对话原文
I was on a date from hell.
我进行了一次特别不愉快的约会。

I agreed to go out with this guy who lives in the same apartment building as I do, but he’s turned out to be a real creep. He was nice enough at the start of the date, but then he started drinking. Now he’s drunk and I’m miserable.
我同意和我住在同一个公寓楼的那个男孩一起约会,但是想不到他竟然是个卑鄙小人。在约会开始时,他还挺好,然后他开始喝酒,现在他喝醉了,我很痛苦。

I wanted to let him down gently since I’d be seeing him around the apartment building, but I didn’t want to spend another minute with him.
我想不让他十分失望,因为我会在公寓楼见到他,但是我不想再和他呆一分钟。

Fatima: Listen, Rob, I just don’t think we’re hitting it off. You’re a really nice guy, but I just don’t think we have much chemistry.
Rob,听着,我认为我们不合适。你是个不错的男孩,但是我想我们之间不"来电"。

Rob: Are you kidding? I’m having the time of my life. We’re just getting started here. Bartender, another round!
你在开玩笑嘛?我现在非常快乐。我们刚刚开始喝酒,Bartender,再喝一轮。

I realized that I needed to be more straightforward with him in case I was giving him mixed signals.
我意识到我们得对他更直接些,以防给他不明确的信息。

Fatima: I’m sorry, Rob, but I think this is the end of the road for this date. Thanks a lot for the drinks and I’ll see you around.
我很抱歉,Rob,但是我想约会到此结束吧,谢谢你买酒招待我,再见。

Rob: What? You’re leaving? How about a goodnight kiss? Come over here and give me that kiss.
什么?你要走了?来个告别时的亲吻吧?过来亲我下。

I wanted to keep my cool, but when he tried to kiss me, that did it!
我想保持冷静,但当他想亲我是,那不起作用了。

Fatima: You’re stinking drunk and this date is over. Capisce?
你已经烂醉如泥了,约会结束了,明白吗?

I got up and left. What is it about alcohol that turns Prince Charming into a frog?
我起身离开了,酒精有什么魔力能将白马王子变成青蛙?
