介绍: Today we will be learning a new slang, couch potato.
Couch 沙发. Potato, 土豆.
A couch potato is someone who spends most of their time watching television and does not exercise or have any interesting hobbies.
Potato is kind of like a symbol of something that is sedentary.
And if someone sits on the couch for a long period and do nothing but watching the television, he/she might become plump just like the shape of potatoes.
My father becomes a couch potato during the World Cup season this year.
Do you know that you have been becoming a couch potato since we got cable TV?
