一般我們對 thick 這個字的理解是「厚的」

但是在這個片語中,其實 thick 的意思是指「強烈的」

當我們說 in the thick of it/something

是在這件事進行得如火如荼的時候,在事情的中心點或最激烈的部份

比如吵架吵到最激烈時

或是比賽比到最精采時


我們來造些句:

In the thick of the game, the star player suddenly fainted.
(在比賽進行到如火如荼的時候,那個明星球員突然昏倒了。)

Sorry I can’t talk right now. I’m in the thick of it at work.
(抱歉我現在不能和你講話。我工作正忙著。)

Kate is in the thick of preparing for her finals. Let’s not disturb her.
(凱特現在正忙著準備期末考。我們不要打擾她。)
