English term or phrase:You’re a curmudgeon, aren’t you?
Testo teatrale americano (per la messa in scena e non per la pubblicazione). Casa di riposo per anziani. Dialogo tra due ospiti maschi.
A: I like rivers. They’re mysterious. You don’t know where they’re coming from. You don’t know where they’re going to. I’m seeing the river as a metaphor for life. Constantly moving. Never-ending.
B: But life does end. And so does the river.
A: You’re a curmudgeon, aren’t you?
B: I’m a realist.
A: Right. A curmudgeon.
La mia proposta:
A: Ma la vita sì che finisce. E anche il fiume.
B: Sei un burbero, lo sai?
