鬼妈妈的进行曲,不疯魔不成活。

Her mother made her come back inside for dinner and for lunch; and Coraline had to make sure she dressed up warmly before she went out, for it was a very cold summer that year; but go out she did, exploring, every day until the day it rained, when Coraline had to stay inside.

卡萝琳的妈妈叫她回家吃午饭和晚饭,而且她自个必须保证在出门之前穿得有够保暖,因为那年夏天十分阴冷。但卡萝琳依然可以每天出门探险,除了雨天,她只能待在家里。


'What should I do?' asked Coraline.
“我可以做什么?”卡萝琳问道

'Read a book,' said her mother. 'Watch a video. Play with your toys. Go and pester Miss Spink or Miss Forcible, or the crazy old man upstairs.'

“读书! “妈妈回答道,“看影碟,玩玩具,去烦史彬可小姐和福瑟帛小姐或者楼上的怪蜀黎也行!”

'No,' said Coraline. 'I don't want to do those things. I want to explore.'
”不!“卡萝琳说,”我不想做这些事,我想探险!“

'I don't really mind what you do,' said Coraline's mother, 'as long as you don't make a mess.'
”我不管你做什么。“妈妈说,”只要你不捣乱就行。“


Coraline went over to the window and watched the rain come down. It wasn't the kind of rain you could go out in, it was the other kind, the kind that threw itself down from the sky and splashed where it landed. It was rain that meant business, and currently its business was turning the garden into a muddy, wet soup.

卡萝琳跑去窗户边,看着窗外的雨水落下。这并不是那种可以出去淋雨的毛毛雨,而是老天狠狠地朝大地扔水弹,落地后水花四射的那种。这场雨更像是一场交易,眼前的交易就是将花园变成一个泥泞的潮湿的泥巴羹。

Coraline had watched all the videos. She was bored with her toys, and she'd read all her books.

卡萝琳把所有的影碟都看了一遍,她已经玩腻了那些玩具,也读完了所有的书。

She turned on the television. She went from channel to channel to channel, but there was nothing on but men in suits talking about the stock market, and sports programmes. Eventually, she found something to watch: it was the last half of a natural-history programme about something called protective coloration. She watched animals, birds and insects which disguised themselves as leaves or twigs or other animals to escape from things that could hurt them. She enjoyed it, but it ended too soon, and was followed by a programme about a cake factory.

她打开电视,从一个频道调到下一个频道再调到下一个频道,但是除了西装革履的男人讲着股票交易和体育频道就没有别的节目了。最后,她找到了一个可以看的:这已是一个博物学节目的尾声,讲什么保护色,她看着动物、鸟和昆虫用叶子、树枝甚至其它的动物来伪装自己,以逃避敌人。她很喜欢,可惜节目很快就结束了,然后就开始播放一个蛋糕工坊的节目。

It was time to talk to her father.

是时候该找爸爸聊一聊了。
