【今日基础词】 Sense

【Transcript】

A mole, a creature blind from birth, once said to his Mother, “I am sure that I can see, Mother!”

In the desire to prove to him his mistake, his mother placed before him a few grains of frankincense, and asked, “What is it?” 

The young Mole said, “It is a pebble.” His Mother exclaimed,“My son, I am afraid that you are not only blind, but that you have lost your sense of smell.”

【注】mole n. 鼹鼠;frankincense n. 乳香

Translation】

鼹鼠的眼睛一出生便是瞎的,可小鼹鼠却对妈妈说,“妈妈,我能看得见。”

他妈妈想证明他的错误,便拿来一小块香喷喷的食物,放在他面前,问道:“它是什么?”

小鼹鼠说,“小石头。”

母亲惊喊:“啊,不幸的孩子,你不但眼睛看不见,连嗅觉也没有了。”
