a) The Auto Show
It took me seconds to get dressed and at breakfast we discussed our plans.
There were some old-fashioned cars which dated back to 1920s - 1930s and a long row of Hondas. Fords. Toyotas. BMWs. Chryslers. Lexus. Dodges, and Mercedes.
Saturday morning was not encouraging at all. Tt looked like rain and I didn't feel like getting out of bed.
Everything changed when my Dad came ;"to the room and handed me a ticket — a ticket to an auto show. Even Mum seemed *o be excited about the show and kept talking about it over her tea.
The sky was clearing up by the time we took our seats at the stand and. to our delight, the weather got better. The show was great! These very brave people called stuntmen were driving different cars and motorcycles. They did "wheelies" — a trick when they drive a motorcycle on one wheel. They drove a car through fire on two wheels and then their cars jumped over another car. I knew that some of the stuntmen had taken part in shooting (съемки) action films. They did such dangerous and risky tricks. We were cheering them on and Mum was wondering how they managed to keep the cars in one piece after performing all of those tricks.
When the show was over, we went to a special place where lots of cars were on exhibit. Mum liked a black Rolls Royce because it looked expensive and romantic as if from an old film, but Dad's and my choice was an open top Hummer H2.
We spent the rest of the day watching the cars and admiring them. I don't know if I'll ever go to an auto show again but it was my idea of a real dav out.
b) The Rock Concert
I had put on the appropriate clothing for the occasion: tight black jeans and a black and silver jumper.
Unfortunately, I will not he able to dance like them.
We had been planning on going to the rock concert for several weeks, but it wasn't easy to get the tickets. That's why, when my boyfriend Jason managed to buy them. I was delighted.
The night of the concert came, and Jason dropped by to pick me up. It matched all right and I looked great in it. At least Jason thought so. We promised our parents to behave and to be home on time.
We went to see the famous group, the Rolling Logs. They were gorgeous! The electric guitars sounded all right and I liked the drummer a lot. The special effects were beyond all expectations. To tell the truth. I prefer this style of music to others. It's very energetic. It makes you dance and jump and cry. It may be too loud sometimes, and everybody around you looks a little bit crazy but what's wrong with that? It's only for two hours and it gives you energy for many days afterwards.
I hope that when I'm an old lady. I will still be able to understand and even share my grandchildren's taste in music. That's why I'm enjoying myself now!
