The Hated Potatoes

被憎恨的土豆

A kindergarten teacher decided to let her class play a game. The teacher told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag containing a few potatoes. Each potato will be written a name of a person that the child hates, so the number of potatoes that a child will put in his/her plastic bag will depend on the number of people he/she hates.

一位幼儿园的老师决定让她班上的学生做个游戏。老师要求班上的每个孩子带一个塑料袋来,并在袋子里装上几个土豆。因为每个土豆上都要写一个他们所憎恨的人的名字,所以,孩子们会往塑料袋里放多少个土豆要看他有多少个憎恨的人。

So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name of the people he/she hated. Some had two potatoes; some three, while some had up to five potatoes.

于是,到了这一天,每个孩子都带来了一些土豆,上面写着自己憎恨的人的名字。有的带了两个土豆,有的三个,有的则足足带了五个。

The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes in the plastic bag wherever they go (even to the toilet) for two weeks. Day after day passed by, and the children started to complain due to the unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes they were carrying.

然后老师告诉孩子们:两周之内,他们无论去哪儿(甚至是去洗手间),都要随身带着自己的那袋土豆。一天天过去了,孩子们带的土豆腐烂了,发出难闻的气味,他们开始抱怨起来。

Those children having five potatoes really began to feel the weight of the heavier bags. After two weeks, the children were relieved to hear that the teacher had finally ended the game. The teacher asked "How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you for two weeks?"The children let out their frustrations and started complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go.

那些带着五个土豆的孩子开始真切地感受到袋子变得越来越沉。两周过后,当老师终于宣布游戏结束时,孩子们个个如释重负。老师问道:“你们整整两周把这些土豆带在身边,感觉怎么样?”孩子们纷纷发泄自己的不满,开始抱怨自己无论去哪儿都不得不经受带着这些又重又臭的土豆所带来的麻烦。

Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game. The teacher said: "This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody inside your heart. The stench of hatred will contaminate your heart and you will end up carrying an unnecessary burden with you wherever you go. If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just two weeks, can you imagine what a burden it would be to have the stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime?"

这时,老师给孩子们讲述了这个游戏背后的意义。老师说:“这正是你内心装满了对别人的憎恨时的情景。憎恨所发出的恶臭会污染你的心灵,结果无论你走到哪里,都要背负着一个不必要的负担。如果你对于土豆腐烂的气味连两个星期都忍受不了,那么你能想象得 到,假如一生都让憎恨的恶臭充塞自己的心灵,那将会是多么沉重的一个负担吗?”
