Mr Jackson is having a meeting. He looks at the clock on the wall. It is 7:45. “The last bus left fifteen minutes ago,” he thinks. “I’ll have to stay in a hotel tonight.”
Mr Jackson always drives home after work. He lives outside the city. There is something wrong with his car, so today he has to take a bus to his office.
The meeting is over. When he goes out of the warm office, it begins to snow. He wants to have some warm food and soup first. Most restaurants are full of people and he has to go into a small one. The waiter shows(出示) him the menu(菜单).
“Some hot soup, please,” says Mr Jackson.
Later, the waiter brings the soup to him. When Mr Jackson is drinking, he finds something in it. “Come here, boy,” he says. “Look, there is a hair in my soup!”
The waiter says, “it’s usually a fly(苍蝇) in the soup, I remember.”

Most children like watching TV. It’s very interesting. By watching TV, they can learn a lot and know many things about their country and the world. Of course, they can also learn over the radio(收音机). But they can learn better and more easily over the TV. Why? Because they can hear and see at the same time, while they can’t see anything over the radio.
