Where to Eat去哪儿吃饭
Helen: Where are you off to?
Reymond: I figured I try my fortune in the dining hall. It's time for dinner．
Helen: What kind of fortune do you want to try?
Reymond: I just hope I'm lucky enough today to find some delicious food for a change. The food can be a little...strange sometimes.
Helen: You are dreaming. The chances that you might find edible food in our cafeteria are about as high as finding a diamond ring on the floor or a brick of pure gold on the ground.
Reymond: I know, but I can still hope for the best. can't I? And besides, I don't have any cash today so I can't go out.
Helen: I get it; you're broke. So I'II lend you a little cash and we can go out. But next week when you have some money,
it'll be your treat, OK?
Reymond: It's a deal.
1.“Where are you off to?“相当于“Where are you going?“，意思是“你要去哪儿？“。
2.“for a change“在这里可译为“换换口味“，“change“在这里用作名词，可以解释为: something which is pleasant or
interesting because it is unusual or new，即“因为新奇而美好有趣的事物“。例如：How about dinner out for a change?（我们换换口味，出去吃饭怎么样？）It's nice to see her smile for a change.（看到她偶尔能笑一笑，很不错。） We've always had a red car;it's time we had a change! （我们总是开一辆红色的车，也该变一变了！）
