  Lesson 12

  Text A

  What a Mess!

  Bill Lane has just touched some wet paint.

  MR FIELD:

  You mustn't touch the wet paint, Bill.

  BILL:

  I'm sorry. I won't do it again.

  MR FIELD:

  Try to be more careful in future.

  BILL:

  I shall. I wasn't as careless as John Sampson. He walked across that wet cement   over there.

  MR FIELD:

  The workmen oughtn't to leave it without a notice.

  BILL:

  The headmaster asked them not to do so.

  MR FIELD:

  Then why isn't there a notice?

  BILL:

  They went to their stores to get one. Here they come with it now!

  MR FIELD:

  But look at them! They've forgotten about the wet cement and they're walking across it to put up the notice!

  "No , " said the old gentleman , "I don't think so. "

  "Then are you carrying the umbrella to keep the sun off you?"

  "No, the sun is not very hot in spring. "
