I Did a Silly Thing
A few years ago, when my family moved to this city, I became interested in soap-box race That’s when Idiscoveredthat“it isfareasierto start something than it is to finish it.”
Dad bought a set of tools to make aracingcarfor me I just couldn’t wait, and one day, while Dad was at work, I decided to have my car going. I looked at the drawings,and Isaid to myself,“Dude, you can do this.”I gotout Dad’s toolbox, and I started building. Part A fit intoPart B Part C was a little harder to connectto Part D. It was easy to fix Part E. By the time I got to Part G. I’d made a real mess(混乱)of things. Ireally regrethavingdone such asillything.
What did I learn from this experience?Now Iknow that before I start something, I shouldknow how to finish it.
Today I reada book aboutsnakes.I found some interesting facts,especially somesurprisingfacts in it Did you know that some big snakes arestrongenough to kill a pig or agoat?All snakes eat animals.Withoutsnakes, the world wouldprobably be filled withratsandmice.
You probably didn’t know that snakessmell with their noses and their tongues.Some snakes are even longer than an elephantor agiraffe!
This book made me think alot about snakes.Most snakes don’t hurtpeople, but some aredangerous.I’m thinking if I saw a snake,would I know if it was dangerous?
A Call from the Secretary
Mr. Young was a boss, and he worked hard. Seldom did he have a vacation. His wife was afraid that he would get sick if he continued like that, so she suggested to him taking a vacation. At last Mr. Young agreed. But she was afraid that he might be disturbed by his company, so before they left, Mrs. Young went to see her husband’s secretary. Mrs. Young told her,“My husband needs a vacation very much, so whatever happens; please don’t disturb him with letters or telephones while were away. Just wait until we get back.”
Then on a pleasant morning, after Mr. and Mrs. Young had been away about a week, when the couple was having a picnic and eating their hamburger, Mr. Young received a phone call from his secretary, she said,“Something terrible has happened to your business, but I remember what Mrs. Young told me. so I’m not going to disturb you with it now while you’re enjoying your vacation Bye-bye!”
杨先生是个老板(boss)。他工作很辛苦，很少(seldom)休假(have a vacation)。杨夫人担心他这样工作下去会生病(get sick)．就建议(suggest)他去休假。最后，杨先生同意了。但杨夫人担心公司(company)有可能会打扰(disturb)他，因此，在他们出发前，扬夫人去会见了他丈夫(husband)的秘书(secretary)。她对秘书说：“我丈夫非常需要休息，所以我们不在的时候，无论发生了什么事，请不要打电话或写信打扰他。一切等我们回来再说。”
