Japan Times の『これで英語が通じた!思ったことがズバリ言えるフレーズ」からふだん、会話でよく使う短い言葉。いざ英語で言うとなると…

今週のフレーズ – 75

This is not my day


A: This is not my day. Another bogey.
B: You used up all your luck last week.


一日に悪いことが立て続けに起こった場合に使われる。反対は、Today’s my lucky day. と言う。ほかに不運を表す言葉には、I’m out of luck./I can’t get a break. などがある。これらの表現は、This is not your/his day. のように自分以外の人についても使える。
