Mr Baker was born in a rich family. He liked chatting（聊天）. His wife was lazy but his servants（佣人） could do all housework and he had enough time to chat with others.
One summer afternoon he was invited to his friend's birthday party. As soon as he got there, he began to chat. He kept on chatting at table. And all the guests left, but he didn t notice it and was still eating. His friend was worried.
The next morning, the man had been given a call that his sister would come to see him, He should meet her at the railway station. But Mr Baker didn't want to say goodbye to him and went on chatting, while eating the dishes（菜肴）.
Would you like a roast（烤的）bird, Mr Baker？” asked his friend's wife.
Sure，” answered mr baker.“ But wheres it？”
Look at the bird in the big tree outside, " said the woman. I want it to be your last dish. I'll cut the tree down, catch it and roast it for ou.
That,s a good idea！" said Mr Baker.But I'm afraid it'll fly away before you begin to cut the tree.
Don't worry about it, Mr Baker，"the woman said with a smile It's a stupid bird. It doesnt know when to leave.
