It’s Friday! I’m glad to finish work at my bank (I create logos and ads with computer graphics).

I get on a tram and head for home . . . but the bad thing about Friday afternoons is the massive traffic. Everyone else is leaving work at the same time.

At Home

When I get home, I change clothes. Then I sit and relax on my armchair.

I turn on the TV, and watch a comedy. I drink a cup of hot tea.

Later I order a home-delivery pizza and eat it as I watch an action-adventure movie.


On Saturdays, my girlfriend Sherry and I frequently go to a shopping mall or department store and shop around.

For lunch or dinner, we might dine at an Italian, Indian, Chinese or other ethnic restaurant.


And about three times a month, we go to a music concert, art exhibition, or circus.

The Usual

On Sunday mornings, I often go for a walk with Sherry in a park.

Then we usually ride our bicycles around town in the afternoon.


In the evening I cook and have supper; tonight it’s beef stew.

After dinner, I read a book or paint a picture. I like to paint nature scenes.

Then I go to bed at about 10:00 pm.

I don’t look forward to Monday morning.
