Hi, I’m Carl.

Can you guess what a supermarket contest is? Last week my best friend made me
participate in my neighbourhood one. It was really funny. First they gave me a
shopping list with all the products I had to buy. I just had ten minutes to fill my
trolley with more than fifty different items: Some bread, ketchup, milk- I didn't
know how much milk so I took three bottles-, a bar of chocolate, tree big slices of
cheesecake, and some vegetables and fruit as onions, cherries, carrots, a melon, and
I ran along the corridors looking for the different aisles. There were many shelves
filled with canned goods and daily products. I just needed some meat and two or
three items on sale and I would win.
When I arrived at the cashier, he told me “That’s ninety pounds fifty”.” How much?”
I asked in amazement. “That’s a lot of money. You must be joking. I’m just going in
for a context. “But you must pay for everything you have in your shopping card”, he
said angrily.
I was the winner as I think that nobody else participated.
