Goooood morning! This is Pop Music Top Twenty! Have we got a surprise for you: a special guest right here in our studio! Last week, she broke the record to become the first singer from another country to stay at the top of the charts for seventeen weeks in a row. Plus, she’s only two weeks away from the all-time record set by the rock band the A.B. Brothers seven years ago. By now you should know who our guest is. Yes, it’s the one and only Maria M. from Italy!

Waverly Hills welcomes you to our spacious grounds and facilities right in the middle of the Smokey Mountains. The old farmhouse has been completely modernized with tastefully decorated rooms. There’s plenty to do in the area. You can enjoy swimming in the summer, skiing in the winter, or a run through the woods. You can work up a good appetite to enjoy country-style meals prepared in our own kitchen with fresh organically-grown vegetables. Between meals you can join us for a glass of fresh milk and homemade cookies. We’re often fully booked, so make your reservations early.

Questions No. 23 to 25
The other day, a friend of mine came back from Hawaii and gave me some live Hawaiian Red Shrimp. They’re really thin and tiny, less than one centimeter long, but if you look closely, you’ll see that they’re shaped like any other shrimp. They live in pools of “brackish water,” which is slightly salty water found along the shore where fresh water from the land and sea water mix.
I was given about twenty of them as a souvenir, in a small, clear plastic bottle, the kind that mineral water comes in. The shrimp were playing around in the bottle. I planned to go and find a nice glass fishbowl on the weekend so my new pets could swim in it and I could enjoy watching them swim around. I left the bottle on the kitchen table and went to bed.
The next morning when I woke up, I suddenly remembered that my mother makes coffee every morning using mineral water. I ran to the kitchen, and there she was, holding my bottle in her hand. I was about to say “Stop!” when she said, “Ugh, something’s moving in this water!” So I told her the story and prevented a disaster just in time.
