  early shopper 采购过早

����Ӣ����ѵ

  it was christmas and the judge was in a
benevolent mood as he questioned the prisoner. "what are you charged with?" he
asked.

  那天是圣诞节,法官在审讯犯人时也有点恻隐之心。“你为什么而被起诉?”他问。

  "doing my christmas shopping early," replied
the defendant.

  “采购圣诞节物品过早。”被告答。

  "that's no offense," replied the judge, "how
early were you doing this shopping?"

  “这不算犯法,”法官回答,“你购物多早?”

  "before the store opened," countered the
prisoner.

  在商店开门之前,“犯人应道。

  caroline: what should i get uncle
teddy?

  drake: you could get him a tie.

  caroline: are you kidding? that's the
stupidest gift one can buy. i don't want to get a tie.

  drake: why not?

  caroline: everybody gets men ties for
christmas. it's too boring. everybody buys either ties or sweaters. i want a
more unique gift.

  drake: well, you can buy him a pet iguana
then.

  caroline: that's a cool idea. at least it
would be a surprise. but i'm afraid he wouldn't take care of it.

  drake: he would think you were crazy,
caroline.

  caroline: yes. an iguana is too strange for a
gift, and a tie is too normal. so i have to find something halfway
between.

  drake: how much do you want to
spend?

  caroline: well, he was very good to me. he
helped me edit my essay for the scholarship contest. so i want to spend at least
75 dollars.

  drake: alright, i have an idea. you know he
carries that conservative-looking briefcase every day.

  caroline: yes. drake: well, he isn't a
lawyer, so i don't think he needs to have a briefcase like that.

  caroline: what should he have
then?

  drake: i think he would appreciate having a
very fine leather bag. but more like a bookbag or shoulder bag. you know, not so
hard and square like a briefcase.

  caroline: i think that's a great idea. men
look great with that kind of bag. where can we buy one?

  drake: i don't think this mall has a leather
goods store. so we have to go to state street.

  caroline: alright. we can go later then.
drake: we can buy something for mom and dad here, and then go buy uncle teddy's
gift on state street.

  caroline: good plan. what should we get for
mom though?

  drake: she said she wants one of those
automatic foot massagers. i think they sell them at sears.

  caroline: alright. we can go check at sears
and see if they have them. and what about dad?

  drake: how about the iguana?

  caroline: i think it would be a great joke.
but i know we'd have to take the iguana back. and the pet store might not let
us. so why don't we get him something else? some clothes maybe.

  drake: a tie? caroline: oh, shut up about
ties! forget about ties, why not?

  drake: i was just kidding.

  凯洛琳:送什么给泰迪叔叔好呢?

  杰瑞克:可以送他领带啊。

  凯洛琳:开什么玩笑? 那是最蠢的礼物了,我不要买领带。

  杰瑞克:为什么不呢?

  凯洛琳:大家都送男生领带当圣诞礼物,那太死板了。
不是送领带就是送毛衣,我要送点特别的。

  杰瑞克:那么你可以买只宠物鬣蜥蜴给他。

  凯洛琳:不错的点子,至少他会很惊讶。 不过我怕他不会养。

  杰瑞克:他会认为你疯了,凯洛琳。 凯洛琳:没错。送蜥蜴太奇怪,送领带又太普通。
所以要取其中。

  杰瑞克:你要花多少钱? 凯洛琳:他对我很好。 他帮我修改要参赛拿奖学金的文章,
所以我至少要送他75 美元的东西。

  杰瑞克:那好,我想到了。 你知道他每天都提着那个老旧的公文包。

  凯洛琳:是的。

  杰瑞克:他不是律师,不需要用那种公文包吧。

  凯洛琳:那么他该用什么包包?

  杰瑞克:他会喜欢用皮制的包包。 但要更像是书包或是背包。
不像公文包那样又硬又方正。

  凯洛琳:这主意不错,男生背那种背包很好看。 哪里买得到呢?

  杰瑞克:这个购物中心没有皮制品的商店。 我们必须到斯泰特街上。

  凯洛琳:好,那么等会儿去买吧。

  杰瑞克:我们可以在这儿买爸妈的礼物,
然后再去斯泰特街上买泰迪叔叔的礼物。

  凯洛琳:就这么办,那么买什么给妈妈呢?

  杰瑞克:她说她想要一台脚部电动按摩机。 我想在希尔斯有卖的。

  凯洛琳:好,我们去希尔斯看看有没有。 那么送爸爸的呢?

  杰瑞克:送鬣蜥蜴如何?

  凯洛琳:那会很好笑。 不过我们得把鬣蜥蜴扛回去,而且宠物店可能不会让我们这么做。
我们何不买别的?买衣服吧。

  杰瑞克:送领带?

  凯洛琳:别再说领带了,别提了,好吗?

  杰瑞克:我只是开开玩笑。
