一个事实,两个说法

据说朱元璋做了皇帝后,有个从前的小伙伴来到皇宫,想让朱元璋给他封个官或者赏赐点什么。为了让朱元璋勾起儿时的回忆,此人跪在朱元璋面前说道:“万岁,还记得吗?小时候,咱们都替别人放牛。有一天,我们在芦花荡里,偷来豆子放在瓦罐里煮,大家争抢着吃,结果罐子破了,豆子撒了一地,汤都泼在地上。你只顾从地上抢豆子吃,却不小心连红草叶子也塞进嘴里。叶子梗在喉咙,你憋得脸都红了,吓得大哭起来。我出主意叫你用青菜叶子放在手上一起吞下去,才把红草叶子吞下肚里的。。。” 当着文武百官的面,朱元璋怒不可遏,大喝一声:“哪里来的疯子,打出去!” 结果,那个人被赶了出去。另一个当年的小伙伴听说这件事之后,也来面见朱元璋:“万岁,还记得我吗?当年微臣随驾扫荡芦州府,打破罐州域,汤元帅在逃,拿住豆将军,红孩儿当关,多亏菜将军。” 话句句属实却不失体面,朱元璋龙颜大悦,想起了当年自己和小伙伴们同甘共苦,当即给此人封了个御林军总管。 Technorati Tags: 朱元璋 龙颜大悦 面子 事实 说法 Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn Pocket WhatsApp Telegram Line

Jeyaretnam – after 16 years. Incidentally, I was going through my collection of books and I realised… Read More »

皇帝果真大鱼大肉乎?

那倒未必。吃的道理很简单,桌子再大,酒菜再多,但一个人每餐能吃下肚的,也只有一个胃那么大的容量而已。 根据“满清十三朝宫闱秘史”:清德宗每食三膳,其馔有数十品,罗列满案。然离御座稍远之馔半已臭腐,盖连日以原馔供也;近御座之馔虽不臭腐,然大率久熟干冷,不能可口,皇上每食不能饱。有时欲命御膳房易一馔品,御膳房必奏明西太后,西太后辄以俭德责之,故皇上竟不敢言 Related post:四海困穷,则天禄永终 Technorati Tags: 皇帝 大鱼大肉 清德宗 御膳房 西太后 Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn Pocket WhatsApp Telegram Line
