Fire!

Today, we will continue to work on Computer vocabulary from the Heinle Picture Dictionary and read the seventh chapter of Andrew's Journey to a New Life in America. (Hint: someone gets fired!)

Before: "hot for"
I am hot for that new girl at work. I think I will ask her out.

During: "burning"

After: "carry a torch"
