On the Edge of One’s Seat

Intro 简介

Have you ever been so excited about something that you literally can’t sit down? Do scary movies make you and your friends so anxious that you just can’t bear to watch? And you curl up in a tiny ball on the couch, watching the movie through your fingers. Your friends are all on the edge of their seats waiting to find out who the killer is. They are so curious, they can hardly stand it!

When you are on the edge of your seat, this means that you are very excited about something. You might be on the edge of your seat while your Mom is baking her famous chocolate cake. You just can’t wait to have a couple pieces! You might be on the edge of your seat waiting for that cute girl to call. You are ready and waiting!

Andy and Kelsey are very excited to watch their film. Nestor can tell they are on the edge of their seats. Will they be disappointed in the movie? Watch and find out!
