Dear all,

How to say 賴床in English?
I’ve googled but got no answer.
Could it be that expats get up on time :?

And please make a sentence for me.

Thanks!

Debbie

sleepyhead.

Obama can be a sleepyhead sometimes and he would appreciate if Michelle could wake him up with her warm attention.

Dear Debbie,

You may also try the following:

sleep in: to sleep until after the time your usually get up in the moring; to sleep late on purpose
Ex.: After this week's work, I will sleep in on Saturday.

sleep late: sleep later than usual or customary
Ex.: We sometimes sleep late at the weekends (= until late in the moring).
Ex.: At weekends I like to sleep late.

lie in: to stay in bed after the time you usually get up
Ex.: It’s a holiday tomorrow, so you can lie in.

lie-in (n.): a time when you stay in bed longer than normal in the morning
Ex.: a Sunday morning lie-in

hit the snooze button
Ex.: I like to hit the snooze button. / I never hit the snooze button.
Ex.: If you had your choice, would you rather know how to wake up early or stop hitting the snooze button?
Ex.: Stop hitting the snooze button and awaken!


Actually we had a discussion over this issue on YOYO forum in 2007. Check it out:

Sleep like a baby? (11/28 Wed.)
