Lappy, BG, dan Tanda-Tanda Alam

Bukan saya namanya, kalau tidak menyambung-nyambungkan. Tapi apapun, saya selalu percaya bahwa setiap peristiwa di dunia ini ada maksudnya. Tinggal kita bertanya “apa sih maksudnya?”

Awal kisah, seperti pernah saya tulis juga sebelumnya, si lappy rusak di usia jelang 3 tahun, hanya selisih sekian hari dari editor minta softcopy naskah saya–yang memang hanya disimpan di lappy.

Lalu beberapa waktu yang lalu, saya membaca twit bocah rantau bersama Mbak Lala Purwono, soal buku antologi indie yang go mayor. Yeah, turut bergembira. Dan saya akan beli itu buku kalau udah keluar. Dan kemudian saya bertanya tentang naskah buku saya–dalam hati.

Lalu lagi, kemarin saya dapat kabar dan sedikit tanya-tanya dari editor, tentang naskah saya, yang bercerita tentang si Alfa. Saya ingat banget bab-bab awal naskah itu menceritakan awal kisah rusaknya Alfa.

Kerusakan pertamanya adalah selang karburator yang bocor. Hal itu bahkan menjadi inti di Bab (Bukan) Idola Indonesia.

Dan hanya 4 jam sesudah saya menjawab tanya-tanya dari editor, eh si BG berulah dengan mengucurkan bensin tiada henti dari selang karburatornya. Yang bikin ngelus dada adalah yang mengucur itu Shell Super seharga Rp. 9,800 yang baru dibeli. -_______-”

Total jenderal–sampai pagi–ada kali Rp. 30,000 yang mengucur lalu menguap, belum lagi meluap ke busi dan ke knalpot.

Belum lagi, itu si BG baru tak servis di AHASS hari Sabtu. So, can I believe AHASS again after this incident? Entahlah. Tapi faktanya, sejak saya berpisah dengan Alfa, saya nggak pernah lagi kontak dengan karburator, selang bensin, klep, jarum, dan segala tetek bengek permotoran lainnya. Dan menjelang kisah si Alfa memasuki babak baru, eh tangan saya belepotan Shell Super.

Semoga kisah benda-benda mati ini penuh ironi ini cukup sampai disini. Amin.

Payphone – Maroon 5

Lagunya cuma 3 menit 51 detik, tapi–ehm–lumayan dalam. Hehehe..

Oke, ini dia lirik lagu Payphone dari Maroon 5, dikutip dari SINI. Tapi kalau didengerin ada perbedaan antara STUPID dengan F*CKIN.. Hehehehehehe…

I’m at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone
Baby it’s all wrong, where are the plans we made for two?

Yeah, I, I know it’s hard to remember
The people we used to be
It’s even harder to picture
That you’re not here next to me
You say it’s too late to make it
But is it too late to try?
And in our time that you wasted
All of our bridges burned down

I’ve wasted my nights
You turned out the lights
Now I’m paralyzed
Still stuck in that time when we called it love
But even the sun sets in paradise

I’m at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone
Baby it’s all wrong, where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairytales are full of sh*t
One more stupid love song I’ll be sick

You turned your back on tomorrow
Cause you forgot yesterday
I gave you my love to borrow
But just gave it away
You can’t expect me to be fine
I don’t expect you to care
I know I’ve said it before
But all of our bridges burned down

I’ve wasted my nights
You turned out the lights
Now I’m paralyzed
Still stuck in that time when we called it love
But even the sun sets in paradise

I’m at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone
Baby it’s all wrong, where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairytales are full of sh*t
One more stupid love song I’ll be sick

Now I’m at a payphone…

[Wiz Khalifa]
Man work that sh*t
I’ll be out spending all this money while you sitting round
Wondering why it wasn’t you who came up from nothing
Made it from the bottom
Now when you see me I’m stunning
And all of my cars start with the push up a button
Telling me the chances I blew up or whatever you call it
Switched the number to my phone
So you never could call it
Don’t need my name on my show
You can tell it I’m ballin’
Swish, what a shame could have got picked
Had a really good game but you missed your last shot
So you talk about who you see at the top
Or what you could’ve saw
But sad to say it’s over for
Phantom pulled up valet open doors
Wiz like go away, got what you was looking for
Now ask me who they want
So you can go and take that little piece of sh*t with you

I’m at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone
Baby it’s all wrong, where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairytales are full of sh*t
One more stupid love song I’ll be sick

Now I’m at a payphone…

Dan, ehm, saya sangat tertarik pada lirik refrennya:

If happy ever after did exist

Yah, begitulah cinta.. -____-“
