008 Getting Caught in the Rain

From: EngPodsTv | 08 Jan 2011 | 88 viewssubtitles

I knew it was going to be “one of those days” when my alarm clock didn’t go off. 
I was going to be late for school. 
There was no time for breakfast so I got dressed and ran out of the house to catch the bus. 
Unfortunately, I had just missed it. 
Way to go! I thought sarcastically. 
I was forced to go by foot. 
Suddenly I noticed a change in the weather. 
Dark clouds were gathering overhead. 
I heard thunder off in the distance and I knew a storm was brewing. 
I felt the first few drops on my head. 
In no time at all it was coming down in buckets. 
I mean it was raining cats and dogs. 
I had left my umbrella at home so I was totally soaked. 
Puddles were forming everywhere. 
The streets began to flood. 
I was miserable. 
To add insult to injury, a passing car splashed me with water. 
As if I weren’t already wet enough. 
But I was determined to get to school on time so I kept walking. 
By the time I had arrived, the weather started to clear up. 
The sun came out and the sky turned blue. 
A rainbow even appeared. 
I was feeling much better, even though I was sopping wet. 
I thought to myself that it wasn’t going to be one of those days after all. 
Things were looking up!
What else could go wrong?
Then it hit me. 
It was Sunday and school was closed!
That’s all for now. 
See you next time!

 
Ciao a tutti, sono Michael. 
E benvenuti in EngPods. 
Sapevo che sarebbe stato uno di “quei giorni”, da quando la mia sveglia non aveva suonato. 
Sarei arrivato a scuola in ritardo. 
Non c’era tempo per fare colazione. 
Mi vestì e scappai di casa per prendere l’autobus. 
Sfortunatamente, lo persi per un pelo. 
“Bravo!” pensai sarcasticamente. 
Fui costretto ad andare a piedi. 
All’improvviso, notai un cambiamento nel tempo. 
Delle nuvole scure si stavano formando sopra di me. 
Sentì i tuoni da lontano e capì che un temporale stava arrivando. 
Avvertì le prime gocce d’acqua sulla mia testa. 
In un batter d’occhio stava piovendo a dirotto. 
Era un vero e proprio acquazzone. 
Avevo lasciato il mio ombrello a casa e io ero completamente inzuppato. 
Le pozzanghere si stavano formando dappertutto. 
Le strade cominciavano ad allagarsi. 
Oltre al danno, anche la beffa, una macchina che passava mi schizzò l’acqua addosso. 
Come se non fossi già abbastanza bagnato. 
Ma ero determinato ad arrivare a scuola in orario, e quindi continuai a camminare. 
Quando giunsi a scuola, il tempo cominciò a migliorare. 
Il sole spuntò e il cielo diventò azzurro. 
Apparve addirittura un arcobaleno. 
Mi sentivo molto meglio, anche se ero bagnato fradicio. 
Pensavo tra me e me che non sarebbe stato uno di “quei giorni” in fin dei conti. 
Le cose stavano migliorando!
Non era possibile che qualcos’altro potesse andare storto. 
Poi, mi sono reso conto. 
Era domenica e la scuola era chiusa!
E’ tutto per ora. 
Alla prossima!
