In the hospital, where their family member lay gravely ill, the relatives gathered in the waiting room. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.

家属全部聚集在医院的等候室,守着他们病重的家人。最后,医生带着疲倦而严峻的面容出现了。“恐怕有坏消息要告诉你们。他边说边环视”着众人担忧的脸庞:

"The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant.It's an experimental procedure, risky, and you will have to pay for the brain yourselves."

“到了这个地步,你们亲爱的家人唯一的希望就是进行大脑移植,但这项手术还在实验阶段,风险很大,而且脑袋的钱你们得自行负担。”

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news.At length, someone asked, "Well, how much does a brain cost?"

听到这个消息,家属全都静静地坐着。最后有人问道:“那么,一颗脑袋要多少钱?”

The doctor quicklyresponded, "$2,000 for a female brain, and $5,000 for a male brain."

医生很快回答:“女人的脑袋一颗2000 元,男人的脑袋一颗5000 元。”

The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked.

气氛变得很尴尬。等候室的男性家属忍住不笑,避免接触到女性家属的眼神,但还是有些人不太自然地在偷笑。

A girl, unable to control her curiosity, blurted out the question everyone wanted to ask, "Why is the male brain so much more?"

有个女孩控制不了好奇心,大家都想问的问题被她一下子脱口而出:"男人的脑袋为什么贵那么多?”

The doctor smiled at her childish innocence and then to the entire group said,"It's a standard pricing procedure. We have to mark the female brains down, because they've been used."

“这是标准的定价方式。我们不得不调降女人脑袋的价格,是因为它们一直都在使用。”医生对她的赤子之心报以微笑,接着对全部的人说道:“这是标准的定价方式。我们不得不调降女人脑袋的价格,是因为它们一直都在使用。”
