It mas two weeks before Christmas. and Mrs Smith was very busy. She bought a lot of Christmas cards to send to her friends and to her husband's friends, and put them on the table in the living-room. Then, when her husband came home from work, she said to him, "Here are the Christmas cards for our friends, and here are some stamps, a pen and our book of addresses.
WiII you please write the cards while I am cooking the dinner?"
Mr Smith did not say anything , but walked out of the Iiving-room and went to his studys. Mrs Smith was very angry with hims , but did not say anything either.
Then a minute later he came back with a box full of Christmas cards. All of them had addresses and stamps on them.
"These are from last year," he said, "I forgot to post them. "
