A Strange Present

 

这是一个简单的小故事。用抓重点词的朗诵法试着在最短的时间里复述故事。


One day, when I was 14, my uncle sent me a pink T-shirt from ST. Louis, Missouri as my birthday present. On a beautiful Sunday morning, I wore this pink T-shirt and walked gently to the market. On the way, some boys whistled at me. I became very nervous, so I walked faster and more properly with more decorum, but more and more boys whistled at me later. Therefore, I couldn’t help but become more agitated. Suddenly, I turned back and run to my home. I asked my mother, “Why did the boys whistled at me?” My mother looked at my T-shirt with a smile and said nothing. Then I turned to my father. “Why did the boys whistle at me?”My father looked at my beautiful new T-shirt and then laughingly asked, “Are you lonely?” Suddenly, I realized why the boys were whistling at me. The message on my pink T-shirt was“I am lonely”.
