這是美國CBS 60 Minutes (六十分鐘 )主持人Andy Rooney 對40歲以上的女人的看法:
As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all.
Here are just a few reasons why:
A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask,
“What are you thinking?”
She doesn’t care what you think.
If a woman over 40 doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it.
She does something she wants to do, and it’s usually more interesting.
Women over 40 are dignified.
They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant.
Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.
Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.
熟女不吝於讚美 (不管是不是實至名歸), 因為她們親身體驗過被忽略的滋味
Women get psychic as they age.
You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
Older women are forthright and honest.
They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.
如果你是蠢蛋 她們會馬上叫你滾蛋 你完全不需要傷腦筋揣摩她的心意
Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons.
Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal.
For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 20-year old waitress.
相對於每一個性感、迷人的40歲以上的女人 就有一個禿頭凸肚的熟男 厚臉皮地跟小他20歲的美眉調情
Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say,
“Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?”, here’s an update for you.
Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage.
Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig
just to get a little sausage!
