The House Guest

家里的客人

Jim is telling Cecily about his house guest.

吉姆和西西莉说起他家里的客人。

Cecily: Hey, Jim. What's going on? You look like a basket case!

西西莉:嘿,吉姆。你怎么啦?看起来一点精神也没有!

Jim:You can say that again. Susan's brother dropped in from out of town,so I offered to put him up for a few days. He's drivmg me up a wall. For one thing, he's eating me out of house and home. He stays up till alt hours of the night watching the tube, then raids the fridge before he turns in. The guy's a bottomless pit. You should see the way he puts it away. He even belches after he eats.

吉姆:是啊,苏珊的弟弟事先没有打招呼就进城来了。我让他在我家里住了几天,真是没有把我给气死。他在我就离白吃不算,晚上熬着夜,坐在那里看电视,睡觉前还把冰箱里的东西吃个精光。这家伙的胃口大的像个无底洞,你是没看到他那贪吃的样子,吃饱了就大声打嗝。

Cecily: How gross. I can't handle people like that. Does he at least give you a hand around the house?

西西莉:真没教养。这种人我可受不了,他至少帮忙做点家务吧?

Jim:He doesn't lift a finger! I bend over backwards cleaning up all day and he sleeps in until noon. Oh, and check this out... then he gets on the horn with his friends and invites them over.

吉姆:他连个手指都懒得动,我整天累死累活的打扫房间,他却一直睡到中午,唉,你听听看一起床后还打电话给朋友,邀请他们过来玩。

Cecily: Man, what a freeloader. You better do something quick or he'll never hit the road. After all, he's got it made in the shade here.

西西莉:人哪,他真是把客人当成了福气,你得快点采取行动,要不然,他是不会走的,他一直在这儿实在太舒服了。

Jim:You think he Etiight stay even longer?

吉姆:你觉得他还会在我家里住下去?
 

Cecily: Now, don't go falling apart. If you're that fed up, just kick hitn out... but do it with kid gloves. I know!Tell him a white lie like you're getting the house fumigated!

西西莉:嗨,别太激动,你要是受不了。就撵他走…不过要委婉点,对了!就跟他撒个谎,说你要给房子消消毒!

Jim:That wouldn't be a lie!

吉姆:那可不是撒谎!
