Article #1 I Want to Dye my Hair Green

第1篇 我想把头发染成绿色

Many of my friends have dyed their hair different colors.

我的许多朋友都把头发染成了不同的颜色。

I don't mean normal hair colors like brown or black.

而是橙色、紫色和蓝色。

我告诉妈妈说想把头发染成绿色。

我向妈妈解释说我只会选用食品的颜色。

The green would not last forever.

我的头发不会永远都是绿色的。

My mother said that dyeing your hair was a silly fad.

我妈妈却说染发只是一种愚蠢的潮流。

She said that I would not look good with green hair.

她还说我染了绿色头发不会好看。

I said that if I couldn't dye my hair green, maybe I could get a nose ring.

我说如果不允许我染绿发,那我就戴鼻环。

My mother said "no." I said that maybe a tattoo on my arm would be nice.

妈妈不同意。我又说在胳膊上纹身也不错。

My mother said "no way." My mother said that she did some crazy things when she was a young girl.

妈妈的回答是“没门”。她说她在年轻的时候也做过一些疯狂的事。

She said that she used to iron her hair to make it straight.

That sounds quite boring to me.

这对我没什么吸引力。

妈妈说等我长大以后可以把头发染成任何我喜欢的疯狂的颜色,但现在她想让我保持头发的自然颜色。

I tried to tell her that all my friends were doing it.

我试图告诉她所有的朋友都在染发。

My mother asked, "if all your friends were jumping off a cliff, would you do it too?" I said "no." I think I'll have to wait to have green hair, but maybe by the time I'm old enough to dye my hair green, I won't want it that color.

妈妈问我说:“如果你所有的朋友都去跳崖,你也去吗?”我说“不”。我想短时间内我是不可能把头发染成绿色了,但当我到那个时候说不定就不想要绿色了。

My mother says that fads change all the time.

我妈妈说潮流总是在变。

One day something might be popular, and the next day it's not in style at all.
