If you like to get something for nothing, don’t donate. If you believe in fair play, send a donation. It doesn’t have to be much – a little bit if that’s what you want. If you don’t have any money because you’re a student, you can wait until you are rich and then send me a boat or something.


1. I get to meet people from all walks of life. – “From all walks of life” = from lots of different kinds of life, or different lifestyles.
2. Sometimes I can just make things up on the spur of the moment and then make them happen there and then. – “On the spur of the moment” means just then and there, not planned in advance, but just impulsively done then. “I came up with the idea on the spur of the moment”, or “On the spur of the moment I just asked if she wanted to go for a drink with me”.
