阴沉的早晨不想起床

早晨的天是阴沉的,阴沉的让人不想起床,许是昨天雷电交加的夜晚还没有缓过来。 无奈我还要上班,只能拖着沉重的身子慢慢的,从头开始用力抬起,一点点,内心的挣扎还在继续,第一次失败了。此时此刻才知道原来头真的很重,很重。时间顺着狭小的细缝一丝丝的溜走,不知不觉间,已经耗费了5分钟。起床的信念坚定了许多,力量也跟着大了起来。头抬了起来,但上半身的重量比头更沉重,这一次差点又失败了,好在想到一旦失败,下次还得从“头”再来,着实让人郁闷,干脆忍了忍,半个身子也起来了,但后背是佝偻着的,一点力气也没,软软塌塌的。 腿更像灌满了铅一样,我用胳膊帮助一条腿拉到了床边,又用两只胳膊帮助另一条腿也拉到了床边。就是这样的无赖之下,腿才不情愿的站立起来,一步步的挪向卫生间。不知道是不是刚才的帮忙耗费了太多的力气,胳膊也开始斗争起来,不肯去拿牙膏牙刷,不肯刷牙。我很生气,你们这样子怎么行?难不成还非要腿来帮你们?如何... more...

由蹲便引发的思考

前两天群里面发来一条消息,关于外国人做不了亚洲蹲的,不禁让我想起了一个之前考虑过的问题: 亚洲蹲的由来,其实就是我们国人的蹲便姿势,因为之前没有马桶这种装备,我们采用的都是蹲便姿势,记得我小时候农村的厕所还是那种有坑的,夏季上厕所最怕里面的生物,有绕着屁股飞舞的蚊子,还有坑里面不断蠕动的苍蝇之子。而北方冬季的晚上就更惨了,漆黑的夜里,还要把雪白的屁股暴露在这冰天雪地里,拉完一泡屎,感觉屁股都没有知觉了。 如果便便顺畅也就算了,赶上便秘的,那腿酸脚麻的感觉真的让人吃不消,时不时地要换一条腿来放松一下才行。完事以后需要好长的时间来缓解麻痹的腿脚。 现在的环境好了,家家户户装的基本上都是马桶了,拉屎都成了一件优雅的事情,拿着手机坐在马桶上,不会累,不会酸,慢慢的享受这时光。然而,我却独独怀念那蹲便的感觉,不消几秒,便顺溜溜的解决完了人生中的一件稀松平常却又大快人心的事情。马桶上就没那么逍遥了,往... more...

写作有什么用?

小的时候经常有老师布置的一项作业,就是写日记,到现在还依然清晰的记得,最上方是三部分内容:XX年XX月XX日 星期X 天气,下面紧跟着的就是以今天开头,对于白天流水账似的记录。一边写一边回想着白天自己的经历,自然而然的流水账,倒也不会觉得写日记痛苦。如今的我,对于有所感慨或者感觉事情比较有意义的时候还是会记录下来,依然有些流水账似的感觉,但多了不少自己的想法与感悟,偶尔回头读一下便可以发现自己思想上的成长历程,我也学着别人给一年后的自己写了一封信,很是期待,因为写完我就忘了当时写的什么内容。 写作有什么用? 记录的作用: 首先,很多人通过写日记这样的方式记录下当时发生的事情,什么时间,什么地点,有哪些人物一起做了什么事情,算是一种日常的纪实。如果虚构的事情便成了故事,故事情节再夸张一点,内容再拉长一些,便成了小说。 表态的作用: 还有一种方式比如某某明星出现什么绯闻之类的上榜新闻,就会有工... more...

朋友家做客后的方寻被自己震惊了

某年某月某日,方寻和老公王翔来到老公的同学陆飞家里做客,每每到了下班点的时候,地图上都是一路的红色,黄色,鲜有的绿色畅通。千寻琢磨着约好的19点半,尽管已经提前了一个小时,不知道会不会像以前那样其他人都到齐了,唯独自己迟到,尴尬的狠。 出门一路上了二环,不用开导航也就没有打开地图,却发现今天一反往常的通畅。居然只用了20分钟就到了,这提前的会不会太早了点,按响了陆飞家的门铃,陆飞一家人都在门口夹道欢迎,还好,已经有两位朋友到了,不早不晚刚刚好。 由于跟王翔的同学都不怎么熟悉,所以方寻便找到陆飞的老婆一起聊天,虽然也不算熟悉,但总归大家都是女人,扯一些女人专属的话题还是很简单的。陆飞的女娃已经上一年级了,看着很乖巧,手里还抱着一本书在看。不一会儿人差不多到齐了,晚饭开始了,十多口人围坐在一张小圆桌跟前,显得有些紧凑,好像大家的胳膊都神展不开了,不敢用太大的动作,怕碰到隔壁的人,所以只有就近夹... more...
