Saturday, 9:35 p.m.
I arrive in the emergency room. I had been at a party earlier in the evening when I accidentally cut my finger. My finger wasn't severed, but it did have a very deep cut and I thought I might need stitches. I check in at the admissions desk and I'm told to take a seat and wait.
我来到一间急救室 。今晚早些时候在一个派对上，我不小心切伤了手指 。虽然手指伤势不严重，但也留下了很深的切口，我想我得缝几针 。我去挂号处挂号，医院方面让我找位子坐下来等待 。
Saturday, 10:40 p.m.
I'm still waiting to see a doctor. The waiting room is filled to capacity and I expect it to be a long night.
我依然在排队等着看医生 。等候室里挤满了病人，我估计今夜会很漫长 。
Saturday, 11:15 p.m.
Several ambulances pull up to the door and EMTs wheel in several people on stretchers. I hear that there had been a pileup on Freeway 215 and these were the victims. I can see a doctor performing triage and the most critical cases are taken into exam rooms and maybe directly into surgery.
不少救护车门被拉开，急救人员用担架推出一些伤员 。我听说215高速公路发生了连环车祸，这些伤员就是车祸受害者 。我看见一名医生正在斟酌病情，那些受伤严重的被立马送到检查室，可能是要直接动手术 。
Sunday, 1:25 p.m.
I decide to give up and go home. If I hadn't bled to death by that time, I could probably wait until Monday to see my regular physician.
我决定放弃，准备回家 。如果那时我还没因失血过多死掉，我可能就会等到星期一，直到看完医生 。
My evening in the emergency room wasn't a total loss, though. I learned a valuable lesson: Never voluntarily go to the emergency room!
