他上大学交了个男朋友,他们是大学同学,不是一同个系,但是他们上了共同的选修课,他们会在课上传条,或者在某间会两个系都会共同用到教室的课桌里留下一些隐秘,只有两个人知道的小记号。那种不为知之的小快乐。

大三开始他们在学校附近租了一间便宜个的小两居一起生活,他们一起打选家具软装,一起做饭,一起去上课。

大学毕业后他男朋友去了一家挺大的外商业公司做,且做得非常好,而他去当了兵。

他退伍后他男朋友说,不如我们一起开一个小公司,因为他在外商公司工作过程中认识不少客户,也积累了不少经验。

于是两个人就一起做起了小公司,开始有点艰难,不过他很会用人脉关系又擅长交际,而他男朋友是个湖南人很会做饭,又很会打理财务。

慢慢的小公司越做越大,从两个人做到十几个人。他跟一个漂亮的女客户一起出差去印尼,两人就上床了,过了几个月那个女客户说她怀孕里。那个女客户是公司的大客户,大家里也挺有钱,他的妈妈也总是在催他结婚,他想:也许有个孩子也不错,得到一个好的太太可以少奋斗10年。


本来他和他男朋友的计划是做到40岁,两人就退休然后环游世界。可是梦还没有完成他们就分手了。

他男朋友很好说话,某一天一声不响的收拾东西离开了,只给他留下了那个使用多年的饭盒。

望着空空的饭盒,他想:以后他再也不会给我做饭了。


其实他跟他妻子在一起也并不快乐,他总带着愧疚和自责,心里是有一个地方空落落的,就如同那个空空的饭盒,没几年他们就离婚了,妻子把孩子带走了。

离婚后他很颓废,生意也就乱七八糟无心打理,后来欠了一屁股债,在这个时代做生意失败的人很多,这些失败的人通常会选择去开滴车,因为还是自己做老板。

但开滴车有一点不好,常常会碰到以前认识的人,那些人上车会打招呼,下车还会多给一些钱,这让他觉得尴尬。

有一天他在机场趴活,正巧遇上了以前的男朋友。这些年来他男朋友没有怎么变,很商业精英的打扮。他的第一反应是把车上的车牌拿掉,因为那上面有他的名字。

他男朋友上来直接说了目的地,他低着头不说话不想让他认出来。

他男朋友一上车就开始打电话。他第一个电话打给他的妈妈,提醒妈妈要吃维他命丸,不要一直打牌在桌子前坐太久。第二个电话打给他的澳洲的公司,说飞机已经落地了,交代下属要做什么事。然后打给他在家里的阿姨说他什么时候回去要买什么东西。最后一个电话,打给他们共同的朋友,说他回来了,来这里出差,不久就要回去,想看看朋友,叫朋友带着小孩来聚一聚。结果地方就到了,他男朋友下了车。

他想:还好,他没有认出我来。

谁想下车后,他男朋友敲了敲车窗,示意他把窗户摇下来,他盯着他看,说:我都已经跟你讲过我自己,这些年来人生的变化,而你,连HELLO都不想跟我说一声吗?讲完就走。




——这是之前看到的一个故事,忘记了是从哪本书看到,情结具体也记不太清楚了,只记得最后的结尾,人生真让人唏嘘。

A Girl for Walter

AMERICAN STORIES - A Girl for Walter

Written by Theodore Jacobs
Now, the Special English program AMERICAN STORIES.

Our story today is called "A Girl for Walter". It was written by Theodore Jacobs. Here is Shep O' Neil with the story.

We never knew what Walter was, we called him an idiot. We called it that without knowing if he really was as foolish and stupid as an idiot. Walter worked for a food store. He carried food to the homes that ordered it on the telephone. When we saw Walter coming down the street, pushing his four wheel wagon filled with food, we knew we would have fun. We stopped playing our games and followed him. We always saw him coming. He wore the same cloth every day. A brown hat, green shirt opened at the neck, and a pair of gray pants. We recognized the way he walked too, long slow steps with stiff legs. We followed him down the street, try to walk as he did.

Often, we would try to pull his hat off and see how funny he looked. Walter did not seem to be troubled by our words, except when we talked about girls. When one of us asked him how his lover like was, or said "Hey, Walter, I hear a beautiful woman is looking for you." He was get very angry. He would push his food wagon with one hand and try to capture one of us with the other. If he caught one, he held him close to his face and shouted in a loud voice. "I am going to get a girl. I am going to get a girl." Sometimes, he would say it again and again even when we get tired making fun of him. He would walk down the street shouting to himself. "I am going to get a girl."

Walter did not bring food to our house, mother was afraid of him. She went to a different store and bought the food home herself. When grandmother came to live with us, this changed.

Grandmother liked all sorts of people. She was interest in people no one else loved. During her life, she had made friends with men who drank too much, women who ate too much, and people who were just very lonely. Grandmother worked with church groups for many years but finally stopped. I think she could not work with them because she did not agree that it was right to try to change a person.

Grandmother liked people for what they were. If she knew a man who drank too much, she would not tell him to stop drinking. She would tell him how to drink and still be a gentleman. Once, she wrote a book on ten different ways to drink, and still act as if you had not had a drink. The important thing to grandmother was that things were done well in the right way and with control.

When grandmother learned about Walter, she told my mother she wanted Walter to bring the food to the house. Mother, of course, was strongly against it. She thought all sorts of strange things would happen. She did not trust Walter. But grandmother simply said, "Oh pooh, you are forty two years old, Sarah." And then she telephoned to the people at the food store and told them to let Walter bring the food.

Walter and grandmother became friends. The first time, he came to the house. He told grandmother he was going to get a girl. Grandmother seemed pleased, and told him how nice it would be. She said the trouble with young man today is that they do not know how to win a girl's heart. "You must be honest", she said. Walter just stood there and listened. Grandmother then told him how her husband won her heart. She told him about her marriage and the great love there was between them.

As he listened, Walter made funny faces and moved his mouth from one side of his face to the other. When she finished her story, she asked Walter where he met his young ladies. Walter did not say anything.

"I can understand how difficult it is for young people to meet these days." Then she said in a low voice, "If you meet a nice young lady, Walter, do you know how to act?"

"What? No, I don't" Walter said.

"Well, you should." Grandmother said, and she told him how.

Walter and grandmother became very close. Every time he came with food, she had a talk ready for him. It was funny to me, but to Walter and grandmother was serious.

Later, she began to read books to Walter, a little from a book each time he came. The first book was called "How to dress when you go out with a girl?" The next book told how a young man should act when he meets the girl's mother and father. Walter seemed to enjoy readings at least he listened. He would stand next to the wall and wrinkle his nose. If grandmother expected more from Walter, she never showed it, she continued reading to him.

As time past, Walter listened harder than before. He never took his eyes off grandmother as she read. When she smiled, he smiled too. When she was serious, Walter became serious. She read about the problems of early friendship. "How to become better friends and how to decide your girl is the right one to marry."

Grandmother was almost finished reading one day, when Walter stopped her.

"Know something Mrs. Gorman, I have a girl."

"How wonderful?" grandmother answered.

"I really do, a girl like you always talking."

"Isn't that wonderful? Where did you meet her?"

"A friend helped me."

"Isn't that exciting, tell me about her, is she nice?"

"I like her very much."

"Well, she must be. What's her name?"

"I forgot. That's something. I told her my name was Walter."

"Would you kind her and a gentleman?"

"All the time, I told her the nice thing."

"I am proud of you, Walter, is she pretty?"

Walter did not answer. He told again how he met her. It seemed to me that he had to say a thing more than once or no one would believe them.

"She must be nice," grandmother said. "I hope you comb your hair and wear a coat when you see her. And you must promise me that you will always be a gentleman."

After that, grandmother read "How to Choice the Right Wedding Ring and How to be Prepare for Marriage?" She seemed to be in a hurry as if Walter might get marry before she had finished his education. Nothing mother said helped. Grandmother continued to teach Walter. The next book she read to Walter was "How to love your wife?" Soon after grandmother finished reading it, she died. Just like that. It was difficult to believe. It was only after I saw them lower her body and cover it that I knew she would not come back.

The morning after she died, Walter came with food. Mother went to the door. "Mrs. Gorman is dead" she told Walter. "She died last night." Walter did not move at first, he did not seem to understand or he thought she was lying. He then tried to enter, but mother shut the door a little. "Can't you understand, she is dead, no one is here, she died last night, please do not come here again." Walter just stood there, his face white. Mother closed the door on him. She telephoned the food store and told them not to send Walter any more.

I did not see Walter again for a long time, I had forgotten all about him and the days that grandmother had read to him. Then one day, I saw him. He looked different, he was wearing a suit of cloth, the coat was old, and the trousers had been worn many times. He wore a white shirt and a necktie. I waited until he walked up to me, and I walked along with him. "Hello, Walter, do you remember me?" He turned quickly toward me, then smiled as he recognized my face.

"Oh, sure, hiya, how are you?"

"I am fine, Walter, how are you doing?"

"Thank you, ok. How are you doing?"

"Fine"

We walked a few steps in silence. Suddenly, I had the old feeling that grandmother was still alive and Walter was still coming to the house. Without thinking, I asked "How is your girl, Walter?" Suddenly, he was on me holding and tearing my shirt. He pulled me close to him and shouted "She is still alive! She is still alive!" His cry was loud and real. He pushed me away from him and I fell to ground, he ran down the street. As I get off, I could still hear him crying until his voice was lost among the sounds of playing boys.

如何写读书笔记

为什么要写读书笔记:

为了回看当时读这本书时候的想法。


如何写:

1、先写书名字:保证下次能找到即可;

2、正文部分:简单写一下就可以,不需要太在意形势上的东西,什么打印书品,好看的本子都不需要,只要方便记录即可。

原则:

1)写自己的东西,尽量少查阅相关书评,养成独立思考的习惯;

2)坚信自己的权威:自己是自己世界的主宰,即使是名著也可以吐槽,例如你的作者会如何把握故事走向。书喜欢的情况下读书笔记很难写,如果不太满意,很容易写吐槽,认知盲点,剧情太目瞪口呆都可以记录等等。

3)摘抄:没必要,记录页码即可,读书要快!写读书笔记的时候能找到就可以了,找不到也没事。

4)看读懂的部分:等写完都是笔记后在去查阅相关资料,这是一个打脸的过程,因为是知识储备,阅读量的关系造成的,不过也没关系,记录下来就好。

    

表白UP主,非常可爱,和通透了!


材料:活页本,胶带等


对于字不好的我来说,记录在网上也可以呀!
