        Once there was a farmer who was always criticizing his wife. One day his wife got so angry with him that she said, “I’m going to work in the fields. You can do my work in the house. Let’s see how well you do it!”
  The man’s first task was to make the butter. The work soon made him thirsty, so he went down to the cellar(地窖) to drink some wine. While he was opening the barrel(桶), he heard the pig come into the house and knock over the butter dish. He ran back upstairs to stop the pig from doing more damage, forgetting to put the cork(软木塞) back in the wine barrel. As a result, wine spilled(溢出) all over the floor.
  By the time he had chased the pig out of the kitchen, it was lunchtime. He started to boil the soup, and then remembered that he had not fed the cow yet. There wasn’t enough time to take the cow out to the field, so he decided to take it onto the roof. There it could eat the grass that grew among the tiles (瓦片). It wasn’t easy getting the cow onto the roof, but at last he succeeded. To make sure it didn’t fall off, he tied it to the chimney with a rope.
  He had just finished doing this when he remembered the soup. To get to the kitchen quickly, he decided to go down through the chimney. He tied one end of the rope to his foot and the other end to the cow. He had just reached the kitchen when the cow slipped(滑倒) and fell off the roof. The man was pulled back up the chimney and got stuck(卡住) there.
  When the woman came home, she saw the cow hanging in the air, so she cut off the rope. Then she entered the house, and saw the butter on the ground, the cellar flooded with wine and her husband upside down with his head in the soup!
  The man promised never to complain again if his wife would do the housework in the future.
