The Animal School

Dr. R. H. Reeves

原文:

Once upon a time the animals decided they must do something heroic to meet the problems of a “New World”, so they organized a school. They adopted an activity curriculum consisting of running, climbing, swimming and flying. To make it easier to administer, all animals took all the subjects.

The duck was excellent in swimming, better in fact than his instructor, and made excellent grade in flying, but he was very poor in running. Since he was low in running he had to stay after school and also drop swimming to practice running. This was kept up until his web feet were badly worn and he was only average in swimming. But average was acceptable in school, so nobody worried about that except the duck.

The rabbit started at the top of the class in running, but had a nervous breakdown because of so much makeup in swimming.

The squirrel was excellent in climbing until he developed frustrations in the flying class where his teacher made him start from the ground up instead of from the tree-top down. He also developed charley horses from over-exertion and he got a C in climbing and a D in running.

The eagle was a problem child and had to be disciplined severely. In climbing class he beat all the others to the top of the tree, but insisted on using his own way of getting there.

At the end of the year, an abnormal eel that could swim exceedingly well and also could run, climb and fly a little had the highest average and was valedictorian.

The prairie dogs stayed out of school and fought the tax levy because the administration would not add digging and burrowing to the curriculum. They apprenticed their children to the badger and later joined the groundhogs and gophers to start a successful private school.

隱性壓抑

Posted on

開學只有兩星期多點點,感覺就和開學半年沒有太大分別
生活依然枯燥,學業更是艱巨
每天放學三件事,上網看新聞,溫習,偷點時間打機
壓力不太大,只是感覺少了些什麼,壓抑了些什麼,失去了色彩,缺少了衝勁

朋友間的話題愈來愈狹窄,開口就是關於讀書
興趣什麼的,早已退居二三線,大家都收起來,還要各走各路
共同的話題已經所無幾,亦失去了討論那些事熱情
沒有什麼好分享的逸事,或是說根本就已經不知道可以分享什麼,有什麼可以分享
亦或許是我本身就是個沉默而且「鈍感」的人,找不出什麼話題,不知道應該說些什麼

考試年份,生活真是沒什麼兩樣
