M:Is 12:40 any good?
W:Yes, I’ll write down the time.
M:This is Mr.Jones. My heater is not working and the temperature is going to get down below freezing. Could you come over and fix it?
W:This is our busiest time of the year but I’ll speak to one of our men about getting over there sometime today.
W:What is all the noise about?
M:They are discussing whether they should replace Miss Smith, the music teacher.
M:Because she is not responsible enough.
W:What do you usually do in the evening?
M:I usually study. But if there’s a new film on TV, I will watch it. After watching TV I’ll do my homework.
W:Oh, look! Joni Mitchell is in town.
M:Who’s that? I’ve never heard of her.
W:What? She’s one of the greatest folk singers in the world!
M: What happened?
W:Well, my husband left for work at 7:30. A few minutes later,somebody broke into the house. I guess he thought the house was empty.
M:Where were you?
W:I was still in bed. I heard something in the living room, so I went downstairs.And there was this man, putting money into his briefcase. I guess I surprised him. He ran out of the front door and I ran after him.
M:It’s good he didn’t have a gun.
W:You said it. Well, he fell down the steps and broke his leg. That’s when I called you.
M:We’ve been looking for this man. In the past two weeks, he has broken into 20 homes in this area.
W:Today’s November 15th. It’s almost time for Thanksgiving.
M:When is Thanksgiving Day?
W:It’s celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. What are your plans for it?
M:I have no idea yet. What about you?
W:The same as usual. My aunts and uncles and cousins come to our house for dinner.
M:Oh, your family get together. What do you usually do?
W:We usually have a big meal. My mother cooks turkey. But I prepare the vegetables. My aunts usually bring the pies. The women cook the meal,and the men wash the dishes.
M:Really? In my family, when we get together the kids wash the dishes. The whole thing is a lot of work.
W:Yes, but I like Thanksgiving. I was out of the country last year, and really missed it. That’s one time in the year when families get together. John, if you haven’t got any plans, why don’t you come to my house to spend the holiday with us?

W:I live in a big old house. At night I can sometimes hear strange noises. Last Saturday I got home late. I went upstairs, washed and went to bed. My bedroom was very cold and it took me about an hour to get to sleep. Suddenly I awoke. The room was in darkness, and I could hear a sound which seemed to come from the window. I lay quite still and listened. Then I heard it again: “Scratch,scratch... scratch,scratch.” It came from the waste paper basket. I turned on the light beside my bed and the noise stopped at once. I climbed out,trembling and went over to the waste paper basket. A piece of paper near the top moved ever so slightly. Then I saw a tiny grey face and two little eyes staring up into mine. It was a baby mouse. What s hould I do? He just sat there looking at me, as confused as I was.Carefully I picked up the basket, and carried it to the door. Then I opened the door and went back to bed. In the next morning he went away.
