went to the airport to pick her up. Unfortunately her flight was delayed for a couple hours so I

hung around the airport. I went to the bookshop and shopped around for a while, and I flicked3 [ t , d , Id ] 4 [ t , d , Id ]
through some magazines and bought a paper to read while I waited. She finally arrived
5 [t , d , Id] 6 [ t , d , Id ]
around 5 o'clock and wanted to go straighthome because she was so tired. So we jumped in the
7 [ t , d , Id ] 8 [ t , d , Id ]
car and I dropped her off at her place and headed to my apartment in Boston, but when I tried
9 [ t , d , Id ] 10 [ t , d , Id ]11 [ t , d , Id ]
to find my house keys, they weren't in my pocket; and then I realized that I had left them at the

airport bookshop when I was paying for my paper. So I had to go all the way back to the
airport, but luckily someone had handed in my keys and Iwas able to collect them and head
13 [ t , d , Id ]
back home; but it was a very, very long day.
