You obviously have your hands for handing things! You have your eyes for eyeing people and you have your mouth for mouthing words!
Let me tell you a story.
Everybody loves getting presents and so do I! Recently, to my utter astonishment, my wife has handed (1) me a small box. I eyed (2) both her and the box suspiciously and all I could do was mouth (3) the words: “Oh my God!”
Only then did I recall her mouthing (4) some promises after I mouthed off (5) about not getting anything the previous year. Feeling attacked and always being ready to face off (6), she responded aggressively with: “Back off (7)! There’s no need to yell at me!”
Because of all the excitement I backed (8) against the wall, exhilarated. Facing (9) the facts, it was obvious then what I needed to do. I backed down on (10) complaints about my wonderful wife and mouthed (11) words of admiration to her. I didn’t expect anything, so any present would have been a surprise for me. I got tickets to a concert of my favourite band!
Having opened the gift, I headed (12) immediately for the present for her. I knew that a squeezer headed (13) her list of wishes and I had bought one in advance. The shopping was crazy! I had to shoulder (14) and elbow (15) my way through a crowd of people to get what I wanted.
When I was handing (16) the nicely wrapped box, I thought the squeezer was nothing compared to the tickets. I was wondering whether to leg it (17) or shoulder (18) the responsibility for my choices but, in fact, I had no other way but to face the music (19). “She might not want to divorce me…” – I thought. She fingered (20) the present carefully as if trying to find out what that was but suddenly she cheerfully exclaimed that she had nosed (21) the present out a month ago!
Fortunately, we weren’t heading (22) for divorce. As she unwrapped the present, she rewarded me with a big kiss and invited me to foot (23) the bill in a restaurant! I hoped I would be able to stomach (24) it if you know what I mean…
