ESL 8: Pete's Sharp Knife


Download


Pete was in his kitchen. He was about to slice three green apples. He liked to eat fresh apples with cinnamon sprinkled on them. He opened the blinds so that he could get more sunlight into the kitchen. Now he could see what he was doing.

He grabbed a knife out of a drawer. It said "Surgical Stainless USA" on the side of the blade. The blade was very thin and light. It had teeth, like a saw. The handle was a brown piece of cheap hollow plastic.

He had bought this knife about 20 years ago at a county fair. It was one of those knives that were advertised on TV. It could cut through a tomato can, and then cut easily and cleanly through a fresh tomato.

"You never need to sharpen it. The sharp edge is guaranteed for life." That’s how they advertised it. And Pete, for once, couldn’t argue that the advertisers lied. This was a great knife.

But it was also a dangerous knife. A couple of years ago, Pete was careless. He was rapidly slicing a potato and the blade got his finger. The doctor put three stitches in Pete’s finger.

"Next time, be more careful," the doctor said.

No kidding, Pete thought. He was so careful that he didn’t use the knife for almost a year.

Sharp lưỡi dao của Pete.
Pete ở trong bếp. Anh cắt mỏng 3 quả táo xanh, anh thích ăn Táo tươi rắc vài cái lá quế lên trên.
Anh kéo rèm cửa sổ để ánh sáng mặt trời rọi vào nhà bếp. Bây giờ anh có thể nhìn thấy những gì anh đang làm.
Anh cầm con dao ra khỏi ngăn kéo. Một bên mặt lưởi dao ghi ' Dao phẫu thuật không gỉ của Mỹ ', lưỡi dao rất mỏng và nhẹ, nó có răng giống như cái lưỡi cưa. Cán dao hơi lõm vào màu nâu.
Anh mua con dao này cách đây khoảng 20 năm, tại hội chợ triển lãm của tỉnh. Nó là 1 trong những con dao dược quảng cáo trên T.V.
Nó có thể cắt thùng đựng cà chua dể dàng, sau đó xuyên thẳng vào quả cà chua còn tươi.
Bạn không bao giờ cần phải mài nó, bảo đảm lưởi dao sắc rất thọ. Đó là cách họ quảng cáo nó. Và Pete bị thuyết phục trong lần nghe bài quảng cáo ở đó. Đây là một con dao rất tuyệt.
Nhưng nó cũng rất nguy hiểm. 2 năm trước Pete đã dùng nó không cẩn thận, anh cắt mỏng củ khoai tây một cách nhanh lẹ, lưởi dao đã gọt vào ngón tay của anh. Bác sĩ phải khâu 3 mũi vào ngón tay của Pete.
Lần tới phải cẩn thận hơn nhé ' bác sĩ dặn dò.
Không phải trẻ con, Pete thầm nghĩ, thế nhưng gần một năm anh đã không sử dụng nó

Con dao sắc bén của Pete

Peter đang ở trong nhà bếp. Anh ấy sắp sửa cắt 3 trái táo xanh. Anh thích ăn táo tươi có rắc quế lên trên. Anh kéo rèm cửa để có thể nhận ánh sáng mặt trời chiếu vào nhiều hơn trong nhà bếp. Bây giờ, anh có thể thấy mình đang làm gì.

Anh cầm lấy con dao trong ngăn kéo. Ở mặt trên của lưỡi dao có ghi "Phẫu thuật Không rỉ USA". Lưỡi dao rất mỏng và nhẹ. Nó có răng trông giống như lưỡi cưa. Cán cầm là một miếng nhựa mỏng hõm vào màu nâu.

Anh đã mua con dao này 20 năm trước ở một Hội Chợ Tỉnh. Đó là một trong những con dao được quảng cáo trên TV. Nó có thể cắt ngang qua hộp đựng cà chua, và sau đó cắt dễ dàng và gọn gàng qua một trái cà chua tươi.

"Bạn không bao giờ cần phải mài nó. Độ sắc bén được bảo đảm suốt đời". Đó là những gì họ đã quảng cáo về nó. Và Pete, một lần duy nhất, đã không thể phủ định rằng quảng cáo đã nói dối. Đó là một con dao rất tốt.

Nhưng đó cũng là một con dao nguy hiểm. Một vài năm về trước, Pete đã bất cẩn. Anh đã nhanh chóng cắt mỏng một củ khoai tây và đã cắt vào ngón tay anh ấy. Bác sĩ đã khâu 3 mũi trên ngón tay của Pete.

"Lần tới, hãy cẩn thận hơn nhé," bác sĩ nói.

Đúng là không thể đùa, Pete nghĩ. Anh đã cẩn trọng đến nổi không sử dụng con dao gần một năm nay.

Con dao sắc bén của Pete
Pete đang ở trong nhà bếp của ông. Ông định sẽ xắt lát ba quả táo xanh . Ông thích ăn táo tươi với quế rắc lên . Ông đã mở toang những tấm màn để có thể nhận được ánh sáng mặt trời nhiều hơn vào trong gian bếp. Bây giờ thì ông có thể nhìn rõ thấy những thao tác của mình.

Ông đã mua con dao này khoảng 20 năm trước tại một hội chợ của Quận. Đó là một trong những loại dao đã được quảng cáo trên truyền hình. Nó có thể cắt khoanh một quả cà chua đóng hộp, và cũng có thể cắt khoanh một cách dễ dàng và suông sẻ một quả cà chua tươi.


"Bạn không bao giờ cần phải mài nó. Độ sắc bén của nó được bảo đảm lâu dài". Họ đã quảng cáo về nó như vậy. Và Pete, dù chỉ một lần, không thể lập luận rằng các nhà quảng cáo đã nói dối. Đây là một loại dao cao cấp.

Nhưng nó cũng là một loại dao nguy hiểm. Một vài năm trước, Pete đã bất cẩn. Khi ông vội vàng xắt lát một củ khoai tây và lưỡi dao đã đi qua ngón tay của ông . Bác sĩ đã phải khâu ba mũi ở ngón tay của Pete.

"Sau này, phải cẩn thận hơn", bác sĩ căn dặn như vậy.

Không đùa, Pete nghĩ thế. Ông đã rất cẩn thận vì vậy ông đã không sử dụng đến con dao gần một năm nay.

Pete ở trong bếp. Anh ta chuẩn bị cắt 3 quả táo xanh. Anh ta thích ăn táo tươi với quả quế rắc lên. Anh ta mở rèm cửa để có thêm ánh sáng vào nhà bếp. Giờ thì anh ta có thể thấy những gì anh ta đang làm.
Anh ta lấy con dao ra khỏi ngăn kéo. Trên bề mặt con dao có dòng chữ " Thép không rỉ dành cho phẫu thuật tiêu chuẩn Mỹ". Lưỡi dao rất mỏng và nhẹ. Nó có răng như lưỡi cưa. Cán dao là một lớp nhựa rỗng tuếch rẽ tiền màu nâu.
Anh ta mua con dao này cách đây khoảng 20 năm tại hội chợ quận. Nó là một trong những con dao được quảng cáo trên TV. Nó có thể cắt xuyên qua hộp cà chua. rồi sau đó dễ dàng cắt cà tươi 1 cách sạch sẽ.
" Bạn kô cần fải mài dao. Lưỡi dao bén được bảo hành suốt đời". Đó là lời quảng cáo về con dao. Và một lần, Pete kô cho rằng các nhà quảng cáo đã nói dối. Đây là 1 con dao tuyệt vời.
Nhưng nó cũng là 1 con dao nguy hiểm. Cách đây 2 năm, Pete đã kô cẩn thận. Anh ta đang cắt khoai tây 1 cách gấp gáp và kết quả là cắt vào ngón tay mình. Bác sỉ phải khâu 3 mũi trên ngón tay của Pete.
"Lần tới, cẩn thận hơn nhé" Bác sỉ khuyên.
Pete nghĩ, kô được đùa với dao. Sau đó suốt 1 năm, anh ta cẩn thận đến độ không đụng đến con dao.
