Jhana File (11)

Let me explain the fifty-fourth Kanji character of the 80s for beginners, 「休」.
」=rest
on – yomi「キュウ」
kun – yomi「やす(む)
⊿6回死んだお婆さん
社員「婆ちゃんが死んだので会社を休みます」
上司「これで6回目だよね、君のお婆ちゃんが死ぬのは」
社員「はい、爺ちゃんと再婚すると皆すぐに天国に行くのです」
上司「警察に届けた方がいいんじゃないの」
Staff : I will take off from work tomorrow because my grandmother died.”
Chief :Oh, your grandmother has died six times up to now, hasn’t she?
Staff : Yes. Every time my grandfather got remarried, his catch soon went to heaven.
Chief : You’d better notify the police about that!
◇婆(ばあ)ちゃん=お婆(ばあ)さん= grandmother
◇死(し)ぬ=die, pass away
◇会社(かいしゃ)を休(やす)む= take off from work
◇再婚(さいこん)する= remarry
◇天国(てんごく)に行(ゆ)く(=死ぬ)= go to heaven, die
◇警察(けいさつ)に届(とど)ける= notify something to the police
*「休」は人が木の近くで休んでいる様子を表してる。
つまり、「イ」+「木」=「休」ということ。
「休」consist of「イ」and「木」. 「イ」means「人(person)」, and「木」means “tree.” So the kanji character「休」shows that someone is resting beside the tree.
