A Large Gulp of Guilt In That Bottle of Water
大口喝水,滿嘴罪惡
 
By ALEX WILLIAMS

On the recent family vacation in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, Jenny Pollack, 40, a novelist and public relations associate from Brooklyn, did something she knew she would come to regret. She did it spontaneously. She did it because she felt desperate.
 
40歲的小說家兼公共關係協會成員Jenny Pollack在最近到麻州Cape Cod的家族旅行中,做了一個她明知會後悔的決定。她是出於自願的,因為情況危急。
 
※Cape Cod 是麻薩諸塞州的一個岬角型的半島區,現在因為運河的開通,實際上已經變成一個獨立的半島,以三座大橋與北美洲相連,是美國熱門的旅遊勝地之一。

Besides, the giant illuminated Dasani vending machine was just standing there, like a beacon.

     何況,一旁就是巨大且閃爍著的Dasani販賣機,彷彿一盞明燈引導著她。

※Dasani 是可口可樂公司旗下的一個瓶裝水品牌,於1999年創立,是目前最大的瓶裝水品牌,與姊妹牌飲用水之差異在於其打著來自天然泉水的招牌,於本文中出現是為了突顯極大的諷刺。
