國中英語基測出現過 word 的考題。

Dear Ann,

I am really worried about my daughter, Shirley. I don't know why, but she always thinks she is too heavy. She eats only a little rice and some vegetables. She refuses fish, beef and pork. "Cake" and "desert" are taboo words to her.

The problem is that she is NOT heavy at all. In fact, the doctor says she is skinny. But she still believes being thinner will make her prettier. I'm afraid she will get sick before she becomes any "prettier."

Worried father,

Joseph
