Yesterday, after I got home from work at midnight
12 oíclock, I was really tired, so I
went to sleep. When I woke up this morning, it was Halloween. I would take vacation
for a week since today. I looked out of window. It is a beautiful day! I checked the
answer machine. My girlfriend had left me a message, ěthis is Annie, and I have two
tickets for Titanic. Itís at 9:30 tomorrow morning. I will wait for you at Metreon
Theater. Be there!î I looked at the clock on the wall, itís already a quarter to nine. I was
happy; I thought that Iíd have a great time. So I left home for the theater. I bought
candy, corn and some flowers on my way. When I got there, people were coming out
from the movie, and I did not see Annie at all. Why? I went home in disappointment.
When I looked at the clock again, it still said a quarter to nine. Oh, the clock stopped!
I decided that I should call her, but my English
was not good, so I wrote down my
words on a paper first. ěDear, Iím sorry to let you wait for a long time. Donít be mad!
Do you want to have lunch with me? Iíll wait for you at the restaurant that we always go
Before I called her, I checked the answer machine
again. It was Annie again, ěDear Iím
sorry to let you wait for a long time. Donít be mad! Do you want have lunch with me?
Iíll wait for you at the restaurant that we always go to.î I was surprised! How did she
know my line? ěOh, I see, today is Halloween!î
I saw her sitting at the table when I got to the
restaurant. ě Dear, Iím sorry. I had to take
subway to go to the theatre; the Muni was broken, so I was stuck for an hour. I didnít
go to the movie. Iím sorry!í she said.
ěHa ha ha ! Me too. My clock
