Kẻ lai vãng cửa chùa

Tản văn

1.

Tánh anh nóng nảy, nổi cộc lên thì coi hung lắm, phải đi chùa cho nó trầm tính lại”. Đã một thời, nhiều lần vợ tôi đã nhận xét và đề nghị như vậy.

Ngày xưa, bố tôi theo Tây học, từ Bắc vào Nam làm báo, ra cả báo Pháp và dịch sách, tánh khí nghệ sĩ, phóng dật, khiến cho căn nhà nhỏ của gia đình ở khu Đa Kao thời đó thỉnh thoảng lại chộn rộn cái không khí văn chương chữ nghĩa. Có lần, lấy cớ cần khui một chai rượu chát rất xưa, bố tôi mời vài người bạn thân đến nhà chơi. Cần nói thêm là trong bạn bè của bố tôi thời đó, tôi khoái một bác cùng dân Bắc kỳ, để chút râu kiểu Hitler dưới mũi, thường phong nhã với bộ cánh veston, foulard…,  đó là nhà thơ/nhà văn TCHYA Đái Đức Tuấn. Núp phía sau một bức bình phong, tôi lén theo dõi người lớn nói đủ thứ chuyện trên đời. Chợt tôi nghe bác TCHYA cười, vỗ vai bố tôi, gật gù bảo: “…Vậy là toa cũng rất libéral về vấn đề tôn giáo!”.
