听写原文:


A Henpecked Husband and His Wife

There was once a large, fat woman who had a small, thin husband. He had a job in a big company and was given his weekly wages every Friday evening. As soon as he got home on Fridays, his wife used to make him give her all his money, and then she used to give him back only enough to buy his lunch in his company every day.
One day, the small man came home very excited. He hurried into the living-room. His wife was listening to the radio and eating chocolates there.
“You will never guess what happened to me to day, dear.” he said.
He waited for a few seconds and then added, “I won ten thousand dollars on the lottery!”
“That is wonderful! ” said his wife delightedly. But then she pulled a long face and added angrily, “But how could you afford to buy the ticket?”

Useful Words and Expressions:
1. henpecked 怕老婆的,妻管严的
2. lottery 彩票
a great lottery 虚无缥缈的事
3. pull a long face 拉下脸来
have a face to say that脸皮厚得竟能讲出这种话
