… and Oh Goodness gracious! I found my mobile at the same place.
Hurry and Worry
One evening, it was past nine, and I suddenly remembered I had to buy a new pair of shoes since my old ones were in a terrible state. We quickly decided to go to the nearest mall. Everyone dressed quickly and rushed to the car. I, as usual, was the last one to reach. Mummy sat behind with a disapproving expression on her face. “Yes, yes I know, don’t tell me,” I said almost stumbling into my seat, “Haste makes waste!”
We reached after nine-fifteen and there Dad took another ten minutes to park the car. Then we hurried to the shoe store. Thankfully I spotted the pair of shoes I wanted right away and they fitted perfectly. Daddy paid up immediately. “What about a light snack?” said Trisha. We all thought it was a good idea. We went into a restaurant and quickly ordered our choice of fair.
I decided to call Raj and tell him I had bought a pair of handsome shoes. I put my hand into my pant pocket and got the shock of my life. My mobile set was missing. Had I left it at home? No! that could not be. In fact, I remembered calling up Raj before leaving home.
