Thanksgiving 感恩节

Mr. Hunter calls his son in Boston. The old man says,“Son, I hate to bring you the bad news…… but your mother and I, we are getting a divorce.”The son is surprised, “What?? You can’t!”
亨特先生给在波士顿的儿子打电话。老人说:“儿子,我不想带给你坏消息……但是我和你妈要离婚了。”儿子非常吃惊,“什么??你们不能!”

Mr. Hunter says, “I’m sorry, son! Forty-five years of misery is enough! Now, I am sick of talking about it, call your sister and tell her!” And he hangs up.
亨特先生说,“对不起,儿子!45年的痛苦已经够了!我讨厌说这些了,给你姐打电话告诉她!”就挂了电话。

The son, nearly in tears, calls his sister in New York, “Sis,” he says, “You’re not going to believe this! Mom and dad are getting a…… a…… divorce!”
儿子几乎是哭着给在纽约的姐姐打电话,“姐,”他说:“你不会相信的!妈和爸要…要…离婚!”

“What?!” she shouts on the phone. “Oh, no. They aren’t!You stay put. I’ll call you right back!” And she hangs up.
“什么?!”她在电话里喊起来。“噢,不。他们不能!你不要走开。我马上给你打过去!”她挂了电话。

The sister calls the parents in Los Angels, “You two are not getting a divorce!”
姐姐给洛杉矶的父母打电话:“你们俩不能离婚!“

Mr. Hunter says, “Honey, listen……”
亨特先生说:“亲爱的,听着……”

The daughter says, “No, you listen! You are not getting a divorce! You know what? You don’t do anything! I’m calling brother back. We’ll be there tomorrow! Don’t do anything.”
And she hangs up.
女儿说:“不,你听着!你们不准离婚!你知道吗?什么都不要做!我给弟弟打电话,我们明天就回去!任何事都不要做。”然后挂了电话。

Mr. Hunter hangs up calmly, looks at Mrs. Hunter, and says, “Well, they are coming for Thanksgiving and are paying their own fares. What shall we tell them on Christmas?”
亨特先生平静地放下听筒,看着亨特太太说:“好了,感恩节他们都要自己买机票回来了。圣诞节我们给他们说什么?”
