  Text A

  Christmas Cards

  It was two weeks before Christmas. and Mrs. Smith was very busy. She bought a lot of Christmas cards to send to her friends and to her husband's friends, and put them on the table in the living-room. Then, when her husband came home from work, she said to him, "Here are the Christmas cards for our friends, and here are some stamps, a pen and our book of addresses.

  Will you please write the cards while I am cooking the dinner?"

  Mr. Smith did not say anything , but walked out of the living-room and went to his study. Mrs. Smith was very angry with him , but did not say anything either.

  Then a minute later he came back with a box full of Christmas cards. All of them had addresses and stamps on them.

  "These are from last year," he said, "I forgot to post them. "
