  Lesson 6

  Text A

  How to Make Everybody Happy

  Peter's uncle lived in the country. Once Peter went to stay with him for a few weeks. Whenever they went for a walk or for a drive in the car and they passed somebody, his uncle waved. Peter was surprised, and said, "Uncle George, you know everybody here. Where did you meet them all?"

  "I don't know all these people , " said his uncle.

  "Then why do you wave to them?" asked Peter.

  "Well, Peter," answered his uncle, "when I wave to someone and he knows me, he is pleased. He continues his journey with a happier heart.

  But when I wave to someone and he doesn't know me, he is surprised and says to himself 'Who is that man? Why did he wave to me?' So he has something to think about during the rest of his journey, and that makes his journey seem shorter. So I make everybody happy. "

  Questions on Text B

  7.Read the following conversation once. Underline the key words while reading and retell to your partner the dialogue in your own words.

  Fred: If I won the Pools, I'd go round the world.

  Bert: Would you? I wouldn.'t.

  Fred: What would you do?

  Bert: Oh, I don't know. I'd buy a big house with a garden for my wife and kids, I suppose. But it's difficult to imagine having a lot of money.

  Fred: One thing's certain. If I had a lot of money, I wouldn't work any more.

  Bert: Wouldn't you? What would you do with all that spare time?

  Fred: As I said, I'd go round the world.

  Bect: What would you do after that?

  Fred: Oh, I don't know. It'd take me a long time to go round the world.

  Bert: It doesn't sound very exciting.

  Fred: Anyway, we haven't won the Pools, and we're not likely to win them. So there isn't much point in talking about it, is there?

  Bert: I'd be happy if I got a rise.

  Fred: And my wife would be happy if I hought her a mink coat.

  Bert: Well , I'm not likely to get a rise and you haven't the money for a mink oat, so let'scome down to earth and have another drink.

  Fred: What'll you have?

  Bert: I'll have a pint of the best.

  Fred: I'd have a Scotch if I were you. We deserve it.

  Bert: All right. Make it a double, will you?
