一到周一就要忙起来。。所以今天疯狂发了。。咳咳这篇我自己觉得蹩脚的地方都有不少。。多指教



You’re a CEO, baby! 宝宝,你就是CEO


I was having some crispy duck and cold sesame noodles the other night when my eye fell on the adjacent table, where a couple was attending to one of those cute babies that appear on cue to harsh my mellow in airplanes, restaurants, and movie theaters. This baby was doing all the things that babies do, very sweetly, its bitsy clothing in apple-pie order down to micro-mini work boots. Its parents attended it much as the baby Jesus must have been celebrated by the three wise men from the East.

那天晚上,我正一边吃着那点脆皮烤鸭和芝麻冷面,一边看着邻桌的夫妇照顾他们“可爱”的宝宝,就是那种在飞机上、餐厅里还有电影院里常见的“可爱”宝宝,总能把你的好兴致一扫而光。这位宝宝也不例外,身上的小衣服被打理得整整齐齐,脚上穿的长筒靴被擦得锃亮。他的父母对他就像是来自东方的三智者给予刚出生的小耶稣祝福一般虔诚。


As I watched the baby do its baby thing, I got one of those electric shocks of recognition that accompany great epiphanies. This baby, fresh, incoherent, and flush with protean narcissism, was exactly like a CEO.

就在我看着宝宝做着婴孩幼稚的举动时,突然像被电击中一般恍然大悟。这个还不知人事、牙牙学语、脸上还不时泛着自我陶醉红潮的小宝宝,活像是一个CEO。

 

The baby is the center of its universe. All eyes are on Baby as it babbles and burbles and produces bubbles from various orifices. When the baby turns to the left, there’s Mommy, cooing and smiling and sucking up! When the baby turns to the right, there’s Daddy, mussing up its tiny head! This attention convinces the baby that it is the sun around which the cosmos revolves—a feeling shared by all chief executives, particularly those successful enough to be called moguls.

在宝宝的世界里,他就是宇宙的中心。不论是在咿咿呀呀,还是乱吐泡泡,宝宝都被人关注着。他转向这边,有妈妈笑着轻声细语地讨好他;转向那边,又有爸爸揉揉他的头。宝宝所受到的注目让他确信自己就是让整个宇宙围着转的小太阳——这正是所有主管的心理写照,尤其是那些足够成功的大人物。
