I am nobody (4) 我是无名之辈之四

Nobody has a hat. It was made in Italy but purchased in Japan years ago. It was a gift from someone who was once important. Its simple style is just what she likes. But it is a little too big for her and she doesn’t wear it often. This afternoon, she sees it at her closet, puts it on and remembers the history it contains. It’s been a long time now, she thinks. It’s funny that so many things are moving backward in time, making her feel old. A long time ago, when she was an elementary school student, she always thought that those middle school students are “so big and so old.” She looked up to them and couldn’t wait to become a middle school student. Now even a college student or graduate student is too young.

无名之辈有顶帽子。意大利的牌子,某君从日本为她买的。帽子设计简单,正合她的风格。但帽子有点大,她并不常戴它。今天,她在衣柜看到它,顺手拿了戴上,就想起从前。往事如烟啊,她想。近来,她发现许多事情都爬上时间的轨道,往后旅行,离她越来越遥远,让她深切地觉得自己在慢慢变老。仍记得,多年前,在她仍是小学生的时候,她敬仰中学生,因为他们是那么大,简直是高不可攀的。她多渴望长大变成中学生。而今,便是大学生、研究生,在她眼中都嫩得很。
