The Birthday Present

THE BIRTHDAY PRESENT

It’s the 25th of March and it’s Tom’s mum birthday. He doesn’t know what to give her. He is so worried and he thinks what he can do. Finally, he decides to ask his best friend Lucy about it.

TOM: Hi Lucy!
LUCY: Hi Tom! How are you?
TOM: I’m so worried .
LUCY: Why?
TOM: Because it’s my mum’s birthday. I want to give her a present but I haven’t decided it yet.
LUCY: Ok, Don’t worry! I will help you.
TOM: Ok, thank you.
LUCY: Let’s start thinking! You can buy her a racket. Does your mum like playing tennis?
TOM: No, she doesn’t. She doesn’t like sport.
LUCY: Ok, You can buy a CD. Does she like listening to music?
TOM: No, she doesn’t. She prefers watching TV.
LUCY: Watching TV? There’s nothing interesting to watch on the TV. I prefer reading books. Does she like reading books?
TOM: Yes, but she says she hasn’t got time to read books as she’s always doing the housework. You know, things like washing the dishes, washing our clothes, ironing, making meals etc.
LUCY: Does she like cooking?
TOM: Well, she’s very good at it but I don’t know if she likes cooking.
LUCY: Well maybe you should buy something that will help her with the housework and allow her to have more free time.
TOM: Yes but things like that are really expensive and I haven’t got much money. She’s got a washing machine but she hasn’t got a dishwasher. I can’t afford to buy her one of those.
LUCY: Well, you know what they say – the best things in life are free! Why don’t you just help her with the housework? That would be cheaper and I’m sure it would make your Mum really happy.
TOM: Yes, but I have to buy her something, even if it’s something small.
LUCY: Have you asked your Dad what he thinks? Maybe he can give you some ideas. After all, he knows her better than you.
TOM: Great idea! Let’s go and find him.
TOM: Dad, Dad, where are you?
DAD: Here I am, in the bedroom.
TOM: What are you doing?
DAD: Wrapping up Mum’s birthday present. I decided to get something from all of us, because you usually forget.
TOM: What have you bought her?
DAD: Well, she’s always saying that she’s fat and wants to lose weight so I decided to get her something to help her.
TOM: But what is it?
DAD: It’s a tennis racket. Don’t you think it’s a great idea?
