新概念英语青少版2a课文Unit 15 Lesson 29： It's a mystery to me 这对我来说真是个迷
DAISY: Welcome home, Jack! Did you have a good trip?
JACK: It was OK. But it was all about babies and food!
DAISY: Babies? How many babies?
JACK: Two. Marcel's deputy had a baby two months age. And Pierres's secretary is going to have a baby in June. They have nine months off work each time!
DAISY: Well, it happens. That's life.
JACK: True. And then there's the food. I had lunch with Marcel. I didn't want a three-hour lunch, but lunch is a serious business in Paris.
DAISY: Yes, it is. I like the French attitude to food. It's very civilised.
JACK: I agree you, Daisy. They're nice people. They're also very efficient. But how do they do it? How do they have time for a civilised life and for work as well? It's a mystery to me!
