Feifei
Are you OK, Sian?

Sian
Yes, of course I am! Can we just get on with the programme?!

Feifei
Um, Sian, have you had your breakfast today?

Sian
No, I haven't. I overslept and then the bus was late and, uh, it's just not been a good day so far!

Feifei
没吃早饭可不行,我觉得你还是先吃点东西再工作吧。Here, have this chocolate bar.

Sian
Oh, sorry. I know I'm a bit hangry this morning. I do tend to get moody when I don't eat. My husband's always complaining about it!

Feifei
Hangry? Hangry 是什么?你是说 angry 吧?

Sian
No, 'hangry'. 'Hangry' describes someone who is angryor irritableas a result of being hungry. Like me todayI'm feeling a bit annoyed because I haven't eaten breakfast yet!

Feifei
You certainly are! Hangry 这个词是由“angry 生气”和“hungry 饥饿”组合而成的;用于描述某人本来已经很饿了,但由于其它各种不顺感觉饿上加怒,特别想发火。

Sian
Yes, that's right. Let's hear a few examples.

Examples
A: This food is taking forever to arrive. I'm not coming to this restaurant again.
B: Oh dear, someone's getting hangry! Let's get you some food quickly!

My boyfriend is a nightmare whenever he misses a meal; he gets so hangry!

People tend to get a bit hangry when their blood sugar level drops.

Feifei
Interesting. 话说我可从来没有 hangry 过,I'm always very chilled.

Sian
Is that right, Feifei? You know, I'm feeling much happier after eating that chocolate bar. Shall we do the programme again? I feel ready now.

Feifei
No! Come on, that will do. I'm starving!

Sian
Oh dear, it seems like you're a bit hangry too, Feifei! Let's get you to the cafe now.

Feifei
Good idea! Let's go.
