In a burst of benevolence（善心）， I went up to him and said:"Pardon me， sir， would you mind me purchasing you one of these puddings?"With that， (对方的逆答：难堪和不满) Isawthe blood rushed to his face as if he had been stung. (吾的旁白注释) Obviously， my words pierced his heart. （行为描写）Heshivered， rubbing his hands together fiercely. (最先谈话了) Noticing thatthe whole world was watching him， he stumbled， “Excuse me， sir， you must have mistaken me for someone else.” (吾的逆答: 懊丧)Just then， aripple of regret welled up inside me. （主要对话）“Please show me these puddings，” he turned to the shop girl and said with determination， pointing to the best puddings.
The girl started to make a parcel of it， while he pulled out a worn little black pocketbook.( 接下来的行为描写要陪专一绪运动：怎么拿出钱；怎么放钱）The gentleman began to fumble about in the pocketbook for coins， an expression of seriousness on his face. He placed the coins on the counter so gracefully and carefully one by one. His chin rose in a proud gesture after doing it. (吾的心绪运动) Iwas so overwhelmed by my guilt and shame. How I wished I could unsay the foolish words! (现在送) Thenall of us watched him stagger to the door and leave silently. Never haveI seen him go there to sample the puddings any more.
In a certain storewhere they sell puddings，a number of these delicious things are laid out in a row during the Christmasseason. Here you may select the one which is most to your taste， and you are even allowed to samplethem before coming to a decision.
I have often wondered whether some people， who had no intention of making a purchase， would take advantage of this privilege. One day I asked this question to theshop girl， and Ilearned it was indeed the case.
“Now there’s one old gentleman， for instance，”she told me， “he comes here almost every week and samples each one of the puddings， though he never buys anything， and I suspect he never will. I remember him from last year before that， too. Well， let him come if he wants it， and welcome to it.”
She was still speaking when an elderly gentlemanlimped (跛走) up to the counterand began looking closely at the row of puddings with great interest.
“Why， that's the very gentleman I’ve been telling you about，”whispered the shop girl. “Just watch him now.”And then turning to him: “Would you like to sample them， sir? Here's spoonfor you to use.”
The elderly gentleman， who was poorly but neatly dressed， accepted the spoon and began eagerly to sample one after another of the puddings， only braking off occasionally to wipe his red eyes with a large torn handkerchief.
“This is quite good.”
“This is not bad either， but a little too heavy.”
All the time it was quite evident that he sincerely believed that he might eventually buy one of these puddings， and I am positive that he did not for a moment feel that he was in any way cheating the store. Poor old chap! Probably he had come down in the world and this sampling was all that was left him from the time when he could affordto come and select his favorite pudding.
In a burst of benevolence( 善举)， I went up to him and said:“Pardon me， sir， would you mind me purchasing you one of these puddings?”
The girl started to make a parcel of it， while he pulled out a worn little black pocketbook.
I， the gentleman， the shop girl
The gentleman: lovely， kind
The shop girl: kind
In a burst of benevolence， I went up to him and said:"Pardon me， sir， would you mind me purchasing you one of these puddings?"He jumped back as if he had been stung， and the blood rushed into his wrinkled face."Excuse me，" he said， with more dignity than I would have thought possible，"Undoubtedly you have mistaken me for someone else." And with a quick decision he turned to the shop girland said in a loud voice， "Kindly pack me up this one here." He pointed at one of the largest and most expensive of the puddings.
The girl started to make a parcel of it， while he pulled out a worn little black pocketbook.He began counting out shillings and pennies on to the counter. How Ilonged for the power to unsay my tactless words! It was too late though， and I felt that the kindest thing I could do now would be walk away."You pay at the desk，" the shop girl was telling him， but he did not seem to understand and kept trying to put the coins into her hand. And that was the last I heard of or saw of the old man. Now he can never go there to samplepudding any more.
