Метонимия в тексте (Alan's Shop)
Alan Smith's father bought him a small shop, and Alan sold milk, butter, cheese, eggs and other things in it.
His shop was in a small town. Alan's shop was open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and on Sunday morning, but it was shut on Sunday afternoon and on Monday. A fat woman came into Alan's shop on Saturday.
She bought some eggs and some butter, and then she said to Alan,
“Your eggs and your butter are dear today.
Why are Saturday and Sunday dearer than Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday?”
Then Alan smiled and said,
“My food is not dearer on Saturday and Sunday!
It is cheaper on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday!”
