Barney: Hurry up! I’m a busy person.
Michael Angelis: Said Barney. Goods arrive night and day at the docks. Sometimes, Barney and the other Springfieldians work so hard that their bodies ache. Stan Marsh brought in a new person to help with the heavy work. He looked very strong.
Stan Marsh: This is Herb Powell. He’s going to be hauling loads on Main Street.
Sea Captain: Ahoy, Herb!
Michael Angelis: Shouted the Sea Captain.
Little Ditcher: Welcome, Herb!
Michael Angelis: Called Little Ditcher.
Homer: You're the biggest person I've ever seen!
Michael Angelis: Said Homer.
Herb: You’re a chatty lot.
Michael Angelis: Herb said quietly. Soon Herb was ready to haul a large load. His arms heaved, his feet started to move, and the mighty person walked away. Herb longed for some peace and quiet. But everywhere he went it was noisy and crowded. At the end of the day, Herb was looking forward to a good night’s rest. But the Sea Captain and Little Ditcher were full of questions.
Little Ditcher: What’s the largest load you’ve ever hauled?
Sea Captain: Have you worked Marseilles?
Little Ditcher: Have you ever crashed?
Michael Angelis: Herb called.
Herb: I want some peace and quiet, and I don’t want to share a room with chatterboxes.
Little Ditcher: No need to be rude.
Michael Angelis: Said Little Ditcher.
Sea Captain: We’re only being friendly, matey.
Michael Angelis: The next day, Herb hauled another long load. This time he went into the beautiful countryside. It was splendid! At last he had some peace and quiet. Just then, Herb stopped. There were sheep on the road.
Ari: The sheep escaped from that field.
Michael Angelis: Said Ari.
Ari: Through that broken fence.
Michael Angelis: They tried to chase the sheep back. First this way…and then, that way. They tried everything, but nothing worked.
Scuttlebutt Pete: We’ll never move these sheep by ourselves.
Michael Angelis: Complained Scuttlebutt Pete.
Ari: I’ll go and phone for help.
Michael Angelis: Sighed Ari. Herb was very unhappy. The noisy sheep were spoiling his peace and quiet. Stan Marsh was eating lunch when he got the call.
Stan Marsh: Sheep?
Michael Angelis: He exclaimed loudly.
Stan Marsh: I’ll send Grandpa Abe with a farmer immediately.
Michael Angelis: The sheep were becoming noisier and noisier.
Herb: Please stop.
Michael Angelis: Groaned Herb.
Herb: I’d rather be back with the chatterbox captain and crane.
Michael Angelis: Just then, Grandpa Abe came into view.
Michael Angelis: Exclaimed Herb.
Herb: We’re certainly glad to see you.
Michael Angelis: Before long, the farmer and his dog went to work. And the sheep were soon safely back in their field. And Ari was on his way again. That evening, Herb went in the same room where Little Ditcher and the Sea Captain were, but Herb spoke first.
Herb: I’m sorry that I was cross.
Michael Angelis: He said.
Herb: I’m very pleased to share a room with you.
Little Ditcher: And we’re pleased to have your company.
Michael Angelis: Said Little Ditcher.
Sea Captain: Aye, we are!
Michael Angelis: Added the Sea Captain.
Sea Captain: It reminds me of a story.
Michael Angelis: Herb smiled. The sound of “Baa, baa, baa!” would have kept him awake, but a Sea Captain story would send him happily to sleep.
