"At the Beach - test and answers"
Complete the gaps using the phrasal verbs below;
Last Saturday, Dr.Grammar decided to go to the beach with his girlfriend. As you probably know, Britain is not famous for its sunny, dry weather, so Dr.Grammar wanted to use this opportunity to ______ ____ some sunshine, and improve his suntan.
Dr.Grammar has very pale skin because he lives in Britain, and because he spends most of his time indoors reading grammar books. Luckily, his girlfriend is a very practical woman and she brought some suntan lotion with her, to prevent them both from getting sun burnt. After she had ______ some of the lotion ____ Dr.Grammar's back, he ______ ____ and started to read his grammar books (he's obsessed!). But after a while he got very hot and decided to go for a swim to cool down.
However, he forgot to reapply more suntan lotion, which had been ______ ____ by the sea. It only took about 20 minutes for his back to get very burnt. He ______ a T-shirt ____ and sat on his towel, watching the other people on the beach. Just as a couple of rather attractive women were walking past, Dr.Grammar's girlfriend opened her eyes. Although she is practical, she is also rather jealous, so she slapped Dr.Grammar on the back and told him to stop ______ the women ____. She was surprised when Dr.Grammar screamed, until (after he stopped crying) he showed her how burnt his back was. Despite seeing his very red back, which had a white hand-print in the middle of it, she was not sympathetic - as she said, it would teach him either to remember to use suntan lotion, or to avoid ______ ____ women!
