The big winner
I won Dribble at Jimmy Fargo's birthday party. all the other guys got to take home goldfish in little plastic bags . I won him because I guessed there were three hundred and forty-eight jelly beans in Mrs. fargo's jar. Really, there were four hundred and twenty-three, she told us later. still, my guess was closest. Peter warren Hatcher is the big winner! Mrs. Fargo announced.
At first I felt bad that I didn't get a goldfish too. then Jimmy handed me a glass bowl. inside there was some water and three rocks. A tiny green turtle was sleeping on the biggest rock. All the other was guys looked at their goldfish. I knew what they were thinking. They wished they could have tiny green turtles too.
I named my turtle Drebble while I was walking home from Jimmy's party. I live at 25 west 68th street. It's an old apartment building. But it's got one of the best elevators in new york city. there are mirrors all around. You can see yourself from every angle. there's a loft, cushioned bench to sit on if you're too tired to stand. The elevator operator's name is Henry Bevelheimer. He lets us call him Henry because Bevelheimer's very hard to say. Our apartment's on the twelfth floor . But I don't have to tell Henry . He already knows. He knows everybody in the building. He's that smart! He even knows I'm nice and in fourth grade. I showed him Dribble right away. I won him at a birthday party, I said.
Henry smiled. Your mother's going to be surprised. Henry was right. My mother was really surprised. Her mouth onened when I said, Just look at what I won at Jimmy fargo's birthday party . I held up my tiny green turtle. I've already named him...Dribble! Isn't that a great name for a turtle?
My mother made a face. I don't like the way he smells, she said. What do you mean? I asked. I put my nose right down close to him. I didn't smell anything but turtle. So Dribble smells like turtle, I thought. Well, he's supposed to. That's what he is!
And I'm not going to take care of him either, my mother added. Of course you're not, I told her. He's my turtle. And I'm the one who's going to change his water and clean out his bowl and feed him and all of that? she asked. Yes, I said. And even more. I'm going to see to it that he's happy!
This time my mother made a funny noise. Like a groan. I went into my bedrrom. I put Dribble on top of my dresser. I tried to pet him and tell him he would be happy leving with me. But it isn't easy to pet a turtle. They aren't soft and furry they don't lick you or anything. Still, I had my very own pet at last. Later, when I sat down at the dinne table, my mother said, I smell turtle. Peter, go and scrub your hands!
some people might think that my mother is my biggest problem . She doesn't like turtles and she's always telling me to scrub my hands. That doesn't mean just run them under the water. Scrub means I'm supposed to use soap and rub my hands together.
then I've got to rinse and dry them. I ought to know by now. I've heard it enough!
But my mother isn't my biggest problem. Neither is my father is my father. He spends a lot of time watching commercials on TV. That's because he's in the advertising
business. These days his favorite commercial is the one about juicy-O company liked it so much he sent my father awhole crate of Juicy-O for our family to drink. It tastes like a combination of oranges, pineapples, grapefruits, pears, and banans. (And if you want toknow the truth, I'm getting pretty sick of drinking it.) But Juicy-O isn't my biggest problem either. My biggest problem is my brother, farley Drexel Hatcher. He's two-and -a-half years old. Everybody calls him Fudge. I feel dorry for him if he's going to grow up with a name like fudge, but I don't say a word. It's none of my business.
Fudge is always in my way. He messes up everything he sees. And when he gets mad he throws himself flat on the floof and he screame. And he kicks. And he bangs his fists.
The only time I really like him is when he's sleeping. He sucks four fingers on his left hand and makes a slurping noise. when Fudge saw Dribble he said, "Ohhhhhh......see!"
And I said, "That's my turtle, get it? Mine! You don't touch him." Then he laughed like crazy.

我贏得在吉米法戈生日晚會流口水。 的全部其他的家伙得帶回家在小的塑膠袋內的金魚。 我贏得他，因為我猜測在法戈太太的罐子裡有348粒果凍豆。 真的，有423，她稍后告訴我們。 仍然，我的推測是最近的。 彼得養兔場籌劃者是大的獲勝者﹗ 法戈太太宣佈。
最初我覺得不舒服，我也沒得到金魚。 然後吉米交給我一玻璃杯碗。 在裡面那裡在一些澆水和3。 一個極小的綠甲海龜正睡在最大的岩石上。 看他們的金魚，全部另一個是小伙子。 我知道他們正想什麼。 他們希望他們也能有極小的綠甲海龜。
當我從吉米的聚會走回家時，我命名我的海龜Drebble。 我住在25西第68大街。 它是一座舊的公寓大樓。 但是它在紐約市有最好的升降機之一。 到處有鏡子。 你能從每個角度親自看見。 如果你太疲倦不能站，有一間閣樓，給長凳裝上墊子管束。 升降機操作者的名字是亨利Bevelheimer。 他讓我們叫他為亨利因為要說的非常艱難的Bevelheimer。 我們的公寓在第12 層上。 但是我不必告訴亨利。 他已經知道。 他在大樓認識每人。 他那么聰明﹗ 他甚至知道我好和在第4 年級方面。 我顯示他立刻流口水。 我在一個生日晚會贏得他，我說。
亨利微笑。 你母親去驚訝。 亨利正確。 我的母親真的驚訝。 當我說，請時，她的嘴onened看我在吉米fargo的生日晚會贏什麼。 我持續我的極小的綠甲海龜。 我已經命名他流口水﹗ 那不是一個海龜的一個大的名字嗎？
我的母親扮個鬼臉。 我不喜歡他聞出的模式，她說。 你是什麼意思？ 我問。 我沿著接近于他處理好我的鼻子。 我沒聞出別的，除了海龜。 流口水象海龜一樣聞出，我想。 嗯，他應該。 那是他是的﹗
並且我將不也照顧他，我的母親補充說。 當然，你不，我告訴她。 他是我的海龜。 並且我是將要改變他的水並且清理他的碗並且喂他和所有那的那個人嗎？ 她問。 是的，我說。 並且甚至更多。 我將要保證他愉快﹗
這次我的母親製造怪的噪音。 象一陣呻吟聲一樣。 我去我的bedrrom。 我放在我的碗柜之上流口水。 我努力寵愛他並且告訴他他將是與我的愉快的leving。 但是它對寵物不容易一個海龜。 他們不柔軟和毛皮，他們不舐你或者任何事情。 仍然，我最後有我自己的寵物。 過后，當我坐在dinne桌子旁邊時，我的母親說，我聞出海龜。 彼得，去擦洗你的手﹗
一些人可能認為我的母親是我的最大的問題。 她不喜歡海龜，她總是告訴我擦洗我的手。 那不意味著剛剛流動他們在水下。 擦洗表明我應該把我手使用肥皂並且摩擦在一起。
然後我必須沖洗和弄干他們。 我現下應該知道。 我已經聽到它足夠﹗
但是我的母親不是我的最大的問題。 既不是我的父親是我的父親。 他花費許多時間看電視廣告。 那因為他在廣告過程中
商務。 最喜愛商業的這些天他那個大約他寄給我們的家庭喝的我父親awhole 多汁O的柳條箱的喜歡它那么多的多汁O 公司。 它嘗起來好像橙，鳳梨，葡萄柚，梨和banans的結合。 (你想要toknow事實如果，我相當厭惡喝它.) 但是多汁O也不是我的最大的問題。 我的最大的問題是我的兄弟，farley德雷克塞爾籌劃者。 他2 和半歲。 每人打電話給他捏造的話。 如果他將要象捏造的話一樣用一個名字長大，我為他感到dorry，但是我不說一句話。 這與我無關。
捏造的話總礙我的事。 他搞亂他看見的一切。 並且當他發狂時，他扔在floof和他screame上平的他自己。 並且他踢。 並且他猛擊他的拳頭。
唯一的時間我真的象他一樣是他睡的時間。 他在左手上吸4 只手指並且製造咕嚕咕嚕地喝的噪音。 當捏造的話看見時，流口水他說，"Ohhhhhh ......看見﹗ "
並且我說，"是我的海龜，得到它？ 我的﹗ 你不接觸他。 "然後他象發瘋一樣笑。Source(s): 字典
