English in a Minute – Burst Someone's Bubble:煞风景

Welcome to English in a Minute.

These are bubbles! They make people happy.

But what happens if we burst them?

Burst Someone's Bubble

Jonathan, I finally got a reservation at that new Turkish restaurant.

I hate to burst your bubble, Anna, but it's not very good.

And I love Turkish food.

Well, maybe you just ordered the wrong things.

Oh, I ordered everything they had to offer.

If you burst someone's bubble, you tell them their expectations about something are not true.

"Bursting someone's bubble" can make them feel pretty disappointed.

In this case, I think Anna will be okay.

And that's English in a Minute.
