 He was curious. Why does she always drink Strawberry juice?  He told her. How about Banana juice this time? You will love it. Nay, I am fine with Strawberry juice. She answered. Aren’t you tired of having it all the time? He asked. Nah, Strawberry juice is just good for me. I’ve never tried other drinks. They might ruin my entire meal. He was still curious.

One fine day he and she go to a mart for her favorite lunch juice. Sold Out. She sees. Lunch is ruined! She thinks. He picks up another flavored juice for her. Try it for your sake. He says. Whatever. She takes it. One sip. It’s not bad she thinks. Another sip. It’s actually pretty good. And one bottle she finishes it. He smiles and asks. How’s it. She smiles and replies. Not bad. She realizes finally.

Sometimes you gotta be bold enough to try and learn new things, he tells her. You might love it. Or you might even be good at it! It’s the perks of living a life. What’s the fun without having new things in our life? Hmmm. What now to drink? He asks. Well, who knows, let’s try the other one!

【嶄新的嘗試】

爲什麽她只喝草莓汁呢?他百思不得其解。於是他問:「這次試試香蕉汁好麼?你一定會喜歡的。」「還是不要了吧,草莓汁就可以了。我從未試過其他飲料,我怕它們會毀了這餐飯。」她回答道,這讓他更加莫名其妙。

有一天,他們一起去市集買她鍾愛的午餐飲料;然而草莓汁賣完了。「天啊,我的午餐被毀掉了!」她懊惱地想。他則為她選了另一種口味的果汁:「試試它吧,我是真心爲了你好。」「好吧,管它呢!」這樣想著,她終於接過了果汁。輕抿一小口,「好像還不錯。」再嘗一口,「真的很好喝誒。」就這樣,她喝完了一整瓶。他滿含笑意地問道:「感覺怎麼樣?」她嘴角上揚的回答道:「還不錯呢。」至此,她終於回味過來。

有些時候,你真得需要去嘗試和學習新的東西。只有這樣,你才可能愛上它,或是可以對它應付自如。這就是生活賜予你的額外禮物。如果失去了嶄新的東西,生活變成什麼樣子呢?「現在要喝什麽呢?」他笑著問。「誰知道呢,我們一起嘗嘗其他的口味吧!」
