The Red Bowl红玻璃果盘

作者:stephen    文章来源:方向标英语网    点击数:    更新时间:2010-4-1 【我来说两句

It would be fun, Alex thought, to give Cora something for no reason at all.
阿烈克心里想,平白无故送点什么给柯拉一定很好玩。
He had not planned to give his wife a present, but when he saw the red glass fruit bowl, he could not resist it. It
 came near being the prettiest bowl he had ever seen.
他原本没有打算要送她礼物,但当他看到那个红色玻璃制水果盆钵,他抵不住它的诱惑了,那几乎是他所见过最漂亮的一只果盆。
From time to time he bought Cora such a gift. She went in for beautiful dishes. He himself didn't know the first
 thing about them.
他时常会买这类的礼品送给柯拉。她喜欢美丽的碗碟。他自己对碗碟却毫无了解。
"I'll take this one," Alex told the clerk.
「我买这一个,」阿烈克告诉店员说。
"Yes, sir. Would you like the individual fruit dishes that go with the bowl?"
「好,先生。要不要那些个别的水果盘来搭配这个果盆?」
Before he answered, Alex looked to see if he had enough money, just to be on the safe side.
为了安全起见,他回答以前先看看钱够不够。
As a rule he didn't carry much with him.
通常,他身边不带很多钱。
"Not today, thank you. Perhaps later."
「今天不买,谢谢你。也许改天再来。」
"Very good, sir. We keep them on hand regularly. Do you want this wrapped as a gift?"
「好的,先生。我们经常准备有这类货品。要不要把这一个当礼物包装?」
"Yes, please."
「是的。」
"What is the occasion? A birthday, perhaps?"
「是什么场合?或许是生日吧?」
"No, no special occasion."
「不是,没什么特别日子。」
That wasn't exactly true. Cora always made it an occasion when Alex brought her a gift.
那倒不见得是真的。每当阿烈克买礼物给她,柯拉总是把它看成是一个特别的日子。
In a few minutes he was on his way home.
过了几分钟,他就回家去了。
They lived in a modest little house, and although it was rather old-fashioned, it was in a nice section of the city.
他们住在一间简陋的小房子,房子虽是相当旧式的,可是位于城里很好的地段。
It wasn't too far from the office where Alex worked.
距离阿烈克办公地点并不太远。
There was a bus stop at the corner, and two blocks away was a big shopping center where Cora could get almost
 anything she needed.
转角有一个公共汽车站牌,而且两条街远便有一个大型购物中心,柯拉可以到那里买她想买的任何东西。
In other words, it was in an excellent location.
换句话说,那是非常不错的地点。
