I’ve lived in my condo for 15 years now—long enough that I don’t even see it anymore. I started dreaming about moving into a house, where I was bound to be happier.
我在我的公寓住了15年,時間太長了,我都甚至都沒有好好看看它。我開始夢想著能夠搬進獨棟的房子,那樣的話我應該會更加開心。

I on little yellow houses somewhere in the suburbs of Chicago and watched for them from the train on my commute. “Oh, look—there’s one!” I’d say as it slid by.
在來回上班的火車上,芝加哥城郊的黃色房子吸引了我的注意。“看,這有一個!”這個房子在視線一晃而過的時候,我說道。

Then one day, sitting in the sun on my patio, I looked up and realized the outside of my condo was done in yellow siding. I already had a yellow house. And I was home!
之后的某一天,我在自家的露臺上曬太陽,抬頭看發現公寓外墻漆成了黃色。原來我已經有了黃色的房子,而且我還在家(真是后知后覺)!
