东西

“今天买一个东西30万!明天买一个东西10万!”
– 『妈妈语录』

<.THINGS.>

In the many years they have lived together
He bought a few big things
and many small things

She summed up his position this way:
You are the real spender in our family
buying one thing $300K today
another thing $100K tomorrow

And their son started quizzing him this way:
“Dad, what thing is very expensive that you want to buy and you don’t need it?”

That amused him
reminding him of the girl
who spent too much money on shoes instead of traveling

<.东西.>

在他们共同生活的许多年里
他买了几样大件
和许多样小件

他的妻子这般总结他:
你是我们家真正的消费大王
今天买一样东西30万
明天买一样东西10万

他的儿子这般考他:
爸,有啥东西很贵你想买
但你不需要的?”

这问题让他觉得好玩
让他想起
那位买了许多双鞋子
却从未旅行的女人
