One day the parrot was not in its cage （笼子）. It was flying about the room. The man came into the room and saw the parrot, what are you doing？ "he said。
"What are you doing？ " the parrot repeated.
The man laughed. Then he went out to visit his friends That evening a thief （贼） came to the house. He walked round the house and looked into the windows there was no one at home. The thief broke the door and found some bowls and vases （花瓶 ）. He put them into a bag. Then he went into the bedroom. In the bedroom he found a gold watch, and found some money. He put these into the bag, too. He stole many things from the house and put them into his bag.
The bag was soon full. The thief put it over his shoulder（肩膀） and walked to the door.
