You can ask there.”

We planned to meet here.” The hotel man was 57 . “A man 58 dirty clothes was just here. I thought he was a farmer, and sent him to another hotel a few minutes ago.” The hotel man 59 the vice?鄄president’s room in the other hotel.
“Oh, Mr. Jefferson,” he said, “I’m very sorry I thought you were a farmer. We have a room at our hotel. Please come back.” “No,” said Mr. Jefferson. “If there is no room for a farmer, there’s no room for the vice?鄄president, 60 .”

This is not a diet. It’s a simple way to lose weight. And you don’t even have to give up the food you love or join a gym. You just follow some habits that thin people have. Keep them, and you’ll become thin.

My father was lame(瘸的) and very short. I was very shy to be seen with my father when I was growing up. When we walked together, he used to put his hand on my arm for balance, and people would stop to watch us. So I didn’t like to go out with him. Sometimes my mother left our town to see her sister, and I had to help him instead of my mother. I didn’t say much as we went along. As we started out, he always said, “You can walk fast. And I can keep up with you.”
We usually walk to the subway, by which he went to work. He went to work though he was sick or it was bad weather. He almost never missed a day, and could get to the office on time even if others could not. When snow or ice was on the ground, it was impossible for him to walk even with other person’s help. At such times my sister or I would pull him across the streets on a child’s sleigh(雪橇) to the subway entrance.
When I think of it now, I am surprised how much courage he had to make his way to the office. I never heard my father complain about it. Now he has been gone many years, but I think of him often. I really want to tell him how sorry I feel for it and how deeply I love him.
