    EAT PRAY LOVE 1

    美食、祈祷和恋爱 1

    

    I wish Giovanni would kiss me.

    我希望乔瓦尼会吻我。

    Oh, but there are so many reasons why this would be a terrible idea. 

    ,这想法为什么会如此糟糕的理由是那么多。

    To begin with, Giovanni is ten years younger than I am, and—like most Italian guys in their twenties—he still lives with his mother. 

    首先,乔瓦尼比我年轻10岁,以及像大部分20多岁的意大利人一样,他任然和他妈妈住在一起。

    These facts alone make him an unlikely romantic partner for me, given that I am a professional American woman in my mid-thirties, who has just come through a failed marriage and a devastating, interminable divorce, followed immediately by a passionate love affair that ended in sickening heartbreak

    这些事实使得他不太可能成为我的伴侣,并能将爱给予30岁中期正宗美国女人。我经历过一段失败的婚姻和深受伤害,无止境的离婚,紧跟一个充满激情的婚外恋并在一个令人作呕的心碎中结束

    This loss upon loss has left me feeling sad and brittle and about seven thousand years old. 

    这种损失在我感到有7000年历史的悲伤和脆弱之上。

    Purely as a matter of principle I wouldn't inflict my sorry, busted-up old self on the lovely, unsullied Giovanni. 

    纯粹是一个原则问题,我不会感到抱歉,脱俗的乔瓦尼捣毁我旧时的美丽。

    Not to mention that I have finally arrived at that age where a woman starts to question whether the wisest way to get over the loss of one beautiful brown-eyed young man is indeed to promptly invite another one into her bed.  

    更何况,我终于到达了那样的年龄,这时期的女人还是疑问,是否有一种最明智的方式让一个漂亮棕色眼睛的年轻男人及时确定邀请另一个进入她的床

    This is why, in fact, I have decided to spend this entire year in celibacy.

    这就是为什么,我决定整整一年独自生活。

    To which the savvy observer might inquire:"Then why did you come to Italy?"

    精明的人会问:“那么为什么你会来意大利?”

    To which I can only reply—especially when looking across the table at handsome Giovanni—"Excellent question."

    我只能回复——特别是看着隔着桌子的英俊的乔瓦尼——“非常好的问题。

    

    超过我的能力水平了,决定换一本翻译!
