A Strange Flight
We were late as usual. My husband had insisted on watering the flowers in the garden by himself， and when he discovered that he couldn't manage， he asked me for help at the last moment. So now we had an hour to get to the airport. Luckily， there were not many cars or buses on the road and we were able to get there just in time. We checked in and went straight to a big hall to wait for flight to be called. We waited and waited， but no announcement was made. We asked for information and the girl there told us that the plane hadn't even arrived yet. In the end， there was another announcement telling us that passengers waiting for Flight LJ108 could get a free meal voucher （凭单） and that the plane hadn't left Spain for technical problems. We thought that meant that if wasn't safe for the plane to fly. We waited again for a long time until late evening when we were asked to report again. This time we were given vouchers to spend the night in a nearby hotel.
The next morning after a bad night because of all the planes taking off and landing， we were reported back to the airport. Guess what had happened while we were asleep！ Our plane had arrived and taken off again. All the other passengers had been forgotten. You can imagine how we felt！

Whether the hair is long or short， it must be regularly brushed （梳）and regularly washed. For greasy （油性的）hair， especially if the owner lives in a town， it may be necessary to wash the head every four to five days. Those with a dry hair can usually go a little longer， but this is a matter for the individual to decide.
If a woman is not able to go to hairdresser very often， it is important that she chooses a style she can easily manage for herself， and this nearly always means that the first cut must be very standard. The same applies to permanent （永久的）waving. I delay， this should be carried out three or four times a year， so that the hair never gets out of hand.
One thing would be remembered though， that is， whatever you apply to the head can have some effect upon the skin and therefore anything strong should be used with care. Or you may use milder products. As for style， this must be studied according to what is the latest fashion and also to suit the individual at different times of her life.
Young people who has spots or skin troubles on their face， should take particular care to ensure that the hair is both clean and does not come into contact with the affected piece of skin. Hair is very difficult to keep completely clean and therefore anyone running their hands through their hair and afterwards touching their face， or letting their hair fall over their faces， might spread infection from one place to another. Good hair does a lot to the effect of a face， so if you want to look charming， please start with your hair.
