Why was She Angry?

A young man was in love with a beautiful girl. One day when they were working in the park near the girl's house, she said to him, "Tomorrow is my birthday, will you come and have dinner with me?"

"Of course, I shall," said the young man, "and I'll send you red roses, one rose for each year of your life."

The same evening the young man went to a florist's. As the girl was twenty years old, he paid for twenty roses and asked the florist to send them to the girl's house the next day.

He left her address and a letter full of love.

The florist knew the young man very well because he often bought flowers in his shop. The florist thought, "The young man is a good customer, my price for the roses is too high, I'll send thirty roses instead of twenty.". And he did so. In the afternoon when the young man came to see his girlfriend, she didn't want to speak to him. He was very unhappy and went back home. But he never knew why she was so angry with him.

As Cool as Cucumber

In 19611 was spending my summer holidays in Oxford. It was 15 years since 1 had last been there and I was dying to find out how the English way of life had changed since the end of the war.

It was with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation of an Oxford professor to go and see him at his house just outside the town.

Knowing how curious I was, he showed me into his kitchen, bathroom, lounge, sitting-room, dining-room, and study, where there was one of the biggest collections of books I had ever seen. Next we took a walk round the garden and then we went upstairs.

He showed me into his bedroom, running water and electric heater inclusive, and to other bedrooms intended for casual visitors.

- And that's the door to my wife's bedroom - he said - walk right in.

I did. What I saw there made me take a step back, but it was too late... The professor had followed me and presently he was looking at his wife in the arms of a bullnecked fellow... About 30 seconds passed and then he said -

- This is my wife, and mis is Mr. Nipper, a friend of the family.

As I was shaking hands with the professor's wife I kept looking at my host. He was as cool as cucumber, though a trifle pale...

Next the professor and I went downstairs to the sitting-room, and as I watched him fill the glasses, I could not help thinking about the chap upstairs,

- But what about Mr. Nipper? -1 burst out at last. The professor raised his glass and said icily -

- My dear fellow, Mr. Nipper doesn't drink...

English Meals

Frankly we, the British, are often criticised for the foodwe have, our cuisinedoesn't enjoy the best of reputations in the world.

I, for one,think that food is not so important. The main problem is not to eat too much to keep fit.

Being Miss England, certainly, means being slim. I have to be on a slimming diet.Though "have to " is not the right word.

I enjoy my diet. My mottois: "We don't live to eat, we eat to live."

I believe a lot of people in this country are constantly overeating.Most of them have four good mealsa day.

And the famous English breakfast! It is often called a cooked breakfast or a big breakfast which it really is.

Can you fancy eating at a time porridgeor cornflakesor some other kind of cereal, baconor bam, eggs, toasts, rolls, jamor marmaladeand tea or coffee to finish with? It's too much of a good thing, isn't it? I prefer continental breakfast, that is just a cup of coffee and a roll. Now many people in Britain have the same specially on weekdays when they are hurrying to their work.

The English day-time meal is called lunch and it usually consists of two courses: a meat or a fish dish, vegetablesand dessert.Some people though don't eat much at lunch, they may just have a snackin a snack-baror a cafe.

Many books on Britain write about the famous 5 o'clock tea, saying that the British always have tea at this time. I should say in reality not many people can follow the tradition as they are busy at work or elsewhere. So they have to adjusttheir tea-time to their daily schedule.

We, the. Britons, are great tea-drinkers. We drink it even when watching television. Not long ago I saw an advertisement "Join the TeaV-set." By the way, do you know that the British like taking their tea with milk? Tasteit, I'm sure you will like it.

In the evening at 7 or 8 o'clock people in England have their last but not the least meal of the day. If the late evening meal is light, it is called supper. But if you take something substantial, then we call it dinner. We don't often eat soups, but if we do, that would most often be at dinner time.

I should say the British people do not eat oatas much as other Europeans do, still many of them would enjoy a dinner at a restaurant.Today the number of people eating out has increased.

But the most popular place for a drink and achat is a pub. And that's where I am inviting you now. Shall we go?
