conch shell person (someone who looks quiet, but is actually very rambunctious once you get to know them)

海螺人

(hǎiluó rén)

A: When I went to the club yesterday I ran into that classmate who was the quietest girl in our class. Why would someone with a personality like hers go to a club?

我昨天去夜店的时候居然碰到了我们以前班里最文静的女孩,她那种性格的人怎么会去夜店呢?

(wǒ zuótiān qù yèdiàn de shíhòu jūrán pènɡdào le wǒmén yǐqián bānlǐ zuì wénjìnɡ de nǚhái, tā nàzhǒnɡ xìnɡɡé de rén zěnme huì qù yèdiàn ne?)

B: Nothing impossible about that. There are conch shell people everywhere today. They look quiet on the outside, but when you listen up close to their heart you hear a tidal wave.

那有什么不可能的,现在的海螺人多得很呢。他们都是表面看起来很文静,但如果你仔细听,他们内心深处特别浪。

(nà yǒu shénme bù kěnénɡ de, xiànzài de hǎiluó rén duō de hěn ne. tāmén dōushì biǎomiàn kàn qǐlái hěn wénjìnɡ, dàn rúɡuǒ nǐ zǐxì tīnɡ, tāmén nèixīn shēnchǔ tèbié lànɡ.)

A: You really get it. Could it be you are one of these types of people too?

你这么了解,该不会你也是这样的人吧?

(nǐ zhème liǎojiě, ɡāi búhuì nǐ yěshì zhèyànɡ de rén ba?)
