Reading What’s something you can’t stand? I can t stand waiting in lines. I m always in a rush so when I see a long line I always try to avoid it. Sometimes I have bad luck because the shortest line could become the longest waiting time. It s either the cashier that s slow or the customer who slows things down. When the cashier just started his or her job there, they always make a mistake or does not know what to do when there s a problem. They often have to go get help. It drives me crazy! I know everyone makes mistakes but I just don t have time to kill! What’s something you want to do or you plan to do? I ve decided to take the stairs up at least once a day. I live on the 9th floor so I m out of breath when I get there. It s a good exercise but yesterday I was running up the stairs and I tripped and almost fell on my face. Luckily, I was able to put my hand down before my face hit the stairs but it freaked me out. I would have definitely broken my nose if I had hit my face. Maybe, I should try walking up instead of running up. Speaking Talk about something you can t stand. Talk about something you want to do or something you ve decided to do.
