Bac 2010 – Série ES – LV1 Anglais – Pondichéry Mary Ann Singleton was twenty-five years old when she saw San Francisco for the first time. She came to the city alone for an eight-day vacation. On the fifth night, she drank three Irish coffees at the Buena Vista, realized that her Mood Ring was blue, and decided to phone her mother in Cleveland. ‘Hi, Mom. It’s me.’ ‘Oh, darling. Your daddy and I were just talking about you. There was this crazy man on McMillan and Wife1 who was strangling all these secretaries, and I just couldn’t help thinking.’ ‘Mom .’ ‘I know.

Just listen to me. Oh . before I forget it, I ran into Mr Lassiter yesterday at the Ridgemont Mall, and he said the office is just falling apart with you gone. They don’t get many good secretaries at Lassiter Fertilizers.’ ‘Mom, that’s sort of why I called.’ ‘Yes, darling ?’ ‘I want you to call Mr Lassiter and tell him I won’t be in on Monday morning.’ ‘Oh . Mary Ann, I’m not sure you should ask for an extension on your vacation.’ ‘It’s not an extension, Mom.’ ‘Well, then why .’ ‘I’m not coming home, Mom.’ Silence. Then, dimly in the distance, a television voice began to tell Mary Ann’s father about the temporary relief of hemorrhoids. Finally, her mother spoke : ‘Don’t be silly, darling.’ ____________________ 1 A television program 2 The daughter of an American millionaire who was kidnapped in California in 1974. 3 A well-know rooftop bar in San Francisco offering spectacular views. 4 A cocktail Bac 2010 – Série ES – LV1 Anglais – Pondichéry ‘Mom .
