家。酒店

有時會覺得傢俱雜誌里的示範屋太乾淨﹐太整齊﹐

無論是前衛冷列﹐還是高貴典雅型的﹐都乾淨整齊得缺少一些人氣。

我喜歡屋子乾淨﹐卻不能太過整齊﹐

太整齊會讓我感覺像在住酒店﹐很不自在的。

在自己的家就應該放輕鬆﹐亂一點也不要緊﹐那才像是有人住的。

會有這樣的想法﹐不是因為懶惰整理 (你們要相信我 :P)﹐

原因請聽我慢慢道來。。。。。

幾年前由於工作的關係﹐曾在酒店住了三年﹐

開始的時後感覺很好﹐每天都有人打掃﹐幫你清理﹐

房間永遠都是整整齊齊﹐干乾淨淨的。

但是住了一陣子後﹐我就開始懷念起我的狗窩。

有時回到房間我會種錯覺﹐好像時間不曾流失似的﹐

沐浴露﹐牙膏﹐毛巾﹐桌布的位置永遠不變﹐

床單﹐枕頭永遠同一個色系﹐而且還帶有一陣洗過的味道﹐

侍應生服務員帶著同樣的笑容﹐問候的句子一成不變。

就好像是活在Trueman Show里的Jim Carrey  一樣。

慢慢的有種焦慮與不安的感覺在滋長。

而且如果拿假﹐就要退房﹐得把東西收好﹐然後放在酒店的儲藏室﹐

放完假回來再重新辦理入住手續﹐

但由於入住的房客眾多﹐得常常換到不同的房間。(佈置與設計卻是一樣的)

問了公司﹐即無法給我一個確定的時限﹐又不肯讓我在外面租房子。

三年多的時間﹐整一千多個日子住下來﹐

那種不安﹐不確定與缺乏歸屬感的焦慮都快把我給弄瘋了。

終於﹐那樣的日子都過完了。

我可以擁有一個自己的角落﹐要添個書架也行﹐種幾盆花也好﹐

閒暇時還可以邀請朋友上來坐坐﹐打幾圈麻將﹐煮頓晚餐什麼的﹐隨心所欲。

雖然屋子是舊了一點﹐小了一些﹐

但至少﹐那是屬於自己的家。

    Do you have an underwear hanging on the lamp?
    Do you have an umbrella on an overstuffed chair?
    Do you have a jacket thrown on the floor?
    Do you have a magazine or papers underneath the TV?
    Do you have pants carelessly hung on the door?
    Do you have books all jammed in the closet?
    Do you have a smelly old sock stuck to the wall?

    You have answered NO to all the above???
