常常地,一句话就可评判天才,譬如说:“黑夜给了我黑色的眼睛。“

然而评判流氓则要听多些。也许是酒过三番,面红耳赤你听见不堪;也许他是满腹经伦,你要守株待兔;也许他竟要装作放浪不羁,你得陪笑许久,守着他终于吐出自己的见识。小流氓背书,中流氓卖傻,大流氓又背书又卖傻。

“你蒙上物是人非的眼睛,说那是没有离别的风景…”

大勇兴奋地告诉我机房里来了一个“还不错”的妹子,说起来已经是两个月以前的事情了。那时他已厌倦了每天和我坐在几十台电脑后面跑程序、写报告的日子,浑身散发着行尸走肉的气息。初夏的薄扶林有种莫名的浪漫,大勇的眼睛亮亮的。

我们于是鬼鬼祟祟地溜到机房门口。大勇犹豫着频繁进出是否显得刻意,却在我刷卡的瞬… Read more...
