Reading Practice

There was a very interesting story in this morning’s newspaper about a man who had just received an inheritance of a million dollars. The newspaper account was quite detailed. It said the man behaves very strangely. What others like, he dislikes, and what most people enjoy, he doesn’t care for. まさに百万ドルの相続を受けていた男の今朝の新聞で、非常に興味深い話がありました。新聞のアカウントは非常に詳述された。それは人間が非常に奇妙な振る舞いと述べた。他の人は彼が嫌い、好きなもの、とほとんどの人が楽しんで何を、彼はのために気にしません。

For example, most people enjoy summer weather when they can wear lightweight clothes. No one else would think of wearing a long coat and a hat on a hot day, but he does. He says he can’t stand the sun, but he’ll take long walks in the rain without a raincoat or an umbrella. 彼らは軽量の服を着ることができたときに、例えば、ほとんどの人は夏の天候を楽しむ。他に誰もロングコートと暑い日に帽子を身に着けていると思うんだろうが、彼はしません。彼は太陽を我慢できないと言うが、彼はレインコートや傘なしで雨の中で長い散歩を取るよ。

He’s extremely particular about selecting the correct tie to wear with his suit, but it doesn’t bother him if his shirt is dirty or his suit isn’t pressed. 彼はスーツを着用する正しいネクタイの選択について非常に特定のだが、彼のシャツが汚れているか、彼のスーツが押されていない場合、それは彼を気にしない。

He always sees the negative side of everything. He finds fault with the best movie of the year, but stays awake until two a.m. watching very old movies on television. 彼はいつも、すべての負の側面を見ている。彼はその年の最高の映画のあらを見つけたが、二人はテレビで非常に古い映画を観る時まで目を覚ましたままになります。

Even his taste in food is peculiar. He drinks warm water and cold tea, eats raw eggs and can’t stand fresh fruit. 食品でも、彼の味が独特である。彼は、暖かい水と冷たいお茶を飲む生卵を食べると新鮮なフルーツを我慢できない。

Last week his uncle died and left him the million dollars. Perhaps the uncle was rather odd, too. Or maybe he knew about his nephew’s strange preferences—one of them, anyway—and decided to try to cure him.  先週彼の叔父が死亡し、彼に百万ドルを残した。おそらく、叔父も、むしろ奇妙だった。それとも彼はそれらの彼の甥の奇妙な嗜好-1を知っていた、とにかく、彼を治すためにしようとすることを決めた。

In his will, the old man insisted that the nephew spend half the inheritance within the next five years. If he didn’t, the money would be given to a university. 彼の意志では、老人は甥、今後5年以内に半分の相続を費やしていることを主張した。彼がいなかった場合、お金が大学に与えられます。

Everyone is anxious to know what the nephew will do. You see, he likes to buy things, but he hates to spend money. 誰も甥が何をするか知りたがっている。あなたは、彼がものを購入するのが好き、見たが、彼はお金を費やすことを嫌っている。

Questions

1. What are some of the strange preferences of the man in the story?

2. What happened last week?

3. What did the uncle insist on in his will?

4. Why do you suppose the uncle wrote his will in this way?

5. Do you think the nephew will spend half the money in the next five years?

6. What would you buy if you had to spend half a million dollars in five years?

Conversation

WAITER: May I take your order now? DONALD: Yes, I think we’re’ ready to order. Elizabeth, what would you like to have? ELIZABETH: I haven’t made up my mind yet. You order first, Donald. DONALD: All right. I’ll start with chicken soup. Then I want a steak, medium rare. I’ll have a baked potato, green beans, and a tossed salad.I’ll order dessert later. WAITER: Yes, sir. And you, miss. What would you like to have? ELIZABETH: I can’t decide. I don’t see anything I really like. WAITER: There are over thirty dishes to select from, miss. DONALD: There ought to be something you like, Elizabeth. ELIZABETH: Well, I guess so. But I only see food that I don’t like. I don’t care for chicken and I can’t stand fish. Do you have any oysters? WAITER: No, miss. I’m afraid not. How about some other seafood? ELIZABETH: Oysters are the only seafood I like; I dislike the rest. DONALD: I wish I could think of something for you. WAITER: May I suggest cream of tomato soup, steak with mushroom gravy, asparagus, and buttered cauliflower. For dessert—strawberry pie with ice cream? ELIZABETH: No, that isn’t my idea of a good meal. I’ll have a hamburger. That’s my favorite dish. I have it every day.
