    Hi Teacher,

    I am not sure about the meanings of the following three sentences. Please do me a favor.

    1. Life has a lousy sense of timing.
    2. The adrenaline was pumping.
    3. Do not go gently into the fucking night.

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: questions

    1- Things happen at unfortunate times.
    2- The person was excited
    3- This is a corruption of a line from a poem by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (Do not go gentle into that good night). Thomas meant that we shouldn't accept death, but should fight angrily against the unfairness of dath.
