(From my student Wendy Tai)
Once an old farmer took his aged donkey to work somewhere. The donkey fell into a dried-up well. The old farmer tried to get the donkey out of the well, but failed. Out of compassion, he decided to bury the aged donkey in the well, so the donkey will not suffer too much. He began to put soil into the well. The desperate donkey started to remove the soil out of his body. The more the farmer put soil into the well, then the donkey removed more. Eventually, the donkey was able to walk out of the well.
