The alarm clock went off at 7:00 a.m. I jumped out of bed, ran downstairs, brushed my teeth, shaved, did my hair, and got dressed.
I made some coffee and put it on the table. Then I sat down, lit a cigarette, took a puff, and sipped my coffee.
I took a look at my watch. It was about time to leave, so I drank up my coffee, stepped out of the house, locked the door, and headed for the station.
I waited for a train bound for Tokyo. It arrived in 5 minutes, and I got on. When the doors closed, my suit got caught between them. I pulled it in and breathed a sigh of relief.
Twenty minutes later, I got to Tokyo Station and ran upstairs. I was in such a hurry that I fell down. I got up and ran the rest of the way to the office.
