Massage machine mayhem 恐怖的按摩機
One day Mark and Kathleen went to the mall to get some supplies for the summer. Mark needed new swim trunks and sunglasses while Kathleen wanted to get a volleyball set and a big hat to block the sun.
They walked around the mall for hours. Kathleen couldn’t find a hat she liked.
“Why don’t you just get that red one?” Mark asked.
“There are flowers on it. I don’t like hats with flowers,” Kathleen said.
“You’re being too picky,” Mark complained.
Eventually Kathleen did find a hat she liked. But by that time the two friends were beat.
“I have an idea!” Kathleen said. “Let’s go to the store with the massage chairs. They let you have a free trial.”
Finally Mark felt that things were looking up again.
They went to the store. Kathleen sat in a massage chair, and Mark put his feet into a special machine for massaging the legs.
After about 20 minutes Mark and Kathleen were ready to go. But Mark couldn’t turn the machine off and couldn’t get his feet out.
“That’s strange,” Mark said.
He tried using his trunk to pry his legs away from the machine. But then his trunk got stuck, too!
Mark shouted, “Kathleen, help me…!”
