Life is beautiful – Story

Share |

I live in Ohio, US. The weather in spring is very changeable here. It can be pleasant and dry, but we often have showers. Even the weather forecast for today is for heavy rain, perhaps with thunder and lightning.


I’m walking down the street. It is exactly 3.15 pm now. The wind is blowing. I feel miserable. I’m under the weather. I go to the drugstore to buy Band-Aid and a box of tissues.


My next stop is the clothing store. I want to buy something new - to lift my mood. I’m trying on a pink tank top in the dressing room. It is lovely, but it is too tight. I ask the sales clerk for a bigger size. He shows me a crop top Open-mouthed smile, however, in a purple color. It looks really nice! And it turns out it suits me very well. I love it! I take it and go to the register at the front. I pay in cash. I get my receipt and go out of the store. I’m very happy. Life is beautiful :-)


Outside, it is pouring rain

**dry – opposite wet

***shower = a short period of rain

Nowadays, the vast majority use credit or debit cards. Only about 30% use cash (like me Open-mouthed smile) and generally for small purchases.
