轻松一刻——为时已晚:尽管我未见过祖父,不过我知道他身高只有五英尺五英寸,而我高贵典雅的祖母身高却有五英尺十一英寸。我十几岁的时候,和祖母一起翻看着老照片,我觉得他们在一起看起来很别扭。

It Was Too Late

Although I had never met him, I knew that my grandfather had been five feet and five inches tall, while my stately grandmother stood five feet and eleven inches. As a teenager leafing through old photographs with grandma, I finally realized how unusual they must have looked together.

Grandma,I asked,how could you have fallen in love with a man six inches shorter than you?”

She turned to me.“Honey,” she said,“we fell in love sitting down, and when I stood up, it was late.”

“奶奶,”我问道,“你怎么会爱上一个比你矮六英寸的人呢?”

她转向我说道:“宝贝,我们相爱的时候是坐着的,而当我站起来的时候,已经晚了。”
