陶者


       虽然已经是四月天了,然而没有了暖气,晚上屋子里面却很冷。夜晚的风很大,呼呼的刮着,北京的春天总是伴随着大风。两场雨过后,一夜的西北风将一白天积攒下的那点温度吹的无影无踪。盖了一个冬天的薄被子,这时候已经抵挡不住这最后一份寒冷了。只好将已经束之高阁的丝绒被子再取出来。


      
开奥运会了,奥运场馆周边的楼宇一概要粉刷一新。一队农民工来到了小区,他们开始动工粉刷楼里楼外。楼对面的墙下是一排自行车车棚,他们用尼龙布在两三个砖头柱子之间围住,这便成了他们的临时居所。半夜风声大作,在窗户上刮的呼呼作响,硬生生从缝隙中灌进来,窗帘一并轻轻地晃动着。风真大!起来拢一拢窗帘,将窗户再紧一紧。窗外的右前,漂亮的霓虹灯线条勾勒着的,便是在北京鼎鼎有名的七星摩根楼群。最靠近四环的龙头龙廓已经清晰可见,挺拔的楼体在黑啾啾的夜空下默默矗立。一闪一闪的电弧从楼层中射来,还有人在万籁俱寂的深夜忙碌着。


      
早晨起来,推开门发现楼道已经粉刷一新,有人正在用拖把打扫落下的灰点,粉刷时落下的石灰水在他的身上落下一片。等晚上回来时,遮在车棚一圈的尼龙布已经撤下,他们已经离开了。楼道已经很干净了,墙面刷的白白的,还留下未干的痕迹。七星摩根也差不多到了收尾阶段,做工的人已经有不少离开。平常那个离的不远的菜场能看到不少农民工的身影,这段时间少多了。到它彻底完工那一天,也是他们从这周围消失的那一天。


      
城市的繁华与他们无关!他们创造了这城市的许许多多房子,而他们在城市却不可能有房子。陶者的故事几千年来依然如故!大同的世界还只是理想。

陶尽门前土,屋上无片瓦。十指不沾泥,鳞鳞居大厦

小沃森自传

    对于自传性质的书籍,内心总有一些抵触心理。对于自己犯过的错误,人总不免要稍稍修饰,抑或用一点理由和借口来装裱门脸,然后再在脸上堆积出真诚的表情,拿出认真的语气来讲述事情的经过。毕竟,因自己的愚蠢与无知所犯下的错误,一无保留的剖析给别人看,只有少数的勇士才可以做到。

     读自传最有意思的事情,莫过于看到成功者性格中也有的巨大缺陷,巨人也有其难以逾越屏障。不会让人觉得他的成功无法企及,至少保有某种概率可能。让你从一个个人的的角度来看公司的发展,时代的变迁,世界的变化。因为是个人的主观角度,可能它并不完全是事情的所有面,但也正是由于主观,它也就有可能是你我若在其中的看事角度。

    读《小沃森自传》让我想起了由汤姆汉克斯主演的《阿干正传》。以个人的成长为叙述对象,来讲述美国社会从20世纪初至80年代末的方方面面。从美国30年代的经济大萧条,到60年代垮掉的一代;从计算机的最初诞生到IBM/360的辉煌;从二战的世界格局到肯尼迪遇刺身亡。所不同的是,一个人IBM的伟大开拓者,一个人智商只有80的傻子。

    成功与否,与性格也许并没有必然的联系。视野与气度更为重要!

极其清晰的航天飞机照片


    一个美国同事曾经供职于NASA,他跟我们共享了一些“奋进号”航天飞机上次执行任务时的照片。在这之前,我还从来没有见过这么清晰的航天飞机照片,不论是电视还是网络上。Enjoy it! 更多照片,点击这儿

回家

     我喜欢看discovery, 尤其喜欢里面的动物星球。非洲大草原上的动物传奇是最让我着迷的。数百万只角马在塞伦盖上奔跑,那场景让人惊叹。在两百年前的北美大陆上,也有相同的壮观景象。数百万只野牛在大平原上蹦腾,卷起的尘土遮天蔽日。

    然而,在这个星球上最壮观的动物迁移,却不是角马群,也不是野牛群,而是中国人的春运(人也是一种动物,高级动物而已)。计算春运的数量词不是百万,不是千万,也不是亿,而是十亿!据估计,2008年春运期间,全国交通总共将运送大约2,400,000,000(24亿)人次。基本上是将全国人来回搬两次。

    于是乎,每每这种时候,售票口排起了长龙一般的队;四处出击打探有能耐的票贩子电话;网上往下上蹿下跳寻找一张回家的票根;茶余饭后问候最多的是:今天你买到票了么? 会为一张票的意外获得而激动不已,也会为晚一秒钟打过电话而懊恼半天。然而,即使拿到了票,上了火车也有意料不到的事情发生。这个冬天一场大雪,让整个国家的运输基本处于瘫痪,数百万的人云集在大大小小的火车站,汽车站,飞机场。犹如角马群在湍急的河水前,不能前进一步。


     让数百万角马迁移上千公里的原因,是新鲜的青草和干净的河水。让几十亿中国人冒着严寒与拥挤,义无反顾的上路只有一个原因:家!很多人在城市工作生活多年,而到了年末却还是要追火车赶飞机。回家!家在哪里?家不是那一扇门里面的两室一庭,而是心里记挂的人所在的地方。它可以是豪华别墅,也可以是一间小窝棚。它让你觉得温暖,觉得自己属于那儿。很多在北京工作多年的人,却一直将自己归为“北漂一族”。“北漂一族”如浮萍,表面上长的郁郁葱葱,欣欣向荣,然而始终找不到可以札下根的地方。始终游离在上方,无法找到一个可以归属的根基。

    爸妈几年前退休后,他们在老家盖起一小院地方。想远离城市的喧嚣时,便回到这个小小的避暑山庄。夏天休假的时候,我喜欢回到乡下和他们在一起。呆几天就发现,农村基本上没有壮劳力,一问都去城市打工了,所留下的皆是妇孺老者。对于进城的乡下人来说,城市永远都是一间临时客栈,他们像浮萍,永远也札不下根,他们不属于这里。到了春节,“回家”是他们的愿望,也是他们所能作出的唯一选择。

    雪依然在下,道路依然堵塞。回家的心情是那样的急切,家就在前方,那里有自己爱的人和爱自己的人。如果有一天,这样疯狂的春运不再上演,我想,那一定是人们已经回到了“家”。有家在,这样的暴风雪之夜,谁还会外出呢?

想学英语?来Toastmaster!

    最近在参加公司组织的一个英语口语培训,从1月15号一直到5月15号,整整四个月,每周二3:30pm - 6:00pm。一个挺可爱的澳大利亚老头授课,说话不紧不慢,有着丰富的肢体语言,还挺有意思。这个培训的主要目标是,怎么样用地道的英语口语,表达和描述日常工作中的问题。其中最常见的方式就是针对与一个小问题,或者一个场景做一个两三分钟的演讲。比如说,介绍你的公司,你的工作等。

     其实,我始终觉得学习语言,是一个需要长久练习和实践的过程。短短的几个月培训,顶多也就是一个速成,应对考试可能还可以,对于学习和掌握一门语言不会有质的变化。我想这种培训的最最核心的内容是作为一个引子,对大家英语口语的提高,起到一个抛砖引玉的目的。而这其中所练习的东西和Toastmaster及其相似。一看到后面的练习题,做一个三分钟的演讲,一下子就想到了Toastmaster中的Table Topic。

    如果你抱怨没有一个好的学习英语的环境,如果你想提高你的英语口语能力,如果你想练习自己在公众面前讲演的能力。我强烈建议你来参加我们的Toastmaster会议。在这里你能听到精彩的讲演,在这里你能得到真诚的反馈,在这里你有机会让自己做的更好。只要你愿意,你就能得到你所要的成长与进步!

    我们的会议定期的在召开。每周四下午4:00pm至5:00pm, Wimbleden,  7F BJS05.

    你会来么?

写在2008的第一天

       将悠悠的照片放到电脑上,用picasa浏览,翻来翻去看到了200711日与阿玲一起去大钟寺的照片。看着各式各样的钟钮,记忆犹如压在箱底经年未穿的衣服,一下子被从最底层翻出来,而上面的褶皱褶皱都看得清清楚楚,历历在目。

       上午和久违了的几个朋友踢球,风虽然很大,但冬日的阳光却暖暖的晒着,让人很舒服。几年工作之后,各人跳到不同的单位,于是如洒落的石子一般,散落在偌大的北京城的东南西北。恋爱的恋爱,成家的成家。相聚一次,难!相聚一次,再踢一场球,就更难!休息的间隔,李宾看着旁边两个追着皮球跑的小孩子,半开玩笑半当真的说,哥几个加油啊,过几年带着小孩子们一起踢球。而那时我正在想,过不了几年悠悠也会像那孩子一样可以带着一起玩了。看来,我们这帮人要开始念“爸爸经”了?   

        2007年过去了,在我生命中最重要的几件事情都发生在这一年。和阿玲步入婚姻,紧接着悠悠诞生了。这应该是最重要而让人最值得记忆的两件事情。工作上也比上一年忙了,三年了,算是“老人”了,要承担的责任更多了。出过几次差,但总的来说都在办公室呆着。见客户感觉很好,有被需要感。和不同人打交道,总让人有所收获。而呆在家里最大的好处,就是能看着孩子一天天的变化,感触一点点的欣喜。最遗憾的事情就是没有尽早买下房子,而房价一天天高企。口袋里的钞票与现实中的房价不免让人沮丧。

       2008年来了,奥运的一年。这可能是一说到2008,第一个跳到人脑海中的。而我的2008呢?今年的总结,明年来做。

5. Your Body Speaks: Take care our children, and take care our parents

     I delivered my fifth speech in our Toastmaster meeting yesterday. I always feel very nervous before I start my speech. Don't know if that is true for others. To me, it seems that more time to prepare, more nervous. However, Once I start to present it, that feeling was gone.

    How about you?  Here is my speech content.

 

                Take care our children, and take care our parents

    I have a one month old baby boy. As parents, we need to take parent responsibility. Try our best to take care the little guy.

    Actually, the preparation work has started before he was born. We have prepared a bunch of stuff for the baby, such as diaper, cloth, milk bottle, baby milk, baby shampoo, baby lotion and so on. We thought we have almost gotten ready of everything which could be useful for him. However, my mother did not think so. She thought we were still young and no experience with how to bring up a baby. So, she delivered a package from my hometown where was over 1000km far from here, Beijing. The package contained what we have considered and what we have never thought about. That was a really big package. In order to take that package to the taxi, I have to ask somebody to help me. That is another story.

    Anyway, the baby came into our life soon. He was healthful, pretty and cute. He brings lots of happiness and excitement to us. One coin has two sides. He also brings lots of work for us. ;-)  The baby can't tell us his needs. The only communication way is crying. When he is hungry, he cries. When he is thirsty, he cries. When he wants to change the diaper, he cries again. He cries for any uncomfortable feeling at any time.     I have to struggle with lethargy in sleepless night.

    Bringing up a baby is not easy. Parents dedicate their time, energy, patience, and love to the children. They can remember every details for the children. What is his favorite food? What's kind of drink he like? What color he likes?, What's his intered in?  And try to understand his thought, his idea, his expectation. At this moment, I usually think of my parents. What I do today for my childr is to repeat what they have done when I was young. I recognized I had given too little concern to my parents. I don't know what is their favorite food. What they like and they don't like. I got  much love from them, but gave them little. That could be some kind of common phenomena for most of people. We gave much love to our children, but little to our parents.

    Last weekend, we took our son to hospital and gave him the vaccine injection. There are lots of young parents and their children. Usually, the mother took care the child and the father queued up and handled all the other issues. At the same time, I noticed there were many old people in the hospital. Comparing with the children, they are weak and lonely. Most of them was not accompanied by their children. They had to handle everything by themselves. Queued up to register, saw the doctor, then queued again to take the medicine. After they completed all those thing, they left by themselves. That was a weekend, I don't think their children are so busy that they have  no time to accompany with them to the hospital. However, the reality is the old come and leave by themselves.
   
    That could reflect a truth in this society that we took less concern to our parents than our children. We share the whole weekend with our children, but we could not spent one hour to accompany our parents. We worry about the flue to our children, but we could have forgotten to ask if our parents two week cold is OK now.  We  care about if our children are happy in the new school, but we could have forgotten to ask if our parent feel well in new city. Parents always mention to us, everything is fine. But, is that real true? They could have not told you they had gone to hospital for twice last week. They could have not tell you they  always lose their sleep in the night. They could have not told you their birthday is coming, they are eager to see you at that time. What we always can heard is everything is fine. Don't worry about us. Take care yourself!

     The children are still young, we have lots of time to share with them. But our parents are getting older and older. Comparing with our children, we do need to spend more time with our parents.

    Take care of our children, also take care of our parents.

生之喜


                                                       


       三年前小海有孩子时,我拍着他的肩膀说,羡慕啊,二十八岁就当爸爸,希望我二十八时也能当爸爸。


                                                       


       周五起床后,阿玲说半夜时肚子一阵阵的发紧,醒啦,半天也无法入睡,再后来似乎每半个小时,抑或四十分钟就会疼那么十秒钟。但似乎并不那么剧烈。


       “啊!难得是要生了?”我半笑着说。


       阿玲责怪我口气中似乎有一丝调侃的味道,难倒不该么?我惭愧的笑笑。她说的对,预产期不就是四天后么?何况那只是一个预测,而实际上,它应该是一个区间而非一个确切点。


       虽然早就知道悠悠就要来了,但终究还没有来,终究还在过两个人的世界,于是竟然有一丝不信那会很快成为现实。


       前一周妈从西安寄过来一大包小孩子的各式各样穿戴,甚至还有一堆尿布,在她的眼里,我们还是不够成熟,甚至于是不更事的孩子,这些事情是考虑不周,不可靠的,于是还是倾向于全权负责,大包大揽。让我非常意外的是妈给悠悠做的小衣服,小鞋子还有小枕头充满了浓浓的传统的陕西关中风情。而我竟然从不知道妈还有这么一手绝活。自己对父母的关心真是太少了,真是惭愧啊!


       吃早餐时阿玲感觉那种收缩的阵痛已经变的频繁很多,而且力度也大了不少。我决定留在家中照顾她。手机报来了,我翻看新闻,第一页是天气预报,20071123日,农历小雪... ...


                                                


       阿玲说这应该还不是要生的那种剧痛,虽说是疼,但还可以忍受。据说如果把疼痛分级,那种疼痛是最高级别10级。到中午的时候,她终于感到这种疼有点不能忍受了,看来如论如何该去医院看看了。


       医生检查之后让阿玲直接进待产室,我俩都有点蒙,没有想到一切来的会如此之快,都有点发闷。妇们都在待产室,而家属是不容许进去陪同的。我找了个空位,坐在焦急等待的人群中,产房的门口人们踱来踱去,而产房中的任何一点点动静都会引起人群一阵激动。产房的大门上贴着薄膜的窗脚被性急的人揭开一角,扒一只眼睛向里张望。每隔一段时间,就会有一个产妇和新生儿被推了出来,然后会有一群人簇拥着离开。


       看着表已经到了七点,我忍不住再一次拨阿玲的手机,她已经疼的不能流畅的通话,心中十分不忍,挂了电话,却觉得更不妥。整个是六神无主,不知所措。到了九点钟,产房外只剩下阿妈和我。每听到一声阿玲的叫喊,阿妈的眼睛就会忍不住又红一圈。而我在一旁一个劲的踱来踱去。


       本想在悠悠生了之后再打电话告诉远在西安的爸妈,不想让他们太担心,而他们竟然在这时打了电话过来,爸说他感到有点心慌,打电话问阿玲今天可好?事已如此,已经不能再对他们隐瞒什么了。于是姐姐,哥哥一个接一个打电话过来,所有人一切都揪着一颗心。


       这种时候时间似乎过的非常慢,隐约间我听到有孩子的啼哭声,但不太确切,凑到门缝边,把耳朵贴在门边,有好像什么也听不到。门的里面一瞬间变的好安静,这安静让人更紧张。


       又过了好一会儿,一个护士走过门来说已经生了,大人小孩都很好。我看见阿妈的脸上和我一样,有种如释重负的感觉,刹那间,充满了欣喜。又是好一会儿,阿玲被推了出来,双颊看起来白白的。让我又惊又喜的是她看到我后,冲着我打招呼,似乎此时需要安慰一下的那个人应该是我。老婆,你受苦了!

                                                       

       由于无法在待产室陪护,再次看到阿玲和悠悠的时候已经是第二天了。阿玲的脸色看起来已经有了不少血色,而悠悠静静的睡在她的身边。他看起来是那么弱小,似乎将他托起都会弄疼他。然而小生命的聪明是绝对超过大人的想像的,他会用哭声告诉你他想要什么,告诉你他感觉不舒服了,告诉你他需要被关注了。


       看着悠悠在自己的臂膀中满意的睡着,你会不由得想到眼前的这个小生命是多么的需要你的照顾与呵护啊,他是多么的依恋你。有一种化学反应在体内迅速变化,你会为他的一点点变化而欣喜,第一次响亮的啼哭,第一次似有似无的笑容,第一次允吸,第一次喝水,甚至第一次拉巴巴。


       半夜会条件反射般的在他的第一声哭闹中醒过来,麻利的给小家伙换上新的尿布,拍拍他让他睡熟,然后再将自己扔回被窝,重新拾起未做完的梦。然而,也会在这种时候辗转反侧半响也无法入眠,看看小床上的小家伙,有点不相信,自己也已经是为人父母了。然而这确实是千真万确的,像三年前的小海一样。


                                                       


       二十八岁,我作爸爸了!

4. How to Say it: Stop complaining , do something

    I am happy to finished my fourth project "How to Say it" in Toastermaster meeting this afternoon. Thanks Paul Lee for your feedback and grammatical check. Also thank my wife for she was the only audience when I did the rehearsal at home.  :-D
 

   My apartment is located in the middle of north fourth ring road and near JianXiang bridge. As you can see, it is not too far from my apartment to our office, TsingHua Science Park. However, believe or not, usually it take me more than 45 minutes in the journey. Moreover, about half the time will be consumed in the last stop. In the other words, it takes me more than twenty minutes in the last five hundred meters.  

    If you are familiar with the traffic around WuDaoKou, I believe you must have the answer. There are three intersections, one railway line and one subway station within five hundred meters in WuDaoKou. In addition, there are too many cars, too many people, too many stores and restaurants in this area. So, you can imagine the traffic in the rush time. Especially, when you try to arrive at the airport or catch a plane.  It drives you crazy.

    Almost everybody complains about the bad traffic. We heard of the pedestrians complain about the motor vehicle looks like a crazy mouse in the street. We heard of the drivers slang pedestrians looks like a blindman whatever the traffic light is. We scold the policemen not to manage the illegal taxi which parking around the subway station. We complain about any unfair event everyday. complain about the heavy pollution in the city. Complain about too much plastic garbage. Complain about the lack of love in our community. We complain about this and complain about that. We almost complain about anything.

    However, have you ever thought what we can do for it? What we can improve? And what we can help? Before we complaining, let's ask a question to ourselves. If I follow the traffic signal whenever I run through a crossing in the street?

    Several months ago, when the taxi which I took stop in the front of traffic light, I observed the pedestrians in my sight. People struggle with the traffic stream.  The intersection was in wild confusion. Only one lady who wear a red dust coat stood in the end of zebra crossing and wait. All the people is moving except for her. You can imagine how a beautiful picture at that moment. What  good example that lady showed for us. I will never forget that scene.

    If you observe the pedestrians in the street. You may note most of people will never follow the traffic signal. I really don’t think they do not see the traffic light or don’t know what does it means when the traffic light is red. The only explanation I can figure out is that those people have never been aware of it. When we complain about the traffic, we could never think about it is just due to the our own behaviors.

    You may suspect the individual behavior is that the critical fact for the whole traffic? OK! Let me tell you another story about an old man and his chopsticks. The old gentleman took his own chopsticks whenever he had a dinner in the restaurant,  and refused to use disposal chopsticks. People were curious and inquire about why? He said I want to do my best to do something for forest conservation, so I refuse to use disposal chopsticks. The others laughed at him. “Only one pair of chopsticks? Do you think you can help the forest conservation that only refuse to use one pair of chopsticks?” The old man responded peacefully. “Yes, I think I can’t. I am not a great person, I can not go into the action and all the others follow me.  I am a common person. What I can do is to try my bese to request myself to do the right thing.”

    I believe that is right what we are lack of. Only complaining can’t solve any problem. Except for conflict and antagonism, you can’t get more. If you really hate it, why not do something for it? If you complain about the illegal taxi around the subway station. Please never take it any more, even you are late. If you complain about the plastic garbage, please take your own  bags when you to the market. If you are a driver, please wait for the pedestrians. If you are a pedestrians, please follow the traffic light.

    Don’t just talk, do it. Don’t just complain about it, just take your responsibility. Let's stop complaining,  do something.


3. Get to the Point: Sometime, success is bad

    I delivered  my third speech in Toastermaster two months ago. I forgot to put it in my blog. So, here it is.


    Our society places so much emphasis on "making it", and we assume that any failure is bad. We try our best to avoid failure in our daily life. Is failure really so bad for us? No, what we don't always recognize is that what looks like failure may prove beneficial in the future. On the contrary, some times success can be destructive for us in long run.

    The danger of too early success is particularly acute. I recall from my childhood, a girl who can write perfect calligraphy of China when she is primary school student. While the rest of us were playing, bicycling and reading, she practise calligraphy everyday after school and all the weekend. Her name often appeared in the papers and radio in our school, and the rest of us envied her glamorous life. Years later, she failed to pass the examination of collage. She spoke bitterly of those early triumphs. “I never prepared myself for anything, but calligraphy of china.” Too earlier success block her step to bigger goal.

    Success that comes too easily is also damaged. One of my high middle school classmates, who always is the top student in our class. He is a talent in the eyes of his parents and us. After entering the collage, he faced the competition which he has never run into before. He doesn't stand head and shoulders above others anymore. He was not excellent as he used to anymore. He was disappointment and annoyed with his situation. He paid more his attention on score and the others opinion, but the collage work itself. He lost his way. Too easy success cover his mind to overcome difficulty in the future of his life.

    Success is also harmful when it is achieved at the cost of total quality of an experience. Successful student sometimes become so obsessed with grades that they never enjoy their school years. They are never branch out into attempting new areas, because they don't want to risk their grade-point average. Success which encourage repetition of old behaviors, is not nearly as good a teacher as failure. You can learn from a mess party how to organize it next time, from an ill-chosen book what to look for in a second. Even a failure that seems totally can prompt fresh thinking, a total change of your dream. Let's think over the story about Wu Wang Fuchai and Yue wang Goujian.

    Observing the histories all over the world. Thousands of stories told us this truth. Failure is not always bad as we thought it is. Meanwhile, success is not always good as we expected. In particular, it comes too early and too easy.

转:多收了三五斗之买房篇 --多花了三五万

        花城的售楼处,横七竖八的躺着各处过来排队的购房者。心里满载的是希望,周边的车和方便面盒包围着,填满了售楼处前面广场的空隙。售楼就在大门的里面。光柱子落在大门口晃动的脑袋上。

      那些购房者几天前就来到这排队,领到号码,气也不透一口,便来到大门口占卜他们的名誉。“32号7040,46号7240。”价目表上白纸黑字的写着。

      “什么!”购房朋友几乎不相信自己的眼睛。美满的希望突然一沉,一会儿大家都呆了。

     “在前面介绍中,不是说6800么?”

     “6300也卖过,不要说6800。”

     “哪有涨得这么厉害!”

    “现在什么时候,你们不知道么?各处的楼价疯一样涨,过几天还要涨呢!”

     刚才排队犹如抢购的一股劲,现在在每个人的身体里松懈下来。今年房价大涨,物价也是大涨,一年也就拿那么一点工资,看着这边便宜一点,谁都以为可以省一点了。

     哪里知道临到最后的占卜,却是价格大涨!

    “还是不买的好,我们等房价降下来买吧!”从简单的心里喷出了这样的愤激的话。

    “嗤,”开发商冷笑着,“你们不买,房价就会降下来了么?各处来买房子的多的是人。温州炒房团还有人没有买到,后面又来了几批外国热钱。”

     温州炒房团,外国热钱,那是遥远的事,仿佛可以不管。而不买已经排了几天几夜的房子,却只能作为一句愤激的话说说罢了。怎么能够不买呢?房租是要交的,群租是要打击的,房价还是要大涨的。

     “我们去其他楼盘把,”在其他楼盘,或许有更便宜的房子在等着他们,有人这样想。

      但是,开发商又来了一个“嗤”,摸着肥厚的大肚子说道:“不要说其他楼盘,就是到其他城市也一样。我们已经内部公议,房价就是要大涨。”

      “到其他楼盘没有好处”,同伴间也有提出了驳议。“在其他楼盘,价格比他的价格还要高,谁知道是不是也跳价呢?就依他们的价格,哪来的首付?”

      “先生,能不能降一点?”差不多是哀求的声气。

       “降低一点,说说倒是很容易的一句话。我们开发楼盘是拿本钱来做的,你要知道,降低一点,就是说替你们白当差,射阳的傻事谁肯干?”

      “这个价格实在是太高了,我们做梦也没想到。去年是5000,今年是5800,不,你说你们这次是6800,我想,这次怎么也该是6800吧。哪里知道要7040。”

      “先生,就是这次宣传的价格,6800吧。”

      “先生,打工者可怜,你们就行行好,少赚一点吧。”

      另一位先生听得厌烦,把嘴里的香烟屁股仍在门口,睁大了眼睛说:“你们嫌价钱高,就不要买好了。是你门自己来的,并没有请你们来。只管多啰唆做什么!我们有的是房子,你们不买,有别人买。你们看,又有人来排队了。”

      三五群买房人来到门口,呈上来的是表现者希望的笑脸。他们随即加入到先到的一群。毒辣的太阳落在一颗颗脑袋上。

     “听听看,这次什么价钱。”

      “比宣传还贵,要7040!”伴着一副懊丧到无可奈何的神色。
     “什么!”希望犹如肥皂泡,一会儿有迸裂了三四个。

      希望的肥皂泡虽然迸裂了,可是房子还是要买的;而且现在只能涨价了的房子。开发商有的是房子,而老百姓们正需要房子。

     在楼层的选择中,结果房子真的卖光了。买房朋友把自己辛苦挣来的钱送进了开发商的口袋里,换到手的是要明年10月份的期房

一只小猫

       午后,半躺半卧在床上,随手翻着本书,任凭睡意随意来扰,不用考虑时间的睡去,这是休息日最惬意的时刻。醒来时,天已经渐渐暗下,远处高楼上已有几点灯光。细细的秋雨已经不知何时在窗外漫步,落下一地的足迹。

       撑着伞和阿玲一起从菜市场回来,雨慢慢的大了起来。雨水从楼前那间矮屋子的房檐上汇聚成一道小小的水流,夹杂着片片黄叶流下来。风在树端跳动着,摇曳着,裹挟着一缕一缕的秋雨掠过肩头。若有若无,若隐若现小猫叫声从湿冷的树墩下传来。那声音像猫的叫声,也像是小鸟的叫声。

“喵喵啾啾”撑着伞走向前看,一只浑身一闪黑色的小猫,蹲在湿漉漉的树下无助的叫着。很小的一只小猫,连带尾巴大约也只有一只手长,黑色的体毛还呈现着幼猫的蓬松,四肢相对于身体的显得尤为短小。“咪咪…”,我试着唤它,不等我蹲下身体,小黑猫却以我没想到的速度从我脚边窜过,转过墙角不见了。我走到墙角见后面有一个铁栅栏,锁着一个黑暗的堆积着杂物的小屋子。院子有很多的流浪猫,这个我是知道的。每每阳光很好的日子,它们就三五成群的躺在花园的草地里面晒太阳,
然而这只小黑猫我却不曾见过。而在这样的秋雨的傍晚,它的兄弟姐妹父兄妈妈都去了哪里躲藏呢?

       吃过晚饭,雨点伴随着风更加大了,在萧瑟的秋风中,我又依稀听到了那只小猫的叫声。没错,是那只小猫叫,声音在树叶的沙沙声与雨点落地的滴答中摇摆。我又撑了伞悄悄的来到那棵树下,透着远处的路灯投下的点点亮光,我刚看清楚它,它却矫捷的又一次从我的脚边溜过,我抬脚挡一下,它越了过去,我转身,它一晃消失在那个有着栅栏的黑屋子里面。

       带着些许惆怅踱回屋子,雨依旧稀稀拉拉的下个不停,一夜我再没有听到小猫的叫声。第二天,天很晴朗,我依然没有再听到它的声音。
