M:This book says that in some parts of Africa, men used to think that very fat women were beautiful. Before a woman married the chief,his servants used to keep her in a special house. Then they fed her all through the day and night for weeks before the wedding.

W:Why don’t we go together, Dad?
W:How about this afternoon?
W:Well done! I enjoyed your story. Now I’d like to share with you a strange experience I had a month ago. It may sound funny, but it is true. After a day’s hard work I went to bed earlier than usual. It was about two o’clock in the morning, and...and suddenly I woke up. I heard a noise. I got out of bed and went slowly downstairs. There was a light in the living room. I listened carefully. I could hear two men speaking quietly. I believed two burglars had broken into my house and I was really frightened, so I went back upstairs,and immediately phoned the police from my bedroom. The police arrived quickly. They opened the front door with a special key and went into the living room. You can imagine how embarrassed I was when they came upstairs and told me they had turned the television off for me and everything was all right.
