113- خبر 6

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

سلام. حالتون؟ احوالتون؟

تا حالا واسه اینکه متفاوت باشید یا اینکه بخواهید ثابت کنید متفاوت هستید چه کرده اید؟یا چه هزینه هایی را پرداخت کرده اید؟ یا تا به حال نشنیده اید بقیه افراد چه بهایی را برای متفاوت بودن پرداخت کرده اند؟

یا اصلا یه سوال دیگه. تو چه چیزهایی باید متفاوت بود؟ یا میشه متفاوت بود؟

خبری که امروز می خونیم یه چیز ساختگی نیست. یه مطلب واقعی است از ستاره های سینما که چه ها نمی کنند که بگند من متفاوتم.

خبر را به صورت چند پاراگراف خدمتتون ارایه می کنم . و بعد از هر پاراگراف کلماتی که شاید یه مقداری سخت باشه را معنی می کنم. اما انگلیسی. اما آخر سر معنی فارسی را هم میگم. آخر مطلب.

1. Who hasn’t heard a celebrity baby name and said: “What were they thinking?” Hollywood headliners have a knack for choosing wild names. We all remember Gwyneth Paltrow’s Apple, Penn Jillette’s Moxie Crimefighter, and Jason Lee’s Pilot Inspektor (arguably the craziest of the crazy names).
