A Brown Coat
Mr Smith has a nice, brown coat. He loves it a lot. But his wife doesn’t like it because it’s old. She often says, “Give it to poor man.” But Mr Smith says, “No, I like this coat.”
But one day, a cigarette falls on it and makes a hole in it. So Mrs Smith says, “Please don’t wear it again.” Mr Smith takes it to a tailor’s shop and says to the tailor, “Please make another coat like this one.” The tailor does what he is told him and makes a new coat. Then the tailor makes a hole in it again with his cigarette in the same place.
但是一天，一只香烟把这件衣服烧了一个洞。于是史密斯太太说：“请不要再穿它了。 ”史密斯先生把它拿到了一个裁缝店对裁缝说：“请给我做一件与这件一模一样的外套。 ”裁缝按照他说的做了一件新外套。然后裁缝又用香烟在同一个地方烧了一个洞。
