LESSON 1
His Favourite Cousin
Horace was very proud of his cousin, Mike Aspen, Hollywood’s brightest young star.Whenever his cousin appeared on the screen, Horace would say, “Isn’t he wonderful? He’s mycousin, you know ”.What was worse, Horace was always cutting pictures of his cousin out of moviemagazines and putting them on the kitchen wall. His wife would say, “We used to have a niceclean wall. Now all I can see is Mike, Mike, Mike!” Then she would walk angrily out of thekitchen and slam the door behind her.When Mike’s face used to appear on posters or billboards, Horace would proudly bragabout his cousin’s successful career. “He used to go to Midville High School, you know. Wewould always play in the schoolyard together, and we were always getting into trouble together.I remember how he was always stealing apples from the corner grocery store. He used to be likea brother to me. We were always missing classes together. What a great guy, a truly great guy.He was my favorite cousin.”One day, though, everyone woke up to find the daily newspapers covered with theheadlines,
