Coming home in style... sort of
PLS ENGLISH USERS HOST PAUL POSTED A LETTER.
READ IT AND CHECK THE VOCABULARY AT THE END:
Dear English Users,
My vacation has come to an end. Today, I'm coming home to my favorite roadside stop on the web.
And you'll never believe it! The boss was really cool and sent the company jet to get me. But that's the good news.
The bad news is the pilot drank the water over here. He got really sick. Now, he'll have to stay a few days to recover.
So guess who has to fly himself home? But I look at it this way. If I can teach future perfect continuous (passive) to false beginners, I can fly a LearJet.
Just in case, wish me luck.
