When Ben delivered (递送) milk to my home one morning before Christmas, he was not his _______ sunny self. He told me one of his _______ had left without paying the bill, $79, nor leaving her new address. So it meant that he had to cover the loss.

“She was a very pretty woman,” he said, “with six children and _______ on the way. She was _______ saying, ‘I’m going to pay you soon after my husband gets a second job.’ I believed her, but she left. Isn’t that annoying (令人生气的)?”

“Don’t be so angry. Just make it a Christmas present to the kids.” I said.

The holidays came and went. On a sunny January morning two weeks later, Ben was rushing to deliver milk when he saw a woman running down the street, waving some _______. He recognized (认出) her at once – the woman who didn’t _______ her bill.

“I’m so sorry,” she said, “but I really have been meaning to pay you.”

She _______ that her husband came home one night and said he found a _______ apartment. He also got a new job. As a result, she _______ to leave the new address. “But I’ve been saving,” she said. “Here’s the money towards the bill.”

“That’ s all right,” Ben ________. “It’s been paid.”

“Paid!” she exclaimed (惊叫). “What do you mean? Who paid it?”

“I did,” Ben said. “It went to the children as a Christmas present!”
