咖啡大爆炸

「拿,陳太,去英國升學最緊要咩呢,要Edwin自己學到咩叫做獨立。英國人好重視自我獨立生活,Edwin去到要自己處理家務,煮飯洗衫都係自己搞掂。」

 

這些說話,對一個教育者而言是老生常談,像天氣先生日日說「室內氣溫22度,相對濕度百份之七十五,間中有雨。」一樣。

 

但所謂知易行難,容易說出口的話未必知道何解,天氣先生都不一定知道22度即是幾凍。而昨日就發生了一件令我無比尷尬,甚至想再回英國讀多幾年書的事…

 

話說中午出席完一個公開場合,回公司繼續拼搏。我不是一個咖啡癡,不是一杯接一杯啡不離口的人,但真係眼瞓到飛起,開了一包剛從網購網站買來的即沖咖啡提一提神。低B的我用鮮奶沖咖啡,還將杯放進微波爐叮…

 

「嘩!微波爐大爆炸!」全場同事靜哂,目瞪口呆,以為真的大爆炸。「哈哈哈,腦細係咪搞笑呀你!」「快啲抹返乾淨啦點叮飯呀!」「低能仔!」唔…sorry囉。我好想抵賴,這種低給錯誤純粹是因為我太眼瞓,沒精神所以才出事。但此時此刻,在眾同事的恥笑聲中我實在一句話都說不出,只是好想搵窿捐…

 

這個故事雖然出不出甚麼大道理,但應該足夠告訴各位自立的重要性。廿幾歲人,熱咖啡仍放進微波爐叮這種事說出來都覺得羞恥…不過,我偏要說出來,學似越王勾踐,要記住自己的屈辱,下次不會再犯。

 

陳太,Edwin,我對你唔住…去英國記得要學識沖咖啡,唔好好似我咁…
