He Brings Out the Best of Me

The Best Thing In The World

自信的外国男人

Once upon a time, there were four brothers who lived in a far away land. Their father was an old king. One day he said, "I will not live long now. Today you must start out into the world. In a year, bring back the best thing you have found. The one who can pick the best thing shall be the new king." The first brother said, "I will look in every city or town. I will buy the best thing I can for my father." The next two brothers said, "We will both go on fast ships over the sea. We will find something better." The last brother said, "I am going to ask the people here in our own land to tell me the best thing." The other three brothers began to laugh. "Then you will never be king!" They said.

两个礼拜前教会活动完了顺道开车到我们那里我还比较喜欢的一个购物的地方,T.K.Maxx,我在的城市太小,没有什么可以买东西的。只有这个T.K.Maxx好像淘宝店一样,里面会进一些各种各样的品牌货,不定期的更换,是比较吸引我的地方。买了几双非常有特色的鞋子,我正在一堆各式的灯罩中间徘徊,突然有个外国男人跟我搭讪,称赞我买的鞋子好看,顺便问我灯罩应该选哪种颜色。那天我心情好,就跟他聊了一会,我心情一旦好起来,就会跟人讲话毫无顾忌。

The last brother started off. When he had gone about six miles, he met a man. "What do you carry in those big bags?" he asked. "The best thing in the world," said the man. "These are full of the good nuts which fall from my five nut trees." "I don't think that would work," said the brother to himself, "I must try again." The brother went on another seven miles. He found a small brown bird. It had been hurt, so he put it in his coat where it could keep warm. As he went on, he saw a little girl crying. He ran to meet her. "Why are you crying?" he asked. "I want to get some water from the well," she said. "We use so much. We drink cold water. We wash the clothes clean with hot water. But I do not know how to pull it up. Please show me." The brother said, "Hold this bird and I will help you. It does not fly around any more because it got its wing cut." "Thank you. What a pretty bird!" she said. "I wish you would give it to me. If you will let me keep it, I will always be very kind to it. I will take care of it myself. I will make it grow well again." "Yes, you may have it," said the brother. So he gave her the bird and went on.

才说两句,他不停赞美我的头发漂亮,还在我背后要摸我头发,还好那天我心情好。他问我是否愿意跟他一起去喝茶,Do you want to have a cup of tea over there?

At night, he went to sleep under a round yellow haystack. When it was light again he walked on. Every day he would walk eight or ten miles. He asked the people about the best thing in the world. Some said it was best to sing. Some said it was best to run and jump and play. Some said the green grass was best. Some liked the red and blue and white flowers best. One man said the best thing was to ride a black horse. He always stopped to help people who needed it. Soon he made many friends. All the people began to like him. They would say, "See there goes the king's son. He would be just the right kind of king for us." Every door was open to him. The people would call to him to stop. They would ask him to come and eat with them. After he ate, he would sit down and read to the children. After he read, he showed them how to draw and write. Months went by. He still had no beautiful thing to take to his father. Just before the year was done, he went home again.

No, Thanks. I don't drink tea or coffee.

The time came when the king called his sons together. "What did you bring?" He asked them all. The other brothers had many beautiful things. "And what did you bring?" said the king to the last brother. "This is too funny!" said the other brothers. "He has nothing!" But the king was kind to the last brother. "What did you bring me?" the king asked again. "I bring only the friendship of your people," said the last  brother. "That is the best thing!" cried his father. "You shall be the new king."

通常这一句之后,大部分搭讪的男人基本就停住了,礼貌性的走开。可是这个人不同,他好像非常自信。I mean you can drink anything you want. You need to drink something anyway,right? 这个提议倒是很合时宜,确实是我该喝点什么东西的时间,每天我要喝到1500cc的水,那好吧,你可以等我付完款吗?

The End

曾经也有类似的事情发生,等我慢吞吞的付完款,基本上有耐心的人是不多的。等我走出商店,把买的东西放到车里的时候,这个男人恰到好处的出现了,I have been waiting for you here。我看着这个男人,不是金色的头发,而是白色的头发,其貌不扬,甚至有点不好看,一只眼睛的眼珠子鼓出来,说实话我有点害怕,大太阳下,我只有祷告,上帝呀,这个男人要是不危险,就让我跟他去喝茶吧。

去了Starbucks coffee,我要了一杯热巧克力,加上一片杏仁饼干。坐在那里开始聊天,知道他是无业游民,平时就做一些建筑方面的活,说是刚买了个房子。然后我告诉他我的职业。他不停的称赞我漂亮,这个已经习惯,问题是他下面说的话让我吃惊,My new house is waiting for a woman,are you interested in moving in?

No.

Why?

匆忙之中我只能说,Because I want to find a Chinese man.鬼才知道我到底想找什么男人,如果遇到一个非基督徒,我通常会拿找一个基督徒做借口,如果遇到外国人,我通常会拿找一个中国人做借口。

他遗憾的摇摇头,跟我聊了很多,告诉我他就喜欢我这样的,长长黑头发,等等。说他这么英俊的男人就该配我这样的,还给我展示他的肌肉,说自己的身材保养很好,着实让我吃了一惊。不是觉得他难看,而是他这么自信,要知道,我对男人的身材期待是像电影明星那样的,比如那个Taitanic里的Jack的那种身材,要没有肚子才行。谁让我们的传媒这么发达,我对男人的印象都来自于电影,而电影是炮制了一堆的标准身材。这个男人,离我印象当中真正男人的样子,还很远,他有一点小肚子。

一杯咖啡的时间很快,出了Starbucks,他带我看他的车,一辆BMW的蓝色敞篷跑车,告诉我,很想开这车带我去海边,或者看个电影什么的。我把他的车参观了一遍,毕竟我也没有坐过很cute的BMW。走得时候,他一定写给我他的电话号码,any time you change your mind, please do call me.

遇到男人搭讪不是第一次,但是我很少真正地去坐下来跟男人喝一杯茶,或者出去坐坐,大部分男人会在我用的借口之前退却。这个男人的理由让我找不到借口推脱,告别了他的BMW跑车,走向我自己的有十几年历史的旧车,摇头笑笑,原来很难看的男人自信起来,是可以这样让人舒服。从前在香港和国内的时候,也有不少男人搭讪,但是如果我不理他们,他们大部分都会说我不好,有的人还会立即说我有问题。而这个男人,彬彬有礼,如此自信,I am the right type of person to take care of you, 让我觉得自己非常值得珍贵,而且会让我偶尔想起他。

专业摄影师

上个周末去一个教会办的活动,去的时候带了相机,说起来我这款入门级的单反Canon 500D,买了一年多了,基本上只用自动档拍照,没有时间去研究。正站在那里的时候,一个外国男人跑过来,胖胖的身材,也不高,说要看看我的相机,正讶异间他说,I am a professional photographer,我的手松了,拿给他摆弄我的相机,才两分钟的时间,他说我可以给你拍张照片,也是神奇,平时我自己如何拍照,以及那些号称玩单反的朋友们给我拍的照片,都没有他给我拍的照片像照片,就那么一张,我认定了他摄影水平很正,虽然当晚我神情疲惫,脸上因为压力冒出不少青春痘,随便穿着的衣服,但是他拍出的照片让我知道,那就是真实的我,而且还很好看。

所以他问我第二天要不要跟他和他的朋友一起去海边玩,顺便教我拍照片的时候,我毫不犹疑的说愿意,而且提供车带他们去。我们这里有英国最著名的海滩,美的惊人。天色虽然不好,从用光到取景,到人物的动态拍摄,如果控制这个相机,让它替你拍出满意的照片,这个其貌不扬的男人,专业摄影师,土耳其小伙子,将相机玩得如同魔术一般,顺带着我也学了不少技术,那种感觉真是好极了。我们大家互相做模特,拍了很多很好的照片,大概是我照片当中最好的照片了,让我后悔为什么不早点认识一个专业摄影师。

当天他愿意跟我去教会,教会的人开玩笑,can this man be Mr. redbud? No, never. 我本能的反应。Why,because I want to find a Chinese man。

我知道,其实我不是在意他是哪国人,而是我想象的男朋友应该是又帅气又高大的。

He just brings out the best of me

朋友A昨天突然上线跟我聊了一通。好久没找你了,我一高兴就会把你忘了。

我跟朋友A网上认识的,我们认识不久就发现彼此有很多共同点,后来我们在生活中见面,一直就成了神交的朋友。

真正深入熟悉起来是前一段时间,她有一天突然在网上找我,让我帮她祷告。一问才知道,她老公前段时间去北京出差,遇到一个北京女孩,就出轨了。现在准备分居,下一步是离婚。A非常不甘心,她跟我一起祷告,讲自己在婚姻里的付出,孩子如何太小,坚决不能离婚。我只能陪着她一起慢慢的走这段路,看着她的情绪慢慢发泄出来。

当然她是很不甘心的,我知道她跟老公的婚姻,帅哥,异国恋,对方很好的家世。当年她结婚的时候,好像灰姑娘的感觉。

她那一段时间买了一堆的书,如何获得男人的心,还推荐给我看,美国女权主义写的,告诉我这是俘获男人的法宝。我笑笑说,我每天就打扮好了去办公室,办公室还是我一个人,没有实践场地啊。

然后她消失了一段时间,再出现就是这次了,给我看她新写的故事。青蛙王子不会真的变成王子,就只是一个青蛙,但是却对她很用心。

“你知道么,我现在才发现,男人不是要看外表的,从前我的老公很帅,他家是有名的大家族,我总是觉得自己是灰姑娘,老是担心自己会失去他,所以我一直小心翼翼,从没有空间真正舒展自己。”

我送上一个理解的笑,这我看得出,她刚来跟我谈婚姻的时候,我就体会到了,她对自己自我价值的看低。

“最近我终于想通了,开始dating,最近遇到的这个他,即不英俊,也不是来自于什么有名望的家庭,他很普通,普通到我平常可能不会想到去关注这样的人。可是真的很奇怪,他会让我笑。他给我足够的空间,he just brings out the best of me. You know, he even has a lovers handle."

我打出一个欣赏的表情。what's lovers handle?

“Big tummy.”

澳门新莆京33375.com,嗯,我确实比较能理解她,我们曾经的香港生活,让我们对身材和外表无比关注,我们都力争做到苗条,并且希望男人也是苗条的健美的,传媒给了我一套标准。我一直对于有着tummy的男人无法有好感,到底是我们的原因呢,还是那些男人真的该注意自己的健康和身材呢。

“你知道么,他让我体会到,我自己也可以是一个公主。我现在终于明白了,一个对你好的男人,如果对你用心,你不用在意他的外表。从前的老公,是prince charming,现在的男友是真正的frog,他不会变成prince charing,可是他对我用心啊。He brings the best out of me。”

“我要下线了,最近心情实在好,我要准备烤新鲜的面包”。

A跟几个月前的状态简直是天翻地覆。

留下若有所思的我。
