The Common Interest

共同的兴趣

Emily Mason and George Peters have lived next door to each other as long as they can remember. When they were little children, they used to play together. They were good friends, though they sometimes fought over toys or quarreled about what game they would play. As they grew older, they played together less. Emily preferred to be with girls, and George preferred to play with boys. When they were about fifteen years old, they almost stopped speaking to each other, not because they had disagreed with each other about anything, but just because they belonged to different groups. For one thing, Emily was developing into a very good student, while George was more interested in sports. Emily had begun to study French, and she liked French so much that she began to write short plays in French. She also liked television programmes, and for some reasons, she enjoyed watching football games very much. Her mother used to say, “Emily, I've never heard of a girl who likes football as much as you do.” Mrs. Mason simply did not approve of her daughter’s interest; football, she felt, was for men and boys.

埃米莉梅森和乔治彼得斯自孩提时就一直做邻居。当他们还是孩子的时候,时常在一起玩耍。他们是好朋友,虽然有时候为玩具打架,或因为玩游戏吵嘴。随着他们渐渐长大,他们在一起玩耍的时间越来越少了。埃米莉喜欢和女孩子玩,乔治喜欢和男孩子玩。当他们大约十五岁的时候,互相之间几乎不说话了,不是因为他们在什么事情上意见分歧,只是因为他们属于不同的群体。首先,埃米莉成长为一名非常优秀的学生,而乔治则更多地对体育运动感兴趣。埃米莉开始学法语,她非常喜欢法语,已开始用法语写短剧。她也喜欢电视节目,而且,因为某种原因,她也非常喜欢看足球比赛。她妈妈常说埃米莉,我从来没听说过哪个女孩像你这么喜欢足球的。”梅森太太不赞成她女儿的兴趣, 她觉得足球该是男人和男孩子的爱好。

While Emily was working on her French lessons or watching football games on TV, George was working for his father in his store after school. He liked selling things to people. Mr. Peters found George was so helpful that he thought about offering him a higher pay. When George wasn’t working at the store, he would like to be with a group of his boy friends who were organizing a sports team.

当埃米莉做法语功课或在电视上看足球赛的时候,乔治放学后在他爸爸的商店里做帮手,他喜欢卖东西。彼特斯先生发现乔治帮了不少忙,考虑付给他更高的报酬。当乔治不在店里帮忙的时候,他喜欢和一群男孩子在一起,他们正在组建一个运动队。

In fact, it was football that brought Emily and George back together. When George was going home one afternoon, he looked in the window of Emily’s living room, and he saw that she was watching a football game on TV. He walked up and knocked at the door. Emily was surprised to see him, but she asked him to come in, and they watched the rest of the game together. At some time during the afternoon, George looked at Emily, and he noticed that she had become a very pretty young lady. Emily and George are good friends again. They still have different ideas about things sometimes, but they agree with each other that football is the world’s best game. Mrs. Mason doesn’t seem to disapprove of her daughter’s interest in football as much as she used to.

事实上,正是足球把埃米莉和乔治重新带回一起。当乔治有一天下午回家的时候,他朝埃米莉客厅的窗户里看了一眼,看到她在电视上看足球比赛。他走了过去,敲了敲门。埃米莉见到他很吃惊,但还是请他 进来,一起看完了足球比赛。下午有时候,乔治看着埃米莉,注意到她已 经出落成了非常漂亮的年轻姑娘。埃米莉和乔治再次成了好朋友。他 们在某些事情上意见还是有分歧。但是他们一致赞同足球是世界上最 好的运动。梅森太太也似乎不像先前那样不赞成她女儿对足球的兴趣了。
