A Most Unlucky Day
I had a streak of tough luck yesterday. Everything， it seemed to me， went wrong. And I simply couldn’t understand why all the bad things happened to me in one single day.
In the morning， as luck would have it， my alarm clock didn’t ring， and with an aching head I woke up half an hour later than usual. I was in such a hurry that， when making an omelet， I got my fingers burnt and splashed the omelet all over the floor of the kitchen.
Having no time for my breakfast at that point， I rushed out of my house with an empty stomach and hurting fingers. I had intended to catch the 7:30 subway， but somehow I couldn’t make it. I became very nervous at the mere thought of being late for my English class， because my English teacher is very strict and demanding， and he gets angry whenever any student is late for his class.
After getting off the 7:40 subway， I raced all the way from the station to my school， thinking it would be impossible for me to flag a taxi at this hour of the day. At the corner of the street near my school， I abruptly bumped into a man and， worse luck， broke the glasses I had bought for 500 yuan just last week. With scarcely any time to receive or offer an apology， I just kept on running and running. At long last， I arrived at the school only to find， with great sadness mixed with some relief， that the school was empty and the classrooms were all locked. It was Saturday.
My ill luck showed no sign of coming to an end. When I returned home greatly frustrated， I found myself locked out. In my hurry I had forgotten to bring the key with me. Just my luck！
【点评】这篇文章按照时间顺序一气呵成。文章的标题、第一句和最后一句都点出了中心思想：“I had a most unlucky day”。故事从作者醒来开始，在慌慌张张中煎蛋卷、赶地铁、急奔学校、撞破眼镜、发现白忙乎了一场，最后猛然清醒——匆忙之中忘了钥匙！整个故事描述得精彩生动，既有动作的细节又有作者内心的感受，让读者也身临其境地体会了倒霉的一天。(责任编辑：飘飘风雨)
