Chapter Three Washing Up

第三章  洗漱

(3)

Stuart, after examining this mess, turned to his father again. 

斯图亚特仔细地看了看这些工具后,又来找他的父亲。

"Maybe I could pound the faucet with something and turn it on that way," he said.

“或许我可以用什么东西把水龙头打开,”他说。
So Stuart's father provided him with a very small, light hammer made of wood; and Stuart found that by swinging it three times around his head and letting it come down with a crash against the handle of the faucet, he could start a thin stream of water flowing--enough to brush his teeth in, anyway, and moisten his washcloth. 

于是斯图亚特的父亲就给他找来一把很小很轻的木锤子;斯图亚特发现,只要把它绕着他的头挥舞三次,击向水龙头开关,就能让细细的水流出来——这些水足够让他刷牙、浸湿毛巾。

So every morning, after climbing to the basin, he would seize his hammer and pound the faucet, and the other members of the household, dozing in their beds, would hear the bright sharp plink plink plink of Stuart's hammer, like a faraway blacksmith, telling them that day had come and that Stuart was trying to brush his teeth.

所以每天早晨,他爬上洗脸池后就抓住他的锤子去击打水龙头,而此时还没有完全睡醒的家里其他人就会从床上听到斯图亚特的锤子发出“当当当”的清脆的敲击声,就像是远处有铁匠在打铁一样,这也告诉了他们白天已经来了,斯图亚特正在刷牙呢。

One fine morning in the month of May when Stuart was three years old, he arose early as was his custom, washed and dressed himself, took his hat and cane, and went downstairs into the living room to see what was doing. 

五月的一个晴朗的早晨,三岁大的斯图亚特又像往常一样早早地起床,洗漱、穿衣、戴好帽子、拿着手杖,然后跑到楼下的起居室里看别人在干什么。

Nobody was around but Snowbell, the white cat belonging to Mrs. Little. 

当时除了雪球以外没人在场——雪球是利特尔夫人养的一只白猫。

Snowbell was another early riser, and this morning he was lying on the rug in the middle of the room, thinking about the days when he was just a kitten. 

雪球也喜欢早起,而且这天早上他正躺在房间中央的地毯上,回想着自己小时候的那些日子。
"Good morning," said Stuart.

“早上好。”斯图亚特说。
"Hello," replied Snowbell, sharply. "You're up early, aren't you?" 

“你好。”雪球尖声回答道,“你起得挺早,不是吗?”
Stuart looked at his watch.
斯图亚特看了看他的手表。
