But after they tore up all the files, the mayor gotrid of the predators, and soon the squirrels were back. Thehardware store humanely trapped the squirrels and set themfree outside town. But three days later, the squirrels climbed back in. Only the church came upwith an effective solution. They baptized the squirrels and made them members. Now they seethem only on Christmas and Easter.

  镇里有三座建筑物被松鼠占领了--市政厅、五金店和教堂。市政厅引进了一些猫。但这些“猎手”撕毁了文档,于是它们也就被市长请出了市政厅。而很快,松鼠又回来了。五金店捕捉到松鼠后,施与怜悯将它们在镇外释放了。但三天后,松鼠爬回镇里来了。只有教堂采取了一种有效的解决方案。松鼠得到洗礼成为了教众。现在,人们只会在圣诞节和复活节时才能看到松鼠。

  3. 好灯

  Good Lights

  A customer walked into our store looking for Christmas lights. I showed her our top brand, but—wanting to make sure each bulb worked—she asked me to take them out of the box andplug them in. I did, and each one lit up. "Great," she said. I carefully placed the string of lights backin the box. But as I handed them to her, she looked alarmed. "I don’t want this box," she saidabruptly. "It’s been opened."

  一位顾客进我们的商店买圣诞灯。我给她看了我们店里最好的牌子,但还需确认一下灯泡是否正常。她让我把灯泡从盒子里拿出来,然后通上电。我照做了。每一个灯泡都是正常的。她说:“非常好。”我小心翼翼地把这串圣诞灯放回盒子里。可当我把这一盒灯泡交给她时,她吃惊地看着我,突然说:“我不要这一盒,它打开过的。”
