The poor man held his bread over the soup,

于是他拿起蛋糕悬在汤的上面,

so the steam from the soup went into the bread,and gave it a good smell.

Then he ate the bread.

The restaurant owner was very angry at this,

and he asked the man for money,in exchange for the steam from the soup.

使它们发出丁丁当当的声音。"那是什么?"饭店老板问。

"That was payment for you,"answered Johnson.

那是付给你的钱。"约翰逊回答道。

"What do you mean? That was just the sound of coins!"

"你是什么意思?那只不过是铜板的声音!"

protested the restaurant owner.

饭店老板抗议道。

"The sound of the coins is payment for the smell of the soup,"

"铜板的声音用来支付汤的味道,"

answered Johnson."Now go back to your restaurant."
