花费了昨晚一个晚上,又加上今天一清早,除了通常的打扫、洗擦之外,又清洗窗户,清洁衣柜。她的姐姐伊迪丝本身是那么整洁的一位家庭主妇,米尔德里德知道她得把所有的东西打理得井井有条,如果她想让姐姐把一个好的报告带回家乡克里夫兰的亲戚们。

(03m48s)

Spent all last evening and early this morning added, washing windows, cleaning out the closets as well as the usual dusting, and sweeping and scouring. Her sister Edith was such a neat housekeeper herself, Mildred knew she would have to have things in the apple pie order if her sister was to take a good report back to their Cleveland relations.

“啊哟,那就是命运啊!”伊迪丝会以一种长吐一口气的方式说,“一旦孩子们觉得他们长大了,父母就不能指挥他们的孩子们了。”

(19m56s)

“Well, that’s fate,” Edith would say by way of puffing it off, “Parents can’t boss their children anymore once the children think they are grown.”

“米莉,你觉得在纽约生活真值的吗?”伊迪丝突然问道。

“值的?你说的值的是什么意思?我想我挣了一份挺不错的工资。”她不想表述的比姐姐优越,不过她对自己的独立颇感自豪,“我还能存一点钱呢。”

“我的意思是你过着这么艰苦的生活,远离家庭,纽约这么不友好,连好看的树或什么的都没有。我觉得你比两年以前更加神经兮兮的了。”

米尔德里德凝视着姐姐,也许纽约是让她更加神经紧张、做事情更匆匆忙忙。但是她不是与伊迪丝一样高兴和健康吗?

“人们在第三大道这里栽树了。它们确实还挺小,不过明天你就能看到它们。我不认为它是一个多么不友好的城市。”她继续防御着。

“Millie, do you think it’s really worth it to live in New York?” Edith asked suddenly.

“Worth it? How, how do you mean worth it? I suppose I earn fairly good money.” She didn’t mean to sound superior to her sister but she was proud of her independence. “I’m able to save a little, too.”

“I mean in such a hard life you lead and all, being away from the family. New York is so unfriendly, no trees to look at or anything. I think you are more nervous than you were two years ago.”

Mildred stared at her. Maybe New York had made her more nervous, quicker about tings. But wasn’t she as happy and healthy as Edith?

“They’re starting trees right here on Third Avenue. They’re pretty small yet, but tomorrow you can see them. I don’t think it’s such an unfriendly town,” She went on defensively.
