今天Larry和李华一起去参加《哈利·波特》的电影首映会。Li Hua非常喜欢饰演哈利·波特的丹尼尔·拉德克利夫，兴奋不已。Li Hua会学到两个常用语：glam和five o'clock shadow.
LL: WOW. Lihua, you must be really excited to meet Harry Potter in person.
(The cast of Harry Potter walk out)
LL: Oh look, it's the cast! They sure look glam!
LL: You're absolutely correct! Glam means glamorous. It describes someone wearing fashionable clothing and make-up, especially when done excessively.
LL: Not at all. Glam, like glamorous, is used to describe people who dress up in a way that they really stand out, but stand out in a good way. It is often used to describe celebrities.
LL: I'm sure Daniel Radcliffe will be very happy to hear it.
LH: Larry, you're such a glam today!
LL: Uh, thank you? Why are you saying it to me? I'm only wearing jeans and a t-shirt.
LL: Well, you said "you're such a glam today". Which means you used the word glam as a noun. However, it is an adjective, just like the original word, glamorous. So you would have to say, "you're so glam today".
LH: 我明白了，glam是形容词，所以我刚应该说"you're so glam today"，而不是"you're such a glam today."
LL: Yup, that's right.
(The actors are slowly walking towards Larry and Li Hua's direction)
LL: Hmmm...slow down Lihua. Are you sure that's Harry? I didn't know Harry has a five o'clock shadow.
LL: No, I mean he has a beard. A five o'clock shadow is facial stubble, it sometimes describes a man's beard at the end of the day.
LH: 啊？原来five o'clock shadow是指胡子，就是男生一天下来，到下午五点就会长出来的一点点胡子，所以人们就用five o'clock shadow来形容男生脸上的胡子茬子。
LL: Yes. That is correct. After a day's work, many men will have a noticeable growth of facial hair. Since most people finish work around five o'clock, it's called a five o'clock shadow.
LH: 啊，Larry, you have a five o'clock shadow too! 你今天早上没有刮胡子吧?
LL: No I don't. Do I? (try to distract Lihua) Look! Harry's getting closer, don't you want to take pictures?
(Li Hua zooms in to take a picture of Harry)
LH: 他真有 a five o'clock shadow 耶……不过还是好帅！
LL: Ai, Li Hua. I didn't know you were so attracted to glam celebrities.
LH: Not all the glam celebrities. 只有哈利！
LL: But he has a five o'clock shadow. Didn't you say that you can't stand men who have a beard.
LL: Hey, practice using what you just learned! And tell him how handsome he is.
LH: Harry! You have a five o'clock shadow!!
(People turn around to stare at Li Hua)
LH: 等等, 我刚说了什么……
LL: Harry, she meant to say you are very glam!
LH: 哎, 真丢脸……
