Freakyqi ,thanks for yor helpful corrections.~I am sure it's of great help to me~~~

You said above you wanna call me  "wiggles", but i wonder if i know the exact meaning of this word. Does it mean swing? If you like , of course you can..

By the way, why not keep trying to write some here in Chinese? Make youself more brave, and put aside any
formality and do not care what other's think of you. Some chinese including me here will like to help you improve your chinese.

Genius at Work
天才在工作
Henry Ford didn’t always pay attention in school. One day ,he and a friend took a watch apart.
Angry and upset, the teacher told him both to stay after school. Their punishment was to stay until
they had fixed the watch. But the teacher did not know young Ford’s genius. In ten minutes, this
mechanical wizard had repaired the watch and was on this way home..
Ford was always interested in how things worked. He once plugged up the spout of a teapot and
placed it on the fire. Then he waited to see what would happen. The water boiled and, of course,
turned to steam. Since the steam had no way to escape, the teapot exploded. The explosion
cracked a mirror and broke a window. The young inventor was badly scalded
Ford’s year of curiosity and tinkering paid off. He dreamed of a horseless carriage. When he
built one, the world of transportation was changed forever.
亨利.福特在学校里常常心不在焉。有一天,他和一个小朋友把一块手表拆开了。老师很
生气,让他们放学后留下来,把表修好才能回家。当时这位老师并不知道小福特的天才。只
27

用了十分钟,这位机械奇才就把手表修好,走在回家的路上了。
福特对各种东西的工作原理总是很感兴趣。曾有一次,他把茶壶嘴用东西堵住,然后把茶
壶放在火炉上。他便站在一边等候着会出现什么情况。当然,水开后变成了水蒸气。因为水
蒸气无处逸出,茶壶便爆炸了,因而打碎了一面镜子和一扇窗户。这个小发明家也被严重地
烫伤了。
多年后,福特的好奇心和他的动手能力使他得到了回报。他曾经梦想着去制造一辆无马行
进的车。他造成了一辆这样的车后,运输界发生了永久性的变化。

Don't worry wiggles, it's just a silly cute name, it doesn't mean anything bad. When I see wygls, that's what I say in my mind, it's like the word "wiggles". It doesn't quite mean swing... hmm.... a child wiggles in his seat in school when he doesn't sit still. A worm wiggles. It's like you can't sit still so you try to get away a little bit.

That Henry Ford essay is too hard for me!

Here's my try at Chinese, and it's true, it's really what I did today:

今天 在纽约 我去看了一个"新年快乐" show. 他们有很多different performances,
我喜欢"梅花"(a dance) 和 一个鼓performance. 我也喜欢一个  performance?
skit? act? 有一条中国红龙.
我儿子也去了. 他要一瓶可乐, 可是US$4!!!! 太贵了! 因为我们在expensive/fancy place,
他们charge us more! (it would be $1.25 where we live)

我们都很喜欢the show.
我告诉我儿子"你也该喜欢那瓶可乐!"
  
I am not rich.  :L

Boy that took a long time for me! (the chinese up there^^)

I'm taking your advice, wiggles. You said:
(this is how I would say it)
By the way, why not keep trying to write here in Chinese? Be more brave, put aside any
formalities and don't worry about what others think of you. Some chinese here, including me, would like to help you improve your Chinese.

or "...will be glad to help you improve your Chinese."

I was a brave little girl up there!
When I was writing it, I felt like this:
But now I feel like this:
I am not rich.  :L

Now let me show you how i write your Chinese if it were me writing.

今天,我在纽约看了一个叫做“新年快乐”的节目,这里有各种各样的表演。
我喜欢梅花舞和一个击鼓的节目,我还喜欢一个节目,在里面有一条中国龙。
我儿子也去了,他要了一瓶可乐,但是太贵了,4美元!!!因为我们是在繁华地区。
