M: The train is just about to leave. Good thing you got here in time.
M: Only about four hours. I‘m probably going to sleep the entire way.
L：(train leaving station, announcer in background) 你想在火车上睡觉？不行，你睡觉我跟谁说话呐？
M: Li Hua, you are full of energy. But I‘m drained, I‘m going to sleep.
M: Yeah. Drained, it means exhausted.
M: The word can be used two ways. To be physically drained and emotionally drained. For example, if a couple fight all the time, they would be emotionally tired, which you can also call drained.
M: Yeah, you understand. You don‘t even seem drained after the mid-terms.
M: Yeah, you were emotionally drained. Well, if you don‘t want me to sleep on the train, we‘d better go get more coffee. Let‘s go to the Cafe Car.
M: This coffee is going to keep me awake the entire trip.
M: Geez, Li Hua, I don‘t think I will be nearly as wired as you are.
M: You are right. This word has a couple of meanings. One means to be energetic and the other means to have nervous energy.
L：这么说，wired可以指对某件事很兴奋，也可以说对某件事感到紧张而努力去做。要是我精力充沛，可以说：I am wired；要是在大考前我感到很紧张而抓紧时间复习功课，也可以说：I‘m wired。是这个意思吗？
M: Yeah, that‘s right. But it has one other meaning as well. Wired means to be connected to something, such as being wired into the Internet, or being wired into a discussion.
L：噢，跟什么东西联系在一起也可以说是wired，例如和因特网连接。你最后说的wired into a discussion 我不太懂，那是什么意思啊？
M: You have been participating in the meetings to make decisions about our college, right?
M: Ok, your participation in the college‘s meetings and being involved in those decisions means you are wired into the discussion.
L：噢，我参加这些会议，参预决策的讨论，这就可以说：I‘m wired into the discussion.
M: Yep. After all this coffee I have had, I don‘t feel so drained. In fact, after the next cup, I think I‘m going to be pretty wired.
M: Thanks so much, Li Hua!
