提交
All boys have to yell sometimes.Anybody knows that.Like if you get stung by a bee,or you hit your thumb with a hammer,or even if some meanie tried to sneak your sack of marbles.But Kelly yelled all the time,not just for important things.He yelled when the cereal he liked best was gone.And he yelled when his mother washed his face.Sometimes he yelled"Mom!"Sometimes he yelled"HELP!"But mostly he just yelled NOISE.""Kelly,"said his mother,"someday you are going to yell too much.But he didn't care.Yelling was fun and it made him feel good."One day nothing went right for Kelly.First he fell out of bed.He didn't get hurt it was just a little bed but that made him mad,and he yelled.When he got dressed,his shirt got all wound up,and he got his arm caught in the neck hole,along with his neck.What did he do?He yelled.His tennis shoe had a knot in the string,too,and he yelled about that.It wasn't a hard knot.He could have fixed it himself,but Mother did it."Kelly,"she said,"I'll help you.Just don't yell."At the breakfast table,Kelly's father said,"Good morning,Kelly."His big brother said,"Good morning,Yelly Kelly."His baby sister,who couldn't talk at all,hunched up her shoulders and pulled down her neck like a turtle,and giggled.This made Kelly very mad,madder even than knots in his shoestrings,and he yelled at everybody."Leave me alone!"and ran outside."I think,"and Father,"today is the day to teach Kelly a lesson about all the noise.No matter what,don't answer when he yells.""That's a good idea,"said Mother.Baby Sister just pulled down her head like a turtle and giggled.Just then there was a terrible yell from the back yard.Mother looked at Father.Father shook his head."Remember what I said."Kelly's yelling grew louder."Help!Help!"Kelly had gone over the fence to catch a butterfly,and instead of climbing back over,he tried to crawl through a hole under the fence.There he was,his legs outside and his head and arms inside,and there he stuck."Help!Help!Mom!"But nobody came.Inside the house.Mother heard Kelly,but she didn't answer him.Poor Kelly.His stomach hurt from all that yelling.He tried to wiggle loose,but the more he wiggled the dirtier he got and the tighter he stuck.Baby Sister came outside.She saw Kelly and the big tears that ran down his grimy face."Please,Baby Sister,"Kelly said,"Go get Mama."Baby Sister just giggled."Please!"Kelly said.She just giggled again.Then Kelly got mad."Oh,how can you get Mama?You don't even make any noise!"Then he let out the biggest yell of all.Baby Sister ran to the house.Kelly was so tired from yelling,he put his chin on his hands and watched.Baby Sister pulled Mother out to the fence where Kelly was stuck."Oh,my,"said Mother,helping Kelly loose,"I didn't know you were making all that noise for a reason."She took him into the house and washed his face.Then she gave Kelly and Baby Sister a big,flat,sugary cookie and some cold milk.Kelly was quiet except for crunchy bites on his cookie.He was thinking very hard."Baby Sister didn't make any noise to get you,did she?"he asked."No,"said Mother,"And I made lots of noise,but you didn't come.""Can you guess why?"asked Mother.Kelly crunched up the last bite of his cookie."Maybe noise isn't very important when it happens all the time."Mother just smiled."I think,"Kelly said,"I won't yell anymore."And he almost never did,except for very important things like bee stings...or pounded thumbs...or marble sneakers.







大家都知道,男孩子们时不时的都会喊叫。比如你被蜜蜂蛰了,被锤子砸了手指或者某些小气鬼试图偷走你的弹珠。但是凯里无时无刻都在喊叫,不仅仅是在重要的时候。他最喜欢的谷物没有了的时候他喊叫,妈妈给他洗脸的时候他喊叫。有时他喊“妈妈!”有时他喊“救命!”但是大部分时候他只是发出噪音。“凯里”妈妈说,“总有一天你会知道你叫的太多了。”凯里根本不在意,喊叫很好玩儿,让他感觉很好。一天早晨,凯里事事不顺。他先是掉下了床。那只是个小床,他没有受伤,但是那让他非常烦躁然后他就喊叫。他穿衣服的时候衬衫全都皱了,手臂还和脖子一起卡在了领口。你猜他怎么做了?他喊叫。他的网球鞋鞋带上有个结,他也为此喊叫。那不是个死结,他自己就能解开,但是,妈妈帮他解开了。“凯里,我可以帮助你,只要你别喊了。”妈妈说。吃早餐的时候,爸爸说“凯里,早上好。”,哥哥说“凯里,早上好。”他的不会说话的小妹妹耸了耸肩,把脖子低的像乌龟然后傻笑。这使凯里非常生气,比鞋带上的结还生气。所以他向所有人大喊:“让我自己静一静!”然后跑了出去。爸爸说:“我觉得今天该给凯里上一课了。不管怎样,他叫的时候不要理他。”“好主意”妈妈说。小妹妹还是像乌龟一样低着头咯咯笑。就在那时后院传来一声惨叫。妈妈看了看爸爸,爸爸摇着头说,“记得我刚才说的。”“救命!救命!”凯里的叫声变得更大了。他爬过篱笆去抓蝴蝶,他没有原路返回,而是试图从篱笆下面的洞里爬进去。他被卡在那儿了,腿在外面,头和胳膊在里面。“妈妈!救命!”但是没有人出现。妈妈在屋子里听到了凯里的喊叫,但是她没有理他。可怜的凯里,喊叫的时候胃一直在疼。他试着扭动,但是越扭土就把他卡得越死。小妹妹出来了,她看到了凯里和他脏脏的脸上划过的眼泪。“求你了妹妹”凯里说,“快去叫妈妈。”她只是傻笑。“求你了!”凯里说,她还是傻笑。凯里生气了,“哦!你怎么能去叫妈妈呢!你根本发不出声音!”然后他发出来史上最大的叫喊声。妹妹跑进了房子。凯里喊得太累了,他把下巴放在手上,看着。小妹妹把妈妈拉到了凯里卡住的篱笆前。“哦,天哪!”妈妈说,帮他松了绑。“我不知道你是因为这个才喊的,”妈妈说着,把他带进房子,帮他洗了脸。然后妈妈给了凯里和妹妹一人一个大曲奇饼和凉牛奶。除了咬饼干的声音外,凯里很安静,他在认真的思考。“小妹妹去找你的时候没有发出声音,是吗?”“是的,”妈妈说。“我发出了很大的噪音但是你没有来。”“你能猜猜为什么吗?”妈妈说。凯里吞下最后一口饼干。“也许当你经常喊的时候,喊声就变得不那么重要了。”妈妈微笑着。凯里说,“我觉得我以后再也不会喊叫了。”而且他也确实没有喊叫,除非是重要的事情,比如被蜜蜂蛰,被锤子砸了拇指……或者遇见了偷弹珠的贼。
