“Memories” reflect on a variety of aspects of life that we try to hold close and dear to us forever. Our first kiss, the first crush, that one specific birthday, one embarrassing moment, graduation, drinking with friends, and the list goes on and on. We live and survive on these memories.

Part 04 – This part is for the Q and A session. Here I will tell you a story and ask you questions, and you will have to listen carefully and answer those questions.

One day John went to the supermarket. When he was at the supermarket, no one seemed to be there. He was confused. The supermarket door was already open, but no one was inside. He looked around. But still, he couldn’t see anyone. Anyway, he continued shopping. Suddenly a security guy appeared from somewhere, and he said, “Sir, we are closed, how did you come inside?” John said, “the door is already open. That’s how I got inside.” Then the security guy went to the door, checked it, and came back. He said, “Oh! Sir, I’m so sorry. It is my fault, I have forgotten to close the door, but today we are closed.”
