"Uncle,请您吃。"

我把那包加了蛋的通心粉放在他的身旁,也把剩下来的钱投入罐子里。

老人家看了看那包食物,又看了看罐子,慢慢地举起头看了看我,张开了嘴巴,露出几颗发黄的牙齿,很小声地说了一声谢谢。

我的眼晴突然湿了。

回到家里,我呆坐了半天,是喜是悲,我分不清。

喜?能把今天做的事归纳于善事。不必再天马行空,捏造虚构的故事,可以少长几根白头发。

悲?那老人家蹲在那里的样子已在我心里刻了难以抹掉的烙印。

蔡老师,您为何出这道作业啊?

I can't. That's why I'm impressed by anyone who can write like that :wink:

It was supposed to be a funny one, with a dig at the teacher. But somehow, as I went into more details abt the old man, the storyline becomes a little sad. Guess the recent thread on 孝道 affected me.

Sorry folks. Had wanted to make it Just for laughs.

It was funny when I related to hubby last night.

Anyway, ah boy needed to submit a compo on 一件善事 .

Came to me on Sat night, telling me he has no idea what to write and that he remembers P6 tuition has written sth very similar. Unfortunately, all pri sch stuff already thrown away.

He could only recall bits of info - mother got the son to buy sth from supermkt, son on the way saw a beggar, son gave begger all the money, son returned home empty handed, mother praised son for doing a good deed.

His inputs got my rusty brain thinking :wink:

Anyway, what is your take on the teacher giving such theme? Reasonable to expect a 2 pages compo from a student who has never done charity or volunteer work?

Anyway, in the end, hubby gave him some ideas based on flag day fund raising. We did not read what he wrote.

蔡老师,您为何出这道作业啊?

I had to back track to look for the earlier bits as I wasn't reading the pages closely. A good twist to the story from the third post onwards. The closing line is a surprise. Do tell us if teacher has any comments.

Edit to add: huh? So it wasn't by ah boy?!
