28) AFTER HER 90TH BIRTHDAY, my friend Marie found that shopping for Christmas gifts had become too difficult, so she decided to send checks to everyone instead. On each card she wrote, “Buy your own present,” and she mailed them early.

29) (as questões de 29 a 30 referem-se ao texto abaixo)

	People are very sensitive to any intrusion into their spatial
	bubble. If someone stands too close to you, your first instinct is to
	back up. If that’s not possible, you lean away and pull yourself in, 
	tensing your muscles. If the intruder doesn’t respond to these body
5	signals, you may  then try to protect yourself, using a briefcase, 
	umbrella or raincoat. Women - especially when traveling alone - 
	often plant their pocketbook in such a way that no one can get very
	close to them. As a last resort, you may move to another spot and
	position yourself behind a desk or a chair that provides screening.
10	Everyone tries to adjust the space around himself in a way that’s 
	comfortable for him; most often, he does this unconsciously.

31) ENGLAND TO MARK THE MILLENNIUM, London is contemplating the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. If approved, the privately funded, 500-foot-tall wheel would turn continually just across the Thames from Parliament, offering 60-mile views to 960 riders. Amid complaints it would mar the skyline, promoters have promised to keep it on its prominent site for only five years, from 1997 until 2002, then rebuild it elsewhere. Parisians heard a similar vow long ago: the Eiffel Tower, they were told, would come down once the Centennial Exposition of 1889 closed.

If you do something that turns out wrong you can almost always put it right, get over it, learn from it, or at least deny it. But once you’ve missed out on something, it’s gone. There will be the girl you never got to say the right words to, the band you never got to see live, the winning streak you never got to cheer on, the brilliant retiring professor whose class you never took, the relative you never got very close with. It’s a long list no matter what. Try to keep it as short as possible.
