 一、【Text】课文

After her husband had gone to work, Mrs Richards sent her children to school and went upstairs to her bedroom. She was too

excited to do any housework that morning, for in the evening she would be going to a fancy dress party with her husband. She

intended to dress up as a ghost and as she had made her costume the night before, she was impatient to try it on. Though the

costume consisted only of a sheet, it was very effective. After putting it on, Mrs Richards went downstairs. She wanted to find out

whether it would be comfortable to wear.

Just as Mrs Richards was entering the dining-room, there was a knock on the front door. She knew that it must be the baker. She

 

had todd him to come straight in if ever she failed to open the door and to leave the bread on the kitchen table. Not wanting to

frighten the poor man, Mrs Richards quickly hid in the small store-room under the stairs. She heard the front door open and

heavy footsteps in the hall. Suddenly the door of the store-room was opened and a man entered. Mrs Richards realized that it

must be the man from the Electricity Board who had come to read the meter. She tried to explain the situation, saying' It's only

me', but it was too late. The man let out a cry and jumped back several paces. When Mrs Richards walked towards him, he fled,

slamming the door behind him.
