The Moon In the Well

Posted by M ws On Tuesday, January 24, 2012 0 comments
One evening, the clever man, Huojia went to fetch some water from the well. To his surprise, when he looked into the well, he found the moon sunk in the well shining.


"Oh, good Heavens, what a pity! The beautiful moon has dropped into the well!" so he dashed home for a hook, and tied it with the rope for his bucket, then put it into the well to fish for the moon.

After some time of hunting for the moon, Haojia was pleased to find that something was caught by the hook.. He must have thought it was the moon. He pulled hard by the rope. Due to the excessive pulling, the rope broke into apart and Haojia fell flat on his back. Taking the advantage of that post, Haojia saw the moon again high in the sky.

He sighed with emotion, "Aha, it finally came back to its place! What a good job!"

He felt very happy and told whomever he met with about the wonderment proudly without knowing what he did was something impractical.

I am posting this story because it is reminiscent of what we see so often - a reminder of how some may be spewing lies so often that over time, even they themselves believe these to be facts and not fiction!
