Lesson 1: Present Simple vs. Present Continuous

30 Years of Marriage

My brother and I to our home town for the summer holiday. We a peaceful couple of weeks there and we with our childhood friends.

The best thing is that we lasagna cooked by mum. Mum terribly (don't tell her I said so!). But, somehow, her lasagna is the tastiest dish in the world. Actually, right now I on the porch eating mushroom lasagna. What a life!

This year is special because our parents thirty years of marriage. How can you live with someone for thirty years? It sounds like a long time.

We brought our parents a heart-shaped photo frame with a recent photo of them together. Dad for the best place where to put it. I think he a bit too much time to find it. Mum keeps reminding him to take out the trash and he it.

"She me."

"That's because I so many reasons to do so."

"You keep looking for them, they you."
