這是美國CBS 60 Minutes (六十分鐘 )主持人 Andy Rooney對40 歲以上的女人的看法:
As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all.
隨著年齡增長, 我越來越珍惜40 歲以上的女人
Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask,
40歲以上的女人 不會 在半夜把你吵醒, 然後問你:
'What are you thinking?'
She doesn't care what you think.
If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game,
she doesn't sit around whining about it.
她 不會 坐在你旁邊 抱怨東抱怨西
She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.
Women over 40 are dignified.
They se! ld! om have a screa ming match with you at the opera
or in the middle of an expensive restaurant.
Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate! t! o shoot you
if they think they can get away with it.
Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved.
熟女不吝於讚美! (不管是不是實至名歸 )
They know what it's like to be unappreciated.
Women get psychic as they age.
You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two,
a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
Older women are forthright and honest.
They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one.
You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons.
Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal.
For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40,
there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants
making a fool of himself with some 20-year old waitress.
Ladies, I apologize.
For all those men who say,
幫妳們說句公道話 ! :
'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?',
那些說只想喝免費的牛奶 而不願買頭母牛 回家的男人
here's an update for you.
Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage.
今天有 80%的 女人寧願不結婚
Because women realize it's not worth just to get a little sausage!
因為她們終於! 發! 現不需要為了一根香腸
