一、【Text】课文

 

The next man to approach me was selling expensive pens and watches. I examined one of the pens closely. It certainly looked

genuine. At the base of the gold cap, the words 'made in the U.S.A.' had been neatly inscribed. The man said that the pen was

worth £50, but as a special favour, he would let me have it for £30. I shook my head and held up five fingers indicating that I

was willing to pay £5. Gesticulating wildly, the man acted as if he found my offer outrageous, but he eventually reduced the

price to £10. Shrugging my shoulders, I began to walk away when, a moment later, he ran after me and thrust the pen into my

hands. Though he kept throwing up his arms in despair, he readily accepted the £5 I gave him. I felt especially pleased with my

wonderful bargain----until I got back to the ship. No matter how hard I tried, it was impossible to fill this beautiful pen with ink

and to this day it has never written a single word!
