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.
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.
她 才不在乎你 在想什麼。
If a woman over 40 d! oesn'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 seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera
or in the middle of an expensive restaurant.
Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to 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 forthrig! ht! and honest.
They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one.
如果你是蠢蛋 她們會馬上叫你滾蛋 !
You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons.
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,
'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.
Because women realize it's not worth just to get a little sausage!
buying an entire pig……….
