核心句型:
To me he was only trying to stir up a storm in a teacup.

我认为他只不过在小题大做。

to stir up a storm in a teacup直译过来就是:“在一个茶壶里搅起一场风暴”,这个短语的正确意思是:“小题大做”。因此,当美国人说"To me he was only trying to stir up a storm in a teacup."时,他/她要表达的意思就是:"To me he was only trying to fuss about trifles."、"To me he was only trying to make a fuss."。

情景对白:
Shirley: This morning my boss said that he would fire anyone who talks our project in public.

雪莉:今天早上,我老板说,不管是谁在公开场合谈论这个项目,都会开除他。

Benjamin: Oh, forget it. To me he was only trying to stir up a storm in a teacup.

本杰明:噢,算了吧,我认为他只不过在小题大做而已。

搭配句积累:
①He used to fire people who arrived late.

他过去常常会开除迟到的人。

②You shouldn't have believed him.

你真不该相信他。

③Nothing of the sort!

没那回事儿!

④Don't care about what he has said.

不要介意他说什么。
