Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 
Tommy was in a rush. Grabbing his school bag and file, he kissed his mother goodbye and headed straight for the door. His father looked up from the newspaper and said, "Better bring an umbrella with you. It says here there's going to be showers in the afternoon."

Tommy looked at the sky. It was clear blue with no clouds in sight." "Not today," he thought to himself. He went straight out without heeding his father's words. He had a good day in school. He managed to finish all his school work which wasn't normally the case. He had a good game of football during recess. So, by dismissal time, he was in a good mood.

On the way home, the sky started to darken and thunder rumbled. Without warning, heavy drops of rain fell and totally drenched him. He tried to make a dash for it and ran all the way home. By the time he reached his doorstep, he was soaked to his skin. His mother looked at him and said, "You should have listened to your father."
