Panic in the Morning

cerita pendek/short story

via Daily Prompt: Panic


Pagi hari. Kau terlambat bangun. Mandi terburu-buru. Berpakaian dengan gerakan kilat. Tiba-tiba lupa dimana meletakkan dasi dan kaos kakimu sementara waktu terus bergulir. Kau sudah hampir yakin kalau kau akan terlambat. Frustasi lantaran tetap tak berhasil menemukan dasi dan kaos kaki—meski lemarimu nyaris kau obrak-abrik—akhirnya kau berteriak pasrah.

“Maaah, dasi sama kaos kaki di mana ya?”

Ibumu muncul di kamar sambil menggelengkan kepala. “Kan sudah Mama bilang cari dulu. Tadi malam kamu sendiri yang taruh di lemari.”

“Nggak ketemu … ” sahutmu cemberut. Sudah terlambat, masih diomeli pula.

Tidak sampai lima menit ketika ibumu mengangkat dasi dan kaos kaki tepat di depan hidungmu, sedangkan kamu hanya bisa meringis malu.

“Makanya, cari itu pakai mata. Jangan pakai mulut.”

Duh, skatmat!

Morning came. You were overslept. Showered and dressed in a hurry. Suddenly, you forgot where were you put your tie and socks while time was ticking. You almost sure you would be late arrive in school. Feeling frustrated because you couldn’t find them—even if your wardrobe now in a mess—finally you yelled.

“Mom, where are my tie and socks?”

Your mom came to your room and shook her hear disapprovingly. “I’ve told you to look for them first. Besides last night you put them in wardrobe yourself.”

“I can’t find them … ” you said and pout. You’re late and still getting scolded.

Not even five minutes, your mom lifted the tie and socks in front of your nose, while you only embarrassed grimace.

“That’s why, look for something using your eyes, not your mouth.”

Duh, checkmate!
