Bac_Don: Reading & Game



Readings:



Excuses - Perhaps we all somewhat need to have the occasional guilt trip laid on us by our children when we don't live up to our own expectations.



Fountain of Youth - Once inside, the woman beamed and patted the man on the shoulder. His frown melted. She lifted her arms and he hugged her.



Dancing on a Pin - We had never talked of religion, but we often talked of marriage. She was an old world princess whose ancestors had been guillotined in the center of Paris.



It Never Bloomed For Grammy - "Can I tell you a secret?" "Of course." She turned toward me and placed her hands in her apron pocket. "You must promise never to tell Kay." I blinked, but nodded.



The Park - The old man turns his gaze toward the slide. The metal has lost its shine and the wooden rails and ladders have faded and warped.



Or Maybe A Gift - "It was just a coincidence," Kathleen sniffed. "Or maybe a gift," I added. "We're not really sure. " And now, this time, when he nodded, it seemed he truly did understand.



Frog Legs - When it came time to actually eat though, I was worried for a moment that I wouldn't be able to after all, that I would insult him, and worse, that I would reveal to him a weakness, a fear.

Tracey: Don't you have air-conditioning in your apartment? It's sweltering here!

Alice: Well, there's air-conditioning. Did you see that window air-conditioner there? The problem is that the window unit is not powerful enough.

Tracey: I guess not, huh.

Alice: Well, I'm going to move out anyway. The new apartment has central air-conditioning.

Tracey: You should've moved out long, long ago.

Alice: Well, I had to wait until the lease expired. So....

Tracey: So how can you stand the heat?

Alice: Well, I open the windows and...and I've got an electric fan here. It helps a little.



Erica: I've sent out the invitations for the dinner party.

Erica: We've got to plan the menu.

Manuel: Oh, that's right. Do you have anything in mind?

Erica: I think I'm going to make the chicken salad we had at Pompa last time. Remember I asked the chef for the recipe?

Manuel: Yeah, but did you forget that Linda doesn't eat chicken?

Erica: Linda? Oh, my Gosh! I forgot to invite her! She'll be mad at me. It just slipped my mind.

Manuel: Well, it's not too late yet. I'll make a phone call. Don't worry.

Manuel: Looks like you ARE!



Marshall: Do you know what Jason's home phone number is?

Pam: I can't think of it off the top of my head. You might want to look it up in the phone book.

Marshall: I've checked it already, but it seems that his phone number is UNLISTED.

Pam: Maybe it's under his roommate's name.

Marshall: Well, I guess so.

Pam: Maybe you can call his office and ask his secretary.

Marshall: I've already tried. She won't tell me. She says it's private.

Pam: Oh, that's right. They usually don't release private information over the phone.

HcVcT: Reading/Pronunciation



You’re Beautiful - James Blunt

My life is brilliant, My love is pure.

I saw an angel of that I'm sure.

She smiled at me on the subway.

She was with another man.

But I won't lose no sleep on that,

'Cause I've got a plan.



You're beautiful. You're beautiful. You're beautiful, it's true.

I saw your face in a crowded place,

And I don't know what to do,

'Cause I'll never be with you.



Yes, she caught my eye, As we walked on by.

She could see from my face that I was flying high,

And I don't think that I'll see her again,

But we shared a moment that will last 'till the end.



You're beautiful. You're beautiful. You're beautiful, it's true.

I saw your face in a crowded place,

And I don't know what to do,

'Cause I'll never be with you.



La la la, la la la, la la la



You're beautiful. You're beautiful. You're beautiful, it's true.

There must be an angel with a smile on her face,

When she thought up that I should be with you.

But it's time to face the truth,

I will never be with you.



Here without You - 3 Doors Down

A hundred days had made me older

since the last time that I saw your pretty face

A thousand lights had made me colder

and I don’t think I can look at this the same

But all the miles had separate

They disappear now when I’m dreaming of your face



I’m here without you baby

but you’re still on my lonely mind

I think about you baby

and I dream about you all the time

I’m here without you baby

but you’re still with me in my dreams

And tonight it’s only you and me



The miles just keep rolling

as the people leaves their way to say hello

I've heard this life is overrated

but I hope that it gets better as we go



I’m here without you baby

but you’re still on my lonely mind

I think about you baby

and I dream about you all the time

I’m here without you baby

but you’re still with me in my dreams

And tonight girl it’s only you and me



Everything I know, and anywhere I go

it gets hard but it won’t take away my love

And when the last one falls,

when it’s all said and done

it gets hard but it won’t take away my love



I’m here without you baby

but your still on my lonely mind

I think about you baby

and I dream about you all the time

I’m here without you baby

but your still with me in my dreams

And tonight girl it’s only you and me
