《新概念英语》第一册第117课 Lesson 117 Tommy's breakfast 汤米的早餐
When my husband was going into the dining room this morning, he dropped some coins on the floor.
There were coins everywhere. We looked for them, but we could not find them all.
While we were having breakfast, our little boy, Tommy, found two small coins on the floor.
He put them both into his mouth. We both tried to get the coins, but it was too late. Tommy had already swallowed them!
Late that morning, when I was doing the housework, my husband phoned me from the office.
'How's Tommy?' he asked. 'I don't know,' I answered, 'Tommy's been to the toilet three times this morning, but I haven't had any change yet!'
