会话 A

(在家里。)

刘明:(正在写信。)

李红:刘明,该吃饭了,写什么呢?

刘明:哎,我在给朋友写贺卡。

李红:是啊,快过年了,我也收到了不少电子贺卡。

刘明:我不喜欢电子贺卡。一秒钟,对方就收到了。

李红:还挺怀旧的。哎,刘明,给国外朋友写信,你的地址可写错位置了。

兰兰:妈妈,爸爸。

李红:兰兰,放学啦?

刘明:兰兰,你看爸爸的地址写错了吗?

兰兰:(看信封)爸爸,这算什么错,我们班有一男生,特糊涂。有一天,他发了封信,三天后,这封信又回到了他手里。您们猜,为什么?

李红:地址写错了呗。

兰兰:不对。

刘明:把收信人的名字写成他的了?

兰兰:不对。

李红:没贴邮票?

兰兰:(笑)贴了,但不是邮票。他贴了自己的照片(儿)。

Translation:

(At home.)

Liu Ming:(writing a letter.)

Li Hong: Liu Ming, it's time to eat, what are you writing?

Liu Ming: Oh, I'm writing greeting card to friends.

Li Hong: Yes, it's nearly New Year's, I've also received many electronic greeting cards

Liu Ming: I don't like electronic greeting cards. One second, the other person's got it.

Li Hong: You're pretty nostalgic. Hey, Liu Ming, if you're writing to an overseas friend, you've written the address in the wrong place.

Lan Lan: Mom, dad.

Li Hong: Lan Lan, finished school?

Liu Ming: Lan Lan, can you see if dad's written the address wrongly?

Lan Lan: (looks at envelope) Dad, this is no big mistake, there's a boy in our class who is really scatterbrained. One day, he sent a letter, three days later, the letter came back to him. Have a guess, why?

Li Hong: He's written the wrong address.

Lan Lan: No.

Liu Ming: He wrote the receiver's name as his own?

Lan Lan: No.

Li Hong: Didn't stick on a stamp?

Lan Lan: (laughs) He did, but not a stamp. He stuck on his own photo.
