There's a Crocodile in Our Pickle Jar (咸菜缸)
“Alex, your brother ate everything on his plate. Why don't you be a good boy too and eat your dinner?” said Alex's Mom, “I guess you won't be hungry for sweets then”.
“But I'm not hungry," said Alex.
Alex's Mom walked over to the countertop and brought over the most mouth-watering, tasty looking dessert you ever did see. "Okay, who wants a piece of chocolate cake?” Before anyone else at the table could speak a single word, Alex called out, “Me, me, me, me, me!”
“Alex, you just said you're not hungry," said Alex's Mom. “How could you possibly want a piece of cake?”
“I just got hungry all of a sudden," said Alex.
“Good, I bet you're ready to eat your peas and carrots then.”
“I'm not hungry for them. I’ll just have a piece of cake please, said Alex.
“Alex, it doesn't work that way. To get a piece of cake you'll have to eat your dinner first.” “But I don't want too!”
“Well, I guess you'll just have to call it a night," said Alex's Dad. "You're excused from the table Alex. Brush your teeth and get to bed, young man.”
“Yes, sir," replied Alex.
As Alex stood up from the table, his brother pretended to be flying an  airplane. After a bite of chocolate cake made a safe landing in his brother's mouth, Alex ran out of the room as fast as he could. Being sent to bed without having dessert was tough enough, but being teased by his brother is what really took the cake.
After he brushed his teeth and climbed into bed, Alex found it hard to fall asleep that night. His stomach sounded like an angry lion and he felt dizzy. Alex was so hungry that he felt weak and the room was spinning! As he made  his way to the kitchen and opened the refrigerator door. Alex could hardly wait to sneak a nice big piece of chocolate cake. He knew that would make him feel better.
第二节 :
But Alex was shocked to see a crocodile swimming in a jar of pickles. The crocodile looked mean and appeared ready to attack. Alex closed the refrigerator door and cried out, “Help me! Please help me!" Alex's cry for help woke everyone in his family up. His parents and brother rushed to see what was wrong. Alex hid behind the kitchen table as he pointed to the refrigerator and said, “Daddy, there's a crocodile in our pickle jar.” Alex's Dad reached into the pickle jar and took a huge bite out of the crocodile. It was just a piece of pickle.
Then Alex‘s parents reminded him of how important food was for energy. Alex's empty stomach was why he had felt dizzy and weak; and when you feel that way your eyes can play tricks on you. So you see, there never was a crocodile in the pickle jar that night! The next evening when Alex's Mom told everyone there was plenty of leftover chocolate cake for dessert, Alex was the only one who didn't want any. He was too full. Three helpings of vegetables will do that
