眉毛刮掉以后

(By Ariel Subrahmanyam)

 

It was evening and time for my little sister and me to take our showers and get ready for bed. As I passed the mirror in the bathroom, there it was - a wild hair right in the middle of my forehead, threatening to be the beginning of the third eyebrow. I went into the shower trying to think of a solution, and then I spotted a razor. I took it and started trying to shave off the savage hair.

某一天晚上,我和妹妹是时间去洗个澡,准备上床睡觉了。当我从浴室的镜子前走过时,我看到了它——我前额正中间的那绺乱发,似乎要长成我的第三条眉毛了。我一边洗澡,一边努力想着解决办法,然后我看见了剃刀。我拿起它,开始试着把那绺乱发剃掉。

Usually I would trust my mom's advice about what to do in this sort of situation, but this was just too complicated for her -or so I thought. Well, while I was shaving that hair off, the razor slipped, and I ended up shaving off half my eyebrow! Then I did what any girl would do in this situation -I tried to even them out . When I was finished, I looked in the mirror. It was a disaster! I tried to figure out if there was any way to fix this mess. Thankfully, I found a way to hide my mistake. I put my bangs over my eyebrows. It worked perfectly!

通常,我都会听从妈妈关于如何处理这类问题的建议,但这个问题对她来说太复杂了——或者我是这样认为的。然而就在我剃那绺头发的时候,剃刀一滑,结果我的半条眉毛被剃掉了!然后,我做了任何一个女孩在这种情况下都会做的事——我试图将两边的眉毛修成一样的。弄完后,我照了照镜子,却发现惨不忍睹!我努力想找个法子搞定这一团糟。谢天谢地,我找到了一个办法来掩饰这个失误。我用前额的刘海遮住了眉毛。效果好极了!

Just then my parents called me to come and say good night. Nobody noticed my eyebrows, but they did notice my little sister's eyebrows! It turned out that while I was fighting the stray hair, she had found another razor in the drawer and began copying me. Now her eyebrows were completely missing! My parents were very confused until they finally noticed that half my eyebrows were gone as well . After a lot of questioning, I broke down and confessed to what had happened.

就在那时,父母喊我去和他们道晚安。谁都没有注意到我的眉毛,但他们却都注意到了妹妹的眉毛!原来,就在我处理那绺散乱的头发时,妹妹在抽屉里又找了把剃刀,开始照着我的样子做。现在,她的眉毛完全没了!父母非常困惑,直到他们最终发现我的一半眉毛也不见了。经过一番追问,我哭了,坦承了发生的一切。

I thought that my parents would be mad at me until my mom took me aside to tell me that when she was a preteen, she had done a similar thing. In her case, it was her underarms . While away at camp on a swimming day, she was extremely embarrassed because she had some long hairs in her armpits . My grandma, her mom, had told her she was too young to shave yet. But she went against her mom's wishes and borrowed her friend's razor and shaved her armpits. Then she wrote her mom a confession letter telling her that she had done a terrible thing and that she was very sorry. At the very end of this long two-page letter, she finally told her mom what she had done. As my grandma read through the letter, she was so worried about this terrible thing that her daughter had done that by the end of the letter she laughed, because she was just so relieved to find out about what had actually happened. My grandmother totally understood how my mom had felt, just like my mom now understood me.

我以为父母会生我的气,但妈妈却把我带到一边,告诉我她在十一二岁时也做过类似的事情。只不过她那次是发生在腋下。在外出露营游泳的时候,她觉得非常难为情,因为她的腋毛太长了。她的妈妈,也就是我的外婆曾告诉过她,她还没到该刮腋毛的年龄。但她违背外婆的意愿,借了朋友的一把剃刀,把自己的腋毛刮掉了。然后,她给外婆写了一封忏悔信,说自己做了一件很可怕的事,感到非常抱歉。在那封长达两页的信的末尾,她才最终告诉外婆自己做了什么。外婆读那封信时,一直在担心自己女儿所做的那件可怕的事情,但读到信的结尾时,她笑了。因为她终于知道到底发生了什么,长长地松了一口气。外婆完全理解妈妈那时的感受,就像妈妈现在理解我一样。

This ended up bringing my mom and me even closer together. I still wouldn't ever recommend trying to shave your eyebrows. I suggest that you find a different way to get closer to your mom!

这件事让我和妈妈变得更亲密了。我仍然无论何时都不会赞成你试着刮掉自己的眉毛。建议你另找一个方法来拉近你和妈妈之间的距离!

As for my little sister, it took a long time for her eyebrows to grow back in. From then on, I've learned to be a better example to her because she still copies everything I do!

至于我的小妹妹,过了很长一段时间她的眉毛才长回原样。从那时起,我学会了为她树立一个更好的榜样,因为她仍然会模仿我做的一切!
