Georges' Marvellous Medicine: Cabbage, not chocolate
Автор: Roald Dahl
Первоисточник: Фотокулинар


"But how do I stop myself growing?" George asked her.
"Eat less chocolate," Grandma said.
"Does chocolate make you grow?"
"It makes you grow the wrong way," she snapped. "Up instead of down."
Grandma sipped some tea but never took her eyes from the little boy who stood before her. "Never grow up," she said. "Always down."
"Yes, Grandma."
"And stop eating chocolate. Eat cabbage instead."
"Cabbage! Oh no, I don't like cabbage," George said.
"It's not what you like or what you don't like," Grandma snapped. "It's what's good for you that counts. From now on, you must eat cabbage three times a day. Mountains of cabbage! And if it's got caterpillars in it, so much the better!"
"Owch," George said.
"Caterpillars give you brains," the old woman said.
"Mummy washes them down the sink," George said.
"Mummy's as stupid as you are," Grandma said.
"Cabbage doesn't taste of anything without a few boiled caterpillars in it. Slugs, too."
"Not slugs!" George cried out. "I couldn't eat slugs!"
"Whenever I see a live slug on a piece of lettuce," Grandma said, "I gobble it up quick before it crawls away. Delicious."
