Writeacher, I need you to check a paragraph I wrote some time ago. You revised just part of it. Thank you.

1)Speaker 4 has had lots of interviews lately. He was getting a bit blasé by the time he had my last interview. What he hadn't planned though was he had to park his car and put money in a meter for the parking space.
2) As he didn’t have any change, it took him quite a lot to find a cafè where he could get the right coins. So he ended up flying through the door of the interview place about five minutes too late.
3) It was really hard for him to regain his self-composure. He is not going to do that again!

    3) It was really hard for him to regain his self-composure. He is not going to cut it that close again!
    (cut it close = show up right on time)
