|English term or phrase: He was unpopular with his schoolmates, as a large, ungainly boy|
|He was unpopular with his schoolmates, as a large, ungainly boy with inert habits and an unfortunate fluency in devising apt but acid nicknames is certain to be. His own, which annoyed him, was Grey Crow...untidy, inclined to flop about, slovenly in both appearance and dress, with hands and face always in need of washing and with nails showing signs of mourning, he made no deep impression on his fellows, and such impression as he did make was generally unfavourable. Any forecast of distinction that might have been made about him then would probably have been derided. His mother's assertion that he was 'a wonderful boy' was, no doubt, regarded as the nonsense of a fond mamma.|
Nu se bucura de popularitate printre colegii sai, asa cum era, un baiat masiv, urat
Nu se bucura de popularitate printre colegii sai, asa cum era, un baiat masiv, urat, cu deprinderi lipsite de vlaga si avand o nefericita usurinta in nascocirea de porecle potrivite, dar cu siguranta usturatoare. Porecla lui, care-l necajea, era Cioara Cenusie...dezordonat, tot dand din brate,neingrijit si la infatisare si ca imbracaminte, cu fata si mainile vesnic nespalate si cu unghiile indoliate, nu facea cine stie ce impresie colegilor si atata cat facea, era in genere nefavorabila. Orice previziune a distinctiei care s-ar fi facut atunci in legatura cu el, ar fi fost luata in ras, probabil. Afirmatia mamei sale cum ca era un 'baiat minunat', a fost privita, fara nici o indoiala, ca o naivitate de mama iubitoare.
