79. By Air

I used to travel by air a great deal when I was a boy. My parents used to live in South America and I used to fly there from Europe in the holidays, An air hostess would take charge of me and I never had an unpleasant experience. I am used to travelling by air and only on one occasion have I ever felt frightened. After taking off, we were flaying low over the city and slowly gaining height, when the plane suddenly turned round and flew back to the airport. While we were waiting to land, an air hostess told us to keep calm and to get off the plane quietly as soon as it had touched down. Everybody on board was worried and we were curious to find out what had happened. Later we learnt that there was a very important person on board. The police had been told that a bomb had been planted on the plane. After we had landed, the plane was searched thoroughly. Fortunately, nothing was found and five hours later we were able to take off again.
Lewat udara. Aku digunakan untuk bepergian dengan pesawat besar ketika saya masih anak-anak. Orang tua saya dulu tinggal di Amerika Selatan dan saya digunakan untuk terbang ke sana dari Eropa di hari libur, Seorang pramugari akan mengambil alih dari saya dan saya tidak pernah punya pengalaman yang tidak menyenangkan. Aku digunakan untuk bepergian dengan udara dan hanya pada satu kesempatan saya pernah merasa takut. Setelah lepas landas, kami menguliti rendah di atas kota dan perlahan-lahan mendapatkan tinggi, ketika pesawat tiba-tiba berbalik dan terbang kembali ke bandara. Sementara kami menunggu untuk tanah, pramugari mengatakan kepada kita untuk tetap tenang dan untuk turun dari pesawat diam-diam secepat itu telah mendarat. Semua orang di kapal khawatir dan kami penasaran untuk mencari tahu apa yang terjadi. Kemudian kami mengetahui bahwa ada orang yang sangat penting di papan. Polisi telah diberitahu bahwa sebuah bom telah ditanam di pesawat. Setelah kami telah mendarat, pesawat digeledah secara menyeluruh. Untungnya, tidak ada yang ditemukan dan lima jam kemudian kami mampu lepas landas lagi.

78. The Last One

After reading an article entitled “Cigarette Smoking and You Health” I lit a cigarette to calm my nerves. I smoked with concentration and pleasure as I was sure that this would be my last cigarette. For a whole week I did not smoke at all and during this time, my wife suffered terribly. I had all the usual symptoms of someone giving up smoking : a bad temper and an enormous appetite. My friends kept on offering me cigarettes and cigars. They made no effort to hide their amusement whenever I produced a packet of sweets from my pocket. After seven days of this I went to a party. Everybody around me was smoking and I felt extremely uncomfortable. When my old friend Brian urged me to accept a cigarette, it was more than I could bear. I took one guiltily, lit it and smoked with satisfaction. My wife was delighted that things had returned to normal once more. Anyway, as Brian pointed out, it is the easiest thing in the world to give up smoking. He himself has done it lots of time !.
Yang terakhir. Setelah membaca sebuah artikel berjudul “Merokok Rokok dan Anda Kesehatan” Saya menyalakan rokok untuk menenangkan saraf saya. Saya merokok dengan konsentrasi dan kesenangan karena aku yakin bahwa ini akan menjadi rokok terakhir saya. Untuk seluruh minggu saya tidak merokok sama sekali dan selama waktu ini, istri saya sangat menderita. Saya memiliki semua gejala yang biasa seseorang berhenti merokok: temperamen buruk dan nafsu makan besar. Teman-teman saya terus menawarkan saya rokok dan cerutu. Mereka tidak berusaha untuk menyembunyikan kesenangan mereka setiap kali saya menghasilkan paket permen dari saku saya. Setelah tujuh hari ini saya pergi ke pesta. Semua orang di sekitar saya merokok dan saya merasa sangat tidak nyaman. Ketika teman lama saya Brian mendesak saya untuk menerima rokok, itu lebih dari saya tahan. Aku mengambil satu bersalah, menyalakannya dan merokok dengan kepuasan. Istri saya sangat senang bahwa hal-hal telah kembali normal lagi. Bagaimanapun, seperti Brian menunjukkan, itu adalah hal yang termudah di dunia untuk berhenti merokok. Dia sendiri telah melakukannya banyak waktu!.
