Read the following text.
My mum is funny
My mum is so funny. All my family say that she is funny. My family is my dad (he
is 45 years old), my mum (she is 40 years old), my sister Molly (six years old),
and me. I am ten years old. My name is Oscar. Oh, yes, and our small brown
dog, Jacky. I don’t know how old our dog is. My mum doesn’t want to be funny.
But she is. At the moment I am watching TV in the living room. My mother is in
the living room, too. But now I can hear her. She is saying numbers: 15 and 89

puter is also in the living room. It is the family computer. My mother is playing a
computer game! But I want my dinner. I’m hungry and my sister is hungry, too.
“Mum, when is dinner?” I ask. “Not now, dear,” she says. “I want to see how
many Lemming levels I can play,” is her answer. Lemming levels! I look at the
computer and yes, my mother is playing Lemmings again! It’s a computer game.
It’s not easy. You must save lemmings. “But, Mum, that computer game! You
play it every day. And I am hungry,” I say. “Yes, yes.” is the answer I get. Not a
good answer, I think. What can I do now? Turn off the computer? No! Shout?
No! Phone a pizza restaurant? Good idea. So I phone a pizza restaurant and in
thirty minutes my sister and I are eating pizza in the kitchen. Mum? She is still
