The Sweethearts

... Or, The Top and the Ball, which leaves (regrettably) less to the imagination.

I read three different translations of the final two lines of this story, and the clear winner is as follows:

"You get over it when your beloved has lain in a gutter and oozed for five years.  You never recognize her when you meet her in the garbage bin."
[Haugaard translation]
