67.  The next day was Saturday and there is not much to do on a Saturday unless Father takes me out somewhere on an outing to the boating lake or to the garden center, but on this Saturday, England were playing Romania at football, which meant that we weren’t going to go on an outing because Father wanted to watch the match on the television. So I decided to do some more detection on my own.
第二天是礼拜六,礼拜六没什么可做的除非老爸带我到泛舟胡或园艺店去(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garden_centre#United_Kingdom),但是这个礼拜六英国和罗马尼亚有场足球赛,老爸想在电视上观看这场比赛,这就意味着我们不能出去郊游了。于是我决定一个再做点侦查。

I decided that I would go and ask some of the other people who lived in our street if they had seen anyone killing Wellington or whether they had seen anything strange happening in the street on Thursday night.
我决定去问问住在这条街上的其他人有没有看见过谁杀了韦灵顿,或是在礼拜四晚上看见街上发生过什么奇怪的事情。

Talking to strangers is not something I usually do. I don’t like talking to strangers. This is not because of Stranger Danger, which they tell us about at school, which is where a strange man offers you sweets or a ride in his car because he wants to do sex with you. I am not worried about that. If a strange man touched me I would hit him, and I can hit people very hard. For example, when I punched Sarah because she had pulled my hair, I knocked her unconscious and she had concussion and they had to take her to the Accident and Emergency Department at the hospital.
通常我不会和陌生人说话。我并不喜欢和陌生人说话。这倒不是来自陌生人的危险,那种他们在学校和我们说话,给我们糖,让我们搭他的车,只是因为他想和你上床。这我到不担心。如果有奇怪的男人碰我,我就会打他,而且我打人很在行。比如,我因为莎拉扯了我的头发就给了她一拳,我把她打晕了,后来把她送到急诊室才恢复过来。

And also I always have my Swiss Army knife in my pocket and it has a saw blade which could cut a man’s fingers off.
而且我包里也一直放着瑞士军刀,刀锯可以把人的手指切断。

I don’t like strangers because I don’t like people I have never met before. They are hard to understand. It is like being in France, which is where we went on holiday sometimes when Mother was alive, to camp. And I hated it because if you went into a shop or a restaurant or on a beach you couldn’t understand what anyone was saying, which was frightening.
我不喜欢陌生人是因为我不喜欢以前从未遇见过的人。很难去了解他们。就像在法国,妈妈还在世的时候我们有时候会到那里去度假,去露营。但我觉得很讨厌,因为如果你去一家商店、餐厅或是在沙滩上时你完全不知道其他人在说什么,这是很可怕的。
