I've been taught that one ought to use an indefinite article when mentioning something the first time in his narration. As an exception, there go The Queen, The Lord and other big and special stuff as well as things in plural. And those things which either have been already defined or mentioned earlier or come as the essentials from the context of the narration should be used with a definite article. Special exceptions like numerals and such go their own way.
Probably, we attended different schools.
I have to say that English punctuation is a real thick wood for me. But reading all those internets I am coming to a conclusion that I'm not alone with that, which makes it a tad easier.
