Whenever a question like this comes up, there’s only one thing that immediately comes to mind.
無論什么時候類似這一個問題出現,馬上浮現在我腦海中的只有一樣東西。

I was over visiting my grandmother one day, and with lunchtime approaching, she told me to sit down while she goes and makes me some lunch (because for some reason you can never leave your grandparents place without eating!).
有一天我去拜訪我的奶奶,當時臨近午餐時間,她讓我坐下來,她去為我準備午餐。(由于某些原因,你想不吃點什么就離開你爺爺奶奶家是不可能的?。?/div>

A few minutes later she returns with a cup of tea and a sandwich. After taking a sip of tea, I bite into the sandwich and I’m immediately met by a loud crunch, which is then followed by a sharp, pungent taste. Turns out that Nan’s a big fan of onions, and decided to make me a?raw onion sandwich!
幾分鐘之后,她端著一杯茶和一個三明治過來。喝了一小口茶后,我咬了一大口三明治伴隨著嘎吱嘎吱的聲音,隨后一股刺鼻、刺激的味道出現了。很明顯奶奶是洋蔥的骨灰級粉絲,所以她決定給我做生洋蔥三明治。

I put my hatred of raw onions to the side and force fed myself this sandwich while smiling and nodding in appreciation; I was just thankful that she hadn’t made me two of them!
我放下對生洋蔥的討厭,逼自己吃完整個三明治,并且微笑點頭表示感謝。我只是感激她并沒有讓我吃兩個!
