My friends, I have written my story to demonsrate the use of idioms. It is a true story. Enjoy and learn!
Well, I often run myself into the ground overworking and taking to heart what isn’t worth a bean. But about 3 years ago I decided to reward myself and bought a very good expensive car I had always dreamt about. It was just an ordinary spring day I will never forget, it was already hot and rainy and I decided to get to work by my new car I was still running in. It was my first drive on the highway and I immediately felt my car be so speedy and so easy in steering! I was happy! I expected seeing the dumbfounded faces of my colleagues when I got out of my new Chrysler, but there was no one in the parking lot! What a disappointment! But I still felt so happy! However, happiness can’t be endless and one of my worst students managed to hit me where it hurt by his remark just before my class. Sure, everybody realized he just ran like a hairy goat, but my good mood vanished into thin air! I got very angry and nervous, I called my wife but she was very busy and couldn’t talk to me. So, I just got into my car and started driving home. The rain was becoming heavier turning into the T-storm. All of a sudden, I was overtaken by a car running like the clappers. I could hardly notice its driver, a very young pretty girl who was obviously hurrying to the hell as there was a turn ahead! I sped up to catch up with her and to tell her about danger but it was hopeless! I didn’t slow down enough before making a turn and ran into her car standing right on the lane! I fainted, but when I came to I was told she had run an alligator over, but she, herself, was safe and unharmed. As to me, I was taken to the hospital, had to have the face plastic surgery and to wear the cast on my arm for 6 weeks.
Now, when I run my mind over that accident, I think it is me who ran like a hairy goat trying to save the life of a person who didn’t care at all! I can run on it over and over, so I have run off this story not to think about it any longer!
Hahaha! How do you like it?
