I live in Canada – just north of Toronto. One night I woke up around 3 a.m. and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. When I looked out of the window, I saw a big, dark shape. I looked again and I couldn’t believe my eyes. There was an elephant there! It was damaging the flowerbeds in front of our house! 1. _____ The conversation went like this:
“Wake up. There’s an elephant in our front yard!”
“What are you talking about, John? Go away.”
Well, she finally went to the kitchen with me and we looked outside. 2. _____ But when we were about to go upstairs, my wife looked out of the window again and yelled, “John, the elephant is really there!” It turned out that it was now standing on our neighbours’ lawn. We ran to the living room and called the police. 3. _____ The following day we learned that three elephants had escaped from a circus. One of those animals decided to walk through our neighbourhood.
