new car

Thursday night I invited the friends out for dinner, to celebrate the purchase of my new car.
We went to the Lebanese restaurant and the food was very good. We had chicken marinated in garlic and lemon, the meze and some desserts.
The place was nice, the people pleasant and everything was OK.

Except for the fact that I had no new car.

After a long wait, and having in my hands the car’s documentation and the photocopy of the owner’s ID with photo, I noticed that that man was not the same I had in front of me.
He said he was a representative, I could speak with his wife, I could visit his home.
Surprised for my surprise the man left to get hold of the owner.

They are not back, so far.

  1. Hi Paolo,

    I am sorry for the delay in correcting your work. I have been having problems with my internet connection (they are doing work in widening the lines in my area) and so I haven´t had internet access for the past week.

    Anyway, I hope you are well. Here are my corrections for your blog entry:

    Shocked / unsettled by my surprise, the man left to get hold of the owner.

    They haven´t been back, so far.
