Julie was sitting in bed late at night playing with her brand-new smartphone. Earlier that week, she had been visited by her children and grandchildren to celebrate her 70th birthday, and had received the phone as a gift from her granddaughter Mary. Julie had been widowed for five years now. Since she lived hours away from the rest of the family, Mary thought the phone would be a good way for them to keep in touch and take up some of her time.

朱莉深夜坐在床上,玩着她的全新智能手机。 那周早些时候,她的孩子和孙子们拜访了她,以庆祝她的70岁生日,并从孙女玛丽那里收到了电话作为礼物。 朱莉已经丧偶五年了。 自从她与家人以外的其他几个小时住在一起以来,玛丽认为电话是他们保持联系并占用一些时间的好方法。

Up until then, Julie had never really been interested in catching up with modern technology, but finally owning her own smartphone made her feel youthful, and she decided to join Facebook since that was what she had noticed all the younger people were doing. However, when making her profile page, she was embarrassed to put up a picture of herself since she thought she looked much too wrinkly and nobody would want to talk to her. To remedy this, she downloaded a picture of a beautiful 20-something year old from Google, posted it under her name, and went to sleep.

直到那时,朱莉从未真正对追赶现代技术感兴趣,但最终拥有自己的智能手机使她感到年轻,她决定加入Facebook,因为这是她注意到所有年轻人所做的事情。但是,在创建个人资料页面时,她很尴尬地贴上自己的照片,因为她认为自己看起来太皱了,没有人愿意和她说话。为了解决这个问题,她从Google下载了一张20多岁的美丽照片,并以她的名字张贴了照片,然后入睡。

The next morning, Julie woke up and enthusiastically logged into Facebook in hopes that she would have one or two new friends. She could not believe her eyes. Her inbox was full of friend requests from dozens and dozens of young handsome men that were complimenting her beauty and wanted to know all about her. Julie decided to accept only the best-looking ones and began chatting with them day and night, never letting them know that they were actually talking to a grandma. The next time Julie met up with Mary, she thanked her so much for the phone and remarked, "I haven't felt so young and pretty in years!" Mary was confused and asked, "Why?" Julie just gave a mischievous smile and changed the topic.

第二天早上,朱莉醒来,热情地登录了Facebook,希望她会有一个或两个新朋友。她简直不敢相信自己的眼睛。她的收件箱里满是来自数十个年轻英俊男人的朋友的请求,这些请求称赞了她的美丽,并想了解她的全部情况。朱莉决定只接受外表最好的人,并开始日夜与他们聊天,从不让他们知道他们实际上正在和奶奶聊天。下次朱莉遇见玛丽时,她非常感谢她的电话,并说:“多年来我还没有这么年轻漂亮!”玛丽很困惑,问:“为什么?”朱莉只是调皮地笑了笑,改变了话题。
