Quote of My Daughter(3)女儿语录(3)



Once when my daughter was 4 or 5 years old, I took her from Beijing to Sichuan to visit my parents by train. It was a 36 hour long trip; and was very tiring. I bought two tickets for the sleeping car. After we boarded, I climbed up to the upper level of the berth to put away our stuff on the luggage rack higher up. I asked my daughter who stayed on the floor, “Would you want to read this book? If you do, I’ll leave it for you; if you don’t, I will put it away.”
女兒四、五歲時,我帶她從北京從火車回四川老家探親。火車要坐36小時左右,很辛苦。我買了臥鋪票。上車時我爬到上鋪整理行李,並問留在下鋪的女兒:「這本書你看嗎?看我就給你留著,不看我就放起來了。」
And she said,”I don’t need it for the time being.”
結果她說:「我暫時不看。」
Upon hearing this, a fellow passenger in the car couldn’t help laughing and saying, “How interesting this child is! ‘I don’t need it for the time being’, then what shall your mom do with your book?”
聽到這裏,同車廂的一名乘客「撲哧」一聲就笑了出來:「這小孩說話怎麼這麼逗?『暫時不看』,這下讓媽媽怎麼辦呢?」
