Мой день

Я обычно просыпаюсь около шести часов утра и сра­зу выбираюсь из кровати. По утрам я, как правило, принимаю душ, а по вечерам ванну. Я готовлю себе очень крепкий кофе и сажусь на кухне с газетами и журналами. Я люблю читать их, мне нравится узна­вать, что радует людей и что их огорчает, что их сер­дит и удивляет. В 8.30 я начинаю приводить дом в порядок, потому что экономка приходит в 9 часов, а я слишком воспитан, чтобы оставлять дом в беспоряд­ке. Я заканчиваю все до того, как она приходит. За­тем я сажусь в машину, и в 9.30 я уже в офисе. Моя секретарша Эмма Томсон также приходит в это вре­мя. Й именно теперь начинается настоящая жизнь. Эмма — очаровательная женщина, очень энергичная и доминантная по характеру. Моя сестра считает, что в прошлой жизни Эмма была сержантом. Она обычно говорит: «Мистер Картер, Вы должны подписать это, согласиться с этим, отказаться от этого и так далее». И если она начинает слишком командовать (to get bossy), я говорю: «Эмма, мы встретимся через час». Мой рабочий день заканчивается в 6 часов вечера. Вечером я могу делать все, что хочу. Иногда я встре­чаюсь с друзьями, хожу в театр, навещаю родителей. Иногда провожу спокойный вечер дома: смотрю те­левизор, читаю книги.

Философия жизни

Жаркий летний день в Древнем Риме. Философ пе­ресекает Тибр в маленькой лодочке. Во время пере­правы он спрашивает у лодочника: «Ты когда-нибудь слышал о философии?» «Нет, — отвечает лодочник, — я никогда об этом не слышал. Что это такое?» «Мне очень тебя жаль, — отвечает ученый человек, — ты потерял четверть своей жизни, потому что это очень интересная наука!» Они плывут уже несколько ми­нут, как философ опять спрашивает лодочника: «А ты слышал об астрономии, когда учился в школе?» «Нет, я закончил школу много лет назад и все забыл. Я ничего не помню», — отвечает лодочник. На это философ опять говорит, что ему очень жаль лодочни­ка, и что тот потерял вторую четверть своей жизни. Проходит несколько минут, и философ опять задает лодочнику вопрос: «А слышал ли ты когда-нибудь об алгебре?» И лодочнику приходится сознаться, что он никогда ничего об этом не слышал. «В этом случае ты потерял третью четверть своей жизни», — говорит ученый. В этот момент лодка налетает на большой ка­мень. Лодочник вскакивает и кричит: «Ты когда-ни­будь учился плавать?» «Нет, — отвечает ученый, — я никогда не изучал плавание». Лодочник грустно объясняет философу, что тот потерял всю свою жизнь, так как лодка тонет.

Мораль: В повседневной жизни практические умения бывают иногда более необходимы, чем знание многих наук.
