Toate au un preț

mai 7, 2015

La clasa 0 (nu suport să spun „pregătitoare”, plus că îmi pierd răbdarea cu atâtea silabe pentru un nivel așa mic), învățăm câte ceva de mâncat. Printre altele, covrigel.
– This is aaa… pretzel! (pronuntat PREȚăl) Pretzel! What’s this?
Iar pruncalăii repetă. După ce trecem la altă bunăciune de mâncat (care de care mai nesănătoase), revin la covrig, să mă asigur că nu s-au sclerozat între timp.
– Mai țineți minte covrigelul? What’s this?
Iar o fetiță foarte pe fază, se repede:
-Etichetă!!!

40-Love

martie 3, 2012

Vă vâr sub ochi un poem citit în facultate care mi-a rămas lipit de minte și de suflet peste ani. L-am popularizat și în alte grupuri, am căutat să-mi amintesc dacă nu l-am publicat deja aici, am și căutat pe bune prin blog. Se pare că nu. (Pentru mine) Merită să vi-l arăt, pentru că invită la descifrat și pentru a vedea cum îl înțelegeți, ce observați în el, dacă (nu) vă place și de ce. Sau spuneți despre el ceea ce vi se pare că merită spus.
