 STEVE: This place serves good breakfasts, don’t you think?
  HOWARD: Yes. But I’m not used to eating American-style breakfast.
  STEVE: What are you planning to do today?
  HOWARD: I saw yesterday that they rent windsurfers at the beach. I want to rent one.
  STEVE: Have you done windsurfing before?
  HOWARD: No, but it looks fun. I always wanted to try it.
  STEVE: Can you take a little advice from a friend?
  HOWARD: Sure. What?
  STEVE: Don’t waste your money. Windsurfing is very hard. And it will be windy today.They will charge you fifty dollars for a half-hour, and you won’t be able to windsurf.You will fall and fall and fall.
  HOWARD: But I always wanted to try it.
  STEVE: Yes, but it takes a long time to learn.You would spend a thousand dollars to learn it on a rental windsurfer.
  HOWARD: Well, I will see. How was your day at the office?
  STEVE: Hectic. It’s always hectic. But how was your windsurfing?
  HOWARD: I tried it for a half-hour.It was interesting, but... well... I couldn’t really do it.
  STEVE: See? I told you. It’s very hard.
  HOWARD: I couldn’t even stand on it and hold the sail. I probably fell down fifty times.
  STEVE: Fifty times?
  HOWARD: Yes, it was really stupid.
  STEVE: And how much did it cost to rent it?
  HOWARD: It was fifty dollars for a half-hour.
  STEVE: Well, that’s not too bad then.
  HOWARD: What do you mean? It’s expensive!
  STEVE: Yes, but you have to calculate a little.You paid fifty dollars and you fell down fifty times.So you only spent one dollar per fall. That’s cheap.
  史帝芬:这家的早餐不错吧?
  郝华:不错,但是我还是不习惯美国的早餐。
  史帝芬:你今天打算做什么?
  郝华:昨天我在海边看到有人租冲浪板,我想租一个。
  史帝芬:你以前冲过浪吗?
  郝华:没有,但是看起来很好玩,我一直想试试看。
  史帝芬:你可以听听朋友的意见吗?
  郝华:当然,请说。
  史帝芬:别浪费钱了,冲浪很困难的,而且今天风很大。他们半小时收费五十元,你根本冲不起来。你会一直落水的。
  郝华:但是我一直想试试看。
  史帝芬:不过学这个要很久。你租冲浪板来学会让你花上一大笔钱。
  郝华:我再看看。今天工作得如何?
  史帝芬:忙啊,一直很忙。你有去冲浪吗?
  郝华:我冲了半小时。挺有趣的,但是我真的不太会。
  史帝芬:看吧!我告诉过你很困难的。
  郝华:我甚至站不上去,也抓不到帆,我大概落水五十次。
  史帝芬:五十次?
  郝华:对啊,真笨。
  史帝芬:你租它花了多少钱?
  郝华:半小时五十元。
  史帝芬:那还不算糟嘛。
  郝华:你说什么?很贵的!
  史帝芬:没错,不过你算算看。你花了五十元,摔了五十次。所以摔一次只花了一元,很便宜啊。
