又哭又笑:Blue Shoes and Happiness 完



HBO/BBC 合拍的电视剧 No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency 剧照,最上面的是 "traditionally built" Mma Ramotswe,下左一是瘦高带眼镜的 Mma Makutsi.

这本是昨天看完的,看到后面忍不住咕咕傻笑,Alexander McCall Smith 太搞了。举个例子:

Mma Makutsi looked across at Mma Ramotswe. "You'd never go on a diet, would you?" The question was asked casually, but Mma Makutsi knew immediately that she had guessed correctly. Mma Ramotswe looked up sharply, with exactly that look of irritation mixed with self-pity that people in the early stages of a diet manifest.


Mma Makutsi 看上了一双蓝色的很时髦的鞋子,忍不住非要买下来而后快。但是 Mma Ramotswe 觉得很不明智。

"And the toes!" said Mma Makutsi. "Look at how pointed those toes are. Look at them." As she herself looked, she let out a whistle of admiration.

"But nobody is that shape," said Mma Ramotswe. "I have never met anybody with pointed feet. If your feet were pointed like that, then you would have only one toe... Perhaps those are shoes for one-toed people. Perhaps they are specialist shoes."

She laughed at her own comment, but Mma Makutsi did not.
