A Car Accident-一场车祸
A car accident of which I was the victim occurred a few months ago at Hoping Road and Chiho Road. The memory of that harrowing experience can still make my heart go pit-a-pat. One day when crossing a street intersection I was suddenly enthralled by the sight of a beautiful girl in miniskirt walking on the sidewalk. For a moment I was oblivious of the onrushing traffic then shrills of alarm arose and I woke up from my daydream with a start. But it was too late, I was hurtled to the ground by a passing car. I can’t think why I was so careless at that point. What a fool I was to cross a busy intersection when I was dangerously distracted by the sight of an attractive girl. If only such a terrible experience had never happened to me! I wish I could see her again, but certainly not at a street intersection and not when I was behaving like a fool.
Whenever I look in the mirror and see the scar on my face I remember that cad accident. I t was a dirk night. I had a very good time at a marvelous birthday party thrown for a friend of mine. We ate and drank and danced happily. I thought I had drunk too much to drive home; however, when the party was over, I jumped into my car and drove away lightheartedly. There were only a few cars on the highway, so I drove faster and faster. Suddenly I screamed and fell unconscious. The next thing I knew was that I was in a hospital, and a few days later when I checked out I found my face was indelibly scarred. I was so put out by the accident. I wish it hadn't happened. Why on earth didn't I drive more slowly? I f only I hadn't drunk so much and what a fool I was to have a drunken driving. That accident has surely taught me a lesson and I think it is not only a good lesson but also an unforgettable experience.
On a holiday morning I drove home from my uncle's. The streets were as usual not crowded. I enjoyed a leisurely driving. Nearing a crossroads, I saw the yellow traffic light flashing off and on. A highway bus was running toward me, but it was still a safe distance away. I drove on. Then, to my horror, I was aware that the big bus was rushing head-on to me. I swerved my car and applied the brake, but it was too late. I heard a loud crash when the bus sideswiped the right door of my car in the middle of the street. At the sight of the big bus standing close by, I was rather frightened. Why on earth didn’t I stop and wait till it passed? I should have remembered that caution is all that matters in safe driving. The bus driver seemed to give me a warning; a small car should yield its right of way to a bigger one. What a fool I was to put myself at the mercy of a big bus! I have learned that it is better to give way to a big bus than to take a chance with the dubious considerateness of its driver and be ruined. If only my small car were as strongly built as a tank!
At the roundabout of the West-Gate Mall in Taipei have you ever seen a high hoarding that shows in numerical figures the incidence of traffic accidents registered daily in Taipei? It is of course a warning to car drivers. I used to see those figures, however, with nonchalance. Although I had a motorbike and rode it to work everyday, most to the time I rode it carefully, and only once in a while I sped on the road for fear of being late to work for a date. A car accident would never victimize me, I thought. I was always lucky. But, alas, I eventually became the victim of a car accident which forced me to lie in a hospital for about fourteen months and become a news-maker in spite of myself. That day a bus was running in my direction and not far from it was bus stop. I was so naïve as to think that the bus driver would pay heed to me. No sooner and I seen that bus approaching me than I sensed I was hurled off my motorbike. When I woke up feeling pain and soreness from head to toe, a nurse told me that I was in a critical condition upon arrival at the hospital and that I was lucky because the doctors decided to operate on me instantly. Now I am alive and well, though I have ugly scars all over my body as a result of eight operations and a maimed leg to boot. I have paid really much too much for a careless driver.
Whenever I start my car I cannot help recalling a nightmarish experience. That experience was connected with a car accident in which I nearly got killed. The accident came a few months ago when I was turning the corner of a hillside within a short distance of my home. Having driven non-stop for many hours, I was clean done in; so I stopped my car and opened the door to get out to take a breather. I was so absorbed in the thought that I would soon see my folks after a long absence that I did not pay attention things around me. Then, just as I got off the car, something hit me and I fell and lay in a puddle of blood. Despite my blurred vision I saw a motorcycle pass by at full speed. Then I became unconscious. When I woke up I found myself in a hospital. My leg, forehead and elbows were all bound up in white bandage. Furthermore, many places on my body were bruised. I had been hospitalized for fourteen days. I can't think why I was so careless at that point; had I been more careful I would have avoided that terrible accident. If only such a harrowing experience had never happened! But I think I have learned a lesson from it. We Chinese have a saying, "One who has narrowly escaped a tremendous disaster will live happily ever after." I hope such prediction will come true soon.
It was the first time I had driven a car all by myself. I had just got a driver’s license and my husband was away on a business trip. Without the ear-piercing chattering of either my husband or the impatient coach, I was having a joy ride along the winding highway 3. Whistling in the warm breeze, I was driving fast and in a relaxed mood. Before long, I was forced to slow down by a huge cement tanker lumbering along ahead of me on the two-lane highway. Never had I seen such a huge monster before; I missed the comforting chattering of my husband very much. Having followed it for ten minutes or so, I steeled myself to step on the accelerator. As soon as I thought I had passed it and re-entered the right lane, I heard a loud crash on the right side of my car. I could not remember how long the shock had lasted, but as I pinched myself to find I was still alive, I was bold enough to keep on driving and the huge monster was lagging far behind me as if nothing had happened. No sooner had I parked my new laser than I found the whole right side of my car was smashed out of shape. Why on earth didn’t I follow that tanker with precaution and patience? I should have realized how poor my driving skill still was. How I wish I had never gone home that day!
Tom and I drove to Tainan last month. As it was a holiday, traffic on the freeway was heavy. I asked Tom to fasten the safety belt, but he said it couldn’t do any good in emergency and turned a deaf ear to my advice. About thirty minutes later, the accident happened. The car before us suddenly slowed down, but Tom couldn’t stop ours in time and the result was a bumper crash. I screamed to find that Tom’s face was covered with blood. He suffered a slight brain concussion, but I, thanks though scared to death. The scar left on Tom’s forehead could still be seen when I called on him yesterday. “I wish I had taken your advice. What a fool I was to doubt the use of the safety belt!” said Tom with a wry smile. “Why on earth didn’t I insist that you fasten it? If only I had insisted! The injury could have been reduced to a minimum,” I also blamed myself.
Describe an unforgettable experience【叙述一个无法忘怀的经历】
When I was six years old, my cousin in Tainan got married. Five of us, including Father, Mother, my two brothers and myself, took a taxi to the wedding party. The scenery was beautiful all along the way. When I was looking at the scenery, however, the door of the taxi suddenly opened and I fell off immediately. Father and Mother took me to a hospital at once. Fortunately, only my nose broke. After treatment, I went to the party with a "red nose."
Mother told me later that if there had been a car coming from behind us, I would have been killed. It was a close call indeed. Since then I have never taken a taxi without first making sure that the doors are closed fast.
Describe an unforgettable experience【叙述一个无法忘怀的经历】
One day when I was a child, I saw an ad about a missing dog in the paper. As my next door neighbor had a German shepherd like the one described in the ad, I called the owner of the missing dog to tell him that. I also gave him my neighbor's telephone number.
I had almost forgot about the whole thing when I heard my neighbor talking in a loud voice one night. I rushed to the window immediately to see what was going on. "I am sorry, but this dog really belong to us. We have kept it for almost eight years now," my neighbor was explaining to a tall stranger.
Suddenly I felt rather guilty, for my childish suspicion of my neighbor seemed totally unjustified. But I didn't have the courage to tell him that it was I who had caused him all this trouble. I have been silent about this thing until now.
Describe an unforgettable experience【叙述一个无法忘怀的经历】
Everybody has some experience he cannot forget. For me, the most unforgettable experience was taking part in an English conversation test. This occurred about three years ago when I had to take an English examination, including conversation, in order to go to the United States.
English was my second language; I had difficulty even with reading and writing, not to mention speaking. Naturally I was very nervous when it was my turn to face the examiners, one a gentleman and another a young lady. They asked me something about sports, sightseeing, Chinese culture, the purpose of my going to the States and so on. I was simply too nervous to be able to make any sensible answer. In fact, I could hardly open my mouth. The interview took about ten minutes, but it seemed years to me. When it was over, my shirt was thoroughly wet.
This was the first time I talked to foreigners in English. This was an experience I am not likely to forget.
An Embarrassing Experience【一次尴尬的经历】
As is often the case, sometime last month I walked on the street and found someone smiling or even trying to talk to me, but I couldn't recall who he or she was at all. I felt so ill at ease that all I did was only to gently stand there and try my best to smile as brightly as possible.
One day such a thing happened again. While I was greeting that beautiful girl, a crazy idea came into my mind that I decided to keep on talking with her though I didn't know her. Luckily, we had a pleasant conversation for ten minutes. But when saying good-bye to each other, we both suddenly found she had mistaken me for my elder sister. What an embarrassing experience it was!
