When George was1
thirty-five, he bought a small plane and learned2
to fly it. He soon became3
very good and made5
his plane do all kinds of tricks6
a friend. His name was Mark8
. One day George offered9
to take Mark up in his plane. Mark thought10
, "I've travelled11
in a big plane several12
times, but I've never been in a small one, so I'll go."
They went up, and George flew13
around for half an hour and did14
all kinds of tricks in the air.
When they came4
down again, Mark was very glad to be back safely15
, and he said16
to his friend in a shaking17 voice18
, "Well, George, thank you very much for those two trips in your plane."
Gerogy was very surprised19
and said, "Two trips?"
"Yes, my first and my last," answered Mark.
