My First Cooking Class

My First Cooking Class

I want to learn how to cook, so today I am in a cooking class.

I am here alone, but there are other students in the class, so I can talk to them.

I am very excited to be here it is a dream of mine to learn how to cook.

The teacher is very nice. She is from France, and she says that she has cooked in restaurants in Paris when she was younger.

Maybe one day I can work in a restaurant in Paris.

I am daydreaming about Paris and I am not listening to the teacher.

"Susie, are you listening to me?" the teacher asks.

She makes me jump because I am busy daydreaming.

"Yes, yes, yes, I am listening, sorry teacher," I reply.

"Great, okay, so for the first lesson today we are learning about making pizza.

The best pizza you can eat," the teacher says.

I start to daydream about pizza, eating pizza in Italy, maybe in Naples or in Rome.

Yes, I can see myself sitting on the Spanish Steps in Rome eating pizza.

"Susie, hello? Are you listening? I am talking to you," the teacher says.

"Oh, I am so sorry, I was thinking about... pizza, but I am listening, please continue," I say.

But before she can continue, I am daydreaming again, this time I am daydreaming about making pizza in my own restaurant in Paris.

Yes, this is my plan now. I can learn to cook, and then I can cook pizza every day in Paris.

This is a great plan; I know I can do this plan if I work hard.

"Susie, for the last time!" shouts the teacher, "where are you? Why are you not moving?

You cannot learn to cook if you do not listen," she continues.

"Oh no... I really am sorry teacher. I can't stop daydreaming about cooking in Paris, this is my plan for the future," I say.

"I understand," the teacher replies, "but you are not going to cook in Paris if you cannot cook in this class, can you?"

"No, no, no, you are right. Okay, I am ready. So, erm, what are we doing again?" I say.

"Oh, I give up," exclaims the teacher.
