Story--first year or 2nd year (review)

Vocab:  anduvo, podía _____r, le dijo, en un rato (despues de un rato), esperar

There was a guy named Bob.  Bob wanted to eat pizza, so he walked to his friend, Raul's house.  Raul told him that he couldn't eat now--he was studying--but he could eat in a while. 
 Había un chico que se llamaba Bob.  Bob quería comer pizza, por eso anduvo a la casa de su amigo, Raúl.  Raúl le dijo que no podía comer ahora—estaba estudiando, pero podía ir a la pizzería en un rato.
Bob didn't want to wait, so he walked to his other friend, Larry's house.  Larry told him that he coudl eat until 5:00.  They could eat after a while (it was already 4:30.) Another friend who wanted to wait!  Bob was a little angry, but he decided to eat pizza alone.
Bob no quería esperar, por eso anduvo a la casa de otro amigo, Larry.  Larry le dijo que no podía comer hasta las cinco—podían comer después de un rato (ya era las cuatro y media).¡Otra vez un amigo que quería esperar! Bob estaba un poco enojado, pero decidió comer pizza solo.
Bob went to a restaurant named "Sauce".  When he arrived, the waitress told him that he would have to wait for 15 minutes.  He didn't want to wait, so he went to another reestaurant.  Each restuarant told him that he had to wait, so Bob left every restaurant.
Bob fue a un restaurante que se llamaba “Sauce”. Cuando llegó, la mesera le dijo que tendria que esperar para quince minutos.  No quería esperar, por eso fue a otro restaurante. Cada restaurante le dijo que tenía que esperar, así que Bob salió de cada restaurante.
Finally Bob arrived at a restaurant named Pizza Hut.  He didn't have to wait, so he entered and sat at a table.  He received his pizza and began to eat.  In a while, he realized that his friend Raul and Larry were in the restaurant, too!  The three friends sat at the table and ate pizza together.  Each friend was very happy.
Por fin Bob llegó a un restaurante que se llamaba “Pizza Hut”. No tenía que esperar, así que entró y se sentó a la mesa. Recibió su pizza y empezó a comer. En un rato, se dio cuenta de que ¡los amigos Raúl y Larry estaban en el restaurante también! Los tres amigos se sentaron en la mesa y comieron pizza juntos. Cada amigo estaba muy feliz







  1. Thank you! It is a very nice and rich story! If you allow me a suggestion, use "fue" as "went" and "caminó" as"walked" Instead of"anduvo" . Also, "por 15 minutos" instead of"para"- I always look forward to your stories, they are of great help! I hope you don't mind my comments. :-)

  2. Thanks, Maria! I'm looking for that. This was for the very beginning of the year, so I might have been trying to use andar in the pret. But you're right-it does sound awkward.


Thanks for your comment! I always read and will respond ASAP.
