Lesson 75 Different Tastes 不同的口味

“Yuck! That was very distasteful!” exclaimed John. “It was so sour, it distended my stomach!”

“啐,太难喝了。”约翰大声喊着,“它太酸了,我的胃都胀起来了。”

“When you distill your own liquor, sometimes you end up with a bad batch,” whispered Tom. “Here, try some of my homemade wine. I think you’ll be able to draw a distinction between the two.”

“你自己蒸馏造酒,有时会最终弄得一塌糊涂。”汤姆小声说。“来,尝尝我的自制酒。我想你能喝出两者的区别。”

John tried the wine. It caused his face to distort. He looked distraught with nausea He spit it out and dived into the swimming pool to wash out his mouth. “That was awful,” John decried. “You’re right about the distinct taste. However, there’s only one thing distinctive about it. It’s the worst wine in the world! How can you tolerate the taste of this liquid? It neatly disunited my stomach and intestines. Could we possibly have such divergent views on taste?”

约翰尝了一口,立刻脸都歪了,看上去恶心的心烦意乱。他全吐了出来,然后潜入游泳池中冲洗自己的嘴。“太难喝了,”约翰大声埋怨着,“你说得对,味道的确与众不同。但它的出众之处只有一点,它是世界上最糟糕的酒!你怎么能喝得了·这种味?我感觉它使我的胃、肠要分家了。我们对味道的感觉可能有如此大的不同吗?”

“I’m sorry for causing you so much distress,” said Tom. “But at least it distracted you from the terrible aftertaste of the other liquor!”

“很抱歉给你带来这么大的痛苦,”汤姆说,“但它至少让你分心冲淡了那种倒霉酒的余味。”

“What is causing this disturbance?” said the security guard, as he approached John and Tom. “Don’t you know, this is a special school district? It’s against the law to disturb the peace here.”

“这里的骚乱是怎么回事?”保安边问,边走近约翰和汤姆。“你们不知道这里是特别校区吗?扰乱这里的安静是犯法的。”

“Sorry,” said John with a snicker. “I was expressing my enjoyment of these fine and distinguished liquors. Would you like to see if you can distinguish the difference between the two?”

“对不起,”约翰笑着说,“我正说着我如何品尝、享用两种香醇可口,品质超群的美酒。你想尝尝吗?看能否分得清他们?”

“Sure,” replied the security guard, as he took a quick gulp of both. “Very funny. They taste exactly the same. I wouldn’t mind having another one.”

“当然,”保安一边回答,一边每样喝了一大口,“有意思,味道完全一样,我不介意再尝一种的。”

“You’re kidding, right?” said John in a condescending tone.

“你在开玩笑吧?”约翰以一种居高临下的口气说。

“Now listen,” said the security guard with a stern look, “It’s illegal to make or distribute alcoholic beverages without a license. I should arrest you both for the illegal distribution of alcohol!”

“听着,”保安一脸严肃的说,“无照制造或发送含酒精的饮料是非法的。我要以非法发送酒精饮料的罪名逮捕你们!”

“Well, how about having another drink instead?”

“慢着,是不是先尝尝另一种酒再说?”
