A Perfect Gift

完美的礼物

There were three brothers, John, Jack, and James. Every year on their mother's birthday, they sent her expensive presents. They liked to show her how rich and successful they were.

有兄弟三人:约翰、杰克和詹姆斯。每年母亲节,他们都给母亲送贵重的礼物,以显示自己多富有,事业上多成功。

The oldest brother, John, had the most money and he wanted his mother to know this.

年龄最大的约翰最有钱,他也想让母亲知道这一点。

Mother's birthday was coming. “I must give her something none of my brothers can give her,” John thought. “I must find something of which there is only one in the whole world.”

母亲节就要到了。“我必须给她别的兄弟给不了的东西,”约翰在想,“我必须找一样世界上独一无二的东西。”

He advertised in the newspapers. “Wanted the perfect gift for the woman who has everything.”

他在报纸上打了广告。“求购-为拥有一切的女人准备的礼物。”

For many days his telephone did not stop ringing. People phoned him from all over the world. They wanted to sell him “the perfect gift”. However, they did not have anything that was the only one in the whole world.

一连好多天,他的电话不停地响。人们从世界各地给他打电话。他们想卖给他“完美的礼物”。然而,他们没有他想要的独一无二的东西。

Then, less than a week before his mother's birthday, a man came to his office. He was carrying a cage, and in the cage there was a large bird.

接着,离母亲节不到一个星期了,一个人来到他的办公室。他拎着一个鸟笼,笼子里有一只大鸟。

“This bird,” the man said, “can speak ten languages and sing many kinds of pop songs. There is no other bird like it in the world.”

“这只鸟,”那人说,“能说十种语言,唱许多流行歌曲。全世界除了它,没有这样的鸟。”

“I will listen to it.” John said. “If you are telling the truth, I will buy the bird from you.”

“我来听听,”约翰说,“如果你说的是真的,我就买下。”

The man spoke to the bird. “Talk to me in French,”he said. The bird spoke to him in French. “Tell me a joke in Japanese,” he said. The bird told him a joke in Japanese. “Sing a famous pop song,”he said. The bird sang a famous pop song.

那人对鸟说话了。“用法语跟我说话,”他说。鸟就跟他讲法语。“给我说个日本笑话,”他说。那只鸟就用日语给他讲笑话。“唱一首有名的流行歌曲,”他说。鸟就唱了一首有名的流行歌曲。

“I will buy it.” John said. "How much do you want?"

“我要买它。”约翰说,“要多少钱?”

“One hundred thousand dollars,” the man said. This was a lot of money but John paid him. Then he sent the bird to his mother with a birthday card.

“十万美元,”那人说。这可是一大笔钱,但是约翰付了钱。然后他把鸟送给了母亲,还附带了一张贺卡。

The day after his mother's birthday he phoned her. “ Well, mother,” he said, “what did you think of the bird?”

母亲节后的第二天,他给母亲打电话。“喂,妈妈,”他说’“你觉得那只鸟怎么样啊?”

“Oh, it was delicious, dear,” she said.

她说哦,味道好极了,亲爱的。”
