A Heartwarming Toy Store Encounter

  • A little girl and boy make different toy choices at a store, but their interaction brings joy and surprises.
  • The girl initially chooses a Barbie doll, but changes her mind and selects a Pokemon game.
  • The boy gives up on video games and chooses a sticker book instead. Both families end up in the same line at the cashier.
  • ベストアンサー


 The little girl had apparently chosen her Barbie, a beautifully dressed, glamorous doll that would have been the envy of every little girl on the block. However, she had stopped and was watching the interchange between the little boy and his father. Rather disappointed, the boy had given up on the video games and had chosen what looked like a book of stickers instead. He and his father then started walking through another aisle of the store.  The little girl put her Barbie back on the shelf, and ran over to the Pokemon games. She excitedly picked up one that was lying on top of the other toys and raced toward the check-out, after speaking with her father.  I picked up my purchases and got in line behind them. Then, much to the little girl's obvious delight, the little boy and his father got in line behind me.After the toy was paid for and bagged, the little girl handed it back to the cashier and whispered something in her ear. The cashier smiled and put the package under the counter.

小さな女の子は、明らかに彼女のバービー人形を選びました。このバービー人形は、きれいな服を着ていて、積み木(block)の上にあって、少女の誰もが羨望の的としてきた魅力的な人形でした。 それなのに、女の子は、(バービー人形をとりあげることを)やめて(stopped)、小さな男の子と父親とのやりとりを見つめていました。 しかし、なんかがっかりしたのか、少年はビデオゲームを諦めて、その代わりに、何かのステッカーを集めるブックのように見えるものを選びました。  彼と彼の父親は、お店の中の女の子がいるところとは別の通路を通って歩き始めました。  少女は、棚の上の後ろ側のある彼女のバービー人形を置いて、ポケモンゲームの方に、走っていきました。彼女は興奮して、他のおもちゃの上に横たわっていたものを拾うと、父親と話した後、チェックアウト(レジ)に向かって急ぎました。(race) 私は私の買いたいものを取り上げると、少女とその父親の後のレジ(精算所)に並びました。その時の少女は、とっても喜んでおり、(先ほどの)小さな男の子と彼の父は私の後ろに並んでました。おもちゃを支払った後で、それを袋詰めすると、少女は戻ってレジにそれを渡し、彼女の耳元で何かをささやきました。レジ係は微笑んで、カウンターの下に、(少女が買った包まれたおもちゃの)パッケージを置きました。

     I was doing some last-minute Christmas shopping in a toy store and decided to look at Barbie dolls for my nieces. A nicely dressed little girl was excitedly looking through the Barbie dolls as well, with a roll of money clamped tightly in her little hand. When she came upon a Barbie she liked, she would turn and ask her father if she had enough money to buy it. He usually said "yes," but she would keep looking and keep going through their ritual of "do I have enough?"  As she was looking, a little boy wandered in across the aisle and started sorting through the Pokemon toys. He was dressed neatly, but in clothes that were obviously rather worn, and wearing a jacket that was probably a couple of sizes too small. He too had money in his hand, but it looked to be no more than five dollars or so at the most. He was with his father as well, and kept picking up the Pokemon video toys. Each time he picked one up and looked at his father, his father shook his head,"no".

     I paid for my purchases and was rearranging things in my purse when the little boy came up to the cashier. The cashier rang up his purchases and then said, "Congratulations, you are my hundredth customer today, and you win a prize!"With that, she handed the little boy the Pokemon game, and he could only stare in disbelief. It was, he said, exactly what he had wanted!  The little girl and her father had been standing at the doorway during all of this, and I saw the biggest, prettiest, toothless grin on that little girl that I have ever seen in my life.    As I walked back to my car in amazement over what I had just witnessed, I heard the father ask his daughter why she had done that."Daddy, didn't Grandma and Grandpa want me to buy something that would make me happy?"He said, "Of course they did, honey."the little girl replied, "Well, I just did!"

One was of the late king,his father.The other was of Claudius.“Mother,"placeed Hamlet,“can't you see the difference? You must be able to see what a good man my father was,and what a villain your new husband is!" But at that moment,the old ghost reappeared out of nowhere.“Hamlet,"it said in the same eerie voice,“have you forgotten that you gave me your word? Why are you causing your mother so much agony? And why are you still hesitating? Get on with it!" Hamlet started to explain himself,but the ghost vanished as quickly as it had appeared.

  • Lateral Thinking (1)

    長文失礼します。 Many years ago when a person who owed money could be thrown into jail, a merchant in London had the misfortune to owe a huge sum to a money-lender. The money-lender, who was old and ugly, fancied the merchant's beautiful teenage daughter. He proposed a bargain. He said he would cancel the merchant's debt if he could have the girl instead. Both the merchant and his daughter were horrified at the proposal. So the cunning money-lender proposed that they let Providence decide the matter. He told them that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into an empty money-bag and then the girl would have to pick out one of the pebbles. If she chose the black pebble she would become his wife and her father's debt would be cancelled. If she chose the white pebble she would stay with her father and the debt would still be cancelled. But if she refused to pick out a pebble her father would be thrown into jail and she would starve. Reluctantly the merchant agreed. They were standing on a pebble-strewn path in the merchant's garden as they talked and the money-lender stooped down to pick up the two pebbles. As he picked up the pebbles the girl, sharp-eyed with fright, noticed that he picked up two black pebbles and put them into the money-bag. He then asked the girl to pick out the pebble that was to decide 《her fate and that of her father.》 Imagine that you are standing on that path in the merchant's garden. What would you have done if you had been the unfortunate girl? If you had had to advise her what would you have advised her to do? (The use of lateral thinking by E. De Bono) 所有格について教えてください。 《her fate and that of her father》の個所は(《》は自分で付けたものです)、 fate of her and her father,もしくはher fate and father'sとしても同じ意味ですか?  質問文が長くなってしまって恐縮です。 よろしくお願いいたします。

    There he was on the ground,in no condition to go on, and all of a sudden he was no longer in Poland.instead,he found himself imaging himself standing on a stage on postwar Vienna giving a lecture on The Psychology of Death Camps. Audience of two hundred listened to his every word. The lecture was one that he had been working out the whole time he had been in the death camp. He spoke about how some people seem to survive the experience better than others, psychologically and emotionally. It was a brilliant lecture, all taking place in his mind's eye and ear. He was no longer half dead on the field but living in the lecture. During the lecture, Frankl told the imaginary audience about the day he was in that field being beaten and was certain he didn't have the strength to get up and keep walking.    Then, wonder of wonders, he told his imagined audience, he was able to stand up. The guard stopped beating him and get began to walk slowly. As he was imagining describing this to his audience, his body got up and began to walk. He continued to imagine this lecture all the while he was doing the work and through the cold march back to the death comp. He collapsed into his narrow bed, imagining ending this brilliantly clear speech and receiving a standing ovation.
