輕快的鋼琴演奏,開放式的吧檯,服務生替每位客人個別烹飪食材,到了高級饗宴的尾聲,最後來的是文山包種茶,作為一個結尾,熱茶壺搭配著一杯冰塊,讓你能夠來一杯冰涼的冷泡茶。

我拿起茶壺,將熱茶緩緩倒入玻璃杯中,手的角度逐漸傾斜,就在茶壺裡的茶水要流光的時候,茶壺的蓋子順勢落下。當下,唯美的燈光、文藝的氣息,在輕快的鋼琴演奏間,瞬間形成了一個有趣的小插曲。當時,對面坐著三個妹子,閒聊著近期的生活,卻因為瞥見了我精彩的演出,而忍不住笑意,開懷大笑了起來。

在大台北的某個小巷子裡,你會發現,原來,不需要花言巧語、不需要精心策劃,逗妹子笑就是如此簡單。

晚上回家的路上,看到兩個學齡前的小朋友,在操場旁邊玩耍,姊姊穿著連身的洋裝,弟弟穿著一件T-shirt配上一件短褲。弟弟追著姊姊跑,就在弟弟快追到姊姊的時候,不小心絆到姊姊的腳,直接往前撲倒在地上,啪的一聲,在一旁目睹整個場景的我,都能感受到膝蓋的疼痛感,當下,他們的爸爸卻只說了一句:「就跟你們說不要跑來跑去了。」

我心想,在運動場都不能跑來跑去的話,還有什麼地方可以自由的奔跑。

Evening, on my way home, I saw two pre-school children frolicking next to the sports field. The elder sister was wearing a dress, and the younger brother was wearing a T-shirt and shorts. The younger brother ran after the elder sister. When the younger brother was about to catch up with the elder sister, he accidentally stumbled on the feet of the elder sister and fell forward face on the ground. I was passing through and saw the whole scene from the side. And I can imagine the pain in my knee. At the moment, their father just said one sentence: “ told you not to run.”

As I see it, if we can not run in the sports field, where can we have fun and frolic with freedom?

連續下了幾天的雨,中午從健身房離開,撐著傘走在回家的路上,經過熟悉的運動場,突然間,一陣雷聲巨響,卻又不像雷聲,感覺有某個巨型的物體掉落到地板的聲音,運動場響起了警報聲,我停下了腳步,環顧四周,發現運動場的行人也都停下了腳步,大家似乎都被嚇到了,此時,頭頂飛過一群野鴿,大家拿起手機,才知道,原來是地震速報的警報聲,而那聲巨響,可能是某個東西被震倒了,正在行走的我們並沒有感到劇烈的搖晃,於是大家又動起了雙腳,繼續走向各自該走的路。

It’s a rainy week. I left the gym at noon and walked home with an umbrella. Passing through the familiar sports field, suddenly, there was some big noise like thunder. The sound is like a giant object falling to the ground, and the sports field began to sound an alarm. I stopped and looked around, and found that the pedestrians in the sports field had also stopped. Everyone seemed to be frightened. At that moment, a group of wild pigeons flew overhead, and everyone picked up their smartphones and realized that the sirens were the quick alert from the CWB. And that loud noise might be something that was knocked down. We who were walking didn’t feel the violent shaking, so everyone moved their feet again and continue on their own life.
