那故事我们已经讲过许多遍了。这次讲的是Charles Dickens的《A Christmas Carol》最后一段的火鸡故事。大致是这样:

`An intelligent boy.’ said Scrooge. `A remarkable boy. Do you know whether they’ve sold the prize Turkey that was hanging up there -- Not the little prize Turkey: the big one.’ 

`What, the one as big as me.’ returned the boy.

`What a delightful boy.’ said Scrooge. `It’s a pleasure to talk to him. Yes, my buck.’ 

`It’s hanging there now,’ replied the boy.

`Is it.’ said Scrooge. `Go and buy it.’ 

`Walk-er.’ exclaimed the boy.

`No, no,’ said Scrooge, `I am in earnest. Go and buy it, and tell them to bring it here, that I may give them the direction where to take it. Come back with the man, and I’ll give you a shilling. Come back with him in less than five minutes and I’ll give you half-a-crown.’

...

`I’ll send it to Bon Cratchit’s.’ whispered Scrooge, rubbing his hands, and splitting with a laugh. `He shan’t know who sends it. It’s twice the size of Tiny Tim. Joe Miller never made such a joke as sending it to Bob’s will be.’

记得去伦敦Charles Dickens的故居,看到他手写的菜谱很有趣。 -可能成功的P- 给 可能成功的P 发送悄悄话 可能成功的P 的博客首页 可能成功的P 的个人群组 (0 bytes) () 11/26/2021 postreply 12:16:24
