Dear Dad,

I know you are unhappy about the poor grades on my tests this semester. I'm sorry for that. I promise I will study harder next time. But Dad, please, could I study at home by myself? I don't want to go to the cram school any more. I don't think it can help me. I promise I won't spend so much time watching TV and playing computer games. I'll do my homework every day and use my time well to preview and review every lesson.

Let me try, Dad. I'm sure I'll do better.

Your son,

Fred

Daddy,

When I told you I want to marry Mike, you said a 22-year-old girl is too young to get married. You also think it’s dangerous to marry a man I’ve known for only one year. But I don’t think so. I’m smart and old enough to know Mike loves me, and we’ve known each other well enough to start a family.

Mike used to smoke a lot and wear long hair. But he stopped smoking because I hate the smell. He also cut his hair short because I don’t like men with long hair. Isn’t it great to marry a man who changes himself for me?

Amy


Amy,

I think you’ve known Mike long enough as a friend, but maybe not long enough to marry him. You’re still young, and I hope you can take more time to understand him better. Mike’s changes show he cares about you. But you both should know love doesn’t really mean changing or even losing oneself.

I’m worried about you because I love you. I never thought my little girl might leave me so early. But if you think you’re ready for a new life, I will see you off with smiles and best wishes.

Daddy

If people said a book was written nicely, they meant the book was writtenclearly’ orcarefully,’ notstupidly.’ After 1800, nice began to take its modern meanings likekind’ orfriendly.’ Since then, people have thought of nice as a word withgoodmeanings.
