Penguin=Trouble  
 So I was pedaling down the street the other day when this funny looking pedestrian crossed the street in front of me. I thought this kid was going to get penalized by the cops for sure since he was swinging back and forth like a pendulum. Well, I couldn't peel my eyes off this kid when I crashed into one of our patrons. Her pearls went flying everywhere like pebbles over the road that had recently been paved. As I got up off the road I paved the way through the crowd to retrieve her pearls.
  When I heard a funny peep I looked up to see that the kid was a penguin!! How I missed that, I'll neverknow, but I'm sure the other messenger boy will peg away at me untill they take me off the payroll or something. Anyhow, the penguinpecked me on the cheek like a kiss and then sat down on my bag like he was patronizing me from the top of some perch. I'm not one to hold grudges so I reached into my bag and pulled out some peanuts. As I peeled open the bag someone threw a couple coins down into my hat, which I had dropped. They must have thought I was peddling the penguin for money!
  Well, right then and there I reached down, picked up that money and pegged the person in the back of his head. He turned around and started chasing me. Naturally I ran and now my case in court is still pending.
  But I never found out what happened to that penguin. I hope he made it back to his home on some ocean peninsula. I wouldn't want him hanging around the city much longer. He sure got me into trouble!

企鹅=麻烦   
那天我正在街上骑车,突然有个样子古怪的行人从我面前穿过马路。我心想这个小家伙肯定要遭警察了,因为他像个钟摆一样晃来晃去。我无法把视线从这个小家伙身上移开,就在这时我撞到了我们一个老主顾身上。她的珍珠小圆石一样撒满了最近才铺好的路面。我加快速度在人群中为她开了一条让她捡回珍珠。
  听到一声奇怪的吱吱声,我抬头发现小家伙原来是只企鹅!!我永远也无法知道我怎么就没有注意到他只不过是只企鹅,但是我确信其他送信男孩会一直抓着我不放,直到他们把我从在职人员名单上拿下来或是怎么的。不管怎样,企鹅像亲吻一样在我的脸上轻轻了一下,然后就坐在了我的包上,就像从某个高处以高人一等的态度对待我一样。我不是个怀恨的人,所以我把手伸进包里掏出一些花生来。在我打开包的时候,有人往我的帽子里扔了几枚硬币,因为我把帽子掉在了地上。他们一定以为我在拿企鹅叫卖!
  就在此时此地我弯腰把钱捡了起来朝那个人的后脑勺去,他转过身来开始追我。我自然是跑掉了,现在我在法院的案子还悬而未决
  但我一直没弄清楚企鹅的下落,我希望他成功地回到了某个大洋半岛他自己的家,我不希望他在城里做更多的逗留。他肯定是给我带来了麻烦! ?
