자막

Lia:
Do you have plans for today?

John:
No, I don’t. Why are you asking?

Lia:
On the spur of the moment, I’d like to drive to the coast. Would you like to come?

John: Sure! That sounds like fun!

Lia:
Spur of the moment is an expression we use in English when something is done suddenly and without preparation or advanced planning. In our conversation we are all of a sudden deciding to take a trip to the coast without having planned it ahead of time. Sometimes these things work out just fine, but sometimes things should be planned out at least a little bit ahead of time. For example, I wouldn’t want to take an international trip, run a marathon, or quit my job on the spur of the moment. Here are some other examples of our expression. On the spur of the moment, I decided to cut my hair very short. My girls decided to go shopping on the spur of the moment. I hope they bought me a present!
