Jiaying
大家好,欢迎收听 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目,我是佳莹。

Neil
… and me, Neil.

Jiaying
Are you OK, Neil? You look really tired.

Neil
I am – but my best friend is living with me and he’s a nightmare. He never does the washing-up, and he plays his guitar all day – which he’s rubbish at! I’m just so stressed – I can’t relax!

Jiaying
Sounds like he’s living rent-free in your head.

Neil
What? No, Jiaying, rent is important – and he pays that. He’s just annoying to live with. Why do you think he doesn’t pay rent?

Jiaying
我不是这个意思。我说的是 “live rent-free in your head”,意思是 “总是想着某件事情或某个人”。我们可以用这个表达来谈论自己喜欢或讨厌的事情或人,通常指此事或此人 “在脑海里挥之不去”。

Neil
Ah… that makes sense. I thought you were saying I have a big head and someone could live in it. I didn’t think that comment through.

Jiaying
Well – now you know. We can talk more about it after these examples.

Examples
Juan loves Kika so much. She lives rent-free in his head.

The moment we lost the football final lives rent-free in my head. I can’t stop thinking about what could have been.

You need to stop thinking about your argument with him. He’s living rent-free in your head.

Jiaying
你正在收听的是 BBC英语教学的 “地道英语” 节目。刚刚,我们介绍了表达 “live rent-free in your head” 的意思和用法,它表示 “不由自主地总是想着某件事情或某个人”。

Neil
Yes – for example – I became totally obsessed with videos on decorating cakes and they lived rent-free in my head. I loved it so much.

Jiaying
除了 “live rent-free in your head”,你也可以说 “can’t get something or someone out of your mind”。

Neil
Like my best friend – I can’t stop thinking about him!

Jiaying
Yes – he’s really annoying you. Have you decided what to do with him?

Neil
I have – I told him your address, and now he’s coming to live with you.

Jiaying
Oh, no! Then he’ll be living rent-free in my head!

Neil
Just joking – I would never do that!

Jiaying
Bye, Neil.

Neil
Bye.
