would get old really fast, but I have ways of making an interminable drive seem much more exciting.
因工作需要，我得经常驾车 。你也许觉得每天驾车几个小时，会让人衰老得很快 。但我有办法让无止尽的驾驶变得更刺激 。
I like to drive fast on the freeways. I usually pass all of the slower cars by staying in the passing lane. When there's a slow-moving car in the passing lane, though, I tailgate it until the driver moves over to another lane. If the driver doesn't move over, I weave back and forth from one lane to another until I get around it. What can I say? I just don't like anyone to keep me from the open road.
我喜欢驾车在高速公路上飞驰 。我时常将车开到超车道上，以赶超那些慢吞吞的车辆 。每当超车道上出现慢车，我会紧跟其后，直到司机把车开到其它车道上去 。如果司机不移车道，我会在车道间来回交错，直到避开那辆车 。怎么说呢？我只是不喜欢别人在路前面挡道 。
Sometimes, I encounter another driver who likes to drive fast and we have a drag race. I know how to bird dog the other car until I see a way to speed up and overtake it. That's why I almost always win.
有时，我会遇到其他喜欢开快车的司机，这时我们就会来场汽车拉力赛 。我善于观察其它的车辆，逮着机会我就会超越他们 。这就是我总是赢的原因 。
As you can see, I know how to spice up a boring drive. I hope to see you soon—on the road.
正如你所看见的，我知道怎样让驾车变得更有乐趣 。希望很快能遇到你——在路上 。
Idiom: bird dog
确实有一种狗叫做bird dog，专门被训练来帮助猎人发现野鸡、鹌鹑之类的飞禽猎物。 Bird dog 有特别敏锐的眼力和嗅觉，每当它发现躲藏在树丛草堆里的猎捕对象时，就全神贯注地静止不动，把眼睛鼻子直指向猎物的藏身之处 。这一来就引起了猎人的警觉，帮他们发现猎捕对象 。大约在1930年前后， bird dog 这个词组成为习惯用语，用来指被委派观察某一活动以便随时发现问题的人 。
1. I want to make sure we do a good job. So I'm asking Joe here to bird-dog the whole project and catch any trouble.
