Lesson40 Food and talk 进餐与交谈


Last week at a dinner-party, the hostess asked me to sit next to Mrs Rumbold. Mrs Rumbold was a large, unsmiling lady in a tight black dress. She did not even look up when I took my seat beside her. Her eyes were fixed on her plate and in a short time, she was busy eating. I tried to make conversation.

‘ A new play is coming to” The Globe” soon,’ I said. ‘Will you be seeing it ?’ ‘ No,’ she answered. ‘Will you be spending your holidays abroad this year ?’ I asked. ‘ No,’ she answered.

‘ Will you be staying in England?’ I asked. ‘ No,’ she answered.

In despair, I asked her whether she was enjoying her dinner.

‘ Young man,’ she answered,’ if you ate more and talked less, we would both enjoy our dinner !’

在上星期的一次宴会上,女主人安排我坐在兰伯尔德夫人的身旁。兰伯尔德夫人是一位身材高大、表情严肃的女人,穿一件紧身的黑衣服。当我在她身旁坐下来的时候,她甚至连头都没有抬一下。她的眼睛盯着自己的盘子,不一会儿就忙着吃起来了。我试图找个话题和她聊聊。

“一出新剧要来‘环球剧场’上演了,”我说,“您去看吗?”

“不,”她回答。

“您今年去国外度假吗?”我又问。

“不,”她回答。

“您就呆在英国吗?”我问。

“不,”她回答。

失望之中我问她饭是否吃得满意。

“年轻人,”她回答说,“如果你多吃点,少说点,我们两个都会吃得好的!”
