    HOMEWORK

   Now, the VOA Special English program,Words and

Their Stories.
    Last week, I explained some English expressions

about clothes.Everything I told you was true.I did not

talk through my head or say something  without knowing

the facts.
    Everyone konws there are many English expressions

about clothes.There is no need to keep it a secret or

to keep it under your head. In fact, if I keep talking,

soon enough,you will start to think I am an old heat

about this.A reall expert.Do not be for though.My

friends sometimes call me: a wolf in sheep's

clothing.This is someone who acts like a good person

but is really a bad person.
    I am not really a bad person.But I do love

clothes.It is always fun to get dressed up.I look great

in my best clothes.When I put them on,I feel ......You

might say when I wear my best clothes,I am dressed to

the nines or dressed to the teeth.In fact, my husband

says  I look dressed to kill.Of course I would never

kill anyone.But, there is something special about

putting on clothes .that are pleasing to the eye.      

     My best clothes are not modern or

fashionable.Meybe someday they will come  into

fashion.But I really do not care.They certainly look

better on me then my birthday suit.Did you konw that

everyone has a birthday suit?You wear it when you are

wearing no clothes at all.Babies are born wearing their

birthday suits.
    I am very careful with my clothes.I handle them

with kid gloves. I try not to get them dirty or

torn.Most of my clothes fit like a glove.They fit

perfectly.But when I eat too much, I feel like my 

clothes might burst at the seams.My clothes feel too

restrictive and tight.
    Some of the clothes I like best are hand me

downs.My older sister gave them to me when she no

longer wanted them.Hand be downs are great because

clothes often cost too much money.I leave on a show

stright.I have a very small budget and a little money

to spend on the clothes.However my sister has a lot of

money to spend on her clothes.Maybe someday the shoes

will be on the others foot.They oppose will be true.I

have a lot of money to buy clothes and my sister will

get hand be downs from me.
    I admit I dream of being rich.I dream that someday

I will be able to live like a rich person.I will know

what it is like to walk in another persons shoes.Some

of my friends got rich by riding someone else's coat

tails.They are successful today as a result of someone

alse being successful. But, I believe you should never

criticize others for something you would do

yourself.What is said about someone else can also be

said about you.Remember, if the shoe fits, wear it.
