THE BOY AND AN ICE CREAM
Mrs Anderson went to a big local cinema one summer afternoon. Half-way through the beautiful film there was the usual interval, so that people could buy chocolates, ice-creams and sweets.
Mrs Anderson hardly ever bought anything in the cinema but this time she was feeling hot, so she thought, "I'll have an ice-cream to cool me. I certainly need it."
Quite a lot of the audience were waiting to buy ice-creams from the girl who was selling them, so Mrs Anderson waited for her turn.
There was a small boy in front of her. When it was his turn, he offered the girl ten pence and asked for an ice-cream, but they cost twenty pence, so the girl said: "I want another ten pence, please."
The small boy put the coin back in his pocket, put his hand in another pocket, took out another ten pence coin and offered that to the girl.
Mrs Anderson was so amused that she paid the other ten pence herself!

ADVICE / CONSEJITO: Cuando tengáis que responder preguntas en Inglés, siempre tienen que estar en el mismo tiempo, es decir, si la pregunta está en pasado, la respuesta tiene que ser en pasado también, Nunca debemos responder en distinto tiempo del que nos preguntan.
Si nos preguntan Why? nuestra respuesta no debe empezar directamente por BECAUSE, sino que decimos una pequeña introducción y luego ya ponemos el because en medio de nuestra respuesta.
