翻译理论与实践(4)

浪漫

一个小伙子暗恋着一个女孩。女孩是他的同事,他们在一个办公室工作。小伙子性格内向,不善言辞,他不知道如何向女孩表达他的爱慕之意。写情书罢,小伙子是学理工的,一直搞技术工作,满脑子的图形,就是没有一句有文采的话。至于直截了当告诉女孩说“我爱你”,小伙子更没有那胆量。这样的恋情应该说没有什么希望的了。事实上一年后他们结了婚。有人向小伙子讨教,他说:“我上班第一件事就是为她泡上一杯她喜欢的喝的绿茶。她胃不好,我经常备些胃药放在她桌上。一开始她不知道是我做的这些事情,时间长了就知道了。”我不知道,泡茶送药是否是一种浪漫。浪漫是没有定式的,或许那些实实在在的呵护和关爱才是真正的浪漫。

Romance

A boy secretly loved a girl, who was his colleage working in the same office. An introvert and not good at talking, he didn’t know how to express his love to the girl. A love letter would work well, but he wasn’t able to come up with those ornate words, for he had been a science student and his work had always been technical in nature and his mind was full of graphs and figures. A direct “I love you” was even beyond what he could think of doing. Such love was destined to failure. However, they got married a year later. When asked by someone to disclose the mystery, the boy explained: “The first thing I did in the office everyday was to make a cup of green tea for her, which I knew she enjoyed. She had stomach trouble, so I would often buy some medicine and put it on her desk. At first she didn’t know it was I who did all this. By and by she got to know it. ” I don’t know if this tea-making and medicine-offering can be called “romance”. Romance does not have fixed patterns, but tangible acts of affection and care are perhaps what it really means.
