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.'
