明智的成年人 2010 年 10 月 08 日 at 02:05

“爸爸,‘明智’是什么意思呢?”

七岁的儿子从学校回来,问正在给金鱼喂食的父亲。父亲头也没抬,继续把手中的鱼饲料投进鱼缸里,随口回答说:

“明智啊,就是能够理智判断自己或者别人的想法或者行动的那个意思。”

“那理智又是什么意思?”

显然这样的词汇过于抽象,超出了儿子理解能力的范围。父亲无奈地放下手中的鱼饲料,换了一个比较形象的说法对儿子解释:

“比如说吧,我喂给金鱼吃这个,”父亲指着金鱼饲料说,“但是我自己绝对不会去吃它,因为我不是金鱼。”

儿子若有所思地点头,似乎开始理解父亲的话了。父亲继续循循善诱地解释道:

“反过来说,我很喜欢吃土豆沙拉,但是我不会把土豆沙拉拿来喂金鱼。”

“为什么是土豆沙拉?”

“我只是举个例子,土豆沙拉也好,其他什么都好。总之我不会把我喜欢吃的拿来给金鱼吃——金鱼不是我,金鱼不会喜欢吃那些东西的。”

父亲停顿了一下以加强下面即将做出的结论的重要性,然后用语重心长的口气总结说:

“这样的做法就叫做明智。如果我吃了金鱼饲料,或者把土豆沙拉给金鱼吃,那就是不明智——现在你明白了吗?”

“明白了,爸爸,”儿子说,“那我现在能上楼去看卡通片了吗?”

“卡通片?那种东西对你有什么好处!”父亲换了一副面孔严厉地说,“先作完作业,然后看我给你买的《天才少年的成长故事》。”

儿子悻悻地上了楼。
看,成年人总是非常明智的。这一点七岁的孩子怎么可能理解呢?
