蜜蜂看上去繁忙不停，所以当一个人特忙的时候就可以用 as busy as a bee 来形容繁忙的状态; a busy bee 就是我们说的一个大忙人。
- I've been a really busy bee this morning. I've been to the shops, paid my bills, had a haircut and even been for a run.
- Frank is a real busy bee. He's always doing about five projects at once! He needs to take it easy.
另一个短语 to have a bee in your bonnet 意思就是你对某事着了迷，没完没了地谈论那件事。
