       An old story is told of a king in Africa who had a close friend with whom he grew up.The friend had a habit of looking at every situation that ever occurred in his life,whether positive or negative,and remarking,“This is good!”This Is Good - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室
 
  One day, the king and his friend were out on a hunting expedition.The friend was responsible for loading and preparing the guns for the king.The friend had apparently done something wrong in preparing one of the guns,for after taking the gun from his friend,the king fired it and his thumb was blown off.Examining the situation the friend remarked as usual,“This is good!”But the king yelled,“No,this is NOT GOOD!”The king was so angry that he proceeded to send his friend to jail.
  About a year later,the king was hunting in an area that he should have known to stay clear of.Cannibals(食人族)captured himand took himto their village.They tied his hands,stacked(堆砌)some wood,set up a stake and bound himto it.As they came near to set fire to the wood,they noticed that the king was missing a thumb.Being superstitious,they never ate anyone that was less than whole.So untying the king,they sent himon his way.
  As the king returned to his castle,he was reminded of the event that had taken his thumb and felt remorse for what he had done to his friend.Immediately,he went to the jail to visit his friend and told him what had happened.
  “You were right,”the king said.“It was good that my thumb was blown off.And I am very sorry for sending you to jail for so long.It was bad for me to do this.”The king said with guilt in his voice.
  “No,”his friend replied,“this is good!”“What do you mean by‘This is good’?How could it be good that I sent my friend to jail for a year?”the king was confused.
  “If I had NOT been in jail,I would have been with you.”
