V mluvené angličtině se sloveso GET používá velice často. Pokusil jsem se napsat příběh, kde je použité pouze sloveso GET.

The Power of the Verb GET

In spoken English we use the verb get a lot, so I decided to try and write a story which uses only the verb get. The following brief story is the result (sorry that it is a bit depressing)

I get up very early, well the sound of the neighbours car alarm gets me up . As usual I get into the shower , get dressed and get myself a black coffee with a couple of pieces of burnt toast. I haven't got any mail in the post except for a few bits of junk mail. I never did get along with people; I can never get across my positive side, so unsurprisingly, I haven't got any birthday cards , again.

I won't get depressed about it though. More importantly right now: I got extremely drunk last night and I've got a bad hangover can I get through the day at work? Hmmm maybe I could get out of work altogether, after all I might be getting a cold ....or perhaps I should just get on with my normal daily routine....I get another coffee ...I should probably get out into the fresh air before I get too comfortable at home.

Eventually I get round to leaving for work but it's getting cold for this time of year so I quickly get on my hat and coat. I get into the car and finally get off . I get to work late but I get away with it because when I get there everyone has got down to work already. To be honest nobody has got the time of day for me at work anyway but I have always got by without many's nothing to get bothered about . At least my ex-girlfriend has recently got sacked from our office so I am, at last, getting over her . I get a call from a client; he gets angry ; I can't get my point through to him; he gets angrier ; I'm getting a headache so eventually he happily gets put through to my manager. I'll be getting into trouble . I must get another job , or maybe get a life perhaps.

I'll get through the day; I'll never get ahead , but I will always get by . I'll get my head down early tonight, yeah, I'll get an early night ........
