Later, Vivian began to feel sorry that she had been rude to her mom.
So she salted the soup, too.
Linda went into the kitchen and smelled the soup.
“It will taste better with some salt，” she told herself， so she added some salt.
Later， Lucy thought， “I really ought to help Mom.”
And she put some salt in as well.
Without tasting the soup， Monica quickly added some salt too. “This will make the soup so good，” thought Monica.
That night, the hungry guests sat waiting for the soup.
They could smell it, and it smelled good.
Then Mrs. Simpson put it on the table in front of everyone.
The children‘s godfather was there at the table.
Mrs. Simpson gave him the first dish.
He took a big mouthful of the soup.
Immediately his eyes grew wide and his face turned purple.
He grabbed a glass of water and drank it all.
Mrs. Simpson knew there must be something wrong with the soup.
So she took a sip. And she knew.
“Which one of you girls put salt into the soup？” she asked her daughters.
“I did， mom，” said all five daughters together.
“And I did， too，” said Mrs. Simpson helplessly.
