英语小故事:Amazing Pet 一只“超级棒”的宠物

 A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy a pet that can do everything. The shop owner suggests a faithful dog.

  有个人走进一家宠物店,跟老板说要买一只万能宠物。店老板建议他买只忠心的狗。

 The man replies, "Come on, a dog?"

  那个人回答:“得了吧,狗行吗?”

 The owner says, "How about a cat?"

  老板说:“那猫怎么样?”

 The man replies, "No way! A cat certainly can't do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!"

  那个人回答:“不行啦!猫当然不会是万能的。我要的是万能宠物!”




 The shop owner thinks for a minute, then says, "I've got it! a centipede!"

  店老板想了一会儿说道:“有了!就是蜈蚣!”

 The man says, "A centipede? I can't imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay... I'll try a centipede."

  那个人说:“蜈蚣?真难想象蜈蚣会是万能的,不过也好...我就买一条蜈蚣试试看。”

 He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, "Clean the kitchen."

  他把蜈蚣带回家后跟蜈蚣说:“去打扫厨房。”





 Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and... It's immaculate! All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away; the counter-tops cleaned; the appliances sparkling; the floor waxed.

  过了三十分钟,他走进厨房一看...居然全部都干干净净的!所有的盘子和银制餐具都洗好、烘干、各归各位;厨具台面也清洁溜溜;每种用具都闪闪发亮;连地板都打了蜡。

 He is absolutely amazed.

  他看得目瞪口呆、惊愕连连。

 He says to the centipede, "go clean the living room."

  他跟蜈蚣说:“去打扫客厅。”

 Twenty minutes later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed; the furniture cleaned and dusted; the pillows on the sofa plumped; Plants watered. The man thinks to himself, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!"

  过了二十分钟,他走进客厅一看,地毯已用吸尘器吸过;加剧也擦得一尘不染;沙发上的枕头也已拍松;植物也浇了水。那个人心想:“我从来没看过这么神奇的事,这真的是一只万能宠物!”





 Next he says to the centipede, "Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper."

  接着他跟蜈蚣说:“去街角帮我买份报纸。”

 The centipede walks out the door. 10 minutes later... no centipede. 20 minutes later... no centipede. 30 minutes later... no centipede.

  蜈蚣于是走出大门。10分钟过去了...蜈蚣还没回来;20分钟过去了...蜈蚣还没回来;30分钟过去了...蜈蚣还是没有回来。

 By this point the man is wondering what's going on. So he goes to the front door, opens it... and there's the centipede sitting right outside.

  那个人开始纳闷到底发生了什么事,于是走到大门打开一看...蜈蚣居然就坐在外面。





 The man says, "hey!! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What's the matter?!"

  那个人说:“我不是45分钟前就叫你去街角的商店帮我买份报纸吗?到底是怎么回事?”

 The centipede says, "I'm goin'! I'm goin'! I'm just putting on my shoes!"

  蜈蚣说:“这就去!这就去!我的鞋子快穿好了!”
