This was the first real task I received in my new school. It seemed simple: go on the Internet and find information about a man named George Washington. As I searched the name, I found that there were two famous people having the same name who looked completely different! One invented hundreds of uses for peanuts（花生）, while the other led some sort of army across America. I stared at the screen, wondering which one my teacher meant. I called my grandfather for a golden piece of advice; let the coin decide. I flipped(掷) a coin and Ah! Tails (背面)! My report would be about the great man who invented peanut butter, George Washington Carver.
Weeks later, I stood in front of the classroom and proudly read my homework. But things started to get strange. I looked around the room, only to find my classmates with big smiles on their faces
and tears in their eyes and my stone-faced teacher. I was completely lost. “What could be causing everyone to act this way?”
Oh well, I dropped the paper and sat down at my desk, burning to find out what I had done wrong. As a classmate began his report, it all became clear, “My report is on George Washington, the man who started the American War of Independence.” The whole world became quiet! How could I know that my teacher meant that George Washington?
Of course, my subject result was awful. Sad but fearless, I decided to turn this around. I talked to the headmaster Miss Lancelot, but she said firmly: No re-dos; no new score. I felt that it was not fair, and I believed I deserved a second chance. So I threw myself heartily into my work for the rest of the school year. Ten months later, I sat in the headmaster’s office again, but this time a completely different conversation. I smiled and flashed back to the terrible moment at the beginning of the year as the headmaster told me I was good enough to skip(跳过) the 6th grade and started the 7th grade next term.

This is a true story in Guyuna. One day, a child took some silver（银的）paper from a
cigarette box. He rolled it into a tiny（极小的）ball and pushed it up his nose. He couldn’t get it out again. He ran crying to his mother. His mother couldn’t get the paper out, either. A week later the paper was still in his nose. His nose began to have a bad smell.
So his mother took her child to the hospital. The doctor looked up his nose. She put a tiny
steel rod（钢棒）into his nose and felt the paper. She said she would have to cut his nose to get the paper out.
The child’s mother came home looking sad. She didn’t want her child to have his nose cut.
He was a handsome boy and the cut would make him ugly.
Next day, the child’s mother took him to her friend Sidney. Sidney lived in a house with an
old woman called May. She asked to see the child, so the child let her look up his nose. He closed his eyes.
“Yes, I can see it,” May said, “It will be out soon!”
As she spoke, she shook black pepper（胡椒粉） on the child’s nose. He gave a mightly（有
力的）sneeze and the paper flew out. His mother was surprised. May told her to take the boy to the sea for a swim. She said the salt water would go up his nose and stop the bad smell.
So the child didn’t have to go to the hospital and gave his nose out.

I made a decision on the way down to the vacation beach cottage（小屋）. For two weeks I would try to be a loving husband and father. Totally loving. No ifs, ands or buts.
The idea had come to me as I listened to a talk on my car radio. The speaker was reading a Biblical about husbands beings being thoughtful of their wives. Then he went on to say, “Love is an act of will. A person can choose to love .”To myself, I had to say that I had been a selfish
husband . Well, for two weeks that would change.
And it did. Right from the moment I kissed Mary at the door and said, “That new yellow sweater looks great on you.”
“Oh, Tom,you noticed,”she said,surprised and pleased. Maybe a little confused.
After the long drive, I wanted to sit and read. Mary suggested a walk on the beach. I started to refuse, but then I thought, “Mary’s been alone here with the kid all week and now she wants to be alone with me.” We walked on the each while the children flew their kites.
So it went. Two weeks of not calling the company where I am a manager;a visit to the shell museum though I usually hate museums. Relaxed and happy, that is how the whole vacation passed. I made a new decision to keep on remembering to choose love.
There was one thing that went wrong with my experiment, however. Mary and I still laugh about it today. On the last night at our cottage, preparing for bed, Mary looked at me with saddest expression.
“what’s the matter?” I asked her.
“Tom,”she said in a voice filled with sadness, “do you know something I don’t ”
“What do you mean? ”
“Well......that checkup I had several weeks ago.....our doctor.....did he tell you something about me? Tom, you’ve been so good to me......am I dying?”
It took a moment for it all to sink in. Then I couldn’t help laughing.
“No,honey,” I said,holding her in my arms. “You’re not dying;
