When I was young, one day my mother brought several big apples of different colors and sizes, among which there was a biggest red one that I was eager to get. At that time, my mum put all the apples on the table and asked me and my younger brother, “Which do you like?” I was about to say “the biggest one” while my brother took one step ahead and said what I wanted to say. My mum glared at him and blamed him by saying, “A good child should know to give the best to others instead of being self-centered.” My learnt a quick lesson and said to my mum, “Mum, I would like the smallest one. The biggest one should be left for my brother!” At hearing my words, my mum felt more than happy and kissed my cheek, giving the biggest apple to me as a reward.
小时候,有一天妈妈拿来几个苹果,红红绿绿,大小各不同。中间的一个又红又大,我非常想要。这时,妈妈把苹果放在桌上,问我和弟弟:“你们想要哪个?”我刚想说要最大最红的一个,却被弟弟抢先说了出来。妈妈听了,瞪了他一眼,责备他说:“好孩子要学会把好东西让给别人,不能总想着自己。”我灵机一动,改口说:“妈妈,我想要那个最小的,最大的留给弟弟吧!”妈妈听了非常高兴,在我的脸上亲了一下,并把那个又红又大的苹果奖励给我。 内容来自美文网
