                            The right way to eat an ice-cream-cone

                                        吃蛋筒冰淇淋的正确方法

  Grasp the cone with the right hand firmly but gently between thumb and at least one but not more than three fingers, two-thirds of the way upon the cone. Then dart swiftly away to an open area, away from the jostling crowd at the stand. Now take up the classic ice-cream-cone-eating stance: feet from one to one feet apart, body bent forward from the waist at a twenty-five-degree angle, right elbow well up, right forearm horizontal, at a level with your collarbone and about twelve inches from it.

用右手紧紧地抓住蛋筒,但要用大拇指和至少一个但不超过三个其他指头轻轻的握住蛋筒2/3的位置。接着迅速飞奔到一个宽敞的地方从而远离冷饮摊上拥挤的人群。现在摆出吃蛋筒冰淇淋的古典姿势:双脚分开,上半身向前弯曲25度角,右手肘抬起,右前臂在你的锁骨大约12英尺的位置保持水平。

 But don't start eating yet! Check first to see what emergency repairs may be necessary. Sometimes a sugar cone will be so crushed or broken or cracked that all one cm do is gulp at the thing like a savage, getting what he can of it and letting the rest drop to the ground, and then evacuating the area of catastrophe as quickly as possible.

然而现在还不能开始吃!先查看哪些需要必要的紧急修补。有时候一个甜筒冰淇淋被压裂,断裂,破碎了,以至于你要像个野人一样狼吞虎咽地吃掉多少算多少,其余的只能让它掉落在地了,接着尽可能快地撤离灾难地。

Checking the cone for possible trouble can be done in a second or two, if one knows where to look and does it systematically. A trouble spot some people overlook is the bottom tip of the cone. This may have been broken off. Or the flap of the cone material at the bottom, usually wrapped over itself in that funny spiral construction, may be folded in a way that is imperfect and leaves an opening. No need to say that through this opening-in a matter of perhaps thirty or, at most, ninety seconds-will begin to pour hundreds of thousands of sticky molecules of melted ice cream.

如果一个人知道该注意什么地方并能做系统的检查,那么检查蛋筒可能存在的麻烦只需一两秒钟解决。一些人忽略的故障点正是蛋筒底部。这里或许已破损,又或许蛋筒底部的材料包裹成可笑的螺旋结构,也许包裹技术欠佳而留下缺口。不用说,过了30s或至多90s,成千上百融化的冰淇淋的黏糊糊的分子将会从这个小洞流出。

You know in this case then you must instantly get the paper napkin in your left hand under and around the bottom of the cone to stem the forthcoming flow, or else be doomed to eat the cone far too rapidly. It is a grim moment. No one wants to eat a cone under that kind of pressure, but neither does anyone want to end up with the bottom of the cone stuck to a messy napkin.

你知道这种情况下你必须立马拿出你左手的纸巾,堵住蛋筒四周及底部流动的冰淇淋,否则你必须超级快的吃掉蛋筒。这是令人懊恼的,没有人想要在那样一种压迫下吃掉一个冰淇淋,但是也没有人想要吃剩下个恶心纸巾的蛋筒底。

There's one other alternative-one that takes both skilled and courage:Forgoing any cradling action, grasp the cone more firmly between thumb and forefinger and extend the other fingers so that they are out of the way of the dripping from the bottom, then increase the waist-bend angle from twenty-five to thirty-five degrees, and then eat the cone, allowing it to drip out of the bottom onto the ground in front of you!

Experienced and thoughtful cone-eaters enjoy facing up to this kind of sudden challenge.

这还有另一个选择,但需要技巧和勇气:放弃任何补救措施前,用拇指和食指更紧地握住蛋筒,张开其它的指头避免它们沾上底部掉落的冰淇淋,然后腰部弯曲的角度从25度到35度慢慢变化,接着开始冰淇淋,随它由蛋筒的底部掉落在你前方的地面上!有经验的,善于思考的蛋筒冰淇淋吃家很乐意面对这种意外的挑战。


麦当劳的抹茶双拼真的是我的最爱啊!!!好像小时候吃冰淇淋会经常吃到一半,地下会“逆流成河”,长大了嘴大了吧唧吧唧快速吃完多省事啊~~嘿嘿,放张图乐一下~~
