STUART: I'm glad I brought my jacket on this trip.
SHARON: Yes, I didn't know Washington, DC got so cold in winter.
STUART: What would you like to do today?
SHARON: I really think we should take a tour of the White House.
STUART: I thought we could go to some of the museums.Don't you want to see the museums?
SHARON: Of course. But today I feel like seeing the White House.We should see it first, because it's the most famous historical building here.
STUART: I don't agree. I think the Capitol building is the most famous.But okay. If you want to see the White House, we'll go see it.I'm just afraid it will be boring.
SHARON: Boring? How can it be boring? It sounds very interesting to me.
STUART: But it's the White House. The president and his family live there.They won't let us see most of it. Probably we can only see a couple of rooms.
SHARON: No, that's not true.The White House is very big. And there are a lot of historical exhibits there.The tour will take us through many different rooms. I read about it in the guide.
STUART: Hmm. If that's true, then the security there must be very good.Because it's strange to think they will let people walk around in the White House.
SHARON: I'm sure the security is very tight.Probably they will make us walk through metal detectors like at the airport.
STUART: So I can't take my gun then.
SHARON: Don't always joke like that! You don't have a gun.
STUART: Yes, it's true I don't.
SHARON: You shouldn't say things like that. You could get arrested!
STUART: What? Do you think someone will arrest me for making a joke?Someone will arrest me here at the breakfast table?
SHARON: No. But if you say something like that in the White House,they may take it seriously. Sometimes I think you joke too much.
STUART: I'll be careful. Don't worry. I don't want to get arrested by the FBI.But how long does the White House tour last?
SHARON: I'm not sure. I think it lasts about one hour.
STUART: Alright. We should take a taxi over there right after breakfast.
SHARON: First I want to look in the travel guide.Maybe they don't have tours in the morning.
STUART: That's a good idea. Do you want some more coffee?
SHARON: No, I'm fine.

史都尔:还好这趟行程我有带夹克来。
雪伦:是啊,我不知道华盛顿特区的冬天这么冷。
史都尔:今天想做什么?
雪伦:我真的觉得应该去参观白宫。
史都尔:我觉得可以去参观博物馆。你不想去吗?
雪伦:当然想啊,但是今天我想去白宫。我们应该先去那里,因为它是这里最有名的历史建筑。
史都尔:我不这么认为,美国国会大厦才是最有名的。不过没关系,如果你想去白宫,那就去吧。我只是怕会很无聊。
雪伦:无聊?怎么会呢?我觉得很有趣啊。
史都尔:白宫是总统和他的家人住的地方。他们很多地方不会让人参观的,或许只能参观几间展览室而已。
雪伦:不是这样。白宫很大,有很多历史文物。导游人员会带我们参观各个展览室,旅游指南上有说到。
史都尔:如果是这样,那么保安工作要做得非常好才行。因为随便让人在白宫走动是很奇怪的。
雪伦:我相信保安工作一定很严谨,可能像机场那样必须通过侦测器。
史都尔:那么我就不能带枪啰!
雪伦:别老是开这种玩笑,你根本没有枪。
史都尔:我的确没有。
雪伦:你不应该说这种话,会被抓去的。
史都尔:什么?会有人因为我开玩笑就逮捕我?会有人在这餐桌上就将我逮捕吗?
雪伦:不是,不过如果你在白宫说那样的话,他们就会当真。有时候你玩笑开得太过火了。
史都尔:我会小心的,别担心,我并不想被联邦调查局的人逮捕。不过参观白宫要多久?
雪伦:我不确定,我想大概一小时。
史都尔:好的,我们吃完早餐就搭出租车去。
雪伦:我先看看旅游指南。很可能早上不开放参观。
史都尔:那倒是。你还要咖啡吗?
雪伦:不了,这样就够了。
