  范例对话:

  A: I bumped into Nick at the barbershop yesterday. He looked great, but I noticed that he had a slight limp when he walked.

  B: I guess you didn't know that he had an operation on his knee.
  A: No, I didn't. How's he feeling?
  B: He says he's feeling like a million dollars now. Apparently the pain in his knee is all gone.
  A: It's good that he's feeling so wonderful. It must be a refreshing change not having to put up with all that discomfort.
