Semyon Perkins had just about stepped into the lift he suddenly recalled that he had resolved that from this day on he would walk up the stairs to his floor flat in order to lose weight. He removed his foot from the lift and faced the stairs. The steepy ascending steps disappeared upwards.
"But why.actually,does it have to be today?" he asked himself.He was tired as it was.He would start tomorrow.
he turned once more to the lift. Then he remembered that he had promised to help out his wife the next day and vacuum the flat. He would be fatigued by physical labour anyway. If he was to start,it should be today .And again he faced the staircase.
"But why actually is it essential for me to walk? I"m not as fat,after all,as my colleague Ivano."He turned to the lift.
"on the other hand,I"m by no means in as good shape at Sidorov,of course."
He faced the stairs.
"But really,is that important? In a man, other qualities are valued. For instance,decisiveness.
And he decisively turned to the lift.
It was out of order.
