Let’s begin by listening to today’s conversation. Listen carefully.


Right off the bat
Jake: Hey, I’m here at your apartment but I can’t find any street parking.
Jen: Oh really? Then you can park inside my apartment garage. I’ll get you a guest-parking pass.
Jake: That would be great!
Jen: I’ll just need your license plate number right now.
Jake: Umm…right now? Sorry, I wouldn’t know my plate number right off the bat.
Jen: Then just meet me in front of the main entrance.

Jake가 저에게 “Hey, I’m here at your apartment but I can’t find any street parking. 네 아파트에 와 있는데 주차할 곳이 전혀 없어” 라고 말하자, 제가 “Oh really? Then you can park inside my apartment garage. 그래? 그러면 아파트 안에 있는 주차장에다 차를 놓아야겠다. I’ll get you a guest-parking pass from the security. 내가 관리원한테서 방문객 주차권을 받아올게.” 라고 말했죠. 이어서 Jake가 “That would be great! 그게 좋겠다 !” 라고 하자 제가 “I’ll just need your license plate number right now.” 네 차 번호 좀 불러줘!” 라고 말했습니다. Jake가 “Umm…right now? 지금 당장? Sorry, I wouldn’t know my plate number right off the bat. 미안하지만 차 번호가 생각이 안 나서 지금 못 알려주겠는데.” 라고 하니까 제가 “Then just meet me in front of the main entrance. 그러면 아파트 정문 앞에서 보자!” 라고 답했습니다.

Today’s phrase is right off the bat입니다. Right off the bat means instantly, immediately without delay. Right off the bat는 ‘즉시, 곧바로 또는 아주 처음부터’라는 뜻입니다. 야구 경기에서 타자가 공을 잘 친 뒤 바로 1루로 달려나가는 것에 비유한 표현이죠. 예를 한번 들어볼까요? 친구가 공항에서 호텔까지 거리가 얼마나 되느냐고 물어보는데 모르겠으면 “I can’t tell you how far it is right off the bat, but I can find out. 지금 당장은 모르겠고 금방 알아봐 줄게.”라고 말할 수 있어요. Here is another example. 처음 본 사람이 따뜻하고 친절해 보일 때 이렇게 말할 수 있겠죠 “I could tell right off the bat that she is a kind person. 그분을 보자마자 친절한 사람이라는 것을 알 수 있었습니다.” 라고 말이죠.
