Okay. Let me tell you about my experience last summer when we visited my grandparents in a village in Shandong Province.
My grandparents’ village is by the Huang He River. In the first 2 days there, everything was still fresh, the woods, the water, the lotus leaves, the pond, the cattle, the fields and the cicada hunting. And then boredom started to haunt me. It was hot and there was no air conditioner and few entertainments were available.
cicada /sɪˈkɑː.də/ n. 知了
boredom start to haunt me... 无聊的感觉开始困扰我...
One summer afternoon, my cousin Daniel and I were wandering along the river bank wondering what to do to kill this boring summer afternoon. All of a sudden, Daniel got an idea. He told me we should have a competition, which took me by surprise. In that heat and in that kingdom of boredom, what competition could we have, to see who could survive longer standing in the burning sun without drinking any water? He proceeded by explaining that we should each dig a piece of mud, make it into a shape of a bowl, cast it onto the ground upside down and then see whose bowl make the biggest sound. It sounded stupid in the beginning and failed to intrigue me. But when Daniel jumped into the river and did as he explained, I decided to try. It honestly felt awesome to have hands and feet inside the cool mud and water. And the explosion of the mud bowl miraculous excited me.
kill v. 消磨(时间)
take sb. by surprise 让某人感到意外
intrigue /ɪnˈtriːɡ/ v. 使...感兴趣
And the next thing I could remember was we playing and playing and playing and playing and we didn’t even notice the sun had started to set. It was such a fun and nice experience in my memory.
