Paul, the Chef

Put the verb in brackets in the correct form. Mind your spelling.
Thinking about what she was going to cook, Paula (be) on the way to the kitchen as Paul appeared. He didn’t (want) her to go into the kitchen, took her apron and (lead) her into the living room. He (want) to cook for her. Paula was confused. Her husband had never (do) anything like that before, and they had been (marry) for a long time. He was the laziest man she knew, and she knew a lot of lazy men. Would he actually be able to (turn) on the oven? Nevertheless Paula was happy. Well, this was a very nice gesture of his love, she thought. Paula switched on the TV, (wonder) and a bit (worry) what her husband was (go) to conjure in her kitchen. Time (pass) by, Paula waited and waited. From time to time she (hear) Paul (curse) at the pots, the oven, the saltshaker and his own hands. Finally, Paul entered the living room with a tea-cart. He had prepared some pasta and a cake. Paula was very surprised. Actually, it didn’t even look as bad as she had (think) it would. Paula was (impress); Paul (tell) her proudly that she was (go) to have spaghetti and a cake. They sat down and enjoyed the wonderful dinner. Paul even prepared some coffee.
"My husband is the best", Paula thought (hope) he would help her with the household after dinner, as well.
Poor Paula should have (know) better. Paul had (cook), but he didn’t (waste) one second thinking of (tidy) up the kitchen. You probably know what a kitchen looks like after little children or men were cooking…
Of course, Paula cleaned the kitchen for Paul, which (take) her hours. Well, shame on you, Paula! Don’t let him get through with that. Why didn't you let him tidy up the mess he had (make)?
