Lesson 108 Delusions of Grandeur 幻想变得伟大

“I looked in the glossary,” said Ruth. “A gourmand is someone who is fond of good eating. I like good food, does that make me a gourmand?”

“我查了词汇表,”露丝说。“嗜食者是喜欢好吃的东西的人。我喜欢好吃的东西,这是不是说我是嗜食者呢?”

“I think a gourmand is someone who eats an excessive amount of food,” replied Lydia. “The meeting doesn’t fit a gorgeous girl like you. But I might change my opinion if you don’t stop gnawing at that bone.”

“我以为嗜食者是吃很多东西的人,”利迪娅答道。“它的意思不适合像你这样漂亮的女孩。但是,如果你不停地啃那块骨头,我可能会改变看法的。”

“It’s fit for a gourmet,” said Ruth. “Anyway, let me tell you more about my book.”

“它适合一个美食家,”露丝说。“无论如何,让我再给你讲讲我的书。”

“I can see it has a nice glossy cover,” Lydia said. Lydia was not interested in reading fiction. She preferred firsthand experiences.

“我看到它有一个光滑的好封面,”利迪娅说。利迪娅不喜欢看小说。她更喜欢亲身的经历。

“It received a glowing review,” Ruth said. “I had no grab one at the store before they sold out. The main character grew up in a rich family. Her studies included the gospel. She possessed the grace of a ballet dancer. Nobody was as gracious as she was. Her family owned a grand house on a giant ranch. She could have led a glorious life. However, her real goal was to help people suffering from the gloom of inadequate medical care. So, she became a surgeon. She traveled to undeveloped countries and worked for free. She was so talented. She even knew how to graft skin onto a burn victim. Because she became so famous, she was often the subject of gossip in her hometown. Everyone glorified her.”

“对它的评论很热烈,”露丝说。“我得在他们卖完之前,在书店里抓一本。主角生长在一个富裕的家庭。她的父亲管理着小镇。在学校,她每门课都能获得高分。她学的课程包括福音。她有着芭蕾舞演员的优雅风度。没有人像她那样彬彬有礼。她家在一个大农场上有一所壮观的宅第。她本来可以度过辉煌的一生。然而,她真正的目标是帮助那些担忧得不到充分医疗服务的人。所以,她成了外科医生。她到不发达的国家义务工作。她很有才华,甚至知道如何给烧伤的病人植皮。因为她太有名了,经常成为小道传闻的话题。每个人都赞扬她。”

“That’s a nice story, but it isn’t real,” Lydia giggled. She was amused.

“这是一个不错的故事,但不是真的,”利迪娅咯咯地笑道。她觉得好笑。

“I’m going to be just like her,” replied Ruth with a serious face. “I refuse to continue suffering from an ordinary life.”

“我要像她一样,”露丝严肃地说。“我拒绝继续忍受过普通生活的痛苦。”

Lydia laughed and shook her head. “You’re not suffering from anything but delusions of grandeur.”

利迪娅大笑,摇摇头。“除了夸大妄想外,你没有忍受任何痛苦。”
