OPEN CLOZE TEST

DAVID COPPERFIELD





Fill in the gaps with ONE suitable word.


I AM BORN

 

Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my life, or whether that station will be held anybody else, these pages must show. To begin my life with the beginning of my life, I record I was born (as I have been informed and believe) a Friday, at twelve o’clock at night. It was remarked that the clock began to strike, and I began to cry, simultaneously.

 

In consideration of the day and hour of my birth, it was declared by the nurse, and by some sage women in the neighbourhood who taken a lively interest me several months before there was any possibility of our becoming personally acquainted, first, that I was destined to unlucky in life; and secondly, that I was privileged see ghosts and spirits; both these gifts inevitably attaching, as they believed, to all unlucky infants of either gender, born towards the small hours on a Friday night.

 

I need say nothing here, on the first head, nothing can show better than my history whether prediction was verified or falsified by the result. On the second branch of the question, I will only remark, that unless I ran through that part of my inheritance while I was still a baby, I have not come into it yet. But I do not at complain of been kept out of this property; and if anybody else should be in the present enjoyment of it, he is heartily welcome to keep it.
