|There are healthier ways to meet new people.|
Feifei: 大家好，我是冯菲菲。Why are you looking so happy Diarmuid?
Diarmuid: Well, earlier today, I was outside on my telephone, when a lady asked me for a lighter.
Diarmuid: Yes, I think she might have been trying to smirt with me.
Feifei: 他想和你干什么 smirt?
Diarmuid: Yes, smirt, S.M.I.R.T, smirt. Now smirt is a slang word to describe flirting with another person when you are smoking.
Feifei: It sounds like smoking and flirting have been joined together to make the word smirting.
Diarmuid: Exactly, that is how the word smirting is created.
Feifei: 原来是这个意思，今天早上问 Diarmuid 借火的这个女孩子其实对 Diarmuid 有好感，所以以借火为由和他搭讪。
Diarmuid: Yes, but I didn’t have a lighter, because I don't smoke, so that was the end of the conversation.
Feifei: Was she pretty?
Diarmuid: She was very pretty.
Feifei: Oh well. She'll probably be there tomorrow if you want to talk to her again. 现在在英国几乎所有的公共场所，像办公室，饭馆儿，就是禁烟的，所以想抽烟的朋友们只能去户外抽烟。 What do people usually say when they are smirting?
Diarmuid: It depends. Here is an example of some people smirting:
A: Hi, could I borrow your lighter?
A: Thanks. Are you new here?
B: Yeah, I just started in the IT department.
A: Oh great, I work in the office right next to you.
B: I guess we'll be seeing a lot of each other.
Feifei: All this talk of smirting is making me feel a little lonely. 不知道我什么时候才能遇到梦中的白马王子呀！
Diarmuid: You do know that smoking is bad for you and that there are healthier ways to meet a nice guy than to smirt.
Feifei: I know.
Diarmuid: Ok, well that's all for today.
