Moe . , . 7, 7 , . ̳ , . , . , . - . , . ! ': , ! My awesome morning. Excuse me, but I'd like to tell you about my usual morning. I wake up at 7, but I usually do not get up at 7, I turn over and go on sleeping again. My alarm clock rings but I throw it or turn it off. Then I get up and run into the bathroom to clean my teeth and have a wash. My pets are always hungry, as I never have time to feed them. I eat something strange for breakfast and leave my house in a hurry. I catch a bus to get to school. That's my morning! And remember: sometimes I'm bored but I'm not boring.

Sanjay's alarm clock rings at 7.00 but he usually turns over and goes back to sleep because he's tired. Sometimes he throws the alarm clock across the room. So he wakes up late and runs into the bathroom to have a wash and brush his teeth. He does not have time to have a shower. He goes downstairs and turns the radio on to listen to music while he has breakfast. He does not have time to eat and he has to drink his tea in a hurry, because he's always late. He leaves the house and runs to the bus stop to catch his bus. He gets to college at 9.00 (well, usually at 9.20) and finishes at 4.00. He comes home at about 4.30 and has his dinner. After dinner, he sometimes watches TV, but he usually does not stay in and goes out with friends. He comes home late - 2 or 3 o'clock sometimes - and he goes to bed and falls asleep at once.
