From YOUR Teacher: Sex and the City Gals

Many men in America soon picked their favorite Sex and the City gal after watching the television series and the movie. I personally liked the Kristin Davis character, Charlotte York Goldenblatt, the wife of Harry Goldenblatt. She was always an innocent woman and good to her husband.

Anna: Last time on Let’s Learn English, Marsha and I invited friends to a dinner party but I shopped with the wrong list. Guests are coming soon. Marsha is worried but I have a plan. Let’s see what it is.

Marsha: Anna, where is the flour? It's not in the cabinets.
Anna: I put the flour inside the refrigerator.
Marsha: Why?
Anna: It’s cold and dry in the refrigerator. See, it says: “Put in a cold, dry place.” Okay, now, Marsha, please hand me the eggs.
Marsha: Anna, where are the eggs?
Anna: The eggs are inside the cabinet under the sink.
Marsha: Anna, why are the eggs in here?
Anna: On the farm, we always put the eggs there. How else can the chickens see them? Okay. You clean the living room. I will make dinner.
Marsha: What are you going to make with these ingredients?
Anna: I have a plan.
Marsha: Okay, the apartment is clean. The kitchen is not. What are you cooking?

Marsha: Anna! Mmm! Hey, this tastes good! Anna, you made it work!
Anna: That’s our guests!
