Just ONE Word, But How Can It Be Funny?

Kenapa sesuatu yang lucu sering kali membuat orang bersemangat menuliskan atau menceritakannya kembali? Well, memang sangat menggairahkan menuliskannya lagi dan membuatnya bisa dikenang kembali dan tertawa lagi saat membacanya. Imagine, you're reading it in the next six months and you can still laugh at it. 

Kejadian ini terjadi kemarin. Tepatnya, sore kemarin. Oya, sebagai catatan, semua nama teman yang kusebutkan di sini itu samaran, kecuali nama adikku.

Nah, hari itu, seperti biasa aku latihan Kung Fu bersama adikku, Luqman. Karena sebuah insiden saat senam, jempol kaki kananku keseleo atau entahlah, pokoknya sangat nyeri kalau dipaksa berlatih. Alhasil, selama sisa senam dan latihan jurus, aku hanya bisa duduk di pinggir, memijat-mijat jempolku sambil menonton kawan-kawanku yang sedang memperagakan jurus. Yah, jujur saja, tadi aku sempat memaksakan diri ikut berlatih jurus. Tapi, karena sakit, gerakanku jadi tidak maksimal dan nyerinya semakin terasa. Akhirnya aku meminta izin kepada Fira (teman yang sebayaku tapi sabuknya sudah lebih tinggi dariku)--yang meneriakkan aba-aba untuk kami yang bersabuk biru--untuk beristirahat. Dia mengangguk, mempersilakan.

Begitulah, selama sekitar setengah jam berikutnya, aku tidak bisa mengikuti sesi latihan terakhir, yakni jurus-jurus itu. Sebenarnya aku tak sendiri. Ada Afika, yang katanya mual, dan Rizki--yang keseleo seperti aku, tapi yang sakit jempol sebelah kiri--yang juga sedang duduk beristirahat.

Selesai jurus tradisional Kung Fu, saatnya latihan jurus wushu. Kakak pelatihku mengelompokkan kami sesuai kategori usia. Aku, walaupun tidak ikut latihannya, mengikuti Rifa dan Ela yang satu kategori denganku, dan Fira yang akan melatih kami, ke ruangan yang lebih kecil, tempat yang agak gelap di dekat tangga ke lantai dua. Tempat itu, walaupun sempit, biasa kami gunakan untuk ruangan cadangan latihan, atau biasanya anak-anak yang lebih kecil senang bermain di sana.

Singkat cerita, aku duduk di pinggir, memperhatikan Rifa dan Ela, ditambah Luqman adikku, yang sedang berlatih bersama Fira. Lalu datang Dika, salah satu teman akrab Luqman. Dia mungkin sudah selesai berlatih dan dia mampir ke ruangan kami untuk menonton. Lalu, dia mengambil sebuah tongkat (toya), salah satu alat yang kami gunakan dalam jurus wushu. Bentuknya mirip tongkat pramuka. Dika memegangnya dan pura-pura jadi orang buta, memegang tongkat dan berjalan sambil memejamkan mata.

Dia berseru, "Aku si Buto Ijo!" Kami hanya geleng-geleng melihatnya. Aku sendiri, yang tadinya duduk di tangga, buru-buru menghindar karena takut jempolku terinjak tongkatnya. Karena, dia benar-benar memejamkan mata dan berjalan bolak-balik sambil berseru, "Aku si Buto Ijo dari Gua Hantu!"

Tak lama berselang, datang Davin, salah satu anak sabuk biru yang sudah duduk di kelas 2 SMA, sama dengan Rifa. Dia mendatangi dua orang temannya yang sedang mempelajari sesuatu di ruang belakang, berjarak beberapa meter dari tempat kami latihan. Setelah itu, dia menghampiri kami dan sejenak memperhatikan mereka yang sedang berlatih.

Sementara itu, Dika masih pura-pura jadi orang buta, berjalan mondar-mandir. Lalu dia berdiri di depan Dika dan berseru untuk kesekian kalinya, "Aku si Buto Ijo!"

"Amin!" Davin nyeletuk dengan santai. Kontan saja kami yang mendengar tertawa tergelak-gelak. Aku benar-benar geli mendengarnya. Aku tak tahu apa reaksi Dika, karena aku tidak menoleh ke arahnya, tapi yang jelas dia terdiam sejenak. Walaupun beberapa detik kemudian dia kembali menyerukan 'Aku si Buto Ijo dari Gua Hantu!'.

Aneh juga. Bagaimana mungkin, sebuah kata yang sebenarnya sama sekali tidak lucu, menjadi teramat lucu jika dihubungkan dengan kata-kata Dika sebelumnya. Sampai sekarang aku suka tertawa sendiri mengingat hal itu. Kalau kau tidak tertawa, bayangkan kau melihat langsung kejadian itu, dan kurasa, kau akan tertawa juga. ^_^ []

Joey My Lovely Cat [English Version] Part 2

The next day, Joey suddenly descended by himself. We fed him and let him stayed for a while. But we hadn't decide if he will live here. Putri came again in the afternoon. This time, she came with Naya, Talitha's older sister. Naya saw Joey and look amazed. "Wow, whose cat is that?" she asked. Then, without waited for an answer, she took Joey and bring it home. Putri didn't seen upset when she saw it. She said that one of Joey's parents is Naya's cat, so she has a right to bring Joey. I didn't very agree. So did Luqman. He wasn't willing Joey taken for granted.

A few days later, suddenly Joey was in the yard. Me and mom was confused to see it. How does he got here? Did it escaped from Naya's house? Then a few moments later Naya appeared. I called her and asked why Joey was here. Somewhat sheepishly she said that she couldn't keep Joey anymore. I forgot the reason. Clearly, she returned Joey to us. We were happy to see him again. Mom also liked the cute cat, and because me and Luqman wanted to remain it, mom allowed Joey to live here.

So that's the story of how Joey got here. At this time, Joey was became a great, brave, and fat cat. Joey doesn't like rats, he never like to eat them. Joey isn't a type of a hunter, I guess. He usually relied on food from humans. And he is more incline to like cooked food than raw food. Joey loves to catch cockroaches, butterflies, lizards, and some other small animals. But he never eat them. He just catched it, played with it--pounced and scratched it to death--after that it was abandoned. If we don't feed him, he will went to a neighbor's house and ask for food. That's why Joey remained fat and healthy.

He's an unusual cat, I must admit. Joey is a spoiled cat. He was also very pampered and loved. I've got another kitten that was born a few months after Joey lived here. It was born from a cat that had ever stay in my house when she was still a kitten. She is living wild now, even though she still came here sometimes. Then one day, she gave birth to four kittens in my shed. One of them died at birth. Three others lived to large. My aunt asked for the female ones. Finally, we gave one cat striped three to her, because two others were male. Then, one named Loreng died in disease. Thus, only one in our house. The cat is black and white like Joey, but the white color is more dominant. Therefore he was named Snowy.

Joey is really like to play with Snowy. If Joey is excited, he will pounce and bite Snowy, and then he will licked Snowy's ear. Joey will pounce him again, lick again, and so on. Joey is an active, brave, spoiled, and very-familiar-with-us cat. The other cats we have, like Snowy, were never allowed to get in the house. But Joey doesn't. He always sneak in through the bottom of the table or sofa so he will hard to take. We always leave him alone. In fact, me and Luqman often took him silently into our rooms. Snowy, meanwhile, if he tries to follow Joey into, he will expelled. He looks jealous to Joey, and always try to act like him. But we always ignore him. In short, Joey is good at attracting attention and make people love him. Although he captious and rather naughty, people never get mad at him.

Joey's characteristics: short tail curved inward, so as to form a ball. The color of the tail, back, until ears is black, while the stomach and legs are white. Its fur is smooth, thick and creamy. Joey has black fur near the mouth of the white, making it easily recognizable.

Well, that is the story about Joey. My brother and I had pity on him. He is a special cat. And I must say it now, Joey is a fitting name for him. I can only say it now, if I try to think hard about it, 'Bunny' is too rabbit for him. Joey didn't look like a rabbit anymore when he is grown-up, even though as a child he was like a rabbit with short ears. But I found the name 'Joey's is too short for him, because it consists of only one syilable. So, my family and I add a few words to call him. For example: Jujoey, Surojoyo, and others. I'm sure you would laugh to read it, but that's the truth. Well, his name became more and more bizarre, but it calls pet.

Okay, thats the end of the story. Sorry if my English isn't very good, I still study it. Bye! [The End]

Joey My Lovely Cat [English Version] Part 1

Hello, all my blog visitors! This time, I want to tell you about my cat, Joey. That name is actually a bit odd for a cat. You know what 'Joey' means, right? Yeah, it means kangaroo's child. But, that have a story. Okay, so that you won't be curious, I'll give you the story:

It was all began a few months ago. Precisely, on August 7th, 2015. That day, my friend, Putri, and her cousin, Talitha, came to visit. Then we started to play some games. When I and Putri were resting for a while, I told her about a new book that Olla--my neighbor--has. The title is 'K2Soul Puzzle'. It was the 3rd book of 'Go, Keo! No, Noaki!' series. These months, that series became the talk of me, Putri, Olla, and two other friends. The book by Mrs. Ary Nilandari is indeed different from other books. The idea of the storyline was very interesting for us, the fans of novels.

Well, I told Putri a little of the content of the book. She became very interested, and she asked me to bring her to Olla's house, right behind my house. I agreed, so I took out my bike and bring Talitha on the bicycle rack, while Putri walked alone. Luqman, my little brother, also came with his own bike. Olla was doing her English homework in the terrace when we arrived. She welcomed up happily. She gave the book to Putri, and asked me to helped her with the homework, and I was happy to help. We sat and started to work on it. Meanwhile, Putri flipped the pages with enthusiastic. She saw a picture of Keo, the main character of the story, which was holding a striped kitten. Putri seemed very interested in that cat.
Then, me and Olla had so much fun chatted, we didn't realize that Putri disappeared. Before we wondered where she was, she reappeared, carried a black-and-white kitten. Judging from its fur, it was an Angora cat. Me and Luqman immediately welcomed it. The kitten was very cute.

Putri said the parents of the kitten was not both Angora. One of them was only domestic cat. Then Putri said that the cat is Joey. Me and Olla rejected it. Joey in the story has three stripes, while this cat has only two. But Putri stubbornly insisted it is Joey. Luqman, who loves cats, want to maintain it. But we doubt whether it is acceptable. Well, finally, the cat was taken to my house. Olla came, too.

Then we started to negotiate what should we named the kitten. Putri--with the support of Luqman--insisted it is Joey. But me and Olla opposed. I think he better named Bunny, because he ran like a rabbit. None of us want to budge, so Putri asked for Talitha's opinions. She gives the option: Joey, Bunny, or Heart. What, HEART?! No one requested that name. I was confused. Talitha chose Heart, and that made Putri confused herself. Then she filled a second choice. Joey or Bunny. Talitha chose Bunny. Well, me and Olla have had the pleasure. But Joey requester didn't accept.

Putri repeated the question to Talitha, even though me and Olla protested. Of course, IT'S NOT FAIR! And maybe, because Talitha is more familiar with Putri, she suddenly knew what Putri wanted. She chose Joey this time. Luqman and Putri cheered, but me and Olla guffed. It's a tie score. 1-1. For the final decision, Putri asked Talitha again. And again too, she chose Joey. Me and Olla could not protested. So the cat's name is Joey after all. Then the next question is: where he should stay? The kitten was too small to be released in the wild. Putri can't adopt him, because she already had a cat. So did me and Luqman. We weren't so sure if mom will allowed us to keep a cat.

Before we had decide, Joey suddenly ran and climbed to the roof. Luqman catched it-he is a well climber, you know--to pick it up. But mom banned him to get Joey down. Anyway, the kitten got into a narrow hole and would not come out. Luqman could not got him out after all. Because it was late, we disbanded and Joey remained stuck there. [To be continued]

Music, My Best Friend

Hi, guys! Kalian tahu obat apa yang paling manjur untuk: sedih, kesal, bete, stress, frustrasi, depresi, dll.? Ini untuk sebagian orang ya, termasuk aku :) Jawabannya, musik d/a lagu! Aku kan pernah mengisi tes Multiple Intelligence, hasilnya aku itu Musical, Language (Linguistic), dan Social.
Jadilah, bagiku, music is my daily routines. Pelipur hatiku, penghiburku, sahabatku.

Oya, jangan kalian pikir musik penghiburku itu musik rock atau semacamnya. Biasanya yang kunyalakan itu lagu nasyid, lagu pop, atau lagu sedih. Mungkin aneh kedengarannya, tapi lagu-lagu itu melegakanku. Mungkin tidak bagi kalian yang suka lagu-lagu bersemangat ya :D

Jadi, kalau kalian stress, bete, atau semacamnya, coba dengerin musik. Mungkin berpengaruh, mungkin juga tidak. Jadi jangan terlalu percaya dulu ya, soalnya siapa tahu gagal bagi sebagian orang, hehehe :D

dan berkembang biak dengan spora.

Anggota Kingdom Fungi (dibagi berdasarkan cara reproduksinya)
  • Zigomycotina = zigospora
