I Am going to tell you about a funny thing that happened to my mother and me yesterday evening. …
Yesterday afternoon my mother took me up to London to see the dentist. After that we went to a café. I had a banana split and my mother had a cup of coffee. When we came out of the café it had started to rain.
“ We must get a taxi”, my mother said. It was raining quite hard. “ Why don’t we go back into the café and wait for it to stop?” I said. I wanted another of those banana split. They were very tasty.” It isn’t going to stop”, my mother said " We must get home".
We stood on the pavement in the rain, looking for a taxi. Just then a man came up to us. He was a small man and he was pretty old. He raised his hat politely and said to my mother. , " Excuse me I do hope you will excuse me ..."
" Yes?" my mother said very cool and distant. " I wonder if I could ask a small favour of you " he said. " It is only a very small favour ". I saw my mother looking at him suspiciously ... " The truth of the matter is" the little man was saying " I need some help".He gave a gentle smile and said. " I beg you to believe, madam, that I am not in the habit of stopping ladies in the street and telling them my troubles". " I should hope not" my mother said. I felt quite embarrassed by her sharp words. I wanted to say to her. " Oh, mummy he's a very old man and he's sweet and polite, and he's in trouble so don't be so unkind to him. But I didn't say anything. The little man shifted his umbrella from one hand to the other. " I've never forgotten it before" he said. " You've never forgotten what?" my mother asked.
" my wallet " he said. " I must have left it in my other jacket".
" Are you asking me to give you money? " my mother said. " Oh no!" he cried." " Then what are you asking?" my mother said. " Do hurry up. We're getting very wet here." " I know you are" he said. " And that is why I'm offering you this umrella of mine to protect you and to keep forever if.... if only... " " If only what?" my mother said. " If only you would give me in return a pound for my taxi-fare just to get me home." the little man said. " It's a lovely umbrella". " So I've noticed" my mother said. "It's silk" he said. " I can see that". " Then why don't you take it, madam," he said. " It cost me over twenty pounds, I promise you. But that's of no importance so long as I can get home and rest these old legs of mine". Then my mother said to the little man, " I don't think it's quite right that I should take an umbrella from you worth twenty pounds. I think I'd better just give you the taxi-fare." " no, no, no!" he cried. " It's out of the question!" My mother took out a pound note. She held it out to the little man. He took it and handed her the umrella. " Thank you, madam, thank you". Then he was gone. " Aren't we lucky" my mother said. " I've never had a silk umbrella before. I couldn't afford it".
