One day, a few years age, a very funny thing happened to a neighbor of mine. He is a teacher at one of London’s medical school. He had finished his teaching for the summer term and was at the airport on his was to Russia to give a lecture. He had put a few clothes and his lecture notes in his shoulder bag, but he had put Rupert, the skeleton(人体骨骼) to be used in his lecture, in a large brown suitcase(箱子). At the airport desk, h suddenly thought that ha had forgotten to buy a newspaper. He left his suitcase near the desk and went over to the shop.
