I’ll tell you what I did

Saya sedang menyunting dan menemukan potongan paragraf berikut:

“This may sound like a stupid question, but how do you determine the kind of person you want to be?” asked Matt.

I’ll tell you what I did. About ten years ago, I wrote my own obituary,” said Jack with a smile.

Penerjemah mengalihbahasakannya menjadi:

“Aku akan menceritakan pengalamanku padamu,” kata Jack sambil tersenyum. “Sekitar sepuluh tahun yang lalu, aku menulis sendiri obituariumku.”

Agar lebih luwes, mengingat percakapan ini berlangsung antara dua orang yang hubungannya cukup akrab, saya menggantinya menjadi:

Nah, inilah yang dulu kulakukan,” kata Jack sambil tersenyum. “Sekitar sepuluh tahun yang lalu, aku menulis sendiri obituariumku.”
