童年消失之前要做的 50 件事

 

英国有个叫 The National Trust 的组织 (英国国家自然名胜信托组织)。我们今年是会员,一年缴不到 100 英镑,就可以去参观许多庄园、园林、城堡等,了解英国历史,品味四季变化。

最近,The National Trust 列出了一份清单,叫 50 things to do before you are 11 ¾ -- 11 岁又9个月大之前,你必须做的事。

为什么不说 11 岁,12岁,而要刻意说是 11 岁又  4  分之 3 年 (9 个月) 呢?

这个标题,一看就知道是模仿英国作家 Sue Townsend 的名著标题,The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13¾ (13 岁又 9 个月大的少年 Adrian Mole 的秘密日记)。这本书的中文译名是少年阿莫的秘密日记。Adrian Mole 系列作品,在英国很受欢迎。

回归正传,The National Trust 说孩子在 11 岁 9 个月大前,也就是在童年消失之前,该做的 50 件事情,是哪些呢? 我不译了,你们自己看看吧!

    1. 这不过是某些人的意见,参考一下,笑一笑就好了,没必要照单全收。有的意见我也不是太同意的。
