Indirect Speech (A bad day) - Алеша vs Maksim

По цепочке по 1-2 предложения перепишите текст, трансформировав прямую речь в косвенную.

There I was sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

“Well, whatcha gonna do about it?” he says, menacingly, as I burst into tears.

“Come on, man,” the biker says, “I didn't think you'd CRY. I can`t stand to see a man crying.”

“This is the worst day of my life,” I say. “I'm a complete failure. I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me. When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in the cab I took home. I found my old lady in bed with the gardener and then my dog bit me.”

“So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all, I buy a drink, I drop a capsule in and sit here watching the poison dissolve; then you, you jack-ass, show up and drink the whole thing! But enough about me, how's your day going?”

Indirect Speech (Coconuts) - Макsим vs Владимир

По цепочке по 1-2 предложения перепишите текст, трансформировав прямую речь в косвенную.

Mike was not well. He was tired all the time, and his head often hurt.

‘Go to the doctor,’ his wife said.

Mike did not like visiting the doctor, but after a week, he went. The doctor asked him a lot of questions and wrote Mike’s answers down.

‘What do you eat in the morning?’ he asked him.

‘Eggs, bread, butter, jam and coffee,’ Mike answered.

‘And what lunch do you have?’ the doctor asked.

‘Meat or fish and bread.’

‘And what do you have in the evening?’ the doctor asked.

‘Eggs and bread.’

Then the doctor said, ‘Eat some fruit every day, and eat all the skin of the fruit. The skin is very good. What fruit do you like best?’

Mike was not happy. ‘Coconuts,’ he answered.
