I woke up at eight,feeling drowsy. I brushed my teeth, and I went downstairs. Before going to school, i had breakfast - cookies and milk. I had to walk to school, and it was snowing outside. It was monday, and my first period was science. We had a quiz on periodic table of elements, i thought i did good. Afterwards I had business, it was easy. Finally, lunch was here. I ate a slice of pizza and i was no longer hungry. So then, I had English and French in the afternoon. I enjoyed learning French a lot, so it turned out to be not so boring after all. The bell rang and the school day was finished. I walked home. I finished my homework first, then i played piano for an hour. My mom was preparing dinner while i surfed on the Internet. After dinner, I continued to surf on the Internet as Mom kept on writing her novel. It was 10 o'clock and I took a shower and brushed my teeth, I went to sleep. It was a tiring day!

三、Very Pleased to Meet You
During World War II, a lot of young women in Britain were in the army. Joan Phillips was one of them. She worked in a big camp, and of course met a lot of men, officers and soldiers.
One evening she met Captain Humphreys at a dance. He said to her, "I‘m going abroad tomorrow, but I‘d be very happy if we could write to each other." Joan agreed, and they wrote for several months.
Then his letters stopped, but she received one from another officer, telling her that he had been wounded and was in a certain army hospital in England.
Joan went there and said to the matron, "I‘ve come to visit Captain Humphreys."
"Only relatives are allowed to visit patients here," the matron said.
"Oh, that‘s all right," answered Joan. "I‘m his sister."
"I‘m very pleased to meet you," the matron said, "I‘m his mother!"
