Ugh, I wish I had been able to be in class today. My ride flaked out on me and I couldn't find a back up. I don't have money right now because I've paid all my bills for this month so I was unable to call a taxi.

I would like to know more about numbers 3 and 5 on today's post. I certainly need all the bonus points I can get(3). And CBS Sunday Morning, is it the name of a TV program to watch over the weekend(5)?

Today's activity was good because it helped me better understand each of the characters and who they are.
