      A Plate of Peas 一盘豌豆

        

      "You ate them for money," she said. "You can eat them for love."

      “你可以为钱吃了它们,”她说,“你就可以为爱吃了它们。”

      Oh, despair! Oh, devastation! Now, too late, came the dawning realization that I had unwittingly damned myself to a hell from which there was no escape.

      哦,天哪!哦,太惨了!事到如今,我才顿悟:不知不觉中,我已将自己推进万劫不复的地狱,但一切为时已晚。

      "You ate them for money. You can eat them for love."

      “你可以为钱吃了它们,就可以为爱吃了它们。”

      What possible argument could I muster against that? There was none. Did I eat the peas? You bet I did. I ate them that day and every other time they were served thereafter. The five dollars were quickly spent. My grandmother passed away a few years later. But the legacy of the peas lived on, as it lives on to this day. If I so much as curl my lip when they are served (because, after all, I still hate the horrid little things), my mother repeats the dreaded words one more time: "You ate them for money," she says. "You can eat them for love."  

      我能有什么样的理由来反驳呢?没有!我无话可说。那后来我吃了没有呢?当然,我吃了。在那一晚,我吃了。之后每次上豌豆的时候,我都吃了。5美元很快就被花掉了,外婆也在几年后过世,而豌豆事件的影响却一直还在,直到如今。如果我看到豌豆就撅嘴的话(因为,无论如何,我仍然憎恶这些讨厌的小东西),母亲就会又一次重复那令我畏惧的话:“你可以为钱吃了它们,”她说,“就可以为爱吃了它们。”
