Lesson 104 Furry Furniture 毛皮家具

Michael wanted to furnish his living room. He had gainful employment, so last year, he set up a furniture fund. Now, it was the end of the year and they had the necessary funding to buy a new set of furniture.

迈克尔想给客厅配家具。他有一个收入颇丰的工作。所以,去年,他设立了一项基金用于买家具。现在是年底了,他们有了足够的经费买一套新家具。

However, Michael and his wife had different opinions about furniture. Michael liked functional coverings and he loved the color of fungi. His wife liked both fury and fuzzy furniture coverings. She liked metal furniture legs that looked like wires fused together. Michael didn’t like the fusion effect. He preferred wooden legs. They had such different ides that discussing their difference would have been a futile effort.

然而,迈克尔和妻子对家具的意见不同。迈克尔喜欢实用的家具。他的基本要求是舒适。他喜欢光滑的家具套子,喜爱真菌的颜色。他的妻子喜欢皮毛和绒毛家具套子。她喜欢看似电线熔合而成的金属的家具腿。迈克尔喜欢这种熔合的效果。他更喜欢木制的腿。他们的意见分歧太大,以至于讨论他们的不同意见将是徒劳的。

Today, Michael was at the furniture store. He didn’t bring his wife because he wanted to buy the furniture he liked. Bringing her would have just furthered their disagreement. He hoped to surprise her with the new furniture by having it delivered the following day. He was hoping that she would be pleasantly surprised and not furious at him.

今天,迈克尔来到家具店里。他没有带妻子来,因为他想买自己喜欢的家具。带她来只会加深分歧。他让人第二天把家具送到家里来,希望给她一个意外。他希望她会感到惊喜,而不会对他发怒。

When Michael arrived home, he was surprised to find his wife at the door. She made number of furtive movements that made Michael suspicious. She gabbled about having purchased something, then made him close his eyes and walk into the living room. “I hope you won’t gainsay the fact that I have a 50% right to furnish the house,” she said. “Now I have a surprise. Try to hold your fury, okay?”

迈克尔回到家的时候,发现妻子在门口,觉得很意外。她做了一些鬼鬼祟祟的动作让迈克尔起了疑心。她急促地说买了一样东西,然后,让他闭上眼睛走到客厅。“我希望你不否认我有50%的权利给房子配家具,”她说。“现在,我要给你一个意外。尽量不要发火,好吗?”

“I have a surprise for you too,” Michael said. He thought for certain that she had bought her furry furniture. To his surprise, the furnishings she bought were exactly as he had wanted it. “Oops,” he murmured. “I should have bought her the furry furniture.”

“我也有个意外给你,”迈克尔说。他想她肯定给自己买了皮毛家具。出乎他的意料之外,她买的家具摆设正是他想要的。“哎呀,”迈克尔嘟囔道。“我应该给他买好一套皮毛家具的。”
