    One Saturday afternoon, Tom and his sister, Viv, were having tea in a café. Tom was telling Viv about his history project. “On Monday I am giving a speech in front of the class. It will be about famous inventions,” Tom told Viv. “Let’s go to the public library and find a book on inventions,” suggested Viv. “We’ll call the library first to see what time it closes.”

    They walked over to an old telephone box and went inside. Just as Viv was about to ring ‘1888’, the number for Directory Enquiries(电话号查询台), there was a loud crash outside the phone box. A woman had dropped her shopping bags.

    Viv dialed the number. When she had finished, the telephone box started shaking, and a loud noise filled their ears. The shopping centre disappeared, and everything went dark. Suddenly there was a big bump. The telephone box stopped shaking and everything was quiet. Tom and Viv looked out of the window. They couldn’t believe their eyes! They were in the middle of a large field. Tom pushed the door and stepped outside.

    “This is amazing!” he said. “I think we’ve travelled through time.” Suddenly some men on horses appeared. They were wearing strange clothes. They saw the children and started riding towards them, shouting.

    “Let’s get out of here!” Tom shouted. They ran back inside and closed the door behind them.

    “Those men look like people from the past,” Tom said. “You dialed the number ‘1888’ for Directory Enquiries. If we dial ‘2010’, perhaps we’ll return home.”

    Tom dialed the number. He was nervous, however, and dialed ‘3010’ by mistake. The telephone box started shaking again, and the field disappeared. There was another large bump. Looking outside, the children saw strange buildings and cars. A face suddenly appeared outside the window. The person had three eyes! Viv shouted with fear.

    “I don’t want to be in the future. I want to go home,” said Viv. Tom quickly dialed ‘2010’. Soon they were back in the shopping centre. Outside, a woman was picking up some shopping that she had dropped. Tom recognized the woman. “We’re back! Let’s help that woman with her shopping,” he said.

    “Thank you. You’re very kind,” the woman replied to Tom’s offer of help.

She turned to look at the children. Tom and Viv jumped in horror. The woman had three eyes…

     “There is no love which is more sincere than the love of food,” said Anglo-Irish writer George Bernard Shaw. Like Bernard Shaw, many writers e1. food very much, and they say and write interesting things about it.

    British poet Owen Meredith(1831-1891) learnt a lot about food when he lived in Paris. He famously said, “We may live without friends, we may live without books, but civilized(文明的) men cannot live without c2.

    American writer Mark Twain also wrote a lot about food. “When you have t3. watermelon,” he wrote, “you know what angels eat.”    

American cookbook writer Alice May Brock has some simple rules about food from different c 4.;“If you want to cook international food, it’s easy,” she wrote. “Put tomatoes on the plate and it’s Italian. Use soy sauce and it’s Chinese. A 5. wine to the recipe(食谱) and its French. Sour cream makes it Russian and lemon makes it Greek. But garlic makes it good! Cheers!”

Tea and coffee are even more i 6. for some people. There is a Chinese saying, “It is better to go without food for three days, than tea for one.”

    American President Abraham Lincoln was often rude about the tea and coffee which was served to him. For example, he was in a Washington restaurant one day, and when the main meal was over, a cup of hot l7.was placed in front of him. He drank a bit and was clearly angry. “Waiter,” he said, “if this is coffee, please bring me some tea; and if this is tea, please bring me some coffee.”

   It was a warm April day when a big fat envelope came in the mail from the only college I had ever imagined attending. I opened the packet. My eyes were fixed on the word "congratulations". I don't remember ever smiling so wide. But then I found that the cost of Dream School's tuition(学费)was around $ 40,000——an impossible amount ! How could I afford to attend? What good reasons did I have to go there when three other fine colleges were offering me free tuition? My other choices were good, solid schools even if they weren't as famous as my first choice.

    In my mind, attending my dream university would be the only way to realize my dream of becoming a world-class writer. My parents understood how l felt. They told me that even though it would be a financial(金融的)problem, I could go wherever I would be happiest. But as I was always careful with money, l wasn't sure what to do.

    One of the schools that offered me had an informational dinner, one night in the spring. Considering my parents' financial difficulties, l decided to drive the 45 minutes and attend. At first, all I had planned to do was smile politely, eat free food, listen quietly. But I surprised myself at dinner. The president of the university talked about the wonderful activities on campus including guest lectures and social gatherings. He also made it perfectly clear that free food would be offered at all future events. He continued with explanations of professors, class sizes, activities, and sporting events on campus. As he spoke, I began to realize that this school, though not as good as my first choice, might be the best one for me. It seemed small yet with many great programs. It seemed care the students. As the president ended his speech, I realized that I would be spending the next four years fighting there.  

   To be frank, my university is not as well-known as my " dream" university. However, it turned out to be the right choice of schools for me.
