What unpleasant information!

Mary and Tom are having breakfast.

Tom says: "Could you pass the sugar, please? I know that sugar is not good for me. I like coffee with sugar.

"Sorry", Mary says in a low voice.

"Do you remember the breakfast we had last Saturday?" she asks.

"Yes, I do. Your friend Susi was here, too. She wanted to go on holiday next day. How's she going? "

"She isn't on holiday, she is in hospital", Mary answers.

Tom looks very sad at Mary. "What happened?"

Mary answers: "I don't know. She has sent a short message. Look here." Tom reads the message: No holiday, I am in hospital. Susi.

Mary is exited and says: "Let's go to the hospital to see her. What can I give her as a present? Without a present I don't like to go."

Tom replies: "I have a good idea. I know she likes music. I will give her my MP3 player. Then she can listen to the music she likes. "

Mary adds: "We can buy a newspaper in the hospital. I am sure she enjoys reading a magazine."

Tom and Mary are in a hurry. Mary is tiding up the table and minutes later they are driving to the hospital. The sun is shining. Mary is whispering: "Such a beautiful day and what a terrible message."
