In the capital of Iceland, Mrs. Brown's old grandfather lived with her and her husband. Every morning he went for his regular walk in the park and came home at half past twelve for his lunch.
在冰岛首都,布朗夫人年迈的祖父母同布朗夫妇住在一起。老人家每天上午都要去公园散步,12点半钟准时回家吃午饭。
 
But one morning a police car stopped outside Mrs. Brown's house at twelve o'clock, and two cops1 helped Mr. Brown to get out. One of them said to Mrs. Brown, “The forgetful old gentleman lost his way in the park and telephoned to us for help, so we sent a car to bring him home.” Mrs. Brown was very surprised that she thanked the cops gratefully and they left.
可是,一天上午,一辆警车在12点钟停在了布朗夫人的家门口,两个警察搀扶着布朗先生走出车子。一位警察对布朗夫人说,“这位健忘的老先生在公园迷路了,打电话向我们求援,所以我们派车把老人送回家来。”布朗夫人感到很诧异,不过还是向警察衷心地道了谢。警察走了。
 
“But, grandfather,” she then asked the suspect old man, “you have been to that park nearly every day for twenty years. How did you lose your way there?”
“可是,爷爷,”她感到很可疑地问爷爷,“20年来你几乎天天都去这个公园散步,怎么会在那儿迷了路呢?”
 
The old man smiled, clapped his forehead and said, “The sunlight is too strong. I merely got tired and I didn't want to walk home. So I went to a phone booth2 and dialed to the police!”
老人拍了拍脑门笑着说,“阳光太强了,我只不过是太累了,不想走着回家。于是我就找到电话亭给警察拨了个电话。”
