To buy an hour from father-Samuel向爸爸买一个小时A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting him at the door.一个人工作到很晚,带着疲惫与愤怒回到家里,却发现5岁大的儿子正在门口等他“Daddy, may I ask you a question?”“爸爸,我可以问你一个问题吗?”“Yeah sure, what is it?” replied the man.“当然,什么问题?”“Daddy, how much do you make an hour?”“爸爸,你一个小时赚多少钱?”“That none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?” the man said angrily.“这不关你的事怎么问这样一个问题?”父亲生气地说道“I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?” pleaded the little boy.“我只是想知道请告诉我吧,你一个小时赚多少钱?”小男孩乞求地说“If you must know, I make $ an hour.”“真想知道就告诉你吧,我一小时赚美元”“Oh,” the little boy replied, with his head down. Looking up, he said, “Daddy, may I please borrow $?”“噢,”男孩说着,低下了头接着,他抬起头来问:“爸爸,我可以借你美元钱吗?”The father was furious, “If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard every day such childish behavior.”父亲生气了:“如果你问这个问题,只是为了借钱买无聊的玩具或其他没用的东西,那就赶紧回你的房间睡觉去想想你怎么会这么自私我每天工作这么辛苦,得到的竟是这样幼稚愚蠢的举动”The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money? After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $ and he really didnt ask money very often.小男孩静静地走进自己的房间,关上了门这个人坐下后,更加为这个男孩的问题生气了这孩子怎么敢问这样的问题,就为了借些钱呢?大约过了一个小时,他才平静下来了,开始想:也许他真的需要这美元买什么东西呢,他并不是经常要钱花The man went to the door of the little boy room and opened the door.于是这个人走到小男孩的门口,打开了门“Are you asleep, son?” He asked.“你睡了吗,孩子?”他问“No daddy, Im awake,” replied the boy.“没有呢,爸爸我醒着,”男孩回答“Ive been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier,” said the man, “It been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here the $you asked .”“我在想,可能刚才我对你太严厉了,”父亲说,“经过漫长的一天,我把怒气都发到你身上了这是你要的美元”The little boy sat straight up, smiling. “Oh, thank you daddy!” He yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man, seeing that the boy aly had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at his father.小男孩坐直了身子,笑了:“噢,谢谢爸爸!”他忍不住呼喊起来接着,他伸手到枕头底下,拿出一把皱巴巴的钞票看到男孩已经有钱了,父亲又忍不住要发火小男孩慢慢地数着钱,然后抬头看着父亲“Why do you want more money if you aly have some?” the father grumbled.“既然你已经有钱了,为什么还要更多钱?”父亲粗鲁地抱怨说“Because I didnt have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied. “Daddy, I have $ now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.”“因为我的钱不够,不过现在够了,”小男孩回答,“爸爸,我现在有美元了,我可以买你一小时的时间吗?请你明天早点下班,我想和你一起吃晚饭” 3739

Misha: I’d like to buy a token the subway. Clerk: The subway doesn’t use tokens anymore. Misha: Oh? I didn’t know that. It’s been a few years since I visited New York. How do I pay the fare? Clerk: You can buy a ticket a single ride that expires two hours after it’s issued. If you’re going to be here all week, I’d suggest getting a 7-day card that gives you unlimited rides. Otherwise, I’d recommend getting a MetroCard. Misha: I’m only here two days. How much is each ride? Clerk: It’s $.00. If you buy a MetroCard worth more than $.00, you get a % discount. So with a $ card, you get six rides instead of five. The card allows you to transfer to buses, too. Misha: Okay. I’ll take a MetroCard worth $.00. How is the money deducted from my card? Clerk: The turnstile automatically deducts the fare each time you go through it. Here’s your card. Misha: Thanks, but I’m not sure which line to take to Queens. Clerk: Here’s a subway map. Follow the signs to the platm of the train you want. Misha: Okay, thanks. 87

It's hard to watch TV these days without seeing reality shows. Some nights, it's hard to find a scripted drama to watch. There are so many different kinds of reality shows, too. The most popular one in the U.S. has been the "American Idol" show. This is a singing competition where amateurs try to impress the judges and the audience calls in to vote off a contestant each week. The last person left standing gets a recording contract. I think many countries now have a reality show like this. This show starts its fourth season this year and I think it'll be more popular then ever. Another popular reality show is "Big Brother." In this show, a group of people live together in the same house about weeks. They're not allowed to leave and they can't have visitors. The people chosen to live in the house are usually very different. This way, there is sure to be a lot of conflict. Some people m alliances and other people try to go it alone. The contestants compete in games and each week, the other contestants vote off one person from the show. Why would anyone want to be on "Big Brother?" The answer is easy: money. The last person remaining gets a huge prize-in the U.S. show, a half a million dollars. Even I'd live in a house full of strangers that kind of cash .Script by Dr. Lucy Tse 0195581
