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。
