Mrs. Simpson made the best soup in town.

Mrs. Simpson put her soup on the stove.

Suddenly she thought about the soup.

She realized she had not put any salt in it.

So she called one of her daughters to help.
于是,她便叫她的女儿们来帮助她。
“Linda,” she said, “will you put some salt into the soup?
“琳达,”她说,“你可不可以往汤里加些盐呀?”
“My hands are too dirty.”
“我的手太脏了。”

“I can’t, Mom, I’m washing my hair,” said Linda.
“我不行呀妈妈,我正在洗头呢,“琳达说。
Then Mrs. Simpson turned to Lucy,
辛普森太太就喊露西,
“Lucy, will you put some salt into the soup?”
“露西,你能不能往汤里加些盐呀?“
“I can’t,” said Lucy. “I have to sew my dress.”
“我不行,“露西说道。“我还得缝补我的衣服呢。”
“Monica, will you put some salt into the soup?” asked Mrs. Simpson.
“莫尼卡,你帮着往汤里加些盐行吗?”辛普森太太问。
“No, Mom,” said Monica. “Ask somebody else to do it.”
“不行呀,妈妈,”莫尼卡说。“让别人来做吧”
“Won’t anyone help me? Vivian, go put some salt into the soup”
“没人帮帮我吗?薇薇安,去,给汤加点盐
“Tell Jessica to do it, Mom. I’m ironing the tablecloth,” Vivian said.
“妈妈让杰希卡去吧,我正熨桌布呢,“薇薇安说。
“I can’t, Mom. I’m looking for my button. I’m not going to do anything    else until I find it,” Jessica said.
“我不行呀,妈妈。我正在找我那颗纽扣呢。不找到扣子,我什么都不会做。”杰希卡说。
So Mrs. Simpson put down her mop.
于是,辛普森太太放下了她的拖把。
She washed her hands and salted the soup herself.
她洗了手,往汤里加了一些盐。
Then she went back to cleaning the floor.
然后辛普森太太继续拖地。

A moment later, Jessica found her button under her pillow. She realized she had been very selfish.
过了一会儿,杰希卡在枕头底下发现了那枚纽扣。她意识到自己刚刚太自私了。
So she went quietly to the kitchen and salted the soup.
