“Lihat deh, si preman itu belanja sayur sama tempe. Lucu, ‘kan?”

Kebiasaan ibu-ibu pergi ke pasar di pagi hari adalah belanja—dan bergosip.

“Jangan keras-keras Jeng kalau ngomong, nanti kita digorok, ‘duh.” Wanita paruh baya dengan daster warna merah berbisik. “Bahaya. Lengah sedikit, leher melayang.”

“Mas preman belanja karena dipaksa belanja sama ibunya, tahu.” Giliran si pedagang cabai yang ikut nimbrung. Lantas ditanggapi oleh vokal ‘O’ bersamaan.

“Sangar-sangar begitu, dia masih nurut sama orang tua. Takut kualat.”

Gosip pagi ini pun ditutup dengan khidmat oleh pedagang cabai. “Sepertinya, kita harus belajar mengasihi orang tua dari mas preman, deh.”
