B Several years ago, I was diagnosed（诊断） with cancer. It?s the most difficult time I have ever faced. I think it was my sense of humor that allowed me to hold on to my sanity (心智健全). Like many people who have gone through chemotherapy (化疗), I lost all of my hair and I was bald as a golf ball. I had always enjoyed wearing hats, so I ordered several special hats with the hair already attached. It was easy and I never had to worry about how my hair looked. I have always been a big golf fan. At one point during my cancer treatments, my husband John and I decided to get away from the cold Minnesota winter and take a trip to Scottsdale, Arizona. There was a Senior PGA Tour event called The Tradition being played, and that seemed like just the ticket to lift my spirits. The first day of the tournament (锦标赛) brought out a huge crowd. It was a beautiful day, and I was in heaven. I was standing and watching my three favorite golfers in the world approach the tee box (开球区): Jack Nicklaus, Raymond Floyd and Tom Weiskopf. Just as they arrived at the tee box, the unimaginable happened. A huge gust of wind came up from out of nowhere and blew my hat and hair right off my head and into the middle of the fairway ( 高尔夫球场的平坦球道 )! The thousands of spectators (观众) lining the fairway fell into an awkward silence, all eyes on me. Even my golf idols (偶像) were watching me, as my hair was right in their flight path. I was mortified! Embarrassed as I was, I knew I couldn?t just stand there. Someone had to do something to get things moving again. So I took a deep breath and went out into the middle of the fairway. I grabbed my hat and hair, nestled (安放) them back on my head as best I could. Then I turned to the golfers and loudly announced: “Gentlemen, the wind is blowing from left to right.”
They said the laughter could be heard all the way to the nineteenth hole. 25.The passage is mainly about _________? A. What the author learned from her golf trips with her husband. B. How the author overcame the difficulties of chemotherapy. C. The most unforgettable moment of the author?s treatment. D. An interesting experience during the author?s golf trip. 26. What does the underlined word “mortified” mean? A. excited B. disappointed C. ashamed D. amused

The author used the embarrassing moment to impress her idols. C. The author was too upset to continue with her treatment after the trip. D.

Even if they live in a city，they can go on adventures in the garden or the park． Children often need a helping hand from mum and dad．They need to be shown what to do and where to go．Andy Simpson from National Health Service says， “We want parents to see what this magical wonder product does for their kids? development，independence and creativity，by giving wild time”． So in spite of the complicated world that young people grow up in now，it seems that going back to basics and experiencing “nature?s playground” is what modern children need．David Bond from Project Wild Thing says，“We need to make more space for wild time in children?s daily routine， freeing this generation of
kids to have the sort of experiences that many of us took for granted”． This might sound a bit old fashioned to you or maybe，like me，and it has made you think about sticking on your boots, getting outdoors and reliving your childhood．There?s no age limit on enjoying yourself! 32．What is the best title of the text?
