Towards the middle of the day and at midday I happened to be on and got onto the platform and the balcony at the back of an S-line and of a Contrescarpe-Champerret bus and passenger-transport vehicle which wsa packed and to all intents and purposes full. I saw and noticed a young man and an old adolescent who was rather ridiculous and pretty grotesque: thin neck and skinny windpipe, string and cord round his hat and headgear…

And here’s my effort:
Friday, 13 November 2020
I woke up and opened my eyes but I was still sleepy and dozy, so I yawned, stretched and rubbed my eyes. Finally I sat up and climbed out of bed to get up and make a start to the day.
I made myself breakfast which I then ate, eating breakfast being an important part of starting the day. Then I started the computer, that is, I woke it up, and the screen came on so that I could log in. I worked on things and performed various duties all morning.
I took a break at lunchtime and I rested. I put on my waterproof footwear, that is, my walking boots and went outside for a walk in the nearby woods where I walked among the trees and on the paths. The ground was muddy and wet and squelching under my boots.
After lunch in the afternoon I performed some more tasks and duties before calling it a day when the sun went down and the sky became dark outside…
Over to you. 🙂
