Woman With Gucci Bag Says No



Police took a woman off an airplane after she refused to put her handbag under the seat. The woman in the airplane refused to put her Gucci handbag under the seat in front of her, or in the compartment above her seat.



Passengers on the Cathay Pacific flight from Hong Kong to Tokyo waited for an hour while flight attendants tried to get the woman to put her Gucci handbag on the floor or in the overhead compartment. Other passengers clapped when armed police took the woman with the bag off the airplane.



The woman later apologized. She and four friends who also got off the same flight later took another Cathay Pacific flight to Tokyo. "There was no problem on the other flight", a Cathay Pacific spokesperson said.

A Wine Festival

Some villagers were going to celebrate an important wine festival in a few day's time. So they borrowed a huge barrel from the nearest town, put it in the village square, and determined that each of them should empty a bottle of the best wine he had into it, so that there should be plenty at the feast.

One of the villagers thought he would be very clever. "If I pour a bottle of water in, instead of wine, no one will notice it, he said to himself, because there will be so much excellent wine in the barrel that the water will be lost in it."

The night of the feast arrived. Everybody gathered in the village square with their jugs and their glasses for the wine. The tap on the barrel was opened - But what came out was pure water. Everyone in the village had had the same idea.



Comprehensive questions:

1. Why did the villagers borrow the barrel?

2. How did they plan to fill it?

3. What did the villager who put the water in expect the others to do?

4. What did they in fact do?

The Rose by Bette Midler

Some say love it is a river

that drowns the tender reed

Some say love it is a razor

that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love it is a hunger

an endless aching need

I say love it is a flower

and you it's only seed



It's the heart afraid of breaking

that never learns to dance

It's the dream afraid of waking

that never takes the chance

It's the one who won't be taken

who cannot seem to give

and the soul afraid of dying

that never learns to live



When the night has been too lonely

and the road has been too long

and you think that love is only

for the lucky and the strong

Just remember in the winter

far beneath the bitter snows

lies the seed that with the sun's love

in the spring becomes the rose





Can't Take My Eyes off You by Andy Wiliams

You're just too good to be true

Can' t take my eyes off you

You'd be like heaven to touch

I wanna hold you so much



At long last love has arrived

And I thank God I'm alive

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off you



Pardon the way that I stare

There's nothing else to compare

The sight of you leaves me weak

There are no words left to speak



But if you feel like I feel

Please let me know that it's real

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off you



I love you baby, and if it's quite alright

I need you baby to warm the lonely night

I love you baby

Trust in me when I say



Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray

Oh pretty baby, now that I've found you stay

And let me love you baby

Let me love you



You're just too good to be true

Can' t take my eyes off you

You'd be like heaven to touch

I wanna hold you so much



At long last love has arrived

And I thank God I'm alive

You're just too good to be true

Can't take my eyes off you



I love you baby, and if it's quite alright

I need you baby to warm the lonely night

I love you baby

Trust in me when I say



Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray

Oh pretty baby, now that I've found you stay

Oh pretty baby, trust in me when I say
