English in a Minute – Roll with the Punches:随机应变

Welcome to English in a Minute from home.

This is a punch. Good thing Anna and Jonathan are social distancing and cannot punch each other.

What are you doing? Sounds like a party over there.

Not yet! I'm going dancing with my friends.

You're going out dancing?

No, silly! I'm dancing with my friends online.

That's a little sad.

In difficult times, you need to roll with the punches.

To "roll with the punches" means to make changes during a hard time.

This idiom comes from the sport of boxing.

Boxers move away from an opponent's punch.

They make a kind of rolling movement when they do this.

And that's English in a Minute.
