It is very strange that some famous professors are very absent-minded. They are always b 1 
with their work and seldom notice what is going on around them.
Professor Martin is not only absent-minded,but short-sighted as well. One fine day recently he went for a w 2 
in the countryside,but as always,he had a book in his h 3 
,and soon was lost in thought. He hadn’t gone far when he knocked into a big cow and fell down. He had lost his glasses,and he thought he had fallen over a fat lady.“I beg your pardon,madam,”he said politely before searching for his glasses. As soon as he had p 4 
on his glasses he realized his mistake.
Soon he forgot all about it and concentrated on his book,paying no attention to anything else. He had hardly been walking for ten minutes when he fell over again,losing both his book and his glasses. This t 5 
he became very angry. Seizing his umbrella,he struck the“cow”in anger. Then,after finding his glasses,he realized with horror that he had made a second mistake—more serious t 6 
the first. A fat woman was r 7 
away from him in terror.
