Mrs Moore had worked hard all day at the office, and she was looking forward to a relaxing evening at home.
Just as she walked in the door, the telephone began to ring.
She dashed to answer the phone and found that the caller was a man trying to sell her some light bulbs.
She refused and hung up the phone.
She smelled dinner cooking and went in to see how her children were getting along with the meal.
Everything was ready except setting the table, so Mrs Moore went upstairs to change clothes.
Just as she reached the head of the stairs, the telephone rang again.
When Mrs Moore answered it, she found out that her husband wouldn't be home for dinner.
After she changed clothes, she went back downstairs to eat.

Her sister called to ask about the familyzs, and a group wanted her to do some volunteer work.
She and the children finished dinner and began cleaning up the kitchen. The phone rang again.
The neighbours wanted to borrow the garden hose.
After the kitchen was cleaned.
Mrs Moore sat down with a sigh to read while the children did their homework.
The phone rang again.Without even answering it,
