在黄家雪梅、黄人豪、小杰商量爬长城的事情)

小杰:爸爸,你知道孟姜女的故事吗?

黄:当然知道了。

雪梅:你可不知道,自从她昨天上课的时候学了这个故事,现在逢人就问。

小杰:爸爸,既然你知道这个故事,就带我去长城玩儿吧,来北京这么久,我还没去过呢。

雪梅:老公,我正琢磨周末去哪儿呢?要不我们就带小杰去一趟长城吧。

小杰:太好了!爸爸,你说我们能不能找到当年孟姜女哭长城的地方?

雪梅:那只不过是个传说而已,你还当真了。

黄:来,小杰,我考考你,你知道孟姜女是什么时候的人吗?

小杰:让我想想,你难不倒我的,是秦朝的。

黄:对啊,而我们现在可以看到的长城主要是明代修建的。

小杰:这么说,传说里的长城和现在看到的长城根本就不是一回事儿。

黄:对,你真聪明。

雪梅:老公,刚才你说现在看到的主要是明长城,那么明朝以后就不再修了吗?

黄:基本上是这样的,从清朝初期开始便不再修长城了。

小杰:那为什么呢?

黄:想知道答案啊,你要先回答我一个问题,你知道为什么要修长城吗?

小杰:我们老师说是为了帮助人们打仗用的。

雪梅:说实话,我真怀疑长城在战争中能起多大的作用?

黄:在以前,长城的确对人们很有帮助,但到了清朝,它已经挡不住现代的枪炮了。

雪梅:哦,怪不得清朝的时候已经不再修长城了呢。

小杰:爸爸,你说长城有多长啊,有人说在月球上都能看见长城呢。

黄:想知道长城有多长,你去了以后不就知道了吗?

小杰:听你这么一说,我都等不及了,恨不得马上就飞过去看看。

黄:飞?哈哈,看你,都急成这样了。

小杰:好吧,现在开始倒计时。

雪梅:你还是先去写作业吧。离周末还有好几天呢。
