课文(一):一个豆瓣的旅行

我是一颗小小的豆瓣,我跟朋友们离开了菜市场,先来到一口锅里,又来到一个盘子里,接着我被一双筷子夹起来,送进一个小孩儿的嘴里。

那个小孩儿嘴里长着两排整齐的牙齿。许多朋友被牙齿碎了,跟嘴里的唾液搅和在一起。那个小孩儿吃得太快了,我还没有被嚼碎,就跟大伙儿一起进了食道。

我顺着食道往下走,来到胃里。胃不停地蠕动,分泌出胃液,嚼碎了的同伴都变成了糊糊。我在胃里转了几个钟头,还是一颗好好的豆瓣。后来,我到了小肠

小肠就像一根弯弯曲曲的管子。它分泌出很多肠液,加上胆汁胰液,搅拌着胃里送来的糊糊。糊糊里许多营养被肠壁吸收了,剩下一些渣滓。我在小肠里转了半天,还是一颗好好的豆瓣,又跟着渣滓滑进了大肠

大肠是排泄渣滓的。我同渣滓一起,顺着大肠从肛门里跑了出来。就这样,我在那个小孩儿的身体里白白旅行了一趟。

Text (1): travel of a bean

 

I am a small broad bean. I left the vegetable market with my friends. First I came to a pot then I came to a plate. Then I was caught by a pair of chopsticks and put into a child’s mouth.

The child had two neat rows of teeth in his mouth. Many friends were chewed up by his teeth and mixed with saliva in his mouth. The child ate too fast. I haven’t been chewed and I moved, with the other chewed food into the esophagus.

I passed down the esophagus and came to the stomach. The stomach moves with peristalsis, secretes gastric juice and the food that was chewed turned into gunk. I turned in the stomach for a few hours, and I was still a good bean. Later, I went into the small intestine.

The small intestine is like a winding tube. It secretes a lot of intestinal fluid, bile, and pancreatic juices mixing with the gunk from the stomach. Many nutrients in the paste are absorbed by the intestinal wall, leaving some leftovers. I moved along in the small intestine, still a good bean, and followed the leftovers into the large intestine.

The large intestine excretes its product. I came out of the anus with the leftovers, leaving the large intestine. Just like that, I traveled in the child’s body for nothing.
