My parents run a small store in San Francisco, They always keep a big box by the entrance where people can donate(捐赠) something to our local food bank.

“For some reason, our food-donation box just isn’t filling up recently,” said my dad. “Maybe it’s time to think of a way to remind people about the food bank,” said my mom.

“What about a talent show?”rny dad suggested. “OK, ” said my mom.

So while my parents posted information online, we kids made some signs. My friend Mareya came over to help out.

“I’d like to do an act in the show, but I don’t know what to do,” I told Mareya. “Well , since the food-bank thing is about sharing,” said Mareya, “why not write a song about that?”

“Writing a song is not a problem,” I said. “But it’s hard for me to sing it alone!” She said. “What if we sang it together?”

Since Mareya has the world’s prettiest voice and also happens to play the guitar, I agreed. Mareya and I practiced and practiced, and I was feeling pretty good about our act. But the morning of the performance, Mareya called that she had a stomachache and was not in any shape to perform.

“There’s no way I’m going on without you,” I told her. “You’ve worked so hard,” she said. “You’ll be great!”

But great is the last word anyone would choose to describe my performance! Without Mareya’s guitar and voice to guide me, my song was completely in a mess. And I even forgot half the words.

Remember the sick, heart-racing, hot-faced feeling I was talking about? Well, that’s what I

was experiencing—more than I ever had before.

Once I was off the steps, my mom gave me a big hug.

“I want to disappear! I’ve never been so embarrassed(尴尬的) in my life,”I said. Ollie smiled. “I think you are really brave.”

Indi added, “I now know that you truly can survive(幸存) a lot more embarrassment than you think.”

3D printing is becoming more ancl more popular. We are now able to print things such as clothing, musical instruments and even cars. People and businesses are able to create the things they need very quickly and easily by using 3D printers.

But can you imagine printing food? Some scientists are trying to change the dining experience

completely by doing this. They hope that having a 3D printer in the kitchen will become as common as the blender or microwave. Scientists say that they are easy to use: you simply have to choose a recipe(食谱) and put the uncooked food“inks” into the printer to make the food you want. This means that it would be very quick and easy to create tasty and healthy meals.

Using 3D printers to create your meals would also be saving the environment, There would

be less need for traditional growing, shipping and packaging steps as food production would be a lot quicker and better. For example, tree leaves and insects could be turned into tasty products! Printing food could also help people who have a swallowing(香咽) trouble. They could program the printer to print softer kinds of their favorite foods so that they would not have difficulty

swallowing them.

However, some people think that a future of 3D-printed food would be a disaster. It could take away many jobs, including those for growing, shipping and packaging food. Imagine a world

where there was no need for farming or growing crops and the same tastes and structures could be printed from an uncooked “food ink”. Traditional cafes and restaurants might lose business, too. Also, there are worries about the healthy value of printed food: is it really possible to get what we need from food-based “inks” or something like that?

As we know, cooking and eating together with family and friends has long been a traditional

and enjoyable activity. It is hard to imagine a world where the pastime of cooking is dead and meals can be created at the touch of a button.
