国外幽默故事(笑话)集锦(340

(英汉对照)

Laughter, the Best Medicine.

“笑是良药。”

 

Good-By, Old Friend

Skipper, a golden retriever, spent all of his useful years as a guide dog and close companion to David Crohan and as a loving friend to David’s wife, Kate, and their sons, Stephen and Thomas. He was 13 years old and had been David’s dog for 12 years. In that time he and David had not been apart more than twice, and for no longer than 24 hours. Skipper had been slowing down, however, seeming to know that his allotted time hag almost run out.

When he collapsed, the veterinarian was called and said she would come. Skipper went into a coma, lying peacefully on the edge of his dying. The children, with three friends, made a garland of flowers, which Stephen, as the oldest, was privileged to place on Skipper’s head.

Kate had been baking blueberry muffins, and now they were done. She had promised some to the children. Since the routine of life is often an anchor, she gave each child a wonderfully fragrant blueberry muffin. Skipper, who had been in the coma for 15 minutes, opened his eyes. Stephen went to him and offered him his muffin. Skipper ate it with pleasure. And in the way of children, each child offered him his muffin and he ate them all——to the last crumb. He slipped into a coma again, as if he were drifting into a natural sleep. In 15 minutes he roused again, lifted his head, looked around as though to fix the image of all he loved best in his mind for the journey ahead.

The veterinarian came and helped him on his way. And soon the earth received him in his resting place. And the children will remember all their lives that loving day.

——Dorothy West in Edgartown, Mast, Vineyard Gazette

340.再见,老朋友!

斯基颇是一只金毛猎犬,它耗费了毕生精力作为导游犬和大卫.克洛韩的贴身伴侣,也是大卫的妻子凯特和他们的两个儿子斯蒂芬和托马斯否认亲密朋友。它13岁了,在大卫家已经12年了。在这段时间里,它与大卫不在一起的时间不超过两次,总共不超过24 小时。斯基颇的精力在一天天衰弱,然而它似乎已经知道留给它的时间已经不多了。

当它突然倒下来时,兽医就接到了电话,说她会来的。斯基颇陷入昏迷状态,静静地躺着,濒临死亡的边缘。孩子们带来了三个朋友,做了花圈,最大的孩子斯蒂芬把花圈放在斯基颇的头旁边。

凯特烤了蓝莓松饼,现在松饼已经做好了。她答应给孩子们一些。因为生活的规律常常很稳定,所以她给每个孩子一个芳香的蓝莓松饼。斯基颇昏迷了15 分钟,睁开了眼。斯蒂芬走到它跟前,把自己的松饼给它吃,斯基颇高兴的吃了。以孩子们的方式,每个孩子也都把自己的松饼给它吃,它全都吃了——连最后的碎屑。它再一次陷入昏迷,好像是飘入自然的睡眠。15分钟内它又醒了过来,抬起头,看看周围,好像要在它启程旅行前,把所有它所热爱的最好的景象都固定在心里。

兽医来了,以其应有的方式救助它。不久大地就把它接收到它的安息之地。孩子们会永远记着这个爱日。

——桃乐茜. 韦斯特(埃德加城,电视塔)《葡萄园公报》
