Mrs Becker’s Secret

Caitlin was eleven years old. One evening soon after Thanksgiving when she was sitting at table she said, “Mrs. Becker, our neighbor, is strange.”

“Caitlin, please don’t talk that way about our new neighbor. We hardly know her,” Cat’s mother replied.

“But she is weird,” Cat insisted. “Her front door was wide open when I got off the bus today, and she was carrying rocks into her house. They were covered with mud. Who in the world would want a lot of dirty rocks in their house?”

Cat’s father suggested the idea that Mrs. Becker had an aquarium. But Cat shook her head saying they were too big for that.

“I’ll make cookies for her sometime soon,” Cat’s mother decided.

The next afternoon when Cat got off the school bus, there was Mrs. Becker in a blue parka in front of her house. This time she was shoveling earth from her garden into three baskets.

“Hi,” she said, pausing to wave at the girl. “Did you have a good day?”

“OK,” answered Cat. She really had had a good day, but she wasn’t sure how friendly to be with this strange lady who dug in her garden in December.

“Looking forward to Christmas?” The girl nodded. “Me, too. It’s my favourite time of the year.” And she went on with her work. The girl kept wondering what the neighbor was doing.

On the morning of the twentieth of December Mother woke the girl with the good news “No school!” The snow was coming down so thick and fast Cat could barely see their garage. Father left early to catch the train, but Mother stayed home. After breakfast the girl took a walk. When she came back, sugary smells greeted her.

“Don’t take your snow pants off yet,” her mother said. “I want you to take these cookies to Mrs. Becker. It’ll only take j few minutes.”

Cat took the bag with the cookies and went outside. She made it to Mrs. Becker’s front door and rang the bell. A second later the door flew open, and there was Mrs. Becker in a red sweater.

“Here-are-cookies-from-my-mother,” Cat said in one breath.

“Thank you,” Mrs. Becker said, taking the bag. “I’m baking, too. Let’s have a swap.”

Before Cat knew what had happened, she was inside the house, and the door was shut. Mrs. Becker hurried into the kitchen. Cat looked around. There was a cuckoo clock on the wall in front of her. She looked into the living-room, and he mouth fell open.

“Wow!”

The entire floor in that room was covered with grass — real grass! There wasn’t a chair or a table or a TV in sight Instead there were potted plants of all sizes and shapes half-buried in the grass. Rocks (the big rocks Cat had seen Mrs. Becker carrying into her house) lined a path leading to a Christmas tree in the centre of the room. Candles and straw birds decorate the tree. A gold star shone from its top.

“Come,” Mrs. Becker said.

Cat jumped. She hadn’t heard her return. “Is it… is it always like this in here?” she asked.

Mrs. Becker laughed. ‘No, this is my Christmas garden.”

Cat looked puzzled.

“The rest of the year I have furniture, but the four weeks before Christmas I change everything. We did it as children. My father would tell my sister and me a fairy-tale as we made the garden. It’s about a poor family that lived deep in a forest. On Christmas Eve when they had nothing to eat, the ice and snow suddenly melted away. The light grew warmer, and the flowers opened. They found all kinds of nuts and berries to eat while the birds sang, “It’s Christmas!”

Cat didn’t say anything. She felt she’d come into another world. She stood there smelling the earth and pass.

“I know you wondered what I was doing the day you came home and I was carrying the rocks into the house,” Mr Becker said. “I decided I wouldn’t tell you then. I’d invite you over for a surprise on Christmas Eve.”

Cat turned to her. “Can I still come?”

“Of course! But try to keep it a secret till then. Can you keep a secret?”

“I can,” Cat said. “And I will.”

III. There are ten extra appearances of the in the following text. Underline them.

The word processor and the calculator are without a shadow of doubt here to stay, and in the many respects our lives are the much richer for them. But the teachers and other academics are claiming that we are now starting to feel the first significant wave of their effects on a generation of the users. It seems nobody under the age of 20 can spell or add up any more. Even several professors at leading universities have commented on the detrimental effect the digital revolution has had on the most intelligent young minds in the country. The problem, evidently, lies with the automatic spellcheck now widely available on the word processing software. Professor John Silver of the Sydney University, Australia, said: «Why should we bother to learn how to spell correctly, or for that matter to learn even the most basic of the mathematical sums, when at the press of a button we have our problem answered for us. The implications are enormous. Will the adults of the future look to the computer to make the decisions for them, to tell them who to marry or what the house to buy? Are we heading for a future individual incapable of the independent human thought?

Listening-Comprehension

Mathew lived in a big city, and his hair was always cut by the same hairdresser. Mathew went to him once a month. He was allowed one hour for his lunch every day, and in the mornings when his hair was going to be cut, he made himself some sandwiches to eat in the hairdressers.

The hairdresser had a very small shop near Mathew’s office, and he worked alone, but he always cut Mathew’s hair exactly as Mathew liked it, and while he was doing it, the two men talked about football or cricket.

But the hairdresser was, an old man, and one day, when Mathew was sitting in his chair, and his hair was being cut as usual, the old man said to him, «Mathew, I’m going to be sixty-five years old next month, so I’m going to retire. I’m going to sell my shop to a young man who wants to be a hairdresser. The shop’s being paid for by the young’s man father.»

Mathew was very sad to hear this, because he enjoyed talking to the old man, and he was also worried that his hair would not be cut as well by the new young man as it had been for so many years by his old friend.

He went to the shop again the next month, and the new man was there. He cut Mathew’s hair, but he did it very badly.

The next month, Mathew went into the shop again. The young man asked him how he would like his hair cut, and Mathew answered, «Please, cut it very short on the right side, but leave it as it is on the left. It must cover my ear. On top, cut all the hair away in the middle, but leave a piece at the front which can hang down to my chin.»

The young man was very surprised when he heard this. «But, sir», said, «I can’t cut your hair like that!»

«Why not?» Mathew asked. «That’s how you cut it last time».
