每次我儿子给我打电话,结束时总会说”Iloveyou,mom!”。有次他用中文说“我爱你,妈!”我惊喜得在电话里叫了起来。他很不解。我告诉他,你用中文说,我觉的很特别,因为中国人很少说我爱你,几乎不会对父母说我爱你。他吃惊地问我”你从来没有跟外婆说我爱你吗?”我一下怔住了,从来没有人问我这个问题,搜索我的记忆后我告诉他”从来没有说过&[阅读全文]

几天前的一个晚上,我想收拾儿子的房间。进门看到吊扇是黑色的时,我震惊了。在我的记忆中,它是白色的。难道是有人换了吊扇?或者把它漆成黑色了?或者我记错了?怎么会,我还擦过几次。或者我疯了?我站在床上仔细看了吊扇,是旧吊扇,没有重新粉刷过的痕迹。我的记忆错了,错这么多?第二天早上我给儿子发了短信,“你记得你房间里吊扇的颜色吗?”&ld[阅读全文]
