17. Always Young

Always Young

My aunt Jennifer is an actress. She must be at least thirty-five years old. In spite of this, she often appears on the stage as a young girl. Jennifer will take part in a new play soon. This time, she will be a girl of seventeen. In the play, she must appear in a bright red dress and long black stockings.
Last year in another play, she had to wear short socks and a bright, orange-coloured dress. If anyone ever asks how old she is, she always answers, ‘My dear, it must be terrible to be grown up!’

Selalu Muda

Bibi saya Jennifer adalah seorang aktris. Dia harus berusia minimal tiga puluh lima tahun. Terlepas dari ini, ia sering muncul di panggung sebagai seorang gadis muda. Jennifer akan mengambil bagian dalam sebuah drama baru segera. Kali ini, dia akan menjadi seorang gadis tujuh belas. Dalam bermain, ia harus muncul dalam gaun merah cerah dan stoking hitam panjang.
Tahun lalu di lain bermain, ia harus memakai kaus kaki pendek dan, gaun berwarna oranye terang. Jika ada yang pernah bertanya berapa umur dia, dia selalu menjawab, ‘Sayangku, itu harus mengerikan untuk dewasa!’
