一分钟英语:Bury Your Head in the Sand

English in a Minute – Bury Your Head in the Sand:逃避问题

Welcome to English in a Minute!

The beach is such a fun place.

You can swim in the ocean and dig in the sand.

You can even bury things in the sand!

But I wouldn't recommend doing this:

Bury Your Head in the Sand

Jonathan, what are you doing about the plankton problem?

Plankton problem? I don't know about any plankton problem.

I feel like the whole world is burying its head in the sand about the plankton problem.

I'm not avoiding the plankton problem. I know nothing about the plankton problem!

To "bury your head in the sand" means to hide from a problem or unpleasant reality.

But at some point, you will have to face whatever situation you are avoiding.
