  • My Friend, the Telephone Operator
1     When I was quite young, my family had one of the first telephones in our neighborhoodSoon I discovered that somewhere inside that wonderful device lived an amazing person — her name was “Information Please” and there was nothing she did not know.My mother could ask her for anybody’s number; when our clock stopped, Information Please gave us the correct time at once.
2     One day while my mother was visiting a neighbor, I hit my finger with a hammer. The pain was terrible and there was no one home to offer sympathy.So I ran for the telephone and said “Information Please” into the mouthpiece. After a moment, a small, clear voice spoke into my ear: “Information.”
3     “I hurt my finger…” I cried into the phone.
4     “Isn’t your mother home?” came the question.
5     “Nobody’s home but me,” I sobbed.
6     “Are you bleeding?”
7     “No,” I replied, “I hit it with the hammer and it hurts.”
8     “Can you open your fridge?” she asked. I said I could. “Then break a little piece of ice and put it on your finger. That will stop the hurt. And don’t cry. You’ll be all right.”
9     After that, I called Information Please for everything. I asked her for help with my lessons. I even called her for comfort because my pet bird died. When I was nine, we moved from Seattle to Boston and I missed my friend deeply. Information Please belonged to the old home, and I never thought of trying the new phone on a small table in the hall.
10     Many years later, on my way to college, my plane landed at Seattle. At the airport, without thinking what I was doing, I dialed my hometown operator and said, “Information Please.”
11     Then I heard again the small, clear voice I knew so well: “Information.”
12     I hadn’t planned this, but I heard myself saying. “Could you tell me please, how to spell the word ‘fix’?”
13     There was a long pause. Then came the softly spoken answer. “I guess,” said she, “that your finger must have gotten better by now.”
14     I laughed. “So it’s really still you,” I said. “I wonder if you have any idea how much you meant to me during all that time.”
15     “I wonder,” she replied, “if you know how much you meant to me. I never had any children, and I used to look forward to your calls.”

  • 电话接线员,我的朋友
  • 1    在我还很小的时候,家里有了所在街区的第一部电话。不久,我就发现那个奇妙的装置里住着个神奇的人——她的名字叫“请接查询台”。她简直无所不晓:妈妈要别人的电话号码会找她;家里的钟坏了,她会立刻给我们准确报时。
  • 2    一天,妈妈去邻居家串门了,我的手指让锤子砸了一下,疼得厉害,但家里没人安慰我。于是我就跑到电话旁,拿起话筒说,“请接查询台。”过了一会儿,一个细小清晰的声音传入了我的耳朵:“请问您要查询什么?”
  • 3    “我把手指弄伤了……”我对着电话哭了起来。
  • 4    “妈妈不在家吗?”电话里的声音问道。
  • 5    “就我一个人在。”我抽泣着。
  • 6    “流血了吗?”
  • 7    “没有,”我回答道,“我的手指让锤子砸到了,很疼。”
  • 8    “你能打开冰箱吗?”她问道。我回答说可以。“那就拿块冰敲碎,敷在手指上,这样就可以止痛了。不要哭,会没事的。”
  • 9    自那以后,凡事我都会打电话给“请接查询台”。功课上有困难我找她,甚至我的宠物小鸟死了,我也打电话给她寻求安慰。我九岁时全家从西雅图搬到了波士顿,我一直都很想念我的朋友。“请接查询台”是属于老家的记忆,我从来都没想到要用新居里小桌上的那部新电话拨打查询台。
  • 10    许多年以后,我去上大学,中途飞机停在了西雅图。在机场逗留的时候,我无意中拨通了老家的电话总机,说道:“请接查询台。”
  • 11    然后我听到了我熟悉的那个细小清晰的声音:“请问您要查询什么?”
  • 12    对此我毫无心理准备,但是我听到自己回答说:“请问‘安装’这个单词怎么写啊?”
  • 13    电话里出现了一段长时间的停顿,然后我听到电话那头一个轻柔的声音回答说,“我猜你的手指现在一定无恙了吧?”
  • 14    我笑了起来。“真的还是你啊,”我说道,“我在想,你知不知道在那一段日子里你对于我来说有多么重要。”
  • 15    “我也在想,你是否知道那个时候你对于我来说有多么重要。我没有小孩,那时一直都盼着你的电话。”她回答说。

September 25, 2012

Dear XXX,

I received your letter yesterday and could hardly contain my joy for the rest of the day. How wonderful it is that you find the new school a pleasant place where the teachers are nice and your classmates friendly!

As for me, I am still busy adapting to the new environment which I find very different from our middle school. The food in the school canteen hardly interests me and one of my roommates, a late sleeper, follows a very awkward and disrupting daily schedule. But the most difficult thing is that I have to live on campus, away from family and old friends. How I wish you were here with me!

Do come and see me if you have any time!
