We sat at the kitchen table, surrounded by wicker chairs.

我们坐在餐桌旁,周围是柳条制的椅子。

This time, without the need to make up sixteen years of information, we slid quickly into the familiar waters of our old college dialogue, Morrie asking questions, listening to my replies, stopping like a chef to sprinkle in something I'd forgotten or hadn't realized.

这次,我们不需要弥补16年的信息,我们迅速进入了我们彼此熟悉的过去大学时的谈话,Morrie提出问题,倾听我的回答,像个大厨一样停下来,撒上一些我已经遗忘了或者还没意识到的东西。

He asked about the newspaper strike, and true to form, he couldn't understand why both sides didn't simply communicate with each other and solve their problems.

他询问了报业罢工的事情,并且实事求是地说,他不能理解为什么两边不能通过简单地相互沟通来解决他们的问题。

I told him not everyone was as smart as he was.

我告诉他并不是每个人都像他一样聪明。

Occasionally, he had to stop to use the bathroom, a process that took some time.

偶尔地,他必须停下来去上厕所,这项过程需要花费他一些时间。

Connie would wheel him to the toilet, then lift him from the chair and support him as he urinated into the beaker.

Connie把他推到了卫生间,然后把他从轮椅上扶起来,帮助他小便。

Each time he came back, he looked tired.

每次他回来的时候,他都看上去很累。

"Do you remember when I told Ted Koppel that pretty soon someone was gonna have to wipe my ass?" he said.

“你还记得我对Ted Koppel说的很快就会有人来给我擦屁股了吗?”他说。

I laughed.

我笑了。

You don't forget a moment like that.

你不会忘记那样的时刻的。

 "Well, I think that day is coming. That one bothers me."

“好吧,我相信那一天快要来了。它令我很困扰。”

Why?

为什么?
