An Incident Embarrassing
One last day spring I was walking through the local park. Our park is very beautiful in spring. It was a hot day and I was eating an ice cream. As I was walking past the boating lake, I saw my friends, Lucy and Andrew. They were taking their dog for a walk. When we met, we stopped for a chat. While we were talking, their dog suddenly jumped up and tried to get my ice cream. I витягнув my hand away and unfortunately the ice-cream came out of the cone. Now there was a bald man behind me. The poor man wasn’t doing any harm. He was just sitting on a bench and reading a newspaper. Well, when I витягнув my hand away, the ice cream flew through the air and it landed on the man’s head. It was awful! Poor man! I didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. When I looked at my friends, they weren’t just laughing, they were in hysterics. But I was terribly embarrassed.
