情景对话


Lucy: I’m so excited! My friend, Marlene, is coming to town for a visit.

Buddy: Have I met Marlene?

Lucy: No, I don’t think so. We grew up together and we were always joined at the hip.

Buddy: When I was little, I had a friend like that. We were blood brothers.

Lucy: Yeah, Marlene and I did everything together and she was my confidant about everything.

Buddy: She sounds like a great friend.

Lucy: Yeah, she always had my back and I could always count on her to give it to me straight.

Buddy: A friend like that is hard to come by. Are you still close?

Lucy: Not as close as I’d like. We live in different cities and it’s hard to keep up with what’s happening in each other’s lives.

Buddy: I can see that. Does she know you’re getting married?

Lucy: No, I wanted to break the news to her face-to-face.

Buddy: Why? I would have thought you’d want to tell her the good news right away.

Lucy: Well, I want her to be my maid of honor and I’m not sure how she’ll react to the dress she’ll have to wear.

Buddy: Is it that bad?

Lucy: My future mother-in-law picked it out and I can’t say “no.” Here’s a picture of it.

Buddy: Well, I’m glad she’s such a good friend, because if anything can break up a friendship, it’s that dress.

参考译文

Lucy: 我太兴奋了。我的好友Marlene要来镇里参观。

Buddy: 我见过Marlene吗?

Lucy: 没,我想你没见过。我们从小一起长大,关系十分亲密。

Lucy: Marlene和我什么事都一起做,什么事她都是我的知己。

Buddy: 听起来她是个很棒的朋友。

Lucy: 是的,她总是支持我,我可以经常依赖她对我有话直说。

Buddy: 那样的朋友很难得。你们关系还很铁?

Lucy: 不如我想的那样亲密。我们生活在不同的城市,彼此生活中正发生的事想要同步很难。

Buddy: 我知道。她知道你要结婚了吗?

Lucy: 没有。我想当面告诉她那个消息。

Buddy: 为什么?我本以为你会马上想告诉她那个消息。

Lucy: 我想让她当我的伴娘,我还不确定她会对必须穿的衣服有何反应。

Buddy: 有那么糟吗?

Lucy: 我未来的岳母大人选的衣服,我无法拒绝。这是服装的照片。

Buddy: 我很高兴她是你的挚友,如果有什么事能破坏你们之间的友谊,就是这件衣服了。
