                                If I Don't Do Anything Else
    Yesterday morning Paul said to himself. "I've got to write that economics1 paper today. If I don't do anything else, I've got to write that paper. "
    He sat down at his desk and put a sheet. of paper into his typewriter. He looked out of the window, ate a piece of candy, got up to get a drink of water, brushed his teeth, and sat down at his desk again.

    "I haven't written my family since Thanksgiving," he said to himself. "I'll write them a letter first. "
    Paul wrote his family a long letter. "My typewriter needs a new ribbon. I've got to change this ribbon before I write my economics paper."


    The ink from the typewriter ribbon got his hands very dirty, so he washed them and washed them. While he was washing his hands, he noticed that his fingernails were much too long. He cut them very carefully and then went back to his desk. He put a sheet of paper into his typewriter . looked out of the wiudow, and looked at his watch. It was noon.
    "I'll get some lunch now,".he said to himself. "After lunch I'll write that paper, if I don't do anything else. "

                                A Break in the Routine4
    Jonathan Rivers lived alone in a neat, two-storey, semi-detached house in Compton Street. Like many bachelors approaching middle age, be was getting rather set in his ways. He caught the same train to London every morning, ate his lunch in the same crowded restaurant near the office where he worked and always came home on the 6. 00 train. People were so used to seeing Jonathan set off at a quarter past eight, dressed in a. sjmple dark suit. wearing a blackbowler5 hat and carrying a rolled umbrella on his arm, that they said you didn't need to wear a watch if you lived in Compton Street.


    Ever since Jonathan had set up house in Compton Street, he had looked after it very carefully. He worked hard in the garden every Sunday and set out to impress the neighbours with his flower beds and lawn6. Before he left the house in the mornings, he carefully closed all the doors downstairs, opened some windows to let the air in and locked the front door. Everything Jonathan did was tidy and systematic7.


    One summer evening Jonathan returned home as usual at five minutes to sevenprecisely8.When he opened the front gate he immediately noticed something strange. There was a heavy footprint in the earth in one of the ftower beds. Jonathan was just going to blame the milkman or the postman when he noticed that one of the white lace9 curtains in the front room downstairs was out of place. Jonathan never left anything out of place.


    He walked up to the front door and opened it quietly. He listened carefully for a few moments but could hear nothing. The front-room door was halt-open. Jonathan studied itthoughtfully10, wondering if he had forgotten to close it that morning. He had never forgotten before. He stepped silently across the hall to the door and looked inside the room. The shadow of a man was clearly reflected on the far wall in the evening sunlight. He had obvioasly been standing11 behind the door since Jonathan's return. ]onathan grabbed12 the door-handle, sla;nmed' the door and turned the key. Then he calmly picked up the telephone in the hall and set about calling the police.


    The burglar13, a tall, thick-set, bearded fellow, tried to climb through a window to get out but )onathan had expected'that. He set about him with his umbrella, using it like a swoid. Three minutes later the police arrived on the scene. Jonathan was a little annoyed that he had to have dinner laterthan usual but on the whole he felt quite pleased with himself.
