"I am ill (я болен)," said Pete to his mother. " I am very ill. Yesterday I had a bad headache(сильная головная боль); today I have a fever (жар). Please, call in a doctor."
Soon the doctor came. He felt Pete's pulse and looked at his tongue (посмотрел на язык). Then, taking a piece of paper, he wrote a prescription (выписал рецепт). He gave it to Pete's mother and said: "Let him take it this evening".
Before going to bed that night, Pete swallowed the paper (проглотил бумагу). When he got up next morning he said to his mother: " Now I feel quite weel again. Wasn't it a very nice prescription?"
