Lily: Mom, Betty has a necklace, she told me it is worth one thousand bucks.

想了半天 two ways:
think long and hard
give it a lot of thought
-------------
dwell on it for a while
visit this question for quite some time
-------------
People outside of Asia do not eat dogs; dogs are pets, so we think.

I think the most brilliant part of this dialogue is the dog eating part. Lily was trying to outdo her friend in making outlandish claims, and what could be more outlandish than eating dog while overseas?

意外收获

这段对话是实实在在的生活记录,我真的不知道Lily 的小脑袋瓜子里怎么会想出“在外国吃了一条狗”出来,她很少出远门,别说吃狗了,她简直是啥都不吃,头一回吹牛,这已是她的极限了,她也不知在有些国家狗可是人家的宝贝,吃不得的。

非常感谢大家的帮助!

我能做什么?
