Dear Dylan
I just have to tell about an incident with a burglar at our next door neighbour’s house that happened yesterday. I had a pile of homework to do. I could not believe that the day turned out to be so unlucky. Two hours of work made me tired. I went to take a shower so as to freshen up. After a cool and relaxing shower, I continued with my work. At the sound of my father’s car approaching, I looked out of the window and to my surprize, I saw a faint figure of a man hanging on my neighbour, Mrs Smith’s balcony. As the figure climbed onto the balcony and into the house, I became scared. I thought that he was a burglar. I took up the telephone and called the police. While waiting for the police, I informed my parents about the situation. They told me to keep an eye on the happenings in Mrs Smith’s house. The police surrounded the house and used a loud hailer to ask the burglar to surrender. Mrs Smith woke up to see what the commotion was all about. At that moment, a man came out of the house yawning. I recognized him as the burglar and I shouted, “Officer, that’s the burglar!” Mrs Smith cried out, “No, how can it be? He’s my brother!” My jaws dropped. I immediately apologized to him. I was so embarrassed that my face turned as red as a tomato. From that day onwards, I always avoided Mrs Smith and her brother as I am too embarrassed to talk to them. This was such an embarrassing incident that I would never forget it. Your friend
