Chapter Three Washing Up

第三章  洗漱

(1)

Stuart was an early riser: he was almost always the first person up in the morning. 

斯图亚特是个喜欢早起的人,几乎每天早晨都第一个起床。

He liked the feeling of being the first one stirring; he enjoyed the quiet rooms with the books standing still on the shelves, the pale light coming in through the windows, and the fresh smell of day. 

他喜欢第一个在屋子里走动的感觉,喜欢书本静静地插在书架上的安静的房间,喜欢窗子里透进的黯淡光线和空气新鲜的味道。

In winter time it would be quite dark when he climbed from his bed made out of the cigarette box, and he sometimes shivered with cold as he stood in his night gown doing his exercises. 

冬天,当他从用烟盒做的床上爬出时,天还很黑,有时他穿着睡衣站着做操会冷得发抖。

(Stuart touched his toes ten times every morning to keep himself in good condition. He had seen his brother George do it, and George had explained that it kept the stomach muscles firm and was a fine abdominal thing to do.)

(斯图亚特为了让自己身体状况保持良好,每天早晨都要弯腰摸十次脚指头。他曾看到哥哥乔治这么做,而且乔治解释说那样做会使腹肌变得结实,是个锻炼腹部的好方法。)

After exercising, Stuart would slip on his handsome wool wrapper, tie the cord tightly around his waist, and start for the bathroom, creeping silently through the long dark hall past his mother's and father's room, past the hall closet where the carpet sweeper was kept, past George's room, and along by the head of the stairs till he got to the bathroom.

锻炼完,斯图亚特便迅速穿上他那帅气的羊毛衫,把一根绳子系在腰间,出发去浴室。他静静地穿过又长又暗的走廊,爬过父母的卧室,接着经过放地毯除尘器的那个套间,以及乔治的卧室,然后走到楼梯尽头,进入浴室。
Of course, the bathroom would be dark, too, but Stuart's father had thoughtfully tied a long string to the pull-chain of the light. 

当然,浴室里也很黑,不过斯图亚特的父亲已经在灯绳上接了一根长绳子。

The string reached clear to the floor. By grasping it as high up as he could and throwing his whole weight on it, Stuart was able to turn on the light. 

这根绳子一直下垂就要拖到地上只要斯图亚特尽力站高拉住它,再把全身的重量压在绳子上面,就能把灯打开。

Swinging on the string this way, with his long bathrobe trailing around his ankles, he looked like a little old friar pulling the bell rope in an abbey.
他穿着拖至脚踝的长浴衣在灯绳上用力摇摆的样子,看上去就像一个在大修道院里拉着钟绳的小老修道士
