MAIN STREAM Reading Course Lesson1 Days with Rose

Part1 p.6

On the first day of school, our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone new to us.

I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder.

I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady who smiled at me brightly.

She said, “Hi, handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old.

Can I give you a hug?” I laughed and enthusiastically responded, “Of course you may!”

and she gave me a giant squeeze.

“Why are you in college at such a young and innocent age?” I asked. She jokingly replied, “I’m here to meet a rich husband, get married, have a couple of children, and then retire and travel.”

“No, seriously,” I asked. I was curious about what motivated her to take on this challenge at her age.

“I always dreamed of having a college education, and now I’m getting one!” she told me.
