We had a terrible evening. For a start, Peter was coming down with a _________________and he felt
awful. We had to wait half an hour for our table, which was in the corner, even though I specifically asked
for one next to the________________
and then another half-hour just to get
the____________________ . The waiter was useless. We had to ask for everything about three times
and then he brought the wrong order anyway. I don't know why he didn't just write it down in a
little___________________ like they usually do. We'd just got the first course, which was actually quite
good, when there was this huge__________________ from the kitchen and the chef stormed out with a
big ladle in his hand and started shouting and swearing at the waiter in front of all the customers.
Frankly, I know how he felt. But for me, the worst thing was just after the first course when we suddenly
saw a __________________ running across the floor, closely followed by the restaurant cat. Well, that
was it for me. I couldn't eat another thing. Peter struggled on until he found a bright
green_______________ in his tomato salad. Honestly, you should have seen his face! At that precise
moment there was a__________________ and a flash and I looked up to see a photographer. He'd just
.taken our picture
Something to preserve your __________________ of the evening?" he said. I'm not going to tell you "

.B
I had a terrible evening. I got home late from work and still had a report to finish. As you know, my
computer is really old and slow - I really need to install more _________________. Anyway, when I tried
to double-_________________ on the file I wanted to work on, a ________________appeared telling
me that the file could not be opened. So I decided to try opening it using a different programme but that
only made my computer _____________________completely. The screen went blank and the
______________________ froze. By this time, I was tearing my hair out - it was past midnight and I still
hadn't started working on that report. I phoned my computer guru friend, Matt, and he told me I probably
had a ___________________ in my system. I must have got it from one of those stupid joke e- mail
attachments - you know, like the 'Love _______________' one. I had to resort to using my
__________________ but I hate the keyboard on it - it's too small. At least I got the report finished.
Matt's going to send me some software to fix the problem. He also told me in future to go to the
application ______________________ and launch a good anti-virus programme before opening
!unknown files. Good advice and better late than never, I suppose
