The Fox Caught In The Tree Trunk 困在樹幹的狐狸

2

Once day, there was a hungry fox that was looking for something to eat. He was very hungry. No matter how hard he tried, the fox could not find food. Finally, he went to the edge of the forest and searched there for food. Suddenly he caught sight of a big tree with a hole in it.
Inside the hole was a package. The hungry fox immediately thought that there might be food in it, and became very happy. He jumped into the hole and saw sandwich and fruit in it!
An old woodcutter had placed the food in the tree trunk before he began to cut down trees in the forest. That was his lunch.
After the hungry fox happily finished eating, he felt thirsty and decided to leave the hole for some water from a spring nearby. However, no matter how hard he tried, he could not get out of the hole. For the fox had eaten so much food that he became too big to go through the hole!
The fox was very sad and upset. He told himself, “I wish I had thought thoroughly before jumping into the hole.” Yes, this is the result of doing something without thinking thoroughly first.
解 說
某一天,有隻飢餓的狐狸到處找吃的東西。但無論牠多麼努力,狐狸都找不到食物。最後,牠走到森林的邊緣搜尋食物。突然間,牠看到一棵大樹有個洞。
洞內是一個包裹。飢餓的狐狸立即想「裡面可能有食物」,並且變得非常高興。 跳進洞裡打開包裝時,牠看到了三明治和水果!
一位老樵夫把食物放在樹幹裡,然後開始砍伐森林裡樹木的工作。這是他的午餐。
在飢腸轆轆的狐狸愉快地吃完之後,牠感覺口渴,決定去附近的湧泉喝一些水。然而,無論怎麼努力嘗試,牠都無法從剛剛進來的樹洞出去。因為狐狸吃了太多食物,體積變得太大了!
狐狸非常傷心又沮喪。牠自言自語:「真希望我在跳入洞之前,能深思熟慮。」沒錯,這是做事不先思考的後果。
