On a hot summer day in late August, I sought shade and a cool drink at a waterfront cafe on a Greet island. Over hundred degrees in 36 air. Crowded. Tempers(脾气) of both the tourists and waiters had 37 to meet the situation, making it a rather quarrelsome environment(环境).
At the table next to mine sat an attractive, 38 couple,waiting for
39 .They held hands, whispered, kissed, and laughed. Suddenly they stood, picked up their 40 and stepped together 41 the edge of where they were sitting to place the table in the sea water. The man stepped 42 for the two chairs. He politely 43 his lady in the kneed-deep water and then sat down himself. All people around laughed and cheered.
44 appeared. He paused for just a second, walked into the water to
45 the table and take their 46 ,and then walked back to the 47 cheers of the rest of his 48 . Minutes later he returned carrying a bottle of wine and two glasses. Without pausing, he went 49 into the water to
50 the wine. The couple toasted(祝酒) each other, the waiter and the crowd. And the crowd 51 by cheering and throwing flowers to them. Three other tables
52 to have lunch in the water. The place was now filled with laughter.
One doesn’t step into water in one’s best summer clothes. Why not?
Customers are not served 53 . Why not?
Sometimes one should consider 54 the line of convention(常规) and enjoy
55 to the fullest.
