“I have good news for you,Mr.Jacobs…and bad news.And news that is neither good nor bad.”
“What’s the bad news?”the patient asked in a choked voice.
“We should not have removed one of your legs.”
“And the good news?”
“The other leg of yours needs not to be removed.”
“Then what is the news that is neither good nor bad?”
“The patient in 634 wants to buy your leather shoes.”
2.chock:使窒息；闷死；使不能呼吸。eg.The smoke from the stove almost choked me .炉子里发出的烟呛得我几乎透不过气来。
