    短期假日

      亚伦在一个城市的公司工作。他十分努力地工作,期望着休假。

      以前休假,他经常去海边。但有一年,他看到报纸上有一则广告:“领略乡村生活。在唯利屋农场度假数周,可享受:美味佳肴、新鲜空气、骑马、散步、垂钓。价格合理。”

      “这到是个好主意,”他想,“我要在唯利屋过上一个月,去享受骑马的乐趣,还要去散步、钓鱼。这肯定与坐在海边不同。”

      四天后,他回来了。

      “唯利屋发生什么事了?”他的朋友问他,“你不喜欢那里的乡村生活吗?”

      “乡村生活是很好,”亚伦说,“但是有一个问题。”

      “什么?”

      “第一天,一只羊死了。我们的饭是烤羊肉。”

      “新鲜肉最好。”

      “我知道,但是第二天,一只牛死了。于是我们吃的是烤牛肉。”

      “你真是幸运。”

      “你不知道,”亚伦说,“第三天,一头猪死了。我们就吃烤猪肉。”

      “每天吃不同的烧烤。”

      “让我说完,”亚伦说,“第四天,农场主死了。我不敢呆在那里吃饭了。”
