There is a doctor whose
name is Dr. Wong.
He never pays attention to
anything.
He never pays attention when he goes
out to the street.
He never pays attention so he always
goes the wrong (wong) way. LOL
One day he goes to the café
to spend time with Silvia.
Silvia is his girlfriend.
She knows that Dr. Wong never arrives
on time. He always arrives late because
he never pays attention to where he is
going.
Silvia waits for him. She sends him a text
message.
The problem is that since he
never pays attention to
anything, he never know
where he is.
He never pays attention when he goes
out to the street, so he never arrives at
the café.
Poor Silvia. She waits and waits and
waits.
Dr. Wong never receives the
message because he never
pays attention to anything.
He goes to a school instead
of (en vez de) the café.
He arrives on time for a science class.
He doesn’t follow the class rules and he
answers some questions without raising
his hand.
The teacher has no idea who he is.
The teacher insists that
he leave/go because he
has no idea who the
doctor is.
The teacher insists that he leave
because he doesn’t understand why a
doctor is in his classroom.
The teacher insists that he leaves
because the doctor doesn’t follow the
class rules!
Dr. Wong leaves the
classroom.
He doesn’t remember to go to the café.
He decides to go home.
Since he is tired, he decides to take a
nap.
Silvia is still (todavía) at the café.
She sends him a text message but he
doesn’t hear it because he is sleeping.
Silvia is at the café for hours & hours.
Poor Silvia
