【刻木事親】

One spring day, a man named 丁蘭 was sleeping under and apple tree.
“ Mom? Dad?” he cried, but it was only a dream. He trudged up the hill with two baskets, one in each hand.
<3 ~ <3 ~ <3 ~ <3 ~ :) <3 ~ <3 ~ <3 ~ <3 ~ Once 丁蘭 arrived home, he sat outside and began to carve his parents. “ Uncle, what are you carving?” asked two boys. “ I’m carving someone.” “ Who?” “ My parents.” “ Why do you want to carve your parents?” asked the younger boy. “ I know!” exclaimed the older one, “ Since uncle’s parents died already, he’s carving them so he can see them everyday!” 丁蘭 smiled , “ Good boy, You are very smart.” “ I’m smart too!” “ You too.” He went inside the house and placed “his parents” on a table. Then he took his wife to it. “ Where are you taking me?” she asked. “ To pay respects to our parents.” She stopped in her tracks, “ Huh? Didn’t they die already?” “ Yes but,” 丁蘭 pushed open the door , “ I carved them so now we can pay respects.” They knelt down and his wife’s eye started twitching,” Mom, Dad, just let me use this technique to pay respects to you.” Then they bowed. When it was dinner, 丁蘭 took a tray and headed were his mother and father was. “ Why are you bringing food there?” asked his wife suspicously. “ To feed Mom and Dad.” “ Their made of wood, how can they eat.?” “ Mother, Father, it’s time to eat.” said 丁蘭 in the other room. “ In the kitchen, his wife gritted her teeth then she thouht of a evil plan. She went to the room where the wood figures stood and brought a knife. Smiling evily, she started digging a hole in her father in law’s forehead. But unexpectedly, it started bleeding. Gasping, she ran out of the room. <3 ~ <3 ~ <3 ~ <3 ~ <3 ~ <3 ~ <3 <3 ~ When 丁蘭 took the food tray for breakfeast, he saw that his father’s wood figure was crying, he thought, “ Is it her?” Stomping out side, he demanded why father’s figure was crying. When he found out he said , “ I can’t belive you don’t even know how to pay respects to your own father! I’m going to divorce you.” With that he slammed the door on and left his wife out side. THE END
