Make or Do? What an awful day!
I've just had a terrible day. I got up late because I didn't hear the alarm. Fortunately I was woken up by people _____1_____ a noise outside my window. When I got to the kitchen I found we had no more coffee so we had to make ______2____ with milk. As I was ____3______ -up my face in the bathroom Mrs Brown, the neighbour opposite, knocked on the door.
She _____4_____ a fuss because... the children had been _____5_____ faces at her through the window.
When I went back to the kitchen I saw the children had _____6____ a mess on the floor ... so I made them _____7_____ the dishes before going to school. Before I left for work I _____8_____ a list ... of what I wanted the cleaning lady to ______9____ in the house and left it on the table for her.
When I got outside the door I had to ____10______ my way through crowds of demonstrators to get to my car. I arrived late for work and immediately went to say, "How _____11_____ you do?" to the new boss.
He said the company had been _____12_____ very badly ... but that he would do his best to ____13______ a success of the company.
The first thing he wanted me to _____14_____ was to make up a good slogan for a publicity campaign. I said I'd _____15_____ it at once. I went to my desk but as soon as I began to work I realised someone had _____16_____ something childish and stuck my mouse to the table with chewing gum. I didn't want to _____17_____ a mountain out of a molehill so I said nothing but made up my mind to have nothing to _____18_____ with the other people in the office.They are always _____19_____ fun of me anyway.
After cleaning the mouse, I worked quickly to ____20______ up for lost time. I ____21______ up 50 different slogans, though people don't always give me credit for my imagination. I never ____22______ things by halves. I took them to the boss but he ____23______ an excuse and didn't look at them.
After that I _____24_____ a lot of boring filing that I'd been putting off for a long time. I was the last to leave the office and ____25______ sure the lights were off before I left.
I drove home and on the way the police ______26____ me for speeding. They said I was _____27_____ more than 140 kilometers an hour but I think they must have _____28_____ a mistake.
When I got home I saw none of the rooms had been ____29______ because the cleaning lady hadn't come so I had to ____30______ all the housework myself.
I was wondering why the children were so late when I saw a note from my ex-husband. He said I wasn't _____31_____ my duty by the children so he had taken them off to Addis Ababa.
There was also a letter from my doctor. I suppose he had to inform me that I have cancer but it's difficult to ____32______ light of it.
What a mess my life is in!
After thinking about it for some time I ____33______ a decision:
If I'm _____34_____ for anyway I might as well take a 100 aspirins and ______35____ myself in immediately!
