鲍伯汽车房屋出租场
保罗:我们要看你这里最大的汽车房屋。
鲍伯:就在这儿。这辆车是这场子最顶级的。
保罗:哇,好长。
鲍伯:三十二呎长,十呎高。
保罗:这种车很难开吗?
鲍伯:你可以在后面的停车场练习。
保罗:我们看看里面。
鲍伯:(上车)这是白天的陈设。
保罗:里面看起来就像一个房子。
鲍伯:这儿的空间足够让六个人睡得舒舒服服。


重点解说:

★ motor home 汽车房屋,配有家具、厨具、卫浴的汽车
★ rental (a.) 出租的
★ lot (n.) 场地,用地,parking lot则是‘停车场’
★ granddaddy (n.) 爷爷,祖父。这边是用来形容‘最顶级,最豪华’
★ feet (n.) 呎,英尺
★ layout (n.) 设计,布置。汽车房屋通常会针对不同需求而有不同装置,这里的daytime layout是指针对白天活动需求的设计装置;到了晚上,汽车房屋可以将某些部位收起或拉出,调整汽车内部的空间,这种夜间陈设叫nighttime layout
★ room (n.) 地方,空间
★ comfortably (adv.) 舒服地

All you remember about your child being twelve is sitting in the stands during baseball practice and hoping your child's team would strike out fast because you had more important things to do at home. The coach didn't understand how busy you were. You wished the baseball season would be over soon.

孩子12岁时,你所记得的,是孩子在体育场打棒球练习赛时,你坐在看台上希望你孩子所在的队很快三击不中出局,因为家里还有更重要的事等你去做。教练不明白你为什么那么忙。你多希望棒球赛季能尽快结束。
