New Year's Dinner

2006-07-01 14:31

As in many homes on New Year's Day, my wife and I faced the annual conflict of which was more important - the football games on television, or the dinner itself. To keep peace, I ate dinner with the rest of the family, and even lingered for some pleasant after-dinner conversation before retiring to the family room to turn on the game.

过新年时,像很多家庭一样,我和妻子会面临一场一年一度的口舌之争,到底哪个更重要——电视上的足球比赛还是宴会本身。为了不再起争端,我便同家人共进了晚餐,甚至悠闲地参与了令人愉快的饭后谈天。之后,我就溜到家庭活动室,开始看比赛。

Several minutes later, my wife came downstairs and graciously even bought a cold drink for me. She smiled, kissed me on the cheek and asked what the score was. I told her it was the end of the third quarter and that the score was still nothing to nothing.

几分钟后,我妻子下楼来,还通情达理地给我捎了一杯饮料。她满面笑容,吻了吻我的脸颊,问了问我比分如何。我告诉她比赛已过四分之三,比分仍是零比零。

"See?" she said, continuing to smile, "You didn't miss a thing."

“看到么?”她继续笑着说,“你啥也没落下。”
