Sonia:What in the world is that?!
Nadir:It's a life-size figure of George Washington. It's for Leon's school project.
那迪尔:一个乔治·华盛顿真人大小的人物 。莱昂的学校项目会用到它 。
Sonia:Then why are you making it?
Nadir:I'm not. I'm just helping him.
那迪尔:不是我 。我只是帮些忙 。
Sonia:Uh-huh. Why does George Washington have really big hands and flat palms?
Nadir:He cut down the family's cherry tree.
Remember? He probably needed big hands to do that.
Sonia:And why does he have little tiny feet with six toes on each foot and no ankles?
Nadir:I made a little mistake with those, but they'll be covered up with shoes, so no one will see them.
Sonia:And why is George's head shaped like an egg?
His ears are lopsided and his earlobes are disproportionate to his other facial features.
Nadir:That's why I made the forehead and chin bigger, so no one will notice those ears.
We'll probably put a hat on him anyway.
Sonia:But his legs look really thin on top and thick on the bottom, with kneecaps that stick out.
Nadir:I'll put pants on him, so no one will see those either.
Sonia:So it won't matter if he's not anatomically correct, right?
Sonia:Good thing this isn't for science class!
