Pengakuan. Saya (pernah) punya lebih dari 50 pasang alas kaki. Terdiri atas sepatu olahraga, sneakers, high heels, wedges, flat shoes, sandal-sandal cantik, flip flop, sendal gunung, hampir semua model sepatu dan sandal (waktu itu) saya punya. Ada yang dibeli dengan tabungan beberapa bulan, khususnya yang sepatu kantor dan olahraga, tapi sebagian besar berasal dari rak diskon (untungnya ukuran saya 35 up to 36 sehingga sewaktu sale di mana-mana penuh ukuran itu dengan harga super miring, bahkan sering saya dapat sepatu Yongki dengan hanya 20 ribu rupiah saja) atau hasil jalan-jalan di Melawai.

Sewaktu saya pindahan dari Jakarta ke Samarinda, Mr Defender sangat syok dengan paket yang berisi baju, sepatu, tas, dan asesoris saya yang jumlahnya mencapai 20 kardus Aqua besar (jangankan dia, saya pun syok). Lalu ketika akhirnya lemari di kos baru saya nggak muat menampung itu semua dan akhirnya sebagian besar dari 20 kardus itu terpaksa tetap dikardusin, setiap saya naksir baju, sepatu, atau tas di mal, Mr Defender selalu nyindir, "Itu baju-baju yang di kardus juga belum dibongkar, mending beli lemari aja dulu (loh?)." Yang akhirnya membuat saya menghibahkan sebagian besar isi kardus itu kepada mereka yang lebih membutuhkan. Walaupun belinya pakai uang sendiri, dan bajunya juga bukan baju-baju mahal, tetap aja rasanya malu juga punya sebanyak itu baju dan sepatu padahal badan cuma satu, kaki cuma dua. Mr Defender pernah bercanda bahwa saya bisa ganti baju tiga kali sehari selama dua bulan tanpa dicuci dan belum akan kehabisan baju, hahahaha.

Nah, singkat cerita, sekarang ini saya cuma punya sekitar 15 pasang sepatu, yang terbagi menjadi sepatu kantor, sepatu pesta, sepatu olahraga, sneakers, dan sandal buat main. Berbulan-bulan saya nggak beli sepatu, mengingat pengalaman 20 kardus itu, sampai suatu hari, saat saya naksir sepasang kitten heels lucu KW Christian Louboutin....

bagus ya? (melihat, membelai dengan sayang, mencoba, dan meletakkan kembali di rak)
loh, kok dilihat aja, nggak dibeli?
enggak ah, kan katanya yang di kardus aja masih adaaaa
kan udah lama nggak beli sepatu, nggak apa dong, beli aja
enggak ah, mahal
masa? (membalik sepatu melihat harganya) murah kok, 400 ribu buat sepatu kantor
mahal ah, aku jarang-jarang beli yang segitu, beli yang diskonan aja di bawah 300
ya gapapa sekali-kali
iya sih tapi sepatu kantor aku udah ada enam...
yah, cuma enam, sepatu futsal aku aja ada 20 lebih...
APAAAAA??? 20? sepatu futsal doang??
ya kan ada yang buat lapangan rumput, vinyl, karpet, lantai biasa...
trus ngapain selama ini komentarin sepatu aku?
ya aku pikir sepatu kamu yang 50 biji itu harganya sama kayak sepatu futsalku, makanya kupikir kamu boros banget...
(syok berat, soalnya tahu kalau sepatu futsal termurahnya dia itu harganya 600-an ribu,  kebanyakan seri yang nggak keluar di Indonesia dan biaya kirimnya bikin pengen seppuku, bahkan ada yang harganya mencapai ribuan euro. sakit!!)

Arrrrggghhh! Ini sebenarnya siapa yang boros siiihhh??

bagian tersulit adalah berputar haluan

Saat pertama kali belajar menyetir, salah satu yang membuat saya takut adalah saat saya harus putar balik di jalan yang cukup ramai. Mengapa menakutkan? Karena saya mudah panik, butuh keberanian untuk membelokkan mobil dengan sedikit menghambat kendaraan-kendaraan lain di belakang yang terus mengklakson, dan kadang harus memotong arus jalan pengendara lain yang berlawanan arah dengan saya, yang memelototi saya dengan kesal karena merasa perjalanannya terganggu. Proses memotong jalan itu sangat tidak nyaman untuk saya ketika itu, sebab apabila panik, seringkali saya buru-buru melepas kopling tanpa diimbangi gas yang hasilnya mesin mati, atau kurang tepat mengukur seberapa banyak saya harus memutar setir, yang akhirnya membuat mobil saya mentok di trotoar, lalu saya harus memundurkannya dan membelokkannya kembali. Merepotkan.

Karena itu, saya sering memilih untuk nggak putar balik di tempat ramai itu dan jalan terus, lalu nanti belok kanan di perempatan, lalu belok kanan lagi di peremp…


Tujuhbelasan ini anak-anak saya yang sudah mengerti sedikit bahwa tiap tujuhbelasan ada berbagai perayaan, ikut meramaikan hari ulangtahun kemerdekaan dengan segenap keriaan. Mulai dari ikutan berbagai rangkaian acara di sekolah dampai berpartisipasi di acara tujuhbelasan di RT kami yang setiap tahunnya meriah. Kalau tahun-tahun sebelumnya anak-anak saya cuma bisa menonton, di tahun ini mereka sudah ikut berbagai macam lomba. Lomba lari kelereng, memasukkan jarum ke dalam botol, makan kerupuk, balap karung dan aneka lomba khas hari kemerdekaan lainnya, semuanya mereka ikuti.

Nggak tanggung-tanggung, pulang dari gelanggang tujuhbelasan, anak-anak saya membawa hadiah banyak sekali. Sampai di rumah mereka masih dengan keringat berleleran seperti habis membajak sawah, bercerita dengan bangganya betapa mereka menang ini itu. Di sana juga mereka makan, karena memang disediakan makanan prasmanan seperti sedang hajatan, lengkap dengan aneka jajanan ringan dan minuman sirup aneka rasa.


Catatan Ulang Tahun

Hey orang tua, jangan umbar kata. Ingatlah bahwa kau juga penuh muda, pernah lucu pernah lugu dan tak bijaksana.
Sebentar lagi, saya akan memasuki usia kepala tiga. Pergantian usia yang menjadi momen besar bagi sebagian orang, dan menjadi penanda bagi sebagian besar wanita untuk mulai membeli produk perawatan kulit dengan embel-embel 'anti-aging'. Di sisi lain, jelang usia tiga puluh bagi banyak orang diidentikkan dengan peralihan fase dari muda menjadi dewasa. Dewasa dalam hal bersikap, berperilaku, termasuk mungkin dewasa dalam penampilan dan dewasa dalam hal sudah mapan, entah dalam wujud pekerjaan, penghasilan, atau berkeluarga. Mungkin sebagian orang memasang target menikah di usia ini, atau membeli rumah, memiliki anak atau hal-hal besar lainnya.
Hey kau yang muda, jadilah berguna bagi dirimu dan sanak saudara. Sudahi saja pestamu dan luangkan waktu, melakukan sesuatu untuk masa depanmu.
