Mr. Busy is not an old man. He’s a young man. Mr. Busy lives with his family in a big city in Colombia. He has a lot of things to do every day but all the things he has to do are the same day by day. His day starts at 4:50 am when his alarm rings. He doesn’t wake up immediately. He sleeps 5 more minutes and when the alarm rings for the second time, he gets up at once. At 5:00 am, he goes to the bathroom to takes a 10 minute, cold shower. He says a shower with hot water is not good for a busy day. At 5:10 am, he gets dressed. He puts on his underwear, his pants, his socks, his shoes, and finally his shirt. It takes him 20 minutes to get dressed. At 5:30. he goes to the kitchen and prepares his breakfast. He doesn’t like to have breakfast at home so he takes it to the university. Mr. Busy’s first class is at 6:00 am but his teacher is in the classroom at 5:55 am. He likes to arrive five minutes before the class start to have everything ready to begin the class. At 9:25 am, Mr. Busy has breakfast at the university tables with his friends. His second class starts at 10:05 am and it finishes at 11:45 am. When he leaves the classroom, he immediately goes to the cafeteria and buys his lunch because he only has 20 minutes to eat. When he finishes his lunch, he is ready to go to work so he has to walk seven blocks to get to the metro station. From the metro station to his office, it takes him 35 minutes and he must be in his office by 12:45 pm which means he must run from the metro station to his office to be on time. Mr. Busy works all day from 1:00 pm to 9:30 pm and when he finishes his busy day at work, he has to take a bus home. Sometimes he gets the bus at 9:35 pm and sometimes he gets the bust at 9:40 pm. When Mr. Busy gets home, he greets his wife, daughter, mother, both brothers and his sister. His wife makes him dinner and they talk about their day while they eat together. Every night before going to sleep, Mr. Busy dedicates some time playing with his one-month old baby girl. When she falls asleep, he writes some sentences in his English book. Mr. Busy goes to bed at 11:45 pm every day. He’s very tired, but he loves what he does.
