英语故事 我懂他的话

I Understand Him

While eating in a restaurant, I reprimanded my four-year-old son for speaking with his mouth full . “Mump umn Kmpfhm,” was all I heard.

“Drew,” I scolded, “no one can understand a word you’re saying.

“He says he wants some ketchup,” my husband said calmly

A woman sitting nearby leaned over and asked, “How in the world did you understand him?”

“I’m a dentist,” my husband explained.
