 My second visit to the U.S.A.(9)— The world is so small

 Yesterday afternoon I paid a visit to a Chinese family in the neighborhood where my son lived. I met the hostess of the family by chance while I was taking a walk around the neighborhood about two months before, then, who was holding her little daughter in the hand, standing in front of her house. I said hello to her when I walked past. We talked with each other only a few words. She told me that her parents would come to the US soon to help take care of her children. She would be pleased to be visited when her parents were with her family here. I haven't seen her ever since I met her last time.

   Being busy with cooking meals, reading books, watching DVD, surfing on the internet these days, I could hardly remember to call at the Chinese house.

   It occurred to me that I ought to call on the young woman’s parents whom I had known lately. We lived very near, I could see the back balcony of her home through the windowpane of my kitchen.  I pressed the bell of her door and was invited into the living room. All the members of her family were at home. Because it was Presidents’ Day that day, some of the companies in the United States had a one-day holiday, her husband was off duty. I sat in the sofa chatting with the hostess, while her elder daughter watching animated cartoon on TV and her younger one sleeping. I was told that her parents would be here the next week. She was looking forward to seeing them soon.

   After introducing ourselves to each other, I was amazed that the husband and wife were from Jinan City of Shandong Province in China. Unexpectedly, they came from the same city as I did. What a happy coincidence! We talked and talked, suddenly I felt close with her. It was more astonishing that her parents-in-law lived only one block away from the place where I used to work. My God, the world is so small!

   Our conversation lasted two hours, then I said good-bye to her and went home.

 

  昨天下午我去拜访了住在我儿子小区的那家中国人。大概是两个月前我刚到美国时,有一天我在家的附近散步,碰到了一位年轻的中国女士,当时她手中牵着一个小女孩正站在她的房子门前。我走过时和她打了声招呼,说了几句话(因为离她十几米远的时候,我听到她在和她的女儿讲中国话,所以我断定她是中国人)。她告诉我她的父母快来美国帮她照顾孩子了,她很高兴我到时能够去她家坐坐。自那以后我再也没有见到她。

  由于整天忙着做饭、看小说、看光碟、上网,我都几乎把这件事忘了。

昨天我突然想起该去她家看看了,说不定她的父母早来了。我们住得很近,从我儿子家的厨房窗户就能够看到她家的后凉台。我按响了她家的门铃,她把我让进了客厅,她全家人都在家。因为昨天是美国总统日(每年二月的第三个星期一),有些单位放一天假,她的丈夫也放假在家。我坐在沙发上与女主人聊天,她的大女儿在看电视上的儿童卡通节目,小女儿在睡觉。她的父母下周才来美国,她盼着他们快点来到。

  我们互相简单地自我介绍,令我惊奇地是他们夫妇都是山东济南人,竟然和我是一个城市的。多巧啊!我们俩聊了很多,我突然觉得我们的关系是这么的密切。更加令人称奇的是,她的公公婆婆的工作单位离我的工作单位只隔着一条马路。天啊! 这个世界真小!我俩聊了有两个小时,然后我向她道别后回家。
