Banana香蕉

Banana香蕉
 

This is a bruised, painfully yellow, decaying banana. When I found it, it was sitting shamefully at the top of a beautiful crystal bowl filled with a colorful array of fruits. The firm, spotless, just-bought bunch of bananas beneath it was making a mockery of its blemishes and imperfections. I probably would’ve left it to mould and opted for an orange or an apple instead had it not been for the overconfidence those flawless bananas exuded. Left on its own by its fellow “bunch-mates”, this banana stood out but was certainly a wrinkle in an otherwise perfect picture of beauty.

这是一个已经有斑的,蔫黄的,快要烂了的香蕉。我看到的时候,它害羞的坐在一堆五颜六色的水果顶上,一起被放在一个非常美丽的水晶果盘当中。它的底下放着一堆还有些硬的,皮上没有斑的,刚买来的一挂香蕉,似乎在嘲笑它的斑点和缺陷。我就让它自己发霉去,改为选一个苹果或者桔子来吃,也使得那些新鲜香蕉不那么过分自信。把它留在这堆香蕉旁边,他显然成为本来是一幅完美图画的一道显眼的皱纹。

I guess in a way I felt for that teased and taunted banana. I suddenly felt obligated to defend that banana. So I picked the lonely, outcast-banana over the gang of handsome bananas. I picked the speckled, hurting banana because I knew that those other bananas were swollen with pride and needed to be taught a lesson… and it was about time the ridiculed banana got some positive attention.

我猜这根香蕉一定受到了嘲笑和羞辱,我突然觉得自己有责任去保护它。于是我在这群英俊的香蕉中,独独拿起了这根孤独的被抛弃的香蕉。我之所以选它,是因为我觉得其他的香蕉过于自负,应该被好好教训一下,而且被嘲笑的香蕉也应该获得一些注意力。

When I reached out to rescue that banana from the fruit bowl, I hesitated at first. I wasn’t sure I wanted to touch the spongy film of what’s left of its skin – but after seeing the smug shades of yellow those other bananas had turned, I took a deep breath and went in for it.

当我要把那个香蕉从果盘中拯救出来的时候,一开始我犹豫了。我不确定自己是不是要真的去碰那些看上去有些腐烂的香蕉皮。但是看到其他香蕉样样得意的样子,我深呼吸了一口气,走上前。

I held my breath and peeled back a section of the ugly banana peel…

我摒住呼吸,剥开了看上去烂烂的那部分香蕉皮…

Banana香蕉

… I let go of that little puff of air I had reserved, eyebrows raised with surprise…

我松了口气,惊奇的抬了抬眉毛

Banana香蕉

Peeled(剥好了)

 

The flesh of the banana was plump and pure. No imperfections - not even a single strand of that chalky inner peel was left on the inside of the fruit.

香蕉肉饱满又干净,没有一点不完美,甚至皮里面的白色果膜也没有留在香蕉肉上。

This is when I realized I had made the right decision when I chose to save this banana. This was its moment of glory, it knew that it was better than those raw bananas still sitting in the bowl. It knew that the others would’ve been bland, dry and stiff – but it knew that it was going to be fragrant, juicy and tender. Yes – it was the banana’s moment of glory!!! To celebrate? Ate it.

这是我觉得选择这个香蕉是多么的明智啊。这是它的荣耀时刻,它知道自己比那些还在果盘里面还夹生的香蕉要棒的多!它知道那些香蕉可能还有些生涩,有点干硬-但是它自己是芳香多汁软软的。没错,这就是一个香蕉的光辉时刻。庆祝一下吧?咬一口!

Hahahaha~ THE END

哈哈哈哈,全文完
