Solution 5(4)

Solution 6

Today I woke up at 12 pm. I saw two movies last night and went to bed really late. For brunch I had 10 sandwiches, 2 bowls of mashed potatoes, 10 bottles of coke and 4 apple pies. After this feast, I felt lazy and lethargic again. So I dozed off until 6 in the evening. At 6 I turned on the television and saw that my favourite movie was going to be telecasted. So I remained glued to the television for the next 4 hours. I ate 6 packets of caramel popcorn, 3 packets of nachos with cheese and salsa and drank 5 bottles of coke. Food and television make my life complete. I wonder what I would do without these two things!
