When I left, I still had a bold image of a man taking off his deer, sweaty next to the smoky stove, taking care of his wife’s meals. In the yard, the old honda with chicken and duck’s head and the aftermath of street cotton candy – his “fishing rod” for rice – is always in a state of “ready to go to battle”. Oh! I don’t know how many industrious and faithful men are there in this life?
The house couldn’t get any smaller, the bedroom and the kitchen packed together within a few meters. The yard is also small, full of dead leaves and a few brooding pieces of firewood, which he has brought back but hasn’t cut it yet. She sat down on her knees in front of the porch, her short hair hanging in front of her forehead, her figure as thin as a white stork. Her eyes followed the road to wait, and sometimes she clicked her tongue according to the impatience of the customer: “Why did he come back so late today, I don’t know…”
It’s past noon. I waited for more than an hour, finally he came back, carrying sugar, milk, pork leg, chayote … today he must be “unlucky”. He replied: “No matter what happens, you have to raise her like that!”. Then he went to the kitchen and made an appointment to talk after he finished the pot of soup.
Every day, he went out of the house when most of the families were still closed. Street vendors carry pinwheels, balloons, and cotton candy on the street according to schools, so you have to go early to sell them. Then at noon, he was helpless when he came back, ate a piece of rice quickly and “pull” again in the afternoon.
It wouldn’t be worth mentioning if it was a poor family, but the husband and wife had enough children, the husband had to work around the year to take care of food and clothing, the wife took care of the house and taught the children. But here, this man, this husband is “great” – at least in my view. The thing is, he and his wife lived together for seventeen years, twice the wife was pregnant, but by the eighth month, she could not keep the child because she was too weak. Then after the second miscarriage, the wife’s health deteriorated dramatically, the doctor said she could not get pregnant anymore. From a woman about 50kg, she only has more than 30kg, of course many diseases, including tuberculosis (now stage 2), making her thin and thin like a person who is about to turn six years old. new age 45!
How many years have passed is that much time he single-mindedly looked after his wife but not with a groan, scowling or giving birth to a petty wife to “earn a few children” like a life’s job. Without a stable job, no capital in hand, in order to support his wife, who is now sick and weak, he has to pull the bear and patch his shoulders, let go of this and that line to earn money. The man’s hands are rough but still tie each bubble pattern, stick each pinwheel pattern very soft and beautiful. The bubble stagnates because there are too many sellers. He switched to making cotton candy on the street. This new job helps him with more food and medicine for his wife when the children’s toys are saturated.
Every day, he takes care of her with five meals like taking care of a baby, also drinks milk three times a day, food is divided into many meals with vegetables, tubers, meat, eggs … His housework never let her touch her nails, she only had to eat rice, drink milk and watch TV! A tiny old television set by him at the head of the bed so that she does not have to move and get tired.
After wandering on the street, he returned to do the laundry and tidy up the house. The house is tiny and decorated very simply, but if you don’t have a woman’s hand, it’s also a problem with a man. so he managed it all.
Most people advise him to find a grandma to have a baby to cuddle, I’m sure she won’t mention anything, because he’s not young anymore! He laughed: “You know what to do, it’s like that in my number line. Husband and wife have been married for many years, if I leave her to find someone else, who will take care of her? My wife suffered because she couldn’t be her mother, why should I have another line of suffering?” The sister sitting next to me laughed: “I also told him to find a big baby for me to cuddle, he laughed and scolded me for mentioning nonsense! But I think, everyone who is decent will be nice no matter what, this and that person will be promiscuous at the end of their life! I am very lucky to have a husband like him, he said that as long as the husband and wife try to live together, they are happy.” The wide smile on her face and withered figure made her look like a few years younger.
“I came home late this afternoon, pumped birthday balloons, and earned tens of thousands of dollars. Selling candy in the afternoon to earn ten thousand more. So today is a bit off. Just bored of the rainy season, everything is empty. often no money at all. But the most annoying thing is that she keeps having a runny nose, headache, hot and cold, tired… Going to sell but worrying about not knowing what to do with her wife’s house. I don’t want anything big, I just hope I don’t get sick, sell expensive goods to feed my wife better” that “great” man said to me like that.
On the stove, the pot of stewed pork leg soup with chayote is cooked, fragrant to the point of craving. When I left, I still had a bold image of a shirtless, sweaty man next to a smoky stove, taking care of his wife’s meals. Outside in the yard, the rooster-headed honda model
A few old ducks and the aftermath of sugar cotton candy – his “fishing rod” for rice – are always in a state of “ready to go to war”. Oh! I don’t know how many industrious and faithful men can be brought in this life?
