pumped Everyone at Culips is especially pumped because the summer weather has arrived in Montreal. So, we thought we would make an episode all about feeling excited and full of energy! Here we look at the expressions of pumped up, fired up, stoked, and worked up. We are talking about being enthusiastic, energetic, and excited in this episode. Yeah!

Maura Harp


Harp: Well I’m going on a holiday very soon so I’m pumped about that.
Maura: When are you going away?
Harp: I’m leaving really soon. I’m leaving in a couple days.
Maura: And where are you going?
Harp: I’m going back home to visit my parents.
Maura: So, is that why you’re pumped?
Harp: That is why I’m pumped. It’s been a long time.
Maura: So what else could someone be pumped about?
Harp: Really, you could be pumped about anything: a hockey game, a competition.

    Doesn’t ‘fired’ means that you fired from your job? :)

    Thanks for the podcast, btw!

    Yes, you’re right! We talk about that in our Lipservice. To fire a person means that they lose their job. But to get someone fired up means that they are excited!

    Glad you enjoyed the episode!
