Go Super to Listen Go Super!

Lamar Odom, who plays basketball for the Los Angeles Lakers and reality TV star Khloe Kardashian don’t seem like the kind of couple who would spend all their time relaxing at home. Khloe’s reality show, Meet the Kardashians, documented her and her sisters’ fun, crazy lives, including wild trips to Mexico and Las Vegas. But Lamar says marriage has changed Khloe. It turns out she’s more of a homebody than a party girl.

A homebody is someone whose interests and life all revolve around the home. A homebody would rather stay in on a Saturday night watching a video or reading on the couch than go out and party with her friends.

Homebodies make their homes cozy and warm. For Lamar, the fact that his new wife is a homebody is a good thing, because it means she has turned his house into a more welcoming place to spend time. But some people think homebodies are boring. If you never, ever leave your house, you’re not just a homebody, you’re home-bound.

Are you a homebody, or do you like to go out?


1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

“My boyfriend is such a homebody, all he ever wants to do is stay in and watch movies.”

“Kara is a wild child, but her sister is a total homebody.”

“I think homebodies are boring, I’m more of a party animal.”

Yeah, I think I am a HOMEBODY !

I love staying home on weekends and watching movies.

Going out is also OK, sometimes it's even greater than staying in. So, I'm NOT  home-bound!

Maria Cali, you're thinking of "homeboy".  A "Homebody"is a domestic person, someone who spends a lot of time and effort in the home.
