Talking About Daily Habits

I think the most terrible thing in life for my little brother is getting up in the morning. He is almost sick when his mother calls, “Herbert! It’s seven o’clock! Get up!” Herbert answers, “I’m coming!” and goes right back to sleep. Creo que la cosa más terrible en la vida de mi hermano pequeño se levanta por la mañana. Es casi enferma cuando su madre llama “, Herbert! Son las siete! ¡Levántate! “Herbert responde:” Ya voy “, y va a la derecha de nuevo a dormir.

I’m not at all like my brother. I don’t like to go to bed at night but I don’t mind getting up in the morning. I usually wake up before my mother calls me. I jump out of bed and go into the bathroom to take my shower. I get dressed, brush my teeth, comb my hair, and get ready to go downstairs for breakfast as soon as my mother calls. No soy para nada como mi hermano. No me gusta ir a la cama por la noche, pero no me importa levantarse por la mañana. Usualmente me levanto antes de que mi madre me llama. Salto de la cama e ir al baño a ducharme. Me visto, me cepillo los dientes, peinarme, y prepárate para ir abajo para el desayuno tan pronto como mi madre llama.

But not Herby. He just sleeps. A military band in our bedroom could not wake him up. I call him and say, “Get up! Mom will be up here to pull you out of bed if you don’t get up immediately!” Pero no Herby. Él sólo duerme. Una banda militar en nuestra habitación no podía despertar. Lo llamo y le digo: “¡Levántate! Mamá estará aquí para sacarte de la cama si no se levanta de inmediato! “

But he just sleeps. After calling a few more times my mother has to come upstairs and pull Herby out of bed. He always says, “I was going to get up in another minute. Really I was.” Pero él duerme. Después de llamar a unos pocos más veces mi madre tiene que venir de arriba y tire Herby de la cama. Él siempre dice, “me iba a levantar en un minuto. Realmente yo era “.

It’s that way every day with my little brother. Perhaps some day he’ll learn to get up on time, but I really don’t think so. Es de esa manera todos los días con mi hermano pequeño. Tal vez algún día aprenderá a levantarse a tiempo, pero realmente no lo creo.

Questions:

1. What doesn’t Herby like to do?

2. What doesn’t his brother like to do?

3. What does Herby’s brother do before his mother calls in the morning?

4. What does Herby say when his mother pulls him out of bed?

5. Are you like Herby or his brother?
