Read Janet’s mother’s story and answer the questions after the text
WHERE’S THE PURSE?..
In the Music Shop I was just browsing. I didn’t want to buy anything. In the shoe shop I was looking for
a pair of shoes. It took me half an hour. I didn’t buy anything because I didn’t like the colours. When I
left the shoe shop the purse was in my bag. I remember it very well. While I was in the shoe shop Dad
was waiting for me in the Salad Bar. We were having lunch there. In the ‘Cool Clothing’ shop I bought a
dress and I paid for it. In ‘Meg’s Bags’ I was trying to choose a fancy handbag… Oh, yes… I remember.
I wanted to see whether one of those fancy handbags was big enough for my purse. I put the purse into
the handbag and… I left it there inside the bag! Oh boy!
