The Senator and the Worm

參議員和蟲

A rich senator lived in a big house. He had more money than anyone in his district. One day, he was sitting on a chair listening to a radio broadcast. As he listened to the news bulletin, a worm crawled from underneath the chair and onto his head.

一位富有的參議員住在一所大房子里,他是當地的首富。有一天,它坐在椅子上聽廣播。以此同時,一條蟲子從椅子底下爬到了他的頭上。

His cook was in the kitchen stirring some spaghetti sauce. Suddenly, a cry from the senator alerted him. He ran to the rear of the house where the senator was sitting.

他的廚師正在廚房里攪拌意大利面醬。突然,參議員的一聲喊叫使他警覺起來,他趕緊跑到參議員所在的后院。

The cook looked and saw the worm. He tried to console the senator. "I'll take it off right away," he said.

廚師看了看,發現了那條蟲子。他試圖安慰參議員。“我馬上把它弄下來,”他說。

No! shouted the senator. "I want you to kill it."

“不!”參議員喊道。“我要你弄死他。”

But it's only a worm, the cook said. "Why should we execute it? It hasn't committed a crime."

“但這只是一條蟲子而已,”廚師說。“我們為什么要處死它呢?它又沒有犯罪。”

The senator could not endure the worm on his head. "Hurry!" he shouted.

議員無法再忍受頭上的蟲子。“快點!”他喊道。

The cook looked through several drawers, but found nothing. Then he ran to the closet and took out a pipe. He returned to the senator and lifted the pipe over his head. He knew he couldn't just tap the worm. He was going to hit it hard. He grasped the pipe tightly.

廚師翻了幾個抽屜,但什么工具也沒找到。然后他跑到壁櫥里拿出一根煙斗。他回到參議員身邊,把煙斗舉過頭頂。他知道他不能只是將蟲子敲掉,而是要狠狠地將其打死。他緊緊抓住煙斗。

What are you waiting for? said the senator. "Kill it!"

“你還在等什么?”參議員說。“弄死它!”

The cook swung the pipe at the senator's head.

廚師把煙斗對準參議員的頭。

Oh, no, the worm said. "He's going to chop me in half." It jumped off the senator's head.

“哦,不,”蟲子說。“他要把我劈成兩半。”說罷它從參議員的頭上跳了下來。

There was a tremendous noise. "Owww!" cried the senator.

接著是一個巨大的響聲。“噢!”參議員叫道。

A bump rose upon his skull. Meanwhile, the worm crawled outside.

他的頭骨腫了起來。與此同時,蟲子爬到了外面。
