Lesson 12 What Job Do I Want? 我想做什么工作?

Have you heard of the aphorism, "Procrastination is the thief of time'? I think it applies to me. I need to thinking about a job for which I have apposite skills. I think it would appease my parents if I do so this summer. Otherwise, I'll have to make an applogy to them for brrowing money again.

你听说过“拖延是盗窃时间的盗贼”这句格言吗?我想这句话对我来说是非常适用。我得开始考虑我能胜任的适当工作了。我想如果我今年夏天就开始考虑,父母一定会倍感宽慰。否则,我就得为再次向他们借钱而道歉。

Should I be a chef? It would be fun to appease the appetite of hungry people. But I don't even know how to operate the simply appliances in my kitchen!

我该做个厨师吗?满足饥饿者的胃口会很有趣。但我连自家厨房里最简单的用具都不会使!

Maybe I can appraise property for a real estate company. How hard can it be to make an appraisal? But I'd have to be good at observing the appreciable differences between various properties.

也许我可以为一家房地产公司做资产评估。做评估有什么难的?不过,我得有本事观察出不同财产间的明显差别。

Perhaps I should be a criminal lawyer. I could use my big sad eyes to appeal to the judge for mercy. However, I don't think my parents would appreciate my choice. Defending murderers and thieves would appall them.

也许我该做个刑事律师。我可以用我那双忧郁的大眼睛来恳求法官的宽恕。但父母不会理解我的选择。为杀人犯和小偷辩护会使他们吓得魂不附体。

What about being a pliceman! I could apprehend crinimals and put them in prison. I can imagine the warm feeling of appreciation I would get for saving someone's life. On second thought, I don't think I can be an applicant for a position that involves guns.

当个警察怎么样?我可以逮捕小偷,把他们关进监狱。我能想象到在挽救某人性命后备受感激的温暖感觉。考虑再三,我想我还是别申请要使枪的工作为好。

I could be a politician. I'd have the power to appoint people to positions of importance. But then I'd have to make really difficult decisions like how to apportion our limited water supply.

我可以做个政治家。我将拥有任命重要官职的权利。但我还得做出一些确实困难的决定,比如如何分配我们有限的水资源供应量。

What I'd really to be is an NBA basketball player like Michael Jordan. He's the apotheosis of athletes. Everyone applaunds his amazing skills. But I should be more realistic, shouldn't I?

我的真实想法是成为迈克.乔丹式的NBA篮球选手。乔丹是所有运动员的完美典范。每个人都为他惊人的球技欢呼。不过我应该现实些,对吧?

I think I better start with a simpler job. This summer, I'll submit an application to McDonald!

我想我还是先干点容易的活算了。今年夏天,我会像麦当劳递一份求职申请.
