Under the weather under the weather under the weather under the weather does that mean I’m sitting under some clouds. Does that mean we often will say I’m feeling a bit under the weather today under the weather. That means I don’t feel very well I don’t I don’t feel I don’t feel very well. I don’t feel so good. I don’t feel so good. This one is very casual and I wouldn’t recommend using that one. I don’t feel good. I don’t feel well. I’m feeling a bit under the weather. It’s not very strong though when you say it. It’s not that you’re violently ill you’re not violently ill you’re not about to die you’re not vomiting usually if you vomit. It means you’re quite ill you’re quite sick if you vomit if you have a very high fever. It’s a very high fever then maybe you wouldn’t say you would not say under the weather. Usually if you say you’re under the weather you’re just not your best. It could be better you’ve felt better. You don’t feel perfect. You don’t feel great. You’re a little sick. Let’s say it’s 20 to 30 percent sick. If we’re going to put a number on it 20 to 30 percent sick. If you had that feeling before you just feel a little slow maybe you have some fatigue maybe you have a very mild fever very mild light fever and maybe your stomach just doesn’t feel good. You have an upset stomach. Have an upset stomach but it’s not the worst. You can maybe still go to work maybe maybe or go to school but if you want to explain why you don’t want to go to work and you call your boss you say I don’t think I can come into work today I’m just feeling really under the weather feeling really under the weather. I’m going to I’m going to take a sick day if that’s OK. Yeah. OK. I hope you feel better tomorrow. Yep. See you tomorrow. Get well soon get well soon get well soon. Is a very common thing people will say when another person is not feeling well. All right. Let’s look at an example. I’m feeling a little under the weather so I don’t think I can go to the movie. I’m feeling a little under the weather so this is when we want to cancel. It’s a really polite way to cancel if you say I’m really really sick. I’m dying. That’s very strong. They might come over to your house to bring you soup but if you’re talking to your friend and you planned to go to a movie you can use this one as a polite way to say that you can’t go. And then maybe you have to read so schedule schedule reschedule whenever I feel under the weather. I sleep a lot and also take a lot of vitamin C whenever I feel under the weather. That means every time every time. That’s what whenever means every time I don’t feel well I sleep. Sleep sleep is the best way to get over that. Get over get over maybe a bug a bug a bug. Well sometimes when we have the flu or some kind of virus that makes us feel not very well we say I’ve got a bug I’ve got a bug I know that sounds weird like there’s a little bug inside. Well not really. No but we still say I’ve got a bug when we don’t feel well it could be very serious or not maybe we’re very ill if we’re very ill. We would not say under the weather but if we’ve got a stomach bug a stomach bug or a bit of a stomach bug sometimes to make it softer or more gentle we say a bit of a bit of a stomach bug or I’ve got a bit of a flu or a bit of a cold then we say get over it. To talk about it no matter what it is. So in your example describe the last time you were feeling under the weather what did you do on that day. Did you stay home from school. Did you stay home from work or did you go to work. And what was that like. Tried to use the expression and I will see you in the next one.
