forefingers across their lips. This meant “you are not telling the truth”. They might tap their chin
with three fingers. This meant “my uncle”.

alphabet. In this way, they spelled out words. Some deaf people could spell out words at a speed

happens a lot, especially when we eat out. Once a dish comes，instead of lifting our chopsticks, we

When I have something difficult to do, I always ask my mum, "Could you help me?"
But she always says, "Do it yourself, dear." Then I get so sad. I think she is a lazy mother.
For example, one day, I invited some friends to my home. My bedroom was out of order.
Books were all over the table and the ground. I forgot to make my bed. So I asked my mother to
help me clean it. But she said seriously, "Do it yourself, girl." So I did it myself.
Because of my "lazy" mum, I am supposed to wash my clothes and clean my room. I have to
help my parents do some housework. I even have to go to the dentist by myself if I have a
toothache. It's really hard to do everything on my own, but I have learned a lot.
From now on, I understand my mother. It's her "laziness" that makes me clever and
hard-working. Just as my mum always says, "A lady can't be lazy or she'll be crazy. Work can
make you sunny."
