I got home at six o'clock in the evening. My wife opened the front door for me.

'Good evening, Ted,' she said.

'Good evening, my dear,' I answered.

'Are you tired?' she asked.

'No,' I answered, 'I'm not tired, but I'm very hungry.'

'Dinner will be ready in half an hour,' she said.

I took off my coat and sat down. My wife sat beside me.

'Did you catch your train this morning?' she asked.

'No,' I answered,' I missed it. 'I ran all the way to the station and got there at four minutes past nine.'

'Which train did you catch?'

'The 9.15.'

'What time did you get to the office?' she asked.

'At ten o'clock,' I answered.

'At ten o'clock!' my wife exclaimed. 'Wasn't the boss angry?'

'No, he wasn't at the office,' I said. 'He arrived at ten-thirty.' He missed the train, too.
