Lesson Transcript

追风少年。
我家离我读的小学还是挺远的,每天要走半小时才到。忘了是哪一年,学校弄了个大大的单车棚,说可以申请骑单车上学。我闻之大喜。像我这种“追风少年”,速度就是生命,单车就是四肢,没车我就是个残疾。只是...我家没有单车。而且,我不会骑车。
于是回家我就哭啊闹啊在地上滚啊爬啊的要妈妈给我买自行车。我之所以要这么无耻,就因为妈妈是一个彻底的节俭者,你给她一亩地,她能种出个沃尔玛,谁也别想从她身上赚到一分钱。烦了一周后妈妈说“你学会骑车我就买!”于是我努力就跟邻居大哥哥学会了骑自行车。但其实没怎么努力,因为你知道,我们这种追风的小孩,天生就有速度感。
但当我去跟妈妈兑奖时,妈妈居然拉下脸说“等有钱再买!”于是我又哭啊闹啊在地上滚啊爬啊的。妈妈受不了,就不知道从哪个远房亲戚那儿给我弄来一辆估计捡破烂的都拒收的二手大单车。现在想起来,那车也没那么破,只不过在爱幻想又有追求的我眼里,除了我看上的变速车之外别的连车都算不上。于是我又哭啊闹啊在地上滚啊爬啊的,“我要新单车!我要变速车!”没错,就是当年很红的变速车,拧一拧车把就跟变形金刚要变身似的那种车。妈妈只好妥协,但她提出要我用“洗碗两个月”的劳动力来换新车。我由于经济不独立以及没有骨气,只好接受了这种屈辱条件。不过有了前车之鉴,我坚持先收货再卖身。于是,一辆崭新的紫兰色越野变速车从此就在我家门口发光了。同时,我也开始了两个月的洗碗生涯。
后来,爹妈一直把这件事当作他们教育有方的案例,“孩子要的东西不能轻易给,要他们明白天下没有免费的晚餐”云云。但作为小孩的我根本没有领会到这个道理。我只明白了两件事——第一,妈妈是个大骗子。第二,长大要赚很多很多钱,想买什么买什么。
再后来,某个周末我在家里洗碗,表姐来找我玩,一到就迫不及待说有个大八卦,“哎呀刚刚我走来,巷子口那谁说,你们这条路上有家孩子要洗两个月碗才能买个单车欸...”
这就是我成长的小镇,大家都没有秘密的呢。

Hello Simon,


Thank you for your comment. 追风 literally means 'chasing the wind', 少年 means 'youngster'. The speaker called herself 追风少年, and she explained that she loved the speed when riding a bicycle.


As always, let us know if you have any questions.

Like I have a dictionary so I can work the rest of the text myself but the first few words 'zhui feng shao nian' are not translated so I was wondering, for example, what it means.
