Our Town.


Прочитала тут пьесу Thornton Wilder – OUR TOWN. На русском она называется «Наш городок». Рекомендую . Вот что запало :   (значит так, George женится на дочери MR . WEBB и просит у него совета)   MR. WEBB George, I was thinking the other night of some advice my father gave me when I got married.Charles, he said, Charles, start out early showing who’s boss, he said.Best thing to do is to give an order, even if don’t make sense; just so she’ll learn to obey.And he said: if anything about your wife irritates you –her conversation, or anything – just get up and leave the house. That’ll make it clear to her, he said. And, oh, yes! He said never, never let your wife know how much money you have, NEVER.   GEORGE Well, Mr. Webb… I don’t think I could…   MR. WEBB So I took the opposite of my father’s advice and I’ve been happy ever since.And let that be a lesson to you, George – never to ask advice on personal matters.   Вот. Все проглотили? И точка.
