I was tossing and turning last night.
我们今天来学一个关于晚上睡不好的地道说法。中文有一个成语叫做『辗转反侧』，英文相对应的用法就是 be tossing and turning 注意此用法常用进行时的时态。toss 本来意思是『轻轻地抛或扔』譬如 He tossed the ball to Anna. = He tossed Anna the ball. 他把球抛给安纳。在此为不及物动词，表『摇摆，颠簸』。
A: Hey Ted. I need a decent night's sleep. I was tossing and turning last night.
B: Indeed. You look very tired today.
*a decent night's sleep 一夜象样的睡眠
