Mary Williams was a clever young lady. She lived alone and had a very important business job in a big company. She worked very hard in it. She was never absent, she always arrived at her office early and left late, and she often took reports home with her to read. At weekends she seldom went anywhere, and she was always working then too.
Jill Thomas was a friend of Mary's. In fact, she was Mary's best friend. They had gone to the same school, and both of them were clever women, but Jill was married, and she did not want to get a job. “I'm quite happy at home with Len,” she always said. “I don't want to be too busy to have fun.”
Jill and Len liked walking very much, and nearly every weekend they went to the mountains and walked there. They also liked dancing very much, and they often went out in the evening and danced till the early hours of the next morning. And when they had their holidays, they climbed all the mountains one by one and swam and sailed on a lake and danced nearly all the time.
One year Jill said to Mary, “Would you like to have a holiday with us this year, Mary?” Mary was very happy, so Jill and Mary and Len had two weeks together.
Mary enjoyed her holiday, but she was very tired after they had climbed all the mountains and swum every day and danced every night.
The next summer, Jill offered to take Mary on their holiday again.
“Thank you very much,” answered Mary, “but I'm going to be quite honest with you: I'm sorry that I can't come , because I've worked a lot this year and I'm tired. But I don't need a holiday. I need a rest!”
