  屋顶遇险记

  铲雪可是件大事,每个开车经过的人都看得到你的劳动成果,所以人们给屋顶除雪绝对不惜余力。

  有一回克拉伦斯・奔森在自家的屋顶上铲雪太卖力气了,就躺下来休息一会。他累得筋疲力尽,脚后跟便往沟里一伸,身子往沥青屋顶上一倒。由于使了那么多力气,他觉得暖烘烘的,太阳还在天空中照耀着,接下来他所知道的就是睡醒了过来,他睡了已有好一会儿,觉得冷飕飕的,他还感到什么巨型大物在拽着他的胸口,他朝下一望,脚跟子已经不在沟里了――而是悬挂在沟上。他的羊毛衫――他穿着的上衣给冻在了屋顶上,衣服背和他伸出去的胳膊全给冻在屋顶上,冻得是纹丝不动。人们在街上开车经过时朝他又是按喇叭又是挥手,所以他才发现自己的胳膊给冻住了。

  就在这时,他听到有车开进了隔壁的车道,那是他邻居阿思克兰太太。哦,他太希望她瞧不见他了!他静静地仰躺在屋顶上。阿思克兰太太是镇上的话匣子,她说起人来从不客气。他听到她朝房子走过来,接着她的脚步停了下来。他屏住了呼吸。

  她说话了:“奔森先生?”

  “是我,”他说,“我在屋顶上。”

  “我知道,我看到你了,你还好吗?”

  “好,我还好!”

  “你在那顶上做什么?”

  “我在丈量房顶。”

  “用什么量?”

  “左手指尖到右手指尖是大约六英尺,阿思克兰太太。”他说。

  “你量来做什么?”

  “我们在考虑增加一个房间。”

  她为此思考了好一会儿,“你量完了吗?”她问道。

  “没有,我停下来是因为忘了数是四个臂宽还是五个。”

  她放下东西,走进奔森家的院子,仰着头看。她说:“我看是四个。你确定你没事吗?”

  “我很好。”他说。

  “待在上边小心点。”

  “会的,”他说道,“谢谢你!”

  于是她回了自己的屋。他听到她关了门。

  他想到要蹬屋顶,或许那办法能让屋里的爱琳发现他的困境,可他脚上穿的是橡皮靴,发不出什么响声。然后他想起爱琳或许正看着电视。其实爱琳一大早就说过要看电视放的一部电影,那电影足有四个钟头长呢,要等到她看完电影后想起来找我――她老公,我早在这儿翘辫子了!这么怪诞的死法,镇上非议论个经年不息不可,经年不息啊!

  说时迟,爱琳她就走了出来。她站在下面说道:“晚饭准备好了!”

  “我们吃什么?”他问。

  “热鱼汉堡包。”

  “好,”他说,“好!”

  “你准备下来了吗?”她问。

  “是的,”他说,“我这就下来,问题是我的上衣脱不下来,我给冻在屋顶了……”

  这次历险他谁也没给说。太可惜了,这么好的故事竟然不能跟人说――说他如何从自家屋顶上死里逃生。他想,也许该寻找一个专门为冬天差点冻死的人们服务的组织,最好一个月聚会一次讲述自己的故事。那么他就可以站起来,大讲特讲他怎么在屋顶上铲雪,又怎么挨冻的了。
