A full timetable (present simple passive /
was a tourist on holiday in London. He wanted to visit the Tower of London,
Buckingham Palace and all the other famous tourist attractions. He arrived at
the hotel and went to the front desk to check in.
‘Good evening, sir,’ said the woman at the reception desk, ‘How may I help you?’
‘Good evening. I have a reservation for three nights full board. I booked
online. The name is Mark Smith.’
‘Ah, yes, Mr. Smith. I have your booking here on the computer. Welcome to our
hotel. Now first let me explain the hotel restaurant meal times. Breakfast is
served from seven until eleven o’clock in the morning. Lunch is served
from midday to three in the afternoon and dinner is served from six
o’clock until nine.’
The receptionist noticed that Mark looked worried about something.
‘I hope there is no difficulty about that, sir. Is there a problem?’ she asked.
‘Well, it seems like a nice hotel, and I’m sure the food is very good,’ said
Mark, frowning, ‘But when am I going to have time to go sightseeing?’

At this dark and hopeless moment an inspiration
hit him! Nothing less than a great, magnificent inspiration.
He took up his brush and went tranquilly to work. After a while, Ben Rogers
appeared - the one boy, of all boys, whose ridicule he had been dreading.
Ben's was the hopping and skipping along, proof enough that his heart was light
and his anticipations high. He was eating an apple, and singing a tune as he
moved, followed by a deep-toned ding-dong-dong, ding-dong-dong. He was
impersonating a steamboat.
As he came near, he slowed down, moved to the middle of the street, leaned far
over to starboard and stuck out his chest with pride. He was impersonating the
Big Missouri, and considered himself to be drawing nine feet of water. He was
boat and captain and engine bells combined, so he had to imagine himself
standing on his own hurricane, deck giving the orders and executing them:
"Stop her, sir! Ting-a-ling-ling!", and he drew up slowly toward the pavement.
"Ship up to back! Ting-a-ling-ling!" His arms straightened and stiffened down
"Set her back on the starboard! Ting-a-ling-ling! Chow! ch-chow-wow! Chow!" His
right hand, meantime, making large circles in the air, for it was representing a
"Let her go back again! Ting-a-lingling! Chow-ch-chow-chow!" The left hand now
began to make circles.
"Stop the right engine! Ting-a-ling-ling! Stop the left engine! Come ahead slow!
Stop her! Let your outside turn over slow! Ting-a- ling-ling! Chow-ow-ow! Get
out that head-line! LIVELY now!
Come, let out the rope line, what are you doing there! Take a turn round that
post with the rope! Stand by, now - let her go! Cut the engines, sir!
Ting-a-ling-ling! SH'T! S'H'T! SH'T!"
Tom went on painting and paid no attention to the steamboat. Ben stared a moment
and then said:
"Hi. YOU'RE in trouble, aren't you?"
No answer. Tom looked at his last touch with the eye of an artist, then he gave
his brush another gentle sweep and surveyed the result, as before.
Ben stood alongside him. Tom's mouth watered for the apple, but he stuck to his
work. Ben said:
"Hello, old chap, you’re working, are you?"
Tom turned suddenly and said:
"Well, it's you, Ben! I didn’t see you."
"I'm going swimming. Don't you wish you could come? But of course you'd rather
work, wouldn’t you? Of course you would!"
Tom looked at the boy a bit, and said:
"What do you call work?"
"Well, isn’t THAT work?"
Tom went back to his painting, and answered carelessly:
"Well, maybe it is, and maybe it isn't. All I know, is, it suits Tom Sawyer."
"Oh come on, now, you don't mean to admit that you actually LIKE it?"
The brush continued to move.
"Like it? Well, I don't see why I shouldn’t like it. Does a boy get a chance to
paint a fence every day?"
That put the thing in a new light. Ben stopped eating his apple. Tom swept his
brush carefully backwards and forwards and, then stepped back to note the effect.
He added a touch here and there then criticised the effect again.
Ben was watching every move and getting more and more interested, more and more
absorbed. Presently he said:
"Hey, Tom, let ME paint a little."
Tom thought about it, was about to agree, but he changed his mind:
"No, no. I don’t think that’s a good idea, Ben. You see, Aunt Polly's really
fussy about this fence, right here on the street, you know. But if it was the
back fence I wouldn't mind and SHE wouldn't either.
Yes, she's very fussy about this fence; it's got to be done very careful; I
reckon there isn’t one boy in a thousand, maybe two thousand, that can do it the
way it's got to be done."
"No, is that so? Oh come on, now, let me just try. Only just a little. I'd let
YOU, if you was me, Tom."
"Ben, I'd like to, honestly, but Aunt Polly…. well, Jim wanted to do it, but she
wouldn't let him; Sid wanted to do it, and she wouldn't let Sid. Now don't you
see how I'm stuck? If you was to work on this fence and anything was to happen
"Oh, I'll be very careful. Now let me try. I'll give you the core of my apple."
"Well, no, Ben, now don't. I'm sorry..."
"I'll give you ALL of it!"
Tom gave up the brush with reluctance in his face, but alacrity in his heart.
And while the steamer Big Missouri worked and sweated in the sun, the retired
artist sat on a barrel in the shade close by, ate his apple, and planned the
slaughter of more innocents.
There was no lack of material; boys walked along every little while; they came
to make fun, but ended up painting. By the time Ben was exhausted, Tom had
traded the next chance to Billy Fisher for a kite, in good repair; and when he
got tired, Johnny Miller bought in for a dead rat and a string to swing it with,
and so on, and so on, hour after hour. And when the middle of the afternoon came,
from being a poor poverty-stricken boy in the morning, Tom was literally rolling
He had, besides the things mentioned, twelve marbles, part of a harp, a piece of
blue bottle-glass to look through, a fishing line, a key that wouldn't unlock
anything, a piece of chalk, a glass stopper of a decanter, a tin soldier, a
couple of tadpoles, six firecrackers, a kitten with only one eye, a brass
doorknob, a dog-collar (but no dog) a knife handle, four pieces of orange-peel,
and an old window sash.
He was having a great time. He had plenty of company, and the fence had three
coats of paint on it! If he hadn't run out of paint he would have bankrupted
every boy in the village.
Tom said to himself that it was not such a bad world, after all. He had
discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it; in order to make a
man or a boy want something, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to
If he had been a great and wise philosopher, like the writer of this book, he
would now have comprehended that Work consists of whatever someone HAS to do,
and that Play consists of whatever someone DOESN’T HAVE to do. And this would
help him to understand why making artificial flowers or sweating on a tread-mill
is work, but rolling ten-pins or climbing Mont Blanc is only amusement.
There are wealthy gentlemen in England who drive four-horse passenger-coaches
twenty or thirty miles on a daily line, in the summer, because the privilege
costs them considerable money; but if they were offered wages for the service,
that would turn it into work and then they would resign.
The boy thought about the substantial change which had taken place in his
worldly circumstances, and then went towards headquarters to report.
