51. Reward for Virtue

My friend, Herbert, has always been fat, but things got so bad recently that he decided to go on a diet. He began his diet a week ago. First of all, he wrote out a long list of the foods which were for bidden. The list included most of the things Herbert loves; butter, potatoes, rice, beer, milk, chocolate, and sweets. Yesterday I paid him a visit. I rang the bell and was not surprised to see that Herbert was still as fat as ever. He led me into his room and hurriedly hid a large parcel under desk. It was obvious that he was very embarrassed. When I asked him what he was doing, he smiled guiltily and then put the parcel on the desk. He explained that his diet was so strict that he had to reward himself occasionally. Then he showed me the contents of the parcel. It contained five large bars of chocolate and three bags of sweets !.
Reward untuk Kebajikan. Teman saya, Herbert, selalu lemak, tetapi hal-hal menjadi sangat buruk baru-baru ini bahwa ia memutuskan untuk melakukan diet. Dia mulai diet seminggu yang lalu. Pertama-tama, ia menulis sebuah daftar panjang makanan yang untukdiperintahkan. Daftar tersebut meliputi sebagian besar hal Herbert mencintai; mentega, kentang, beras, bir, susu, cokelat, dan permen. Kemarin saya membayarnya kunjungan. Aku membunyikan bel dan tidak terkejut melihat bahwa Herbert masih sebagai lemak seperti biasa. Dia membawa saya ke kamarnya dan buru-buru menyembunyikan bungkusan besar di bawah meja. Itu jelas bahwa ia sangat malu. Ketika saya bertanya kepadanya apa yang dia lakukan, dia tersenyum dengan rasa bersalah dan kemudian menempatkan paket di meja. Dia menjelaskan bahwa diet sangat ketat bahwa ia harus menghargai dirinya sesekali. Kemudian ia menunjukkan isi paket. Isinya lima bar besar cokelat dan tiga kantong permen!.
