English speakers love to make slang out of words that describe temperature. Something that is cool is good. Someone who is hot is good looking. So, yes, you want to be both hot and cool. It’s confusing, we know.

“Hot” is an adjective. But did you know there’s a noun form of this slang term as well? If you think someone is hot, that person is a hottie.

Mason has been sad for a long time because Ella loves Jeff and not him. But suddenly, he seems very happy. Let’s find out why he’s dancing around the office without a proper shirt on.

说英语的人喜欢将描述温度的词作为俚语使用。说某物很酷 (cool),意思是说此物很好。说某人很辣 (hot),说明此人样貌非凡。所以,你想同时获得辣和酷的评价。我们知道,这样表达会让人不解。
“辣”是一个形容词。但你是否知道,这个俚语还有名词形式?如果你认为某人很辣,那么可称此人为“辣妹”。
梅森已经痛苦了很长一段时间,因为艾拉爱的是杰夫而不是他。但突然间,他似乎非常开心。让我们看看他为什么会在办公室中又蹦又跳,并且没穿正装衬衫。

Jason:  Hey, Mason. It’s a little cool in here. You don’t want to put a shirt on?

Jeff:  Uh, yeah. Not to mention this is a place of business. I’m sure you’re violating some sort of company policy, if not the health code. What’s the deal?

Mason:  I got myself a hottie.

Jason:  You mean like a fever? Are you sick?

Mason:  No! If there’s a cure for this, man, I don’t want it.

Jeff:  Alright. What’s the deal? You’re acting strange. Like, even stranger than usual.

Mason:  Oh, Jeff. Jeff, Jeff, Jeff. There was a time that I envied you. You know? That I thought you had something special going on with a certain someone whom I don’t think I need to name, who might have been the hottest hottie in the entire hot little world. Who walked around in it…

Jeff:  OK, OK, OK.

Mason:  ...with her hot little shoes…

Jeff:  That’s enough. Stop talking about my girlfriend like that.

Mason:  Why would I talk about your girlfriend? I don’t even need to think about your girlfriend anymore. I’ve got a hottie of my own.

Jeff:  Yeah, right.

Mason:  I met a girl, guys! A really attractive girl! A total hottie.

Jason:  That’s great, Mason! I’m happy for you. You should bring her to the wedding.

Jeff:  What? This guy? There’s no way. This has got to be a trick or something to make Ella jealous.

Marni:  What is going on here? Stop! Mason, stop! We leave you guys alone for ten minutes and you’re fighting and…

Jeff:  This bod’s insured.

Devan:  Jason, what happened?

Jason:  I guess Mason got himself a hottie.

Devan:  What? Like, a real, attractive girl? Like, a real one?

Mason:  Guys! Why is it so hard to believe that I could actually get a girlfriend? Not just a girlfriend, but a hot one who thinks I am a hottie too? Huh?

Marni:  Mason, we believe you and I think it’s great, but I just need you to go and put a shirt on, OK?

Mason:  I get it, Marni. It’s a little too hot for you around the office. It’s hard for you ladies to get your work done.

Marni:  Sure.

Mason:  Yeah, I get it, maybe the guys too. That’s cool. That’s cool. Just, you know, let me know when you need another ticket to the gun show.

Jeff:  I’ll see you in court!

Mason is not wearing a shirt at work and is in an usually good mood. He explains that he has a new girlfriend and that she is a hottie. But Jeff doesn’t believe him. He thinks it’s a trick to make Ella jealous.

This remark makes Mason angry and he starts to fight Jeff. Marni and Devan arrive and stop the fight. Jason tells them that Mason has a hottie. They don’t believe it either. Marni asks Mason to put a shirt on.

One thing about having a hottie for your boyfriend or girlfriend is that it usually makes you feel like a hottie too. Mason believes that Marni wants him to put on a shirt because he’s just too hot. Marni lets him believe it.

Do you think Mason really has a hot new girlfriend? Who do you think is the hottest hottie in the world?

Hottie is not someone with hotness, but someone that can make you feel hot.

CatcheR, it’s just a wrap when you buy sweets. The wrapp should be eye-catching, otherwise who’ll buy it then? The wrap also gives pleasure and pleasure is one of the constituents of happiness people strive to.

Catcher, if a girl loves someone who’s hottie, I think it’s love because of pleasure but is there any virture, goodnes? One day hottie will age and won’t be that hot anymore. So, being hot is not enough, I think. I just instantaneous pleasure. Though being hottie is useful to fall in love from the first sight and it’s in all ages, especially among men Laughing

If a girl saying that she loves someone because he is a hottie, I think that’s love but no more than self desire, and so vice versa.

Ryo, if the man I love behaved like Mason, I wouldn’t be Irene, but Ella or somebody else.:)))


To tell the truth, I’m  not sure if I could love a guy who is not wearing a shirt at work in order to show that he got himself a hottie. Undecided


I don’t like stupid men. Nevertheless I admit my man can perfom a crazy dead because of love. I think it can be a romantic action, but not running about showing his naked body.:)

To love someone with all our heart is a precious gift. We can’t get such gifts  time after time.  Love is not a game if it’s a real love. How to forget the one we love? How to cross the person we are falling for from our mind? It’s impossible to do. We can lie to ourselves, we can think we are strong enough to forget, but , no, all-absorbing pains inside our mind keeps us being crazy of love.


I can’t live without love because in such a case I feel dead. If I love, I give all myself to a man, but I still remember that I am a woman who must respect myself and never behave like a rug who is ready to beg a man to stay with me. I know, I will die day by day without my love, but I will never kneel asking for love.


Well, let’s go to the subject of the dialog. If Mason really has a new hottie, everybody will know it very soon, but if it was just a stupid behaviour, I feel pity to such kind of man. In any case, he is a strange person, as for me.


The hottest hottie in the world is the man I love because I can’t see others.

Hah!)) Such a funny guy! In fact, I really doubt on him getting a real hottie, cos hotty girls normally  admire more self-confident and self-sufficient persons. Essentially, that’s the stuff a man needs to be a hottie, not just guns as I see it. Girls, correct me if you find me wrong))


Considering male hotties,  George Clooney is the best of all. To talk about girls, they all are hotties, realy hard to notice who’s the most hotty of them=)
