Thomas: It’s not?!


Wendy: No, my birthday is on March27th.

我的生日是3月27日。

When is your birthday?

Thomas: My birthday was on August the 15th.


Wendy: Oh你刚刚过完你的生日. 你生日怎么庆祝的?

What did you do for your birthday?


Thomas: No, not really.  I worked on that day, so Ichose another day to  celebrate with my friends. 


Wendy: 嗯,很多生日因为工作只能错后再和家人和朋友一起庆祝了。你过生日都喜欢怎么庆祝呢?

What things do you like to do on your birthday? 


Thomas: Well, when I was a child my parents would hold parties for me.  I would invite my classmates and friends over to have fun on my big day.


Wendy: 生日聚会在中国也越来越流行了。你们的生日聚会一般都做些什么呢?

And, what would you do at the party?


Thomas: Well, we would play games, eat food, have cake, make a wish and then I would open my presents.


Wendy: 玩游戏,吃东西,吃蛋糕,拆礼物,许愿应该是生日聚会不变的主题。你最喜欢的生日礼物是什么?

What was your favorite present?


Thomas: Oh, that’s an easy question.  My favorite present was a tennis racquet that I received for my 12th birthday.  Because of that racquet, I learned how to play tennis.  In fact, I  went on to play tennis for my high school and college teams.  I still like to play  nowadays whenever I have the chance. 


Wendy: 12岁的生日礼物网球拍你都还保留着,太珍贵了。我还记得你一开始说生日聚会的 时候你们会玩游戏。 你们一般玩什么游戏呢?

Earlier, you said that games are also played at birthdays.  What games do you play?


Thomas: Hmmm?  Well we like to play a lot of games with blindfolds.  Blindfolds are used to cover our eyes so that we can’t see as we try to pin the tail on the donkey.


Wendy: 很多游戏都使用眼罩?

Pin the tail on the donkey!

给驴子贴尾巴!我玩过这个游戏。是不是把一张没有尾巴的驴子的图贴在墙上,然后给一个人呆上眼罩,他必须把驴子的尾巴贴在正确的位置上。谁贴的最靠近正确的位置,谁就赢了!


Thomas: Hahaha…Exactly!


Wendy: 还有哪些需要用到眼罩的游戏?

Are there any other games with blindfolds?


Thomas: Oh yes.  I remember one birthday having a piñata.


Wendy: Piñata? 这是什么 What’s that?


Thomas: Well, it’s an animal that is made from many layers of paper and glue.  The glue helps it  to become quite solid so that it doesn’t break easily.  The piñata is hung from the  ceiling and the blindfolded person has to hit it with a stick.  Eventually, the piñata  breaks and candy falls from it.  It’s a Mexican tradition, and it’s a lot of fun.


Wendy: 用纸和胶水一层一层糊成一只动物的模样,里面放满糖果。把这个动物挂在天花板上,人们带着眼罩,用棍子去丢它直到这只纸质的动物被弄破,糖果掉出来。原来这是墨西哥的传统游戏。听起来太好玩了。

It sounds like fun!  Well, it’s time to say goodbye for now. Thank you, Thomas, for coming and talking about birthdays. 


Thomas: Thank you, Wendy, for having me on the show. 


Wendy: Thank you for coming and don’t forget to join us next time.  Goodbye!
